I managed to get something accomplished yesterday. I finally got all of the laundry put away. I packed the honey, oats & milk soap, the berry pickin', the country apple, and the olive oil. Got a little bit of straightening done down in the craft dungeon. I've been sadly remiss in the making of Christmas stockings.

I worked on a friend's afghan last night - her grandson is getting married in October. Years ago she went to Ireland brought back some Irish wool that has been sitting in my closet all that time.

I made a chicken pot pie for Sam and Kelli yesterday and of course I had to run it over there and take a peek at Madison. Daddy was just coming out of her room and informed me that she had smiled at him. I tiptoed in and brushed my finger across her cheek and was rewarded with a smile too. :)

I finally got all of my bases covered at church for when we go on our trip. Now I just have to make tapes for the cantors and make sure all the music they need will be in the folders.

Today Clay and Claire are coming to spend the morning and to eat "peanut-jelly sammiches" for lunch.

Clay and Claire got here about 10:00. We went across the road to pick a surprise for Mommy.

Hmmmmmm, What do you think of this?



The good Brigadier General was much more polite than I would have been.

Word of the day:
The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus - Solemnity
Today the Church celebrates : St. Juliana Falconieri, (1270-1340), St. Romuald
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 19:31-37.


Now since it was preparation day, in order that the bodies might not remain on the cross on the sabbath, for the sabbath day of that week was a solemn one, the Jews asked Pilate that their legs be broken and they be taken down. So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first and then of the other one who was crucified with Jesus. But when they came to Jesus and saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs, but one soldier thrust his lance into his side, and immediately blood and water flowed out. An eyewitness has testified, and his testimony is true; he knows that he is speaking the truth, so that you also may (come to) believe. For this happened so that the scripture passage might be fulfilled: "Not a bone of it will be broken." And again another passage says: "They will look upon him whom they have pierced."
