Happy Saint Patrick's Day

I noticed the next step towards spring today. As I walked the path behind our house I noticed the hickory and oak trees are budding out and you can see the yellow green leaves beginning to show. I'm sitting on the deck this evening writing on my laptop and watching the sun sink slowly behind the horizon. The wind is cool this evening but today when the sun was high, I basked in the warm rays like a turtle on a log.
Just now my dog Taylor tried to get in my lap. Ordinarily I would let my dog get in my lap, but Taylor now weighs about 110 pounds. She gained most of her weight since last summer's rabbit hole episode. That's a story for another time.
Jilda's in the kitchen cooking for our guest that will be here shortly. I can smell the Irish bread and the smell of the corned beef simmering is heaven in a crock pot.
I hope you all have a wonderful St. Patty's Day.
May the Irish hills caress you
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish infold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.
