Strangest of all, a friend and I were driving the other day when, (literally) out of the blue, a bird dropped dead right out of the sky, falling right in front of our car. I've never seen such a thing. I know there are parts of the world that are colder, and I hope they have way better socks and gloves than I do. For mid-Michigan, this is cold weather.
Today is Mardi Gras, so yesterday the Littles and I decorated the King Cake that I ordered, as I do every year, from New Orleans, with the traditional green, gold and purple sugar. An hour later we were all in sugar shock. Love it. :) And since I live in Michigan, where paczkis are the order of the day on Fat Tuesday, I managed to eat one (or two) of those at my early morning meeting at work. It's good to know that I am all ready to celebrate Fat Tuesday today -- I've got the fat already packed on, lol. Hey, it's a matter of self defense when the weather is this cold! I need that insulation to keep me warm. :) I hope you are all feeling as fat and happy this Mardi Gras as I am!
