Today's brew: Community Coffee with Chicory. Enjoyed with a piece of King Cake. It's Mardi Gras!
If we still lived in our former city of Lafayette, LA, our son would be out of school this week for the Mardi Gras celebration. Used to be a two or three day holiday but by the time we moved away, it had grown to a full week of a school holiday. No time off here. Today at his school they begin this year's Sanford tests.
Max the dog decided to celebrate the day by somehow getting out of the fenced in backyard this morning and touring the neighborhood. Fortunately husband had not yet left for the office and he got into his car to look for Max. Found him not too far away and brought him home. I guess it was Max's way of celebrating the holiday.
I'm wearing my official Mardi Gras earrings. They are made of old glass beads from back in the day when the necklaces thrown in the parades were made of glass, not plastic like they are today. They are drop style and they are green.
