Today marks the 68th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.
Today is a Maddie day. She's growing like a little weed. She makes all kinds of funny noises and laughs a lot!
I have to make a list of everything that needs to be done. I tend to lose focus unless I work from a list. So far today I have started the laundry, packaged a batch of peppermint soap, assembled a website order, fed and played with Madison, made a lowcarb cheesecake, and ordered the presents that Harold is responsible for.
The rest of the day will be a "put things where they belong" day.
Website orders are down to a manageable level now and I am slowly working my way around the house This week is zone 2 - the kitchen, but I am hitting all of the zones because they are all pretty messy.
Today I also want to make a couple batches of soap - lilac and I can't remember the other kind I had to make. I think it was Raspberry jasmine spice. I also need to make candles, but Colleen took all of our sniffer samples to work so I will see what she needs before I make any more.
Word of the day:
Monday of the Second week of Advent
Today the Church celebrates : St. Ambrose, Bishop and Doctor of the Church - Memorial
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 5:17-26.
One day as Jesus was teaching, Pharisees and teachers of the law were sitting there who had come from every village of Galilee and Judea and Jerusalem, and the power of the Lord was with him for healing. And some men brought on a stretcher a man who was paralyzed; they were trying to bring him in and set (him) in his presence. But not finding a way to bring him in because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and lowered him on the stretcher through the tiles into the middle in front of Jesus. When he saw their faith, he said, "As for you, your sins are forgiven." Then the scribes and Pharisees began to ask themselves, "Who is this who speaks blasphemies? Who but God alone can forgive sins?" Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them in reply, "What are you thinking in your hearts? Which is easier, to say, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Rise and walk'? But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins''--he said to the man who was paralyzed, "I say to you, rise, pick up your stretcher, and go home." He stood up immediately before them, picked up what he had been lying on, and went home, glorifying God. Then astonishment seized them all and they glorified God, and, struck with awe, they said, "We have seen incredible things today."
