It looks like a fun and fabulous time, with plenty of memories to carry you through. I looked at your photos in envy--I'm sitting here, in the house, wearing a shirt and two sweaters, looking out the window where we're having a snow shower!

Gillena Cox said...

Warm wishes Diane, and thanks for dropping in

Ashes and abstinence aren't all that appealing. No wonder there's a carnival!

Looking outside the window, in Toronto, and seeing the ground, covered, in snow, I want to join you, Gillena, in the warmth and excitement that Carnival brings to you. Known, this one day's memory will last a lifetime, shining bright, on a cold snowy winter day. Thanks, for the ray of light, on this wintery day.

I read this yesterday but must have left without leaving a comment. I thought I had. Anyway, as always, I enjoyed reading these. Love the pictures. Now that carnival is over, it's time to reflect on life and spirit. Have a good rest of the week Gillena.
