Shrove Tuesday

Mardi Gras. Shrove Tuesday. Fat Tuesday. Carnival.
Today we feast. Tomorrow, we repent.
It doesn’t matter that it was in the low 30’s. We grilled steaks-


We ate King Cake – shipped overnight to us from Haydel’s Bakery, straight from NOLA.

King Cake

I drank. Gin and tonic if you care. There is no pictorial evidence.
I repented early of that choice.

I am plugging away at the Vernal Equinox shawl still.


Just looking at that picture, at the soft, thick lace, the delicate diamonds, and the rich color, makes me happy.

I can has knitting time now?
