Fat Tuesday

Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, refers to the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before Lent begins on Wednesday.  New Orleans will be hopping tonight!  I have no desire whatsoever to be in that huge crowd.Mardi Gras beads

Tonight will find the two of us at our FL parish enjoying the annual Shrove Tuesday (another name for today) pancake supper with a relatively small crowd of folks.  This is a fund raiser for the youth of the church, and we definitely like to support the youth.  I don’t mind a night of not cooking.

I finished the first book in the Outlander series Sunday, and thoroughly enjoyed it.  I read a  quick free mystery on the Kindle last night, and intend to begin book #2 of the series today.  So many books, so little time…but I’m trying!

When  you are dissatisfied and
Would  like to go back to your
Youth,  think of Algebra.

Make a little time for yourself, pick up a book and read.  You can travel the world in the comfort of your own home. 

What are you reading right now?

Have yourself a ginger peachy day!  I sure will.

Oh, I would not go back to my youth again for love nor money! I have my Mardi Gras beads in my purse, we're having pancakes at church tonight, too - then on to the BSP meeting. We will miss you! Hugs...

I love the Algebra thought. Cringe. I hated both classes of that, but it sure helped with statistic rolled around.

I'm reading Without Fail, one of the Jack Reacher novels by Lee Child. Almost done and there is a box of the rest of them heading my way. They better get here soon as I'm on the last one.

Have a fantastic day honey. Big hugs. ☺

Algebra is a good reminder for me. I do not like math and never did well in that subject.

We had enchiladas today. So our fat meal has already been eaten.

I never seem to have time to read. I am either blogging, cleaning house, taking pictures or sleeping. I miss reading too!

We love the youth at our church too. We have some really great kids. I hope you guys have fun!

Hugs! :-)

We are skipping the pancakes for McDonald's because I am giving up fries and my usual chocolate. I'm on book 6 of the Outlander series, and I had to stay up late to get through a very intense part! There was no way I could go to sleep until I had some resolution to the problem. (My lips are sealed!)

Yum, pancakes!

I'm still reading the first book. I love it!
