NUNS strike again! 1st March is Ash Wednesday!

Lent is near: Laurie just reminded me (Miss New Orleans in my links).

Here is the post elsewhere in my blog last year--we were joined by Paula too, in Italy, and I think Judy in Silsbee...

Shall we do it again, NUNS?
From 1st March until 15th April, the day before Easter we DON'T SHOP for stuff.

NUNS - wanna join our Lenten non-shopping spree?

Laurie and maybe Carol (or Carol's friend at least), and myself are now going in for No Unnecessary Needless Shopping and will be known during Lent as NUNS for short (copyright Laurie).

We had a discussion in Comments under my 'What are you giving up for Lent' post-- and I for one will walk around the lake next door (maybe not throw myself in, as it is -10 C today) or to the harbour or a museum and avoid all malls.

Only less than 40 non-shopping days left of Lent!

"Lent is a forty-day period before Easter. It begins on Ash Wednesday. We skip Sundays when we count the forty days, because Sundays commemorate the Resurrection. Lent begins on 9 February 2005 and ends on 26 March 2005."

Well, March 1st is my birthday too... How am I to reconcile this with the first day of Lent. I think you'll have to count me out unless you can get the Pope to reschedule.

Excuses, excuses...

Fine-- don't be a MONK then, whatever that stands for!
Happy Birthday soon :)
My God, you are gonna be OLD by the time we all meet again...
