Are you wearing green today?

Maisie Rose O'Neill - Irish girl

Maisie is! Let me promise you though that no dog was harmed with dyes during the making of this post. Geez, don't they have anything better to do in Boulder?!

Hope that you all have a lovely St. Patrick's Day. My hubby, (Chef JJ as he's know around these parts) was busy last night making Irish soda bread and colcannon for tonights dinner. You know, the O'Neill's take St. Patty's Day pretty seriously...so there has to be a celebration. We'll be taking the bread and potatoes to the Mooney's (another good Irish name) where it will meet up with corned beef and cabbage (blech for THIS vegetarian!)...and we will toast to the good luck of the coming spring. Here's a little blessing for all of you today...

May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.
~ Irish Blessing

Back tomorrow with a "Pay it Forward" post!

I hear you with the vegetarian thing. I spent hours making Irish lamb stew for Kevin last night....and all I ate was a lousy veggie burger. Happy St. Patrick's Day! Maisie looks so cute asleep! Happy belated birthday!

Ahhh ..... Maisie is adorable.

My family also takes St. Patrick's day pretty seriously. With a name like Doyle you have to.

Loved your " Pay it Foward" paintings. Wonderful thing to do!

LOVELY green dog...so cute. We had a good St. Patty's day, partaking in a long mountain hike but was too tired to go out and celebrate it in style with some green beer.

I even forgot to wear green on my hike...

But I had a green lighter with me.

Ha ha ha to the Maisie green!

But I think I like pink poodles more, haaa haa haa hee hee.

And a big 'blech' to corned beef and cabbage! Hope you found enough to eat!

Maisie looks like I would feel after that dinner. ;-)
