Life is interconnected and so are the topics on this blog. It might be cooking and gardening one day, yoga the next, knitting and sewing, or hiking and then bird watching followed by recycling or composting. They are the parts that bring humble joy to my life of voluntary simplicity in Montana.
Yesterday was Mardi Gras. While I don't go all out in my celebration I
usually do something to mark the occasion of festivity. I always found
the celebration a very interesting one, and you know me, I love an
occasion for collective festivity! I had to work until 9pm, but as
luck would have it my friends' band, Ted Ness and the Rusty Nails, were
set to play some bluegrass after 10 o'clock. So, even though we knew
we'd stay up too late on a weeknight, we went out and boogied anyways. The
music was great. There were beads and masks and friends, though it was a pretty
mellow crowd really. But, fun, very fun. Another event to mark the passing of the days and months. I cannot believe its mid-February already!
