Got a lot done yesterday. The spare bedroom and the workout room look decent. I got everything cleared out of the east end of the hallway. The rest of the hallway is not great, but at least Mom has a place to sleep. Most of the stuff went downstairs, but that's okay - it's out of the main area and I can sort when I wait for wax to melt.

I made a batch of Crisp Green Apple soap last night so the smell of fall is in the air around here.

After lunch I am heading to Mt. P and stopping at Sam and Kelli's to try on Maddie's dress. I think it turned out pretty well. I'm a little bummed that the dress yarn I ordered never came through.

Friday of the Twenty-first week in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : St. Augustine, bishop and doctor of the Church
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 25:1-13.


Then the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones, when taking their lamps, brought no oil with them, but the wise brought flasks of oil with their lamps. Since the bridegroom was long delayed, they all became drowsy and fell asleep. At midnight, there was a cry, 'Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!' Then all those virgins got up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.' But the wise ones replied, 'No, for there may not be enough for us and you. Go instead to the merchants and buy some for yourselves.' While they went off to buy it, the bridegroom came and those who were ready went into the wedding feast with him. Then the door was locked. Afterwards the other virgins came and said, 'Lord, Lord, open the door for us!' But he said in reply, 'Amen, I say to you, I do not know you.' Therefore, stay awake, for you know neither the day nor the hour.
