Happy St. Patrick's Day


Steven and I dancing with glow sticks in
our kitichen St. Patrick's Day party



Look at those glow sticks go. More kitchen dancing fun.

Today I'm marking and trying to fit my marking around
teaching this afternoon and having a happy little
St. Patrick's Day celebration tonight with Christopher
and Steven. Steven decorated the house while I
was at work. Christopher came over and we had
green champagne, and a festive supper. We always
give out green loot bags with silly green toys and
green candies. The hit was green light wands,
which Christopher says we can use next time we
go to a rave. (A joke - we will never go to a rave!)
He took some pictures of Steven and
me dancing with the glow sticks.

That's all for today, because I'm still marking and
it's an excrutiatingly early morning tomorrow.

Have a super, super St. Patrick's Day!

Those ribbons of green graffiti, swirling calligraphic bodies kissing the blarney stone in a darkened kitchen – hot, cool, I know you guys do this every night! I know, I know Barbara and Steven

Hi Liz,

Thanks so much. Erin go Bragh indeed. I hope you had a good one. Ours was a bit rushed this year because we had so much work to do.

Take care,

Barbara

Hi Eldon,

Happy Sr. Patrick's Day. I am in fact not Irish, although ancestors lived there, but they were really French escapees from some religious nastiness of the times. This is a long while ago.

But hey, green and a bit of champagne, what can be the harm? It's my favorite celebration.

Take care,

Barbara

Hi Marcia,

I don't know how you got our number.

True. Just dancing around the kitchen every night with the glow sticks. Hard to get anything else done really! I know it's the same for you and David.

Love Barbara
