Today was one of those days where the wheels spin but you really don't get anywhere. Oh, I got things done, but I felt like I was swimming upstream. I finished the rug that Madison was "helping" me with.

I packaged some orders. Made some grubby tarts for another order.

Did some photos for the shop, listed some items.  Oh, and I ordered some 100% soy wax.  I haven't worked with it before because I've seen soy candles and have never liked the look of them.  But everyone seems to want them sooo, I ordered 10 pounds to see what all the fuss was about.  I made a batch of  Hazelnut for one of my orders.  The customer said she would be willing to test the soy to see how she likes it.  We raise soybeans so I thought I should at least give it a try.  We shall see.  Pictures tomorrow.

 Word of the day:
Wednesday of the Fourth week of Lent
Saint(s) of the day : St Euda, St Benedetta Cambiagio Frassinello (1791-1858)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 5:17-30.

Jesus answered the Jews: «My Father is at work until now, so I am at work.»
For this reason the Jews tried all the more to kill him, because he not only broke the sabbath but he also called God his own father, making himself equal to God.
Jesus answered and said to them, "Amen, amen, I say to you, a son cannot do anything on his own, but only what he sees his father doing; for what he does, his son will do also.
For the Father loves his Son and shows him everything that he himself does, and he will show him greater works than these, so that you may be amazed.
For just as the Father raises the dead and gives life, so also does the Son give life to whomever he wishes.
Nor does the Father judge anyone, but he has given all judgment to his Son,
so that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him.
Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes in the one who sent me has eternal life and will not come to condemnation, but has passed from death to life.
Amen, amen, I say to you, the hour is coming and is now here when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live.
For just as the Father has life in himself, so also he gave to his Son the possession of life in himself.
And he gave him power to exercise judgment, because he is the Son of Man.
Do not be amazed at this, because the hour is coming in which all who are in the tombs will hear his voice
and will come out, those who have done good deeds to the resurrection of life, but those who have done wicked deeds to the resurrection of condemnation.
I cannot do anything on my own; I judge as I hear, and my judgment is just, because I do not seek my own will but the will of the one who sent me.
