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.

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.
