Sheeesh, I don't know how I got anything done when I worked at the school. I envisioned retirement as an endless stream of free time. It's not working out that way and I'm not sure where the time is disappearing to. Of course, I didn't put a meal on at noon when Harold and I were both working. That's about and hour and a half a day right there. Even with grandkids here, I can get other things done, so I'm not sure where the time leakage is coming from. I think when there is a lot of time available it's easy to waste it, but then I am also getting a lot of inventory filled in so maybe I am just being to critical of myself.
Today I start in with the pillar wax items that I mentioned yesterday.
I have been so lazy today. The day didn't start real well. Staff meeting days usually don't. Then I went up town to get a new cord for the laptop, and that one didn't work. Then I didn't really feel like doing much. Just felt a little down today - until Clay and Claire came. They always cheer me up.
I think I'll go down and pour some candles, but first I have to update my other blog.
Word of the day:
Thursday of the Second week of Lent
Today the Church celebrates : St. Casimir, King (1458-1484) - Memorial
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 16:19-31.
There was a rich man who dressed in purple garments and fine linen and dined sumptuously each day. And lying at his door was a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, who would gladly have eaten his fill of the scraps that fell from the rich man's table. Dogs even used to come and lick his sores. When the poor man died, he was carried away by angels to the bosom of Abraham. The rich man also died and was buried, and from the netherworld, where he was in torment, he raised his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus at his side. And he cried out, 'Father Abraham, have pity on me. Send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am suffering torment in these flames.' Abraham replied, 'My child, remember that you received what was good during your lifetime while Lazarus likewise received what was bad; but now he is comforted here, whereas you are tormented. Moreover, between us and you a great chasm is established to prevent anyone from crossing who might wish to go from our side to yours or from your side to ours.' He said, 'Then I beg you, father, send him to my father's house, for I have five brothers, so that he may warn them, lest they too come to this place of torment.' But Abraham replied, 'They have Moses and the prophets. Let them listen to them.' He said, 'Oh no, father Abraham, but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.' Then Abraham said, 'If they will not listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded if someone should rise from the dead.'"
