Fat Tuesday, The First Chapter of Grave Refrain, and Ashes to Go

Celebrate Fat Tuesday and check out the first chapter of Grave Refrain at D. Renee Bagby Presents First Chapters.

Because I support the giving up and taking up aspect of Lent, here's the skinny.

Giving up:  Wine and whining, coffee and carping, red meat and chocolate.  Yes, you may ask, why bother living?  But hey, it's only forty days, right?  Right?

Taking up:  St. Aidan's Food Pantry and running (so I'm not the only one at my book group who isn't training for a marathon...)

If you're so inclined, The Food Pantry will be hanging out in the Diamond's Height Parking Lot tomorrow.  You can get Ashes to Go.  No, I'm not kidding.  It's brilliant.  Stop by and say hello.  Pick up a gallon of milk and a smudge.  If you've already read Grave Refrain, you know I have a soft spot for ashes.


  1. HI Sarah. I could make it 40 days without everything you list except coffee. I get the shivers just thinking about it.

    Heading over to D. Renee Bagby to read your first chapter.

    1. Thanks Cherie! The coffee is killing me as well. Don't know how I'm going to make it. Does decaf count???

  2. A day without chocolate? I'll just stay in bed, thank you.

  3. There are too many hills in San Francisco to train for a marathon! But the humidity is nice and low. That's a lot to give up for Lent.
