I typically have a project or lental reading.
Is this where you cast beans about and try to read a message in how they land? Lent does seem to lend itself to such practices, such as when one of the children -- or one of the adults -- throws a plate across the room because they're tired of eating lentils.
I suppose I should think of a good Lenten course of action for this year. Last year we tried to add a little more prayer into our lives, but it was very difficult because Lent seems to be a difficult time as it is and we were approaching the end of our catechumenate, which I hear is almost universally a rough patch.
