Ash Wednesday

Yesterday was Mardi Gras, and the kids all made "carnival" masks, we had pancakes and I made horribly sweet cupcakes and filled them with whatever I could find, raisins, butterscotch chips, liqueur de cassis, etc... they were sinful... and it would have been really difficult to eat more than one of them...

I think we are ready for Lent now. Am going to hang up my homemade stations of the cross, and I am hoping to get to an Ash Wednesday service today. Now I have to get off the computer. I'm going to try spending my time on more useful things, like ironing my husband's shirts. (There is a mountain of them in Gabriel's room right now...)
