pull out all your sprinkles!
It’s almost Spring!! Pull out some rainbows and bright green clover! Here are a few last minute ideas to do today. As I’m working on these photos, I’m listening to a dramatization of the life of St. Patrick here (link only good for this week! Or you can buy the 2 episodes about St. Patrick here, so worth it!) Celebrating a man with a Heart Afire, a slave boy who changed an entire nation!
To do a bit of fun decorating/eating, I just pulled out some things I had around here, green jello, green tea, green towel, mixed up a batch of lemon buttermilk pound cake and tinted it green, we’ll eat some “Irish” food, Irish soda bread and a few treats (chocolates!) while we listen to the story of St. Patrick. Check out my other St. Paddy’s Day posts! 😉

quickly decorate the mini green bundt cake with some white candy melts, rainbow sprinkles and shamrock sprinkles (and a chocolate coin!)
I love to look at another sign of spring, the kids’ snow pea seedlings!
So, here’s wishing the top o’ the morning to ya! I’ll leave you with an old Irish blessing: “May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back, may the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of His hand.”
