It's a chilly one this morning. Madison is here. We have a bit of a routing change because she can no long nap in her swing. She's figured out how to get out of it so it's time for something new. She is also taking a couple of steps at a time each day. It won't be long now until she's walking. Oh, and I need to think about a quilt for the new baby and a "big girl bed" quilt for Madison.

Today is bill day, laundry day, and soap day. I am just about finished sewing down the binding on one of the prayer quilts I took home.

I got the soap made. The last time I tried to make pumpkin spice soap, it seized up on me. Today's batch behaved itself.

Today was the last day of school at Shepherd.  It is a tradition for all of the farm kids to drive their tractors to school.  I can't believe that 9 years ago Sam drove his to school.

Word of the day:
Monday of the Tenth week in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : St. Robert of Newminster (12th century)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 5:1-12.


When he saw the crowds, he went up the mountain, and after he had sat down, his disciples came to him. He began to teach them, saying: Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land. Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you (falsely) because of me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven. Thus they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
