After he had created the woman, the eternal Father gave her his duties: the children, the house, the laundry, the cooking and things went smoothly for some time.
He was still putting the finishing touches on the world when a woman came to him and said to him: "Domeneddio, I've already done everything, what should I do?".
«Did you raise the children?». 
«Have you tidied up the house?».
"An hour in the morning is enough for me."
"Have you done your laundry?"
"What do you want three hours a week to be?"
"And the kitchen?".
“A few hours a day, and what do I do the rest?”
«What are you doing... what are you doing... Hold this distaff and this spindle and spin». The woman left, but shortly after she reappeared saying: "Domineddio, I've already spun."
«Small world, but you're a lightning bolt... Well, take these needles and make a sock».
It was almost a coming and going that the woman, once again, was there, in front of Domineddio who had a lot to do.
«Domineddio, I've already made the stocking. See how good I am."
«I see, I see... Well, take this needle and embroider».
But it wasn't long before, although she had become a bit old, she came back like a lark looking for something to do, because she had also finished embroidering. The Lord then placed a rosary in his hand and said to him:
«Take this and pray, when you have nothing else to do!».
Unfortunately, not even the crown was enough for her and here she was again after a while asking for some work.
Domineddio then thought about it carefully and gave her a lot, saying:
«When you have time left, open this lie».
The old lady went home and, since she had done everything, immediately opened the mouth of the bag, from which thousands of fleas came out and went off into the world.
From that day on the woman always had work and Domineddio never saw her again to ask if there was anything to do. 


«For Santa Giustina (the 7th) all the grapes are in the cellar»

Even in October the vegetable garden requires its own care and attention. As for some varieties, such as basil, tomatoes, grapes and peppers, this month the latest gifts from nature are harvested. It's time to go for chestnuts and mushrooms, to finish the grape harvest and to start harvesting olives, if you're lucky enough.
Those who have a home vegetable garden will have to prepare the soil in the flower beds and pots to accommodate autumn sowing, collect the aromatic herbs to dry, think about sowing in seedbeds or in the open ground and transplant the seedlings that need more space. All without forgetting the lunar calendar. The moon will be full on October 12, 2019. And it will be waning until October 4 and from October 20 to 26, 2019.
Those who fear frost or those who only have a vegetable garden on the balcony can think of sowing rocket, lettuce, spinach, lettuce and lettuce in the seedbed. Seedlings can be created using containers whose bottom can be easily pierced, such as yoghurt jars or egg cartons, which will be filled with soil, in which to place a few seeds at a time and then possibly select the most resistant seedlings before planting. transplant

The Recipe of the Saints

Rocciata Di Assisi

Ingredients for 4 people: 200 g. of “00” white flour, 1 tablespoon of extra olive oil, 50 g of sugar, 30 g. of butter, salt. For the filling: 100 g. of sugar, 1 tablespoon of raisins, 1 tablespoon of almonds, 1 tablespoon of walnut kernels, 2 dried figs, 4 dried plums, 1 apple, 2 tablespoons of extra olive oil, 2 tablespoons of Vin Santo, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, 1 untreated lemon.
Make cubes with the dried fruit and the peeled and cored apple; add the sugar, oil, Vin Santo, cinnamon and grated lemon zest, mixing. Cover and let macerate. Mix the flour with the oil, sugar, a pinch of salt, adding warm water as needed to obtain a dough with a soft consistency. Let the dough rest, then roll it out with a rolling pin into a sheet that is not too thin. Place the fruit filling in the center, then roll up. Place the roll on a buttered baking tray and brush with olive oil. Bake at 180° for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with icing sugar to taste and serve the Rocciata cut into slices.
Not everyone knows that this traditional dessert owes its name to the characteristic shape that resembles a donut. In the local dialect, in fact, "round" is also called "rock".
