I had Meghan and Madison this morning and after they went home I had to run to Mt. P. because King H is out of coffee creamer. I didn't mind because I know how attached I am to MY morning coffee with creamer. I just received an order of coffee from another family business. Of course, it is my job to test our new products. OMG. Right now I am drinking decaf pumpkin spice. It smells like a coffee shop in here. If this doesn't sell, it won't break my heart because I am pretty sure I can handle using it myself. The other flavors are Maple Syrup, Apple Cobbler, Autumn Harvest, Caramel Apple and another that I can't think of at the moment.
When I got home from Mount Pleasant I had just enough time to finish a new grungy tealight that we will have available for the October shows. When I get a creative strike, nothing else gets done. Today was laundry day. It didn't get done. :) Last night I made a snowman tealight. I loved it so much,
that I had to do an autumn one. I love grungy primitives and these are very grungy. LOL!
Clayton had a soccer game today in Shepherd so I headed up there to watch it. Saw some family and friends, and a former student with her adorable baby. I love living in a small town.
We've been trying not to spend any more money than necessary, but I'm afraid we are keeping with our tradition of going into the fall craft shows in the hole. And I had a big shock last week when one of the organizers of one of our biggest shows said that she had not heard from us and did we still plan to be at the show. I found a copy of the information along with the check, but could find no record of the check being cashed. She said she didn't think we would be able to have the second space that we have had in the past. (We usually have a 10x10 and a 10x12) I was just sick. This is the Keepsake Collection show in Mt. Pleasant and we have begun to have a good following there. But she called back and said that she was able to get another 10x10 space. I am grateful it was available - and in the same place we've always been. I am so glad she thought to call us - that was above and beyond and I really appreciate it!!
At the moment we are caught up on Christmas stockings, but generally things start to jump around October 15. We shall see.
Monday of the Twenty-eighth week in Ordinary Time
Feast of the Church : In Canada : Thanksgiving Day
Saint(s) of the day : St. Francis Borgia, Priest (1510-1572)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 11:29-32.
While still more people gathered in the crowd, Jesus said to them, «This generation is an evil generation; it seeks a sign, but no sign will be given it, except the sign of Jonah.
Just as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so will the Son of Man be to this generation.
At the judgment the queen of the south will rise with the men of this generation and she will condemn them, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and there is something greater than Solomon here.
At the judgment the men of Nineveh will arise with this generation and condemn it, because at the preaching of Jonah they repented, and there is something greater than Jonah here.
