I can remember 25 years ago today.  It doesn't seem possible that it's been that long.  We had just come home from getting our taxes done.  Back then, since neither of us worked off the farm, we had to file earlier.  I remember watching in disbelief as the Challenger exploded.

It was a horrifyingly amazing site; one I hope never to see again.

I have been off sugar for several days now and while my body feels much better, my head is stuff and I can't stop sneezing.  Last night I started Justin's quilt.  If you don't enlarge the picture and see the mis-matches at some of the seams, it looks pretty good.

Friday of the Third week in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : St. Thomas Aquinas, Priest & Doctor of the Church (+ 1274) - Memorial
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 4:26-34.

He said,"This is how it is with the kingdom of God; it is as if a man were to scatter seed on the land and would sleep and rise night and day and the seed would sprout and grow, he knows not how. Of its own accord the land yields fruit, first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear. And when the grain is ripe, he wields the sickle at once, for the harvest has come." He said, "To what shall we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable can we use for it? It is like a mustard seed that, when it is sown in the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on the earth. But once it is sown, it springs up and becomes the largest of plants and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the sky can dwell in its shade." With many such parables he spoke the word to them as they were able to understand it. Without parables he did not speak to them, but to his own disciples he explained everything in private.
