Mar 06

It was Mardi Gras here in New Orleans yesterday, and I had forgotten just how nuts it is. I don’t know why, I’ve been through about 15 of them and you think I would know by now. But it still takes me by surprise.

We wandered around the French Quarter and took photos of the crazy costumes and watched some of the walking parades and had a few drinks and generally just, well, enjoyed ourselves. It was cold but sunny, much more preferable to it being mild and rainy.

Now that it is over, and the parades are done and dusted – at least until the St Patrick’s Day parade next week! – it’s time to get back to the grind. Mardi Gras was so late this year that it has thrown everything out of whack. My writing courses are usually about to start, this year I probably won’t be able to get them going until April.

And just to add to the mix, I’m taking my daughter home for 10 days this month. Right before they start. So something else to throw into the mix to deal with.

Still, not complaining. May you live in interesting times, right? Anyway, I feel the fog of yesterday lifting. Time to do some work. Til next time…
