Since we have our very own Irish lass here, a very happy St. Paddy’s Day to everyone, but especially to Ellie. I hope everyone’s broken out their sheleighleighs, made some green beer, scrubbed their potatoes, and kissed their dear mothers. Any more tropes out there to throw into the pot? 😉🥳🥳🥳
I wore a green sweater today, and I put on green nail polish. I haven’t worn any nail polish at all since last year!
I’ve told this before, I know. . . I have a vivid memory of being in elementary school one St. Patrick’s day, and my Irish friend, Brenda, made a green construction paper shamrock and wrote “Kiss me, I’m Irish” on it, and pinned it to her shirt. She made one for our principal, too, who was also Irish. We stopped by the office, and Brenda told the secretary that she wanted to give something to the principal. The secretary told her to go in, and a minute later Brenda and our principal - a nun - came out of the office laughing and wearing their “Kiss me,I’m Irish” shamrocks. That was the one and only time I ever saw our principal laughing. She was usually pretty scary!
Thanks or, given the day thats in it, go raibh maith agat! 💚 Bit of a subdued St Patrick’s day here I’m afraid because of the lockdown. But at least the sun is shining after weeks of rain so St Patrick must be looking after us today! ☘️😁
Even though Dan's heritage is entirely of Irish origins (all four sides - McCaffery, McDonald, Ryan and Fitzgerald) he doesn't celebrate St. Paddy's Day and never has. He even went to a high school and elementary school called St. Patrick's but it never clicked with him. He likes Irish folk music and we both enjoyed our trip to Ireland but he considers himself pure Canadian through and through.
So today is just Wednesday in our house. 😊
But Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone who celebrates it!🎉💚
