For St. Patrick’s Day Grandpa and Grandma were here. We enjoyed scones and biscuits for breakfast while some lovely Irish hymns set the mood in the background.

That evening was a lot of fun. Phil and I were invited to our other pastor’s home for a St. Pat’s Day fun fancy fiesta.

I was truly seeing GREEN by the end of the night! I won the LCR pot of gold in a fierce show down! Woot! (‘scuse La Bad Photo!)

A couple days later the Church remembers Joseph, guardian of Jesus. I like observing this day. It’s a good one for fathers. This year we were hosting an after Bible study get together so I thought I’d honor the men who came with one of these cards.

And I made some boring old sugar cookies for the kids. No. These aren’t “Ls” Lily, they’re carpenter squares, an attribute of St. Joseph the carpenter.

And eat blueberries because they’re blue, Mary’s color. Sort of. Really they’re purple though right?

So that’s how we’ve observed these days this month. Nothing fancy, but just part of our day. A habit of taking a few minutes to observe the day on our church calendar and to teach the babies.

    Look at you, raking in the loot. Maybe I, too, should get out of the house once in a while.
