Fun! fun! Fun! Food and Flowers!
The snow is finally melting and it is raining today! Are you looking forward to spring? I am! Soon the crocuses will be out! Where ever you live, try to get out of the house and find flowers and good food. They are good for your soul!
Look at some wonderful pics of upcoming events. The Philadelphia Flower Show is a great way to see the latest in outdoor design and see wonderful displays of flowers and horticulture. There is a great section for shopping as well!

Mardi Gras - Fat Tuesday
Tomorrow, Ash Wednesday, brings Lent, preparation for Easter.
We enjoyed donuts for the last time for a while.
Seek the Lord while he may be found.
Almighty and everlasting God, you hate nothing you have made and forgive the sins of all who are penitent: Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of you, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
See my daughter's blog for suggestions of things to do with your kids during Lent.
