Friday . . .

Yesterday was a bus trip to Boca Raton FL to visit Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church.  The church has been designated by our Bishop as a Mercy Church.  It's the Year of Mercy for our church so this little church on Pine Island out in the Bay of Mexico takes on a special place for us.

After confession and Mass, one of the parishoners gave a short presentation on the little Church because it's filled with articles from 16th century Spain.  An amazing and holy place.

After lunch at the 3rd Street Pub, we jumped back on the bus and headed home feeling holier that thou.  Yikes! Now I'm really getting carried away! :)

Sunday . . .

Chris came yesterday to help me with some stuff around the house.
What seemed like a mountain of stuff to me seemed so easy for him.
He left early this morning and just called to let me know he's home.
Thanks sweet son!

Thursday . . .

Today is Dahli's groomer day so
while she was there I ran to the bank,
stopped at Church to pay for the bus trip next Thursday,
and a quick stop at Beall's Outlet to check out their Spring Specials.
Came home with a new pair of capri's and a pair of pajamas. 

Yesterday
was our Ladies Mardi Gras Luncheon.
It was a blast. Loved every minute. 
So blessed to have all these talented ladies who 
volunteer and work their little heads off. Thanks ladies.

Tuesday . . .


A long time ago, I asked my mother-in-law 
"Why is today called "Fat Tuesday" or "Mardi Gras" "?

According to my mother-in-law, years ago, if you were Catholic, the rule of 'no more meat during Lent' would start.  Therefore, housewives who cooked with lard, which comes from meat, could not use lard for the next 40 days.

So that their lard did not go to waste, they made a batter for donuts and fried their donuts in what lard was left.  God forbid you ever wasted anything!

So if my m-i-l was alive today, she would make her punchkies/donuts and we would all go visit and stuff ourselves with her donuts.
