Happy Birthday, Canada.
Today is St Patrick’s Day, and although I don’t have any Irish antecedents, my husband does. He, in fact, is half Irish.
I don’t really understand why St Patrick’s Day has become so popular (is it the green beer? the riddance of green snakes?), but since I’m a half French frog, I do understand the green background and that it confers a certain ability to stand up to the preconceived notions of others.
So here’s to the Irish! May they live as long as they want, and never want as long as they live.
We had a beautifully sunny December 31 and a very enjoyable day together.
Good wishes to all of you for 2022. 🍀
Celebrating my anniversary (of first meeting my M) this evening at the Naramata Inn just outside of Penticton.
Happy New Year’s Eve. 🙂
Happy Boxing Day. 🙂
Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, I hope you’re safe and enjoying the season. 🎄
Happy Friday. 🎄
Have a cozy Thursday. 🙂
I am back in Penticton where although there’s a bit of snow, it’s much warmer than the -30°C (-22F) I left behind in the subarctic. Penticton’s -2C (28F) is so much better; almost balmy! 😉
Walking through the crunchy leaves has been an enjoyable autumn experience accompanied by strong childhood memories of playing in the leaf piles.
I’ve always liked this Bugs Bunny cartoon; another enjoyable childhood memory associated with this time of year. After all this time, it still makes me laugh. https://youtu.be/NoSVnc-7eTk
I hope you have a little chocolate and enjoy the day, perhaps with some crunchy leaves to walk through. 🎃
