Look for things to celebrate!
I'll admit it. I love looking for things to celebrate. If you've ever experienced a life-changing illness or event, you know what I mean. You realize life is rather short and one needs to "seize the day." When you're checking the calendar or recording in your date book, do you ever notice some crazy holidays? I checked out some of the things to celebrate for March. Check it out~
May you always have~walls for the winds, a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire, laughter to cheer you, those you love near you, and all your heart might desire. Irish Blessing

Just have fun with it!
I made Irish stew...or rather I should say, Irish BEEF stew. In doing research for this blog, I found out that Irish stew is made with lamb. So what we've been eating all these years at our house is actually Irish beef stew. And put some lime sherbet in a punch bowl and pour 7-Up or ginger ale over it--makes a good green punch for the kids--they love it. And of course, decorate shamrock shaped cookies for dessert. Nothing better!
If you're into doing crafts with your kids, I found some fun ones:
For making a pinwheel shamrock with the little guys, here's a fun site~
And one I'd like to try with my older grands involves painting rocks for the Kindness Rocks Project. I hope we can get together over spring break and paint some rocks with a St. Patrick's Day motif.
To all the days here and after--may they be filled with fond memories, happiness, and laughter. Irish toast
Happy St. Paddy's Day, friends! And if you've done some fun St. Patrick activities with your kids or grandchildren, please share. And if you've got some good Irish recipes, share those as well. I love to hear from you!
