I'm back to my normal soap schedule. I made a batch of blueberry cobbler last night. I love how it turned out, but next time I won't put titanium dioxide in the lye water. I think the blues would have been truer if I had left it out. 

Today is a Madison and Meghan day. Madison loves her new sweater and insists on wearing it all day over her pjs.

I've been weeding through all my yarn left from when I had my knitting machine shop.  I'm pulling the nicest ones to make sweaters for the grandkids and the rest will be disposed of somehow.  I've been decluttering in the basement and made myself get rid of an entire box of the books I wrote.  I saved a copy of each for my own use.  Why do we get attached to our clutter?  I think we give "things" power over us.  Things hold memories.  I am making myself take pictures so I can keep the memories, but not the clutter.

Our Share the Love Celebration sale at Esty is going very well. Here is a small sampling in a treaury I made.

Word of the day:
Tuesday of the Second week in Ordinary Time
Saint(s) of the day : St. Anthony the Abbot, Patriarch of Monks (251-356)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 2:23-28.

As Jesus was passing through a field of grain on the sabbath, his disciples began to make a path while picking the heads of grain. At this the Pharisees said to him,
At this the Pharisees said to him, "Look, why are they doing what is unlawful on the sabbath?"
He said to them, "Have you never read what David did when he was in need and he and his companions were hungry?
How he went into the house of God when Abiathar was high priest and ate the bread of offering that only the priests could lawfully eat, and shared it with his companions?"
Then he said to them, "The sabbath was made for man, not man for the sabbath.
That is why the Son of Man is lord even of the sabbath."
