Mardi Gras 2007

This photo was taken in 2005, pre-Katrina, on Bourbon Street. It's one of the old buildings' eves with all the beads hanging. I thought it was so pretty (even with the barbed wire), I couldn't resist capturing it on film.

I'm not doing my usual red beans and rice tonight. I've had the painter here all day and have been unable to get out. I think I'll make some other New Orleans' specialty that doesn't take all day to cook--seeing that it's already almost 4 in the afternoon, I guess so. You can see how light I'm going. The darker is the old paint. Too light? I always go through this. Do I like it? Don't I? Coulda, woulda, shoulda.

Well, tonight we feast for tomorrow we shall fast. I'll update this later when I decide what we're having.

Most of my rooms are that light color. Daniel doesn't really like color on walls, I do have a light robin's egg blue in my bedroom and purple in the art room,,
I think its going to turn out really nice Ms. Rosie!!

My kitchen and living room walls are that colour and I love it because it just brightens up the rooms. Mardi Gras is not really celebrated here in Canada but we do enjoy hearing about the activities on the news:-) xox
