Okay, so I took a personal day because I absolutely had to in order to catch up. I started the day with a dentist appointment - always fun. From there I had a couple of deliveries to make. (How creepy is it when an undertaker calls you and says "I want to smell like dirt." It's really not that creepy. I had promised him some scent masking soap for deer hunting.) After my trip to the funeral home I headed for the local cake place to pick up some bags for packaging.
Came home, took an order for 2 more stockings, made 2 batches of snack mix and one batch of fudge, packaged yesterday's fudge and cut up samples. Tied the homespun on my lamps for the craft show on Saturday, took an order for wax tarts but was short one scent so I made a batch of those and will make another batch tonight, hauled the bins for the craft show over to the stairs, put a batch of cookies in the oven for Harold to take deer hunting and - thanks to something to do with the fuses, there will be no relaxing in front of the TV because nothing is coming in on any channel and that won't get fixed until next week when Harold has time.
I still have to package the last batch of fudge, cut up those samples, wash and fold the table covers, load Melisa's van with the bins for the show, make chicken pot pie and 4 more batches of cookies, make a couple of stockings, and get a little bit of picking up done because the house is driving me nuts oh, and wash some clothes for Harold that he needs for his hunting trip. Other than that - it's been a very relaxing day.
Word of the day:
Memorial of Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, virgin
Asked by the Pharisees when the Kingdom of God would come,
Jesus said in reply,
“The coming of the Kingdom of God cannot be observed,
and no one will announce, ‘Look, here it is,’ or, ‘There it is.’
For behold, the Kingdom of God is among you.”
Then he said to his disciples,
“The days will come when you will long to see
one of the days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it.
There will be those who will say to you,
‘Look, there he is,’ or ‘Look, here he is.’
Do not go off, do not run in pursuit.
For just as lightning flashes
and lights up the sky from one side to the other,
so will the Son of Man be in his day.
But first he must suffer greatly and be rejected by this generation.”
God bless our troops!
