Mardis gras

It’s Mardis gras today and in Sweden that means that you eat a lent bun, a bun filled with almond paste and topped with whipped cream. My mum makes the best lent buns and I invited myself over for dinner tonight so I could have one. Mardis gras means that Easter is not too far away and even though it is March, I don’t feel it. All of February was gray, gray, gray and March hasn’t been much better. I feel apathetic and tired. Nothing is fun and nothing gets done. It will be better, I know, but that doesn’t really help now.

I’m doing what  I can though, I have my spring colored knitting and I’ve put it in a spring colored project bag and every time I knit a stitch it gets a little better. The medicin: knit more!
