{Friday Foto Friends} Mardi Gras to Ash Wednesday

I actually remembered to take some pictures this week!
CH & I at the Mardi Gras celebration hosted by the Knights of Columbus at Church last Friday. We left just as things started hopping...literally...just after the Second Line finished. 
 I went to Mass Saturday morning in this beautiful nearby church.
 This is looking towards the back of the church, into the choir loft.
Just above the altar, the dome has a dove right in the middle of it. I couldn't get it to show up with the light. I had to look up several times during Mass and just take it in.
Sunday morning breakfast was french toast with a secret ingredient. It doesn't matter what kind of creamer you splash in, it gives the toast an extra "umph"!
Sunday afternoon, CH & I brought up this bookcase that my daddy made, along with some dressers for YS. There's still a lot to be done at the house; luckily we aren't really on a time schedule!
I played at Ash Wednesday Mass and received the best ash cross I ever remember having! Thanks, Father Bill!!!
I got my camera out the other day and took a few pictures of a cardinal that was singing loudly in the back yard. It's rare when I can actually see them; I mostly hear them. I just didn't have the time to get the picture off my camera. 
Have a fantastic Friday and a wonderful weekend!
I'm linking up with Deb at Breathing in Grace today!

  1. The church is beautiful with the stained glass windows and dome. The architecture and attention to detail of some churches is truly outstanding. My father was ordained as a deacon at the Cathedral of St. Paul. It, too, was such a magnificent place with the ornate stained glass windows and meticulous focus on beautiful woodwork and marble work. Cardinals have such a lovely song, don't they?

  3. Great photos! Funny, I took a photo of my bookcase this week too. I was proud of the fact that I can actually see the books now because I move quite a lot of them down to the "give away shelf." Actually a penance for me to do that so I guess I was inspired by Lent!!

  4. Enjoyed the pictures of the beautiful church, just awesome! And what a great idea to add flavored creamers to French toast, wonder how that would work with pancakes?! Might have to give that a try.
