Tons of stuff to do today. I'll breathe a lot easier when this week is over. I got virtually no cleaning done yesterday, but I did get a lot of stockings done - 3 more and I'll be caught up. I have to go to the eye doctor today. I can't really afford the time, but the last time I was there, the eye doctor found cataracts and I think it's getting to the point that they have to be removed.
I have a batch of maple creme fudge to make and I may try to make a batch of maple walnut so I tomorrow will be free to get ready for the choir party. The CDs will be in - whoo hoo!!! I was hoping they would get here in time to give them out at the party.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 11:47-54.
Woe to you! You build the memorials of the prophets whom your ancestors killed. Consequently, you bear witness and give consent to the deeds of your ancestors, for they killed them and you do the building. Therefore, the wisdom of God said, 'I will send to them prophets and apostles; some of them they will kill and persecute' in order that this generation might be charged with the blood of all the prophets shed since the foundation of the world, from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah who died between the altar and the temple building. Yes, I tell you, this generation will be charged with their blood! Woe to you, scholars of the law! You have taken away the key of knowledge. You yourselves did not enter and you stopped those trying to enter." When he left, the scribes and Pharisees began to act with hostility toward him and to interrogate him about many things, for they were plotting to catch him at something he might say.
