It's gorgeous outside today. It's also almost 80 degrees. I cannot wait to get home and sit on my patio with a glass of wine. A grilled burger sounds good also, but I'll have to wait until tomorrow for that. BARG.
It's only been three days since Lent started, so I can't complain. Two of those have been without meat though...so maybe I can complain a little?? I'm still having a tough time deciding what to give up. I have a couple of things I'm going to work on, like complaining (whoops) and eating more whole foods, but I just can't seem to nail down something to give up.
The new Archbishop sat at the table I was at to eat lunch today at work. As everyone was talking about having been on the Atkins diet at one time or another I spoke up and said as an Italian I just couldn't give up pasta. It goes against my very being. I looked at the new Archbishop and he kind of looked at me curious. I immediately made the connection that giving up pasta for Lent, and not the Atkins diet might be exactly what I have been looking for. I spoke up and stated that giving up pasta for Lent would indeed be one of the biggest sacrifices I had ever made during Lent (I'm sure that impressed him).
So MAYBE that's what I'll do. No pasta. For forty days. Oh no, if I say it on here I will have to do it. What will I eat on Friday's when I can't eat meat, so I usually eat pasta? Do Asian noodles count as pasta? I don't think they should...
Hopefully I can think of something else that would be equally as impressive to give up. Help me Rhonda.
