Happy: Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday), Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Day

Where are we today ?

        Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday), Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Day, depends where you are, and what you believe but today is the day. You can check out this link here if you wish. When ever it falls (and it is a different day every year) it is always 47 days before Easter. So there is interesting trivia for you to know (if you wish to know that).
         NO big parades for us and they are everywhere today, large crowds wild parties, in the New Orleans area, but thanks anyway. We did a small family Mardi Gras Parade in Abita Springs Feb 2nd and that was fun, if you missed it can read about it by clicking here.
we got lotsa beads
        Any who, today is warm again and overcast and not so much rain like yesterday. Drizzly here and there but can deal with it. So got lotsa walkabouts the resort, really putting the miles on going round in circles, but much better than not. Gonna wear out my new shoes!
down by the pond and lake,
lotsa stuff to do in the summer
pools and splash pads
Mini golf, too wet today
Ranger Smith hangs out here with Yogi
          Between walkabouts, computing and  reading our books it ended up being an awesome day. About 70f even with the overcast skies. Every time I got my chair out to read it would start to drizzle a bit. Hmm fixed that, opened our awning. So can relax outside read for a bit, fresh air, walkabouts and enjoy a great day. Yes we do have lotsa books to read 7 or 8 to exchange and about 35 books in reserve so we are good.
        With the unpredictable weather today Suzie requested a meatloaf for supper today. So fired up the oven whipped up a tasty meatloaf, mashed taters and  some cauliflower with cheese and we had a wonderful supper tonight. Left over meatloaf for sandwiches is awesome too!
        There thats it for us today. The forecast says we gonna have a couple sunny days. Now that would be just wonderful, had more than out share of rain, the local weather channel says we had 4-6 inches of rain since Sunday, now thats a lot. Flood warnings and stuff close to the rivers, but we are just fine here.
        Thanks for dropping by and checking us out, if you would like to make a comment that would be awesome! If you don't want to comment I will hunt you down. (not sure how I would find you thou, give me  a hint ok?) 
        Either way have a great day.

  3. Mardi Gras celebrations anyplace else but in New Orleans is probably a lot of fun. In the big city it's an event we have no interest in being anyplace close.

    1. We have exactly the same opinion too. Not in the big city.

  6. Hope the dryer weather settles in for you, 6" of rain in two days I think is enough for a while, sure doesn't seem to slow the Mardi Gras festivities down. With the book exchanges you do very well without the Kindles and tablets, plus the fun of going to the exchanges. I'll take one of those meatloaf sandwiches anytime! Have a Great Wednesday!

    1. No need for the kindles our tablets, love the feel of a paper back and like you said the fun of going to book exchanges. We search them down all over the country and meet some very nice people.
