It's really foggy out - the weather has been so warm. We've only had 2 boilings this year. I hope we're not done for the season.

Today Harold and I go and pick out flooring for the bathroom. I'm feeling a little less anxious about the whole project. Change makes me feel very insecure. Yes, I'm glad we're updating the bathroom, but when familiar things leave, it makes me melancholy. It was the same way with the kitchen so I know it will pass. Harold and Howard are working really hard. It amazes me how long they can work at a stretch. When we did the kitchen, we hired someone to do it and he came and went as he pleased and the job took a month longer than it should have. At the rate Harold and Howard are going, this will be done by next week - at least as much of of it as they can do. We hired someone to make the vanity.

Word of the day:
Friday of the Third week of Lent
Today the Church celebrates : St Maximilian, St. Luigi Orione, Priest (1872-1940)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 12:28-34.


One of the scribes, when he came forward and heard them disputing and saw how well he had answered them, asked him, "Which is the first of all the commandments?" Jesus replied, "The first is this: 'Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is Lord alone! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.' The second is this: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these." The scribe said to him, "Well said, teacher. You are right in saying, 'He is One and there is no other than he.' And 'to love him with all your heart, with all your understanding, with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself' is worth more than all burnt offerings and sacrifices." And when Jesus saw that (he) answered with understanding, he said to him, "You are not far from the kingdom of God." And no one dared to ask him any more questions.
