We had our first craft show of the season yesterday. This is first show we've ever done that we haven't improved from the previous year. We were a little disappointed, but also surprised at what did and didn't sell. You just never know what to take to a show and as a result we often end up taking way too much. There are so many variables. We are in Michigan so the economy may finally be catching up with us. We're keeping close tabs on inventory this year to see what the trends are.
I have a wake service tonight and a funeral tomorrow, so I won't get to see Maddie MacDoogle. But Clairy-bear will be here - except for when I have to drop her at the sitter's house.
I have ten stockings to get made today. I got up about 5:30, but there are just some days that I would be better off not trying to do things. This was one of those days. Everything I touched I managed to botch up. I did get some stockings done this afternoon and I have a batch to ship out tomorrow.

Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : St. Anthony Mary Claret, Archbishop (1807-1870)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 18:9-14.
Jesus addressed this parable to those who were convinced of their own righteousness and despised everyone else. Two people went up to the temple area to pray; one was a Pharisee and the other was a tax collector. The Pharisee took up his position and spoke this prayer to himself, 'O God, I thank you that I am not like the rest of humanity--greedy, dishonest, adulterous--or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week, and I pay tithes on my whole income.' But the tax collector stood off at a distance and would not even raise his eyes to heaven but beat his breast and prayed, 'O God, be merciful to me a sinner.' I tell you, the latter went home justified, not the former; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted."
