This morning I put on a khaki green shirt and got out green shamrock necklaces. Even though in the strange new world we're living in it didn't feel like a day for celebrations, St. Patrick's Day only comes once a year.
Tony was working from home, and after I arranged a necklace around my neck I also put one on him. I actually had a commitment today (which I shall tell you about later in the week), and left the house earlier than I have in quite some time.
During my time out I didn't see very many people, and the ones I saw didn't look very cheerful. Instead, they carefully distanced themselves as they went about their business.
The highlight of the day was dinner. Knowing I would have a busy day today I had cooked and sliced a corned beef brisket over the weekend. Tonight Tony used the broth to cook a combination of cabbage, red potatoes, and carrots. After dinner, we broke out mint chip ice cream-green, in honor of the day.
Five years ago today: Happy St. Patrick's Day!
