We are shipping out one last stocking today. It was a last minute order, and even though we don't normally take new orders in December, I couldn't resist this one because it made an even 150 stockings that we did this year.
I have the usual ton of stuff to do today. Madison will be here. The house is still a wreck. Quilt club meets tonight and I haven't been there in a while.
We had a get together at Howard and Colleen's yesterday. It was a nice laid back day. Ate too much, but that's how it goes.
Word of the day:
Monday of the Third week of Advent
Today the Church celebrates : St. John of the Cross, Doctor of the Church (1542-1591)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 21:23-27.

And who gave you this authority?" Jesus said to them in reply, "I shall ask you one question, and if you answer it for me, then I shall tell you by what authority I do these things. Where was John's baptism from? Was it of heavenly or of human origin?" They discussed this among themselves and said, "If we say 'Of heavenly origin,' he will say to us, 'Then why did you not believe him?' But if we say, 'Of human origin,' we fear the crowd, for they all regard John as a prophet." So they said to Jesus in reply, "We do not know." He himself said to them, "Neither shall I tell you by what authority I do these things.
