Luck O' The Irish

jack's 1st st. patty's day
WELL, ST. PATTY's DAY has come & gone and we have the leftovers of corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, turnips & soda bread to prove it! It was a day that completely sneaked up on me. I didn't buy the corned beef until yesterday morning, I TOTALLY forgot to wear green and I couldn't find my Bing Crosby Irish CD. :(   BUT, for the 3 hours that the corned beef boiled and wafted it's familiar scent throughout the whole house, I was feeling sentimental about the tradition that I remember so well growing up. And Jack downed the food like he's been waiting for it all his life. It must be in our blood. Oh wait, it is!

i love corned beef and cabbage! but i didn't do it yesterday...i couldn't find the right stuff at wallyworld. and then it felt weird to be eating that the day after palm sunday! strange calendar we serve!

i am thinking on the coplay stuff! i always feel guilty blogging because i have so much else to be doing, know what i mean. but i do want to talk about it on my blog--very imp. topic, in my opinion.
