Fat Tuesday, Baby!

I didn’t even know there was a Fat Tuesday until I met my husband 15 years ago.  And, I barely knew what the Lenten season was about.  Actually, I still don’t know much about the Lenten season other than Catholic’s walk around with Ash on their face on Ash Wednesday, and the 40 days signifies the 40 days that Jesus was out in the desert.  Oh, and that we should give something up to signify the sacrifice Jesus gave for us.  See – I don’t know much about Lent :-)

Seriously, though, I have never celebrated Lent, but I’m starting this year.  As in now.  I feel like I am being called, gently, to dive deeper in my faith, to draw closer to Him, and this is one way I can honor that. I actually was going to give up the computer entirely, but that doesn’t work well when you are taking online classes, and your income potential (or unrealized potential) is from the computer, so yeah.  But, I can pick the one think that sucks up most of my time, needlessly.  Mark Zuckerberg will understand, I’m sure.  As will all my game “friends”.

If you want to keep up with me, come here, or drop me an email.

And, for tomorrow’s post… a health update.

I work outside the home and am mom to two girls, a husband, five dogs, three cats, and seven chickens. When not picking up, cleaning up, or chasing after any one of the above mentioned beings, I can be found outside working on the garden, inside creating new canning recipes, or sewing on a new project.
