We got some exciting news yesterday and in a sense, the fact that it was on Labor Day is kind of ironic.  LOL!  Nina and Jamie are expecting a baby at the end of April.  They've waited a long time for this.  I am very excited for them AND I am not worrying.  (Nina, are you reading this?)  LOL!

Now that school has started I will have a schedule adjustment.  There is RCIA tonight so I will be going out for my run in a few minutes.  I had mass with the kids this morning and yesterday was Labor Day so I will have the girls on Wednesday and Thursday.  We've been having problems with the sound system so after I got dinner on for Harold and Howard, I went up to meet with the technician.  I think hope we have the problem solved.  Before going up town, I managed to get a stocking made.  I have a batch of five knitted and ready to sew up so I can ship them by Thursday.

After I got home from church for the 2nd time today, I made a batch of Cider Mill soap.  This time I put pip berries on the cupcakes.  I love the way they look so I put some on the batch I made yesterday too.  Yesterday's batch was Honey, Oats, and Milk because I managed to drop the last batch all over the basement floor.  Arggghhhhh!  Below are pics of today's batch of soap.

I have two more batches to make this week - pumpkin spice and apple jack, but first I have to measure some more oils.  The fall soaps need to be done this week so there is time for them to cure before our fall shows.

Word of the day:
Tuesday of the Twenty-third week in Ordinary Time
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 6:12-19.

Jesus departed to the mountain to pray, and he spent the night in prayer to God.
When day came, he called his disciples to himself, and from them he chose Twelve, whom he also named apostles:
Simon, whom he named Peter, and his brother Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew,
Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, Simon who was called a Zealot,
and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.
And he came down with them and stood on a stretch of level ground. A great crowd of his disciples and a large number of the people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the coastal region of Tyre and Sidon
came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases; and even those who were tormented by unclean spirits were cured.
Everyone in the crowd sought to touch him because power came forth from him and healed them all.

And those soaps look great, as always. :)
