"Shrove Tuesday" 030/365 * 24 02 2009

Today it is Shrove Tuesday...pancake day.

 

It is the day before Lent...so, like every year since I was 4 (with the exception of last year due to the mitigating circumstances of pregnancy and hyperemesis) I am giving up chocolate and confectionery for 40 days...

 

I am not religious, though I was brought up Catholic, and nothing was forced on us. But I have always just done Lent. I think it is the one time a year that I have willpower to test myself!

 

So this is me and a chocolate egg...in a dirty, peeling frame of whitewash and blue paint that reminds me of childhoods spend in Greece.

 

For today's FGR..."Sinimustvalge" (Elagu Eesti!)

The Rogue Players..."Keep it dirty"

and February's Alphabet Fun...X is for xerography...
