It's warm and humid again today. I have the basement fan going so it is bearable, but of all the weather conditions I like the least, it would be humidity.
We had a family reunion yesterday and it poured most of the day, but it was still fun.
Today I make soap - probably peppermint, but we'll see. I may put that off for tomorrow and make jar candles today hoping tomorrow will be less humid.
I made the soap, but it was Cranberry. I will probably wait on the peppermint until it is less humid. Essential oils tend to be temperamental when it's humid. Heck, soapmaking is temperamental when it's humid. I also made a batch of tarts, several batches of simmering potpourri, and some room sprays to fill out an order. Just about everything on the order was something I was low on or out of completely. That's okay, I made extra so I won't get caught short again.
I got all of the laundry done for a change - done, folded, and put away. Not much else got done. I did do my daily stocking. We are still behind and need to get crackin'.
Madison was here today. She seemed a little out of sorts and wanted me to hold her a lot. My heart melts when she staggers over to me and puts up her little arms.
Word of the day:
Monday of the Thirteenth week in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : St. Irenaeus, Bishop and Martyr (+ 202) - Memorial
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 8:18-22.
When Jesus saw a crowd around him, he gave orders to cross to the other side. A scribe approached and said to him, "Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go." Jesus answered him, "Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to rest his head." Another of (his) disciples said to him, "Lord, let me go first and bury my father." But Jesus answered him, "Follow me, and let the dead bury their dead."
