This week I am in a Maxine mood. Can't ya tell ? March is such a tease they are calling for temperatures today in the 70's. I want to go outside in short sleeves and dig in the dirt. O Wise One is planting potatoes and onions today. I have to stay inside though because I have the flu. Just my luck. Fever, chills, sneezing and sinus congestion. It's all Baby Hank's fault because he gave it to me!
Like so many Americans we too celebrate being Irish today. They say everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day. O Wise One's family is truly Irish : ) He is of Ulster Scotts Irish heritage. His family originating from County Down, Killinchy, Northern Ireland. The picture below is the Killinchy Road. St Patricks tomb is in County Down also.
Above is Killinchy Presbyterian Church where most of both his great grandfathers and great grandmothers' ancestors are buried. Below the home of his great great grandmother's family .
To celebrate we will be eating cabbage and potatoes and corn beef today. Anyone else out there Irish? How do you celebrate St. Patricks' Day
Happy St. Patricks' Day
