Yes indeed, St. Patrick’s Day is here and who will be celebrating? What will you be up to? I just have to ask…Did any of you doubt it? I have a curious and inquisitive mind, so does Autumn…So, I am not alone! There are so many things going on with this holiday it seems. Parades, Festivals, Parties and Shamrocks are all over the place! We have the tradition of wearing green, if we so choose to do. I am wearing green, but it’s my favorite color luckily…I am not lacking in green in all shades of clothing. How about you kind readers, who is wearing green today? Autumn is on it, she has a very pretty green top on today, too.
Irish foods will also be eaten…Lots of Corned Beef and Cabbage, Irish soda bread, Irish stew, Irish Coffee and most anything green I hear tell. Another fun thing…Leprechauns, very magicial indeed! Keep your eyes open, you might catch a glimpse of one or two! Let’s see we also have drinking of the green beer, since the Twinnies don’t drink any type of alcohol that leaves us out. Thoughts on green beer, it’s entirely up to the beer drinker…to each his or her own I say. If you don’t find it repulsive drinking a tinted green beer, have fun but do drink sensibly and have a designated driver and do be safe! I had to say it, I can’t help myself on that one.
Autumn and I aren’t do anything out of the ordinary or special. But we do wish you all a very Happy St. Patrick’s Day! In celebration of the day I will leave you with two very nice Irish Blessings. “May God grant you always…A Sunbeam to warm you, A Moonbeam to charm you, A sheltering Angel, so nothing can harm you. Laughter to cheer you, Faithful friends near you, and whenever you pray, Heaven to hear you.” The other one is just as nice…”May the road rise up to meet you, May the wind be ever at your back. May the Sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of his hand.” 🙂 🙂
Happy St. Paddy’s day to all 🙂 TF ❤
I agree Twinnie…Wishing everyone a Happy St. Patrick’s Day, too! :)I am also wondering what the kind readers have planned for today…I hope they share! 🙂 TF ❤
Love St. Patty’s Day! Beef and Cabbage is stewing in the crock pot. I had Irish Cream hot cocoa last night. Luv,luv, luv the shamrock shake at McD’s! I know its commercialized, but hey its a one time of the year thing. And yes it also makes me want pickles…*hunchin shoulders*…great post as always. You gals never disappoint.
Yay Indi, I am happy to hear you are loving St. Patrick’s Day! 🙂 Those shamrock shakes are good from McD’s, Autumn and I both love them, too. Like you said, we only get them once a year after all, let’s go for it! You made me laugh about it also makes you want pickles, I know you simply love your pickles Indi! 🙂 Well, they are green so why not? 😉 Thanks for liking the post and also your kind words, good to see you here! 🙂
Thanks for the Irish Blessings. Very nice. Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you, too. Sincerely, Connie Webb
Thank you for the Happy St. Patrick Day wishes Connie! 🙂 You are so welcome about the Irish Blessings, too. Wishing you a Happy St. Patrick’s Day also! It was nice to see you here, Autumn and I both had missed you! Take care and Hugs! Gabby 🙂
I hope you lovely ladies had a good St, Patrick Day! God Bless 🙂
Such lovely post Gabby!
Both Autumn and I had a good St. Patrick’s Day, neither one of us did anything too wild or exciting! Hope your day was a good one, too PJ! Thanks so much for liking the post! 🙂 God Bless! 🙂
A little late, but thank you, Gabby, for the beautiful blessings. I have sung the 2nd one in church, which I love, but hadn’t heard the 1st one, equally beautiful. We had a fun, family day out together on the 17th, and had a late lunch, so we weren’t hungry for dinner. Last night, we had our St. Patty’s dinner and it was yummy. I make corned beef and cabbage about once a year, but it turned out good. Anyway, blessings to and your twin, always~ xx
Better late than never, and good to hear about your St. Patrick’s Day Lauren. Sounds like a fun time with your family, too! 🙂 That is awesome about you singing the second Irish Blessing in church! 🙂 I am glad you got to see the first one since you hadn’t heard it before. They are both beautiful I think, too. Happy to know your corned beef and cabbage turned out well, it does sound good! 🙂 Thank you for the blessings back to Autumn and me! 🙂 xx
That’s it… I’m not eating corned beef ever again. Ugh.
I never would have thought you would eat corned beef ever anyway! 🙂
