Finally, I'm catching up on chores. Out of all the stuff I had to do this week, I have it scaled down to 4 stockings, a set of grungy tags, and I need to finish measuring the oils for 5 batches of soap. Plain olive oil will be my next soap batch. I sold the last of it yesterday. I have one customer whose daughter needs it due to nut allergies. Most soap has coconut oil in it and she's allergic. Olive oil soap, because it is 100% liquid oils, takes a lot longer to cure so I need to make it soon. My customer ordered a dozen bars yesterday so hopefully this batch will cure before she runs out. I should probably make a couple batches. Since I am only dealing with one oil, it is much simpler to make.
Word of the day:
The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus - Solemnity
Today the Church celebrates : St. Barnabas, Apostle
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 15:3-7.
So to them he addressed this parable. What man among you having a hundred sheep and losing one of them would not leave the ninety-nine in the desert and go after the lost one until he finds it? And when he does find it, he sets it on his shoulders with great joy and, upon his arrival home, he calls together his friends and neighbors and says to them, 'Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.' I tell you, in just the same way there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people who have no need of repentance.
