Happy St. Patrick's Day

I'm keeping it low key this year on St. Patrick's Day. Many times we have spent the evening in an Irish Pub drinking some beer and eating fish and chips. But this year not really in the mood to party. DH is at a hockey game (Senators vs NJ) so I am here by myself just enjoying the solitude. Sipping a a glass of cheer for the day as I have some Irish blood in me. My great great grandparents arrived during the Irish famine and settled in Canada. One day I'll visit Ireland as it draws me there. So raise a glass to toast those that were, those that are and those that are yet to come.
And a big thankyou to all my blogger friends who keep me grounded. You are truly appreciated.

My all-time favourite greeting is the Irish blessing - do you know it?

"May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rain fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the hollow of his hand."

Lovely. Happy St Patrick's Day Sandy.

Thank you so much for leaving a comment on my latest post. It really meant a lot to me that you remembered the post about my mom from last year. She was a special lady and so are you. XO
