The Wearing Of The Green

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!


  1. Glad you enjoyed St Paddy's day!

  2. I'm having an Irish dinner tonight. Cabbage and potatoes! I wore green yesterday. I only saw one person, was returning a couple of cats fixed Monday.

    1. The cabbage cooked in the corned beef broth is my favorite part of the meal!

  3. The cat forgot to remind me it was the 17th.
