Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!!

For me St. Patrick’s Day is a reminder that spring is not too far away.  Usually by March 1st, I’m tired of winter and can’t wait for the seasons to change.  Because I slept in this morning and was rushing to get the kids to school on time, I forgot to wear something green.  However, at the Newport office, I have a green coffee cup to celebrate.  Too bad it is coffee only.  I guess I could have some “Irish coffee!”

Tuesday I was grilling pork chops and noticed the lilies were starting to grow down by the back yard fence.  Spring is on the way!!

Here is an Irish St. Patrick’s Day Toast I found today.

Saint Patrick was a gentleman,
Who through strategy and stealth,
Drove all the snakes from Ireland,
Here’s a toasting to his health.
But not too many toastings
Lest you lose yourself and then
Forget the good Saint Patrick
And see all those snakes again.
‘Beannachtam na Feile Padraig!’
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
