Happy Valentine's Day everyone! As I look out the window I am greeted by the lovely pristine sight of SNOW. Oh well, this is Michigan. At least the temp is in the double digits. The Hubster and I went out to dinner last night. He's been in Kentucky the last three days so he felt the cold a lot more than I did!

My spray bottles came in so I will be making the rest of my room sprays this afternoon. I've never figured out why the commercial spray and plug-in makers can't duplicate my favorite scents, but I guess I'm glad they can't. That way I can make my own. I will probably make a batch of laundry soap too. I could most likely buy that just as cheap as I make it, but I like using my odds and ends of soap. Makes me feel like Ma Ingalls. LOL!

Well, I am off to go for a walk in the country on this beautiful day. I'm not really ready for winter to end just yet. Then I would have to put all of my snowmen away.

Word of the day:
Memorial of Saint Cyril, monk, and Saint Methodius, bishop Gospel
Mk 8:1-10


In those days when there again was a great crowd without anything to eat,
Jesus summoned the disciples and said,
"My heart is moved with pity for the crowd,
because they have been with me now for three days
and have nothing to eat.
If I send them away hungry to their homes,
they will collapse on the way,
and some of them have come a great distance."
His disciples answered him, "Where can anyone get enough bread
to satisfy them here in this deserted place?"
Still he asked them, "How many loaves do you have?"
They replied, "Seven."
He ordered the crowd to sit down on the ground.
Then, taking the seven loaves he gave thanks, broke them,
and gave them to his disciples to distribute,
and they distributed them to the crowd.
They also had a few fish.
He said the blessing over them
and ordered them distributed also.
They ate and were satisfied.
They picked up the fragments left over—seven baskets.
There were about four thousand people.
He dismissed the crowd and got into the boat with his disciples
and came to the region of Dalmanutha.


God bless our troops!
