Today has been fairly productive so far.
This week's Fly Zone was the kitchen. I did do some decluttering in the kitchen, but the laundry room is the place that was stressing me out so I decided to depart from the official Fly Zone and work in there. I divided the laundry room up into zones and started in. Here is a before and after pic of my first zone in the laundry room.

Here is zone 2, the desk - usually pretty bad

I also packaged 3 batches of soap and got a load of laundry done and folded.

Last night we had little Maddie over so of course we had to do a photo shoot.
These are my 2 favorite shots. I wish the smiling one wasn't fuzzy.






Maddie's coming again tonight. Another photo shoot!!!! LOL!

THE ASSUMPTION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY - Solemnity
Today the Church celebrates : St. Tarsicius, Martyr (3rd century)
Saint Germanus of Constantinople : "Raised body and soul to the glory of heaven" (Collect of the Feast)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 1:39-56.


During those days Mary set out and traveled to the hill country in haste to a town of Judah, where she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the infant leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth, filled with the holy Spirit, cried out in a loud voice and said, "Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. And how does this happen to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For at the moment the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy. Blessed are you who believed that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled." And Mary said: "My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior. For he has looked upon his handmaid's lowliness; behold, from now on will all ages call me blessed. The Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name. His mercy is from age to age to those who fear him. He has shown might with his arm, dispersed the arrogant of mind and heart. He has thrown down the rulers from their thrones but lifted up the lowly. The hungry he has filled with good things; the rich he has sent away empty. He has helped Israel his servant, remembering his mercy, according to his promise to our fathers, to Abraham and to his descendants forever." Mary remained with her about three months and then returned to her home.
