Happy St. Patrick's Day!


The kids did their traditional scouring the living room to find where the leprechaun hid the clues this morning.  (The back side of the chocolate coins are numbered, so the kids could put them in order.)
 
Which led them to the leprechaun and his pot of gold...in a pot! :-)
 
 And our corned beef and cabbage is in the crock-pot cooking.
 
No parade this year...or endless shamrock inspired crafts...or fun Irish treats...I'm really slacking, aren't I?  It was so much easier to do all those things when the kids were little and we were home all the time.
 
If I am feeling ambitious, I may make some Irish Soda Bread, or I may nap instead.  Whatever illness struck over the weekend is really taking a toll on me....and the fact that I'm avoiding caffeine until I feel better may be adding to the pure exhaustion. :-/
 
I hope you all have a Happy St. Patrick's Day! :-)

How about some wonderful beer bread? You could even freeze a loaf for your sister! Of course, she would probably wait until you are feeling better
