The Shepherd Maple Syrup Festival is coming up at the  end of this week. Nicola and I will be in the 5K race so I will have  to get up really early tomorrow and Wednesday because I will have the  little girls at 8:00 The house is a wreck, I have a ton of stuff to  do, but the pressure of Holy Week is off.; Phew!!!; I went up to  Shepherd to make a donation for one of the students and stopped in to  visit with the gal who replaced me at the school. She was in dire need  of aroma therapy. I remember well those days in the media center.We  visited for a while and I saw a couple of other teachers that I've  really missed since I left.

Ugh,  I had no business making soap tonight I have been chomping at the bit  to try a new fragrance oil which we will be calling "Prairie Rose."  I'm not a huge fan of rose scents but I like this one. The supplier  reports slight acceleration, but my soap accelerated to thick mashed  potato stage within minutes of adding the oil. I'm glad I wasn't using  my slab mold because these would have been ugly bars. I glopped it into  the molds and piped a ridge, sprinkled with glitter and I'm hoping for  the best. At worst, I can rebatch into soap balls that should be pretty  fragrant. I also made three gloppy cupcakes. Hopefully I can trim  them up when the soap hardens and they'll look nice. Thank God for  glitter.


Word of the day
Monday in the Octave of Easter
Saint(s) of the day : St Mark, Evangelist
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 28:8-15.

Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went away quickly from the tomb, fearful yet overjoyed, and ran to announce the news to his disciples.
And behold, Jesus met them on their way and greeted them. They approached, embraced his feet, and did him homage.
Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid. Go tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me."
While they were going, some of the guard went into the city and told the chief priests all that had happened.
They assembled with the elders and took counsel; then they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers,
telling them, "You are to say, 'His disciples came by night and stole him while we were asleep.'
And if this gets to the ears of the governor, we will satisfy (him) and keep you out of trouble."
The soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story has circulated among the Jews to the present (day).
