St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I am celebrating indoors.

Rain is keeping me out of the garden.
Too muddy to plant potatoes.

I am enjoying silence.
I am enjoying the rain.

My books entertain me.

Every March I read folktales of Ireland.

I am fascinated.

This is a rich culture.

Books lay open for quick reads.
I walk by and read a page or two.

I keep a readers journal.
I often refer to my notes.

Every year I try to learn a new skill.

Each month there are different motifs,
different special days.

This March I read about the Irish in America.

I am in love with words.

I wish you a
"Top O' The Mornin" and
a song for your heart.

May you know the beauty of the
May you hear the ringing of the Fairy bells.

Happy St. Patrick's Day.
Happy wearing of the green.
