SATURDAY POTPOURRI: IRISH MEMENTOS — MARCH 17

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?
