HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!
May your day be full of good luck, happy reading, and anything else your heart desires.
When I ponder this day, I think of my son’s sojourn in Ireland, and the wonderful photos he took while there.
I have many of these framed and hanging on my bedroom walls, along with a few other mementos of Ireland, like this vignette on a table.
There are two “Irish Prayer” mementos; an Irish symbol of luck in the shamrock worn by the bear; and an Irish coffee mug. Not to mention the doll who kind of looks Irish.
There’s also a postcard someone sent me from Ireland.
Today it’s raining outside, so I guess we could say that the weather is celebrating all things Irish, too. As my son says, fondly: in Ireland, you have the “pissing rain.”
No, I’m not reading an Irish themed book today, but one about teenage love…and a break-up that anyone could have seen coming from Day One. Except the two of them, of course. Why We Broke Up is a letter written by one teen to the former loved one after the break-up, and a reminder of what teen angst felt like (for those of us no longer in that age-group).
Later I’ll be posting a review over at an appropriate blog for today’s weather: Rainy Days and Mondays.
Until then, enjoy your day, and Happy St. Patrick’s Day! What are you doing to celebrate?
