Today is soapmaking day. I made a batch of Country Roads. I also did a video which taking forever to upload so I will post it tomorrow. Here is what the soap looks like in the mold.
I'm hoping that it will look awesome tomorrow.  I just checked it and it is heating up.  There's a crack in the top.  Not my favorite thing, but it happens.


I've also been in contact with Jen Crawford who is in charge of the Girls On the Run program.  We make little soaps to put in the gift bags for the girls.  Jen is expecting at least 700 to participate this year!  So . . . . . I have started making the soaps.  We are doing Oatmeal Milk and Honey hearts.  Anna will be figuring out the packaging and Melisa will help package it.  We think this is a wonderful program!!



Word of the day:
Monday of the Fourth week in Ordinary Time
Saint(s) of the day : St. Bathildes, Queen (c. 634-680)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 5:1-20.


They came to the other side of the sea, to the territory of the Gerasenes.
When he got out of the boat, at once a man from the tombs who had an unclean spirit met him.
The man had been dwelling among the tombs, and no one could restrain him any longer, even with a chain.
In fact, he had frequently been bound with shackles and chains, but the chains had been pulled apart by him and the shackles smashed, and no one was strong enough to subdue him.
Night and day among the tombs and on the hillsides he was always crying out and bruising himself with stones.
Catching sight of Jesus from a distance, he ran up and prostrated himself before him,
crying out in a loud voice, "What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I adjure you by God, do not torment me!"
(He had been saying to him, "Unclean spirit, come out of the man!")
He asked him, "What is your name?" He replied, "Legion is my name. There are many of us."
And he pleaded earnestly with him not to drive them away from that territory.
Now a large herd of swine was feeding there on the hillside.
And they pleaded with him, "Send us into the swine. Let us enter them."
And he let them, and the unclean spirits came out and entered the swine. The herd of about two thousand rushed down a steep bank into the sea, where they were drowned.
The swineherds ran away and reported the incident in the town and throughout the countryside. And people came out to see what had happened.
As they approached Jesus, they caught sight of the man who had been possessed by Legion, sitting there clothed and in his right mind. And they were seized with fear.
Those who witnessed the incident explained to them what had happened to the possessed man and to the swine.
Then they began to beg him to leave their district.
As he was getting into the boat, the man who had been possessed pleaded to remain with him.
But he would not permit him but told him instead, "Go home to your family and announce to them all that the Lord in his pity has done for you."
Then the man went off and began to proclaim in the Decapolis what Jesus had done for him; and all were amazed.
