St. Patrick’s Day Druthers

March 17, 2011 | My Jottings

Today is St. Patrick’s Day, and I’m thinking about Ireland.

If I had my St. Patrick’s Day druthers….

…Michael and I would take a moseying walk over these hills…

…until we reached the edge of the sea, where we could spread out a simple picnic lunch in the cheerful yellow flowers right here…

…and when we woke from our post picnic nap we would return to our
cozy little cottage in the glen…

…where Michael would be so happy to see a nice loaf of soda bread
come out of the oven to cool…

…and some savory Irish stew bubbling away on the stove…

…and I would put my feet up by the fire and continue to read this…

…and we would probably not end our evening with this because we are so
impossibly stodgy and fuddy-duddish…

…but would instead get our laughs and fun from something like this…

…but that’s only if we had our St. Patrick’s Day druthers…

    If I had my druthers, I’d be in Madison preparing a nice birthday feast for Kyle, then I’d clean his apartment and do all his laundry.
    Your druthers sounds very nice too! 🙂

  2. Just Julie says:

    Kyle is blessed to have a mom like you, Deb. See you soon!

  3. Sharon says:

    I would pay good money to see Edith and Millie in aprons like those.

  4. Just Julie says:

    How much? Let me know.

  5. Ganeida says:

    lol How the Irish saved Civilisation is brilliant. Not that we do Paddy’s Day, but you know…;P We’re very Celtic round here. ?

  6. Just Julie says:

    I thought that book was amazing, Ganeida. You were probably a silent collaborator on that book! 🙂
