We had our craft show at the Shepherd VFW last night. It was a total bust. This is officially the worst attended show we have been to and that includes last year's fiasco in Ithaca. If organizers have done all they can with advertising etc, then that's one thing. There was very litte, if any, advertising for this at all. It's too bad because it could have been a nice little show. We won't be going back next year - we are too strapped at this time of year. :(
Gained some time this morning, though. The kids didn't have school so there was no getting anyone on the bus. Since I was up already and Madison was due at 8:00 I got some laundry done.
Today I have to finish laundry, pay bills, I've already done the folders for Friday and this weekend, I have to check inventory for Saturday and look at music for the Christmas choir.

The Dedication of the Lateran Basilica in Rome - Feast
Today the Church celebrates : Dedication of St. John Lateran (Feast)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 2:13-22.
Since the Passover of the Jews was near, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. He found in the temple area those who sold oxen, sheep, and doves, as well as the money-changers seated there. He made a whip out of cords and drove them all out of the temple area, with the sheep and oxen, and spilled the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables, and to those who sold doves he said, "Take these out of here, and stop making my Father's house a marketplace." His disciples recalled the words of scripture, "Zeal for your house will consume me." At this the Jews answered and said to him, "What sign can you show us for doing this?" Jesus answered and said to them, "Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up." The Jews said, "This temple has been under construction for forty-six years, and you will raise it up in three days?" But he was speaking about the temple of his body. Therefore, when he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this, and they came to believe the scripture and the word Jesus had spoken.
