Started with my two little sweeties, Madison and Meghan. I am not allowed to get Meghan's bottle ready. That is Madison's self-appointed task. She gets very huffy if I do it.
After they went home I checked my email and found a large order of soaps, bath fizzies, and 2 small electric pip grubbies from Carol M. I hand-pour those to order, but I have only one mold so I got on that right away. The pip grubby mold holds about a pound of wax so each one needs about 6 hours in the mold before I can take it out. Both are poured now. Tomorrow I will insert the silicone bulb and cord. I also ran short of the peach bath fizzies so I made a batch of those. I had an order for a Christmas stocking so that is made and ready to ship out tomorrow. I'll drop Carol's order off when I go to the post office. I also made a dozen autumn nightlights. It was a productive day. :)
Word of the day:
Monday of the Twenty-first week in Ordinary Time
Feast of the Church : The Queenship of Mary - Memorial
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 23:13-22.
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites. You lock the kingdom of heaven before human beings. You do not enter yourselves, nor do you allow entrance to those trying to enter.
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites. You traverse sea and land to make one convert, and when that happens you make him a child of Gehenna twice as much as yourselves.
Woe to you, blind guides, who say, 'If one swears by the temple, it means nothing, but if one swears by the gold of the temple, one is obligated.'
Blind fools, which is greater, the gold, or the temple that made the gold sacred?
And you say, 'If one swears by the altar, it means nothing, but if one swears by the gift on the altar, one is obligated.'
You blind ones, which is greater, the gift, or the altar that makes the gift sacred?
One who swears by the altar swears by it and all that is upon it;
one who swears by the temple swears by it and by him who dwells in it;
one who swears by heaven swears by the throne of God and by him who is seated on it.
