Lent has begun officially for all of Christendom, more or less. Some observe it and some do not. It depends on your particular denominational tradition really, and each individual. Of all the fasts and feasts in the Eastern Orthodox church, Lent and Easter (Pascha) are the most difficult and joyous.
Because of my health issues I do not go all out on the fasting, yet try to do as much as I possibly can. The Husband, of course, does more.
And, because of Lent, I have been trying to decide what I should do with this blog. Lent affects us in each area of our daily life, or should. This blog is a very important part of my life and daily life at that, even if I don’t post every single day.
So, what should I do? I am not going to stop blogging for all of Lent because interesting things happen and I would like to share, talk about them, report them, etc., but I would also like to share something important about my faith.
KMGN: Love this post. It has actually gotten me to thinking about much concerning the photos I take and usually post. Hope this helps, or, at the very least, amuses you.

Have you ever had one of those days that was simply just ordinary and then something specific happened that just lifted all weight off of your shoulders and let you soar with the eagles? Well, I’ve had one of those today.
Writing & Research: The past few days, thankfully, have found me feeling better and doing research. One of the bad guys in the newest novel has bad guys/organization based upon The Third Reich. Yes, it isn’t “new” – hopefully my take on the theme will work.
The real world accomplishments: Actually managed to get some housework done. There is a pile of housework left to do. Pleased with the success accomplished today.
Home: Now The Husband plays D&D Daggerddale and I update blogs and just unwind. Thinking of pouring myself a glass of wine.
I have to admit, Daniel Radcliffe really looks good here. I just may have to see this movie for him alone!
Today has definitely been a Monday as in I actually tried to pick up working and reading and being as productive as possible. Today was a successful Monday, which is what I needed to get working again.
Most of the writing today was research notes while watching a couple of documentaries on Netflix for the novel and story now in the works. Reading up on these documentaries is a little difficult because several of the books I need are going to be gotten through inter-library loan. The only problem is that the librarian I spoke with today was not super-interested, or even mildly interested in helping me get a couple of books. Tomorrow is another day and hopefully when I call back to the main branch of the public library I will be speaking to someone else, someone who will be interested in helping me get some reading material.
Along with the documentaries, I have also begun playing Red Dead Redemption. Loving it!
With the serious reading there is also some fluff. I am probably going to start the second Sabina Kane novel, or 12 Years a Slave tonight. It is silly, I know, but I am SO leaning toward the Sabina Kane novel. There is just something about that universe that makes me smile and draws me in deeper. Decisions, darn it.
As you may have noticed, I am feeling better! Even if I am not “well” from the Alien Death Plague I am better. This is something yours truly can live with.
Now, back to reading some serious stuff before calling it a day.
