Happy St. Patrick's Day!! (late!)

Dear Friends,

I am late in posting this, but I'm going to go ahead and post it because I had a nice tree fixed for the holiday!  I think I've told you before that we have an annual St. Patrick's Day Parade and we always have tons of green beads!  I actually didn't attend the parade this year, but I understand it was a fun time and rather lively!!

Here are two views of my tree, full of fun green things!  I have two other pieces stitched, and I hope to get those totally finished, but of course that will be for next year, now!!
haha     I always think this is such a fun holiday!


Spring has finally sprung around here, I think!!  Our weather has been so strange.  It's been really cold (for us) and down around freezing at night and highs in the low 50s.  This week should have highs in the 70s-low 80s and lows in the 50s!  If only it would stay that way!!!  I took this photo a couple or three weeks ago.  This Japanese Magnolia is now all green leaves.  I started not to post it because it's not current, but I thought I would anyway since it's pretty.  This is beside the Cathedral.

We had an ordination over the weekend.  A seminarian became a transitional deacon.  He will become a priest next summer.  These are always such joyous events.  I played the organ, of course, and the singing was really lovely!  A glorious evening!  The other seminarians are seated in the pews on the left side.  It's so nice to know that so many young men will become priests.

You know I have to give a quick update on my granddaughter!!!  She is smiling and being silly!


Thank you for visiting and come back soon!
