Ahhhhhh,  it has been so long.  This summer has just been jam packed with stuff to do.  I am so far behind with so many things - but that seems to be the status quo for me.  So let's see if I can update.
Last week:

 Made pepperberry wreath soap.  (This feels really good in the shower on a hot day!

Made a ton of tarts.  Some lamp grubbies, bundt cake tarts, and grubby tarts scented with Harvest Home.

Finished two rugs:  One for Claire

And one for Nina

Made a bunch of Christmas stocking for an order
Loons game on Friday night (they lost)
Family reunion on Saturday
Family party on Sunday
Started a new rug for Ben
And various assorted other stuff.
Word of the Day:

Monday of the Fifteenth week in Ordinary Time

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 10:34-42.11:1.
Do not think that I have come to bring peace upon the earth. I have come to bring not peace but the sword.
For I have come to set a man 'against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law;
and one's enemies will be those of his household.'
Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me;
and whoever does not take up his cross and follow after me is not worthy of me.
Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.
Whoever receives you receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me.
Whoever receives a prophet because he is a prophet will receive a prophet's reward, and whoever receives a righteous man because he is righteous will receive a righteous man's reward.
And whoever gives only a cup of cold water to one of these little ones to drink because he is a disciple--amen, I say to you, he will surely not lose his reward."
When Jesus finished giving these commands to his twelve disciples, he went away from that place to teach and to preach in their towns.
