Happy St Patty’s Day

Just wanted to wish everyone a
Happy St Patricks Day

And though I am not Irish
my husband is.

and really isn’t everyone a little Irish
on this day?

I  realized that I own no Irish Decorations
except for this little snow globe that plays music.

We were shopping in the Pink Sleigh( a Christmas shop) near where we live
and he spotted it. I wasn’t as thrilled as he was but
I went back and bought it for him.
He was surprised when he opened the present that Christmas.

Me too……it doesn’t look good anywhere in our house at
Christmas time…..being a snow globe I thought it should be out that time of year.

You know I only just realized it really isn’t meant for Christmas:)

We’ll also be having the usual Corned Beef, cabbage, potatoes and
carrots tonight,
even though I haven’t made it in years.
I don’t like cooking meat but
the Irishman likes eating it on occasion……..
Why should he suffer?

I’ll be eating the veggies
and maybe have a Guinness ( or two)

What do you do on St Patty’s Day?

I'm sure I will find lots of it next week and we will celebrate all over again. I mean that is all we could do, right;) Hope your evening is great! Happy St. Patricks day to you and George:)

Hi Carole!
Your husbands globe is cute and I agree...He's a cute little dude!

I forgot how I used to love it! Thank you for bringing it to mind!
Have a wonderful evening!

I am Irish, but the only way we'll get corned beef is if the man takes me out to dinner and the only green I'll be awearin' is my old age patina!

But I'm still looking for me pot o'gold!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you and George, Carole! How sweet of you to buy that snow globe for you hubby, even though you didn't like it at first. I hope you enjoyed your dinner and the Guiness(es) :-).
Have a lovely weekend!

I do not decorate for St. Patrick's Day but enjoy making the traditional dinner! My daughter would be so disappointed if I didn't because it is her favorite!

Hey Girl
Sounds delicious, I love cabbage... the meat isn't so much my thing either but I do like the cabbage flavored with it.
I bet your starting to get ready for the season, I know your busy time is near... Happy Spring!
Blessings this Sunday

well you may not be irish...
but this post had to make your husband proud.
i adored the music.
i almost always silence blogs with music,
but i listened to this all the way.
happy springtime xxx
