Happy Saint Patrick's Day

I have not had to cook
since Baby Bright Eyes was born.
What a nice group of gals  here.
Mimi's friends took it upon themselves
to deliver dinner again last night.
No struggling over a stove for a few days for us.
We are very well taken care of...
thank you very much.

We have been baby-sitting
and baby-nursing 
not me nursing-that ship has sailed...or should 
I say that anchor has DROPPED.
We are delighting in every little detail of 
BRIGHT EYES life and.
someone has taken up cooking for us!
Someone realized that we are Irish~
although who ISN'T Irish on St. Paddy's Day?,
and someone presented us with homemade
IRISH STEW and IRISH SODA BREAD.
Hearty and rich.

Did I mention the 
IRISH SODA BREAD?
Did I mention that it came with 
homemade Cinnamon Butter?
Did I mention that I might have dated a leprechaun once?
I may have to show you his picture later.
He is not being very cooperative right now.
I think I hear some leprechauns right now.
Hmmmm...Could be mischief afoot here.
Oh- wait-
It is only the Dynamic Duo getting revved up for
the day.
Happy Saint Patrick's Day.
Hope YOUR Monday is a good one!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you Diana! I have a wee bit of Irish in me as well. Kindred spirits? Sure, why not. Hope you are living it up big time with the grandkids. Glad to here there are some really nice ladies taking care of your nutritional needs. That's always a blessing in itself. Have a great week.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you to!! How nice that people are pitching in like that! Looks like some great food (I've never had Irish Stew nor soda bread)! I guess that says a lot about me! You probably have yourself quite busy with the Dynamic Duo there!

Red Rose Alley said...

The Irish stew and bread look so delicious, and homemade cinnamon butter, oh my!

That's funny that you mentioned that everybody's Irish on St. Patrick's Day because I just saw a sign at a restaurant me and husband went to this weekend, and it said the same thing.

Happy St. Patrick's Day Diana!

love,
~Sheri

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you dear friend. What a beautiful picture of those sweet little boys. How wonderful to have such great friends. I can hardly wait to put on my Corned Beef and Cabbage for dinner. IT's going into the crock pot after I finish watering the front. I also purchased some Irish Soda Bread and I have almost have finished it off before St. Patrick's Day.
Have a wonderful day.
Mary

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you, Diana! You are lucky to have such kind friends. Yummy!

Charm Bracelet Diva {at Home} said...

Happy St. Patrick's Day from one Irish lass to another:) Isn't it nice when dinner is "delivered?" When I had my second and third babies I was in a "playgroup" of moms who were all having babies right and left. So someone coordinated a schedule (this spanned about two years, mind you) so that we all had dinner delivered every day for a week after our babies' births. It was fabulous! (Especially since I had three c-sections!) How nice you can all just focus on the baby! xoKathleen

Jettie said...

Yummy looking, I'm sure you enjoyed it a lot.

Blessed Serendipity said...

Hope you are enjoying a happy St. Patty's day Diana. That stew and bread looks delicious. Enjoy your grands.

Congrats on the world's cutest baby - she's adorable!
P.S. - I dated a leprechaun once too - and there was definitely no pot of gold at the end of his rainbow!

What wonderful friends your daughter has. That's absolutely fantastic that you've been able to focus on the grands and daughter during this time and not worrying about meals. I hope you had a lovely St. Patrick's day loving up all your beautiful grandchildren. HUGS!

Excuse me while I wipe my eyes...I am laughing so hard about dropped anchors. I'm envisioning someone removing their bra and yelling, anchors away! Bahahahaha!
