the attending of church prior to lent to receive absolution "to be shriven or shrove"
our pancake party
a stack of american pancakes, raspberry coulis, apple sauce, syrup, nutella, butter, blueberries, banana, great pot of tea in our vintage 50s teacups and saucers
tomorrow is ash wednesday
from the practice of covering your head in a sackcloth and then ash to express sorrow...a time of penance for contemplating the sufferings and temptations of jesus as he fasted for 40 days in the wilderness
we have all decided to give up swearing for lent
what are you giving up?
