Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Soda bread on the counter, colcannon in the pot, St. Patricks on the table and that's about all I've got.

Nobody is sick, but our allergies are making little things like, oh...gee... breathing kind of miserable right now. But we did enjoy the nice weather enough to get some things cleaned up in the yard (well, Sean and The Professor did) and to get the grill fired up for the first time this season! So, no corned beef here, our cabbage is mixed into our potatoes and our dessert was picked out by the 15 year old man child who guessed correctly in the family pool that it would take 5 ballots to elect the new pope. We should take that child to the racetrack.

Oh, and if you haven't yet had the joy of your children dancing around singing "Give me a beer!" then you must show them this immediately. (Feed readers might have to click through.) So that mine aren't the only ones. (Yes, we think this is funny even though Sean is allergic to beer and I don't like it.)

Happy Feast of St. Patrick!!!


  1. Wow! Those are some BIG words to put into song!! Happy St. Patrick's day to you and your family, Charlotte.

  2. Love the picture (and your rhyme)!! :) Happy St. Patrick's Day! My children enjoyed the video this year, especially the boys since they have started studying biology. Last year they thought it was funny, but didn't really get it.

    Sorry about the allergies... I wish I could say that nobody is sick here. I suppose it had to hit eventually.
