Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Whenever there is happiness
Hope you'll be there too,
Wherever there are friendly smiles
Hope they'll smile on you,
Whenever there is sunshine,
Hope it shines especially for you to make each day
For you as bright as it can be.

-Irish Blessing

And yes, I'm wearing green. :) Are you?

Nope. No green. I'm hoping to be pinched...such is the current dreariness of my social life ;)

Caroline said...

Love that poem! :) Happy St. Patty's day to you too :) I'm wearing a light green scarf...but my shirt is like hot pink. I'm sure I'm breaking some kind of St. Patrick's Day rule here. :)

Have a happy St. Patrick's Day. I'm wearing my Celtics t-shirt - Kevin Garnett #5 Irish socks/made in Ireland - green with sheep on them. And I had a green coat on when I went out.
That's all the green I even own.

Jules said...

Happy St Pat's! and I have on a Blue KY wildcat shirt with green socks :)

Happy St. Patrick's day to you too! I loved the Irish blessing. Of course I'm wearing green, I am Irish after all. ;)

Larissa said...

I'm wearing green! Adorable Snoopy btw.

Lovely poem. Happy St Patrick's Day. Not wearing green though even though my family came from Ireland.

Sun Singer said...

I'm wearing enough green to be able to claim I'm wearing green.

Janet Johnson said...

We just finished our green lunch at pre-school: grapes, green kool-aid, pickles, green chips, and green-frosted cookies. :)

Summer Ross said...

Just got back from getting coffee downtown. There was a guy in a kilt playing bagpipes on the street corner. Kind of wish he was there a little more often. Made me smile.

Jade said...

Happy Saint Patrick's Day to you, too! I just realized I'm wearing green but did not plan it. Beautiful Irish blessing...:)

Sarah Allen said...

Oops, no green. I might have to pinch myself.

Tere Kirkland said...

Does olive green count? I realized last weekend that I have no kelly green in my wardrobe. Must remedy that immediately! ;)

Happy St. Patrick's Day!


Donea Lee said...

I'm not wearing green but I'm not leaving the house. I live in Savannah which is currently busting with more people than usual. It is scary out there.

Helen Ginger said...

I am not wearing green, alas. I hadn't even realized it as St. Patrick's Day until I got online. I had thought it was Saturday when I'm going to a St. Pat's potluck.

Elaine AM Smith said...

Happy St Patrick's Day :D
I'm rocking with the whole white leggings, green dress and orange hoody look. What can I say? ;) I was born in Ireland.

Lynda R Young said...

I don't own a lot of green...so I wore green underwear...lol...too much info? ;)

Erin Kane Spock said...

Yep, I'm wearing green, though I was really impressed with one of my students for having the background knowledge to wear orange.
Happy St. Paddy's day!

The Words Crafter said...

You found Snoopy!!!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! And yep, shamrock earrings and socks, and a green work shirt (with daycare's name on it).

Hannah Kincade said...

I was wearing green but completely on accident! Good thing I'm already Irish so I don't really have to worry about it. :D

Happy St. Patty's!

Shelley said...

Nice poem, and no I forgot to wear my green today! Happy St. Patrick's Day to you too! :)

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

I wore green beads and ate green ice cream. I laughed a lot with my best friend about younger days when we drank lime vodka on St. Patty's.

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Yup. I'm wearing a green shirt and I baked soda bread and am on my way to a friend's for dinner. Happy St. Pat's to you, too!

Charles Gramlich said...

and the same back at you.

Anonymous said...

I am not wearing green. Been under the weather and kinda grouchy so I'm in a Bah Humbug mood. But just opened a bottle of red wine and should be feeling better soon.

Scarlett Clay said...

This was the first St Patty's ever that I didn't wear green, and man can my kids pinch hard! lol :)
