As I write this I am looking out the window at the frost covering the ground. That last 2 tomatoes from our garden are ripening on the windowsill. Our tomato crop was a bit pitiful due to blight, but I did get 20 quarts of spaghetti sauce out of the deal. Harold covered the peppers.

I usually love Thursdays, but today I have a staff meeting. Not my favorite way to start the day, but still, I am grateful to have a job that allows me to help out with the grandkids and to do the stuff for our website.

I've been working on primitive soap. I love the primitive soap because it lets me use my detailed molds. I have been searching for my wildlife molds but I can't find them. I think today I will concentrate on getting my work area organized. It was looking good there for a while, but then I cleaned out the spare bedroom which had been housing a lot of the Sugar Bush stuff and now it's a pit again.

I'm off to the meeting where we will be discussing feminist Christology. Give me a break.

Update 1:00 pm: I'm home from the staff meeting and my castor oil and room spray bottles are here. Guess I will finish measuring oils for my soap batches in between re-claiming my work space from clutter.

Update 5:00 pm: I have finished measuring out all of the oils for my soap batches. Packaged up some laundry soap, poured some tarts, and moved some stuff. Still haven't found my wildlife molds.

Word of the day:
Thursday of the Twenty-sixth week in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : St. Therese of Lisieux, Virgin & Doctor of the Church (1873-1897)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 10:1-12.

After this the Lord appointed seventy (-two) others whom he sent ahead of him in pairs to every town and place he intended to visit. He said to them, "The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest. Go on your way; behold, I am sending you like lambs among wolves. Carry no money bag, no sack, no sandals; and greet no one along the way. Into whatever house you enter, first say, 'Peace to this household.' If a peaceful person lives there, your peace will rest on him; but if not, it will return to you. Stay in the same house and eat and drink what is offered to you, for the laborer deserves his payment. Do not move about from one house to another. Whatever town you enter and they welcome you, eat what is set before you, cure the sick in it and say to them, 'The kingdom of God is at hand for you.' Whatever town you enter and they do not receive you, go out into the streets and say, 'The dust of your town that clings to our feet, even that we shake off against you.' Yet know this: the kingdom of God is at hand. I tell you, it will be more tolerable for Sodom on that day than for that town.
