With all the glitzy shamrocks, green beer, outlandish outfits, and leprechauns bounding about today, I thought I'd try to share something more historic. This stained glass window is in St. Benin's Episcopal Church in Kilbannon, Galway, Ireland. Interesting that the great St. Paddy himself is shown with shamrock in hand. No matter how you do or do not celebrate the legends, achievements and/or stories of the great Irish Saint, best wishes for a happy Monday and the beginning of the what we can only hope will be a glance at spring coming the end of the week.
After moving around the world with the US Navy 19 times in 26 years, I've settled with hubby in coastal Maine where I get to use my MLS from CUA being a small town librarian. Besides being an avid reader, I'm a talker, Mom to the world's two greatest grownups, grandma (aka Tutu) to the bestest girl ever born, cross-stitcher, retired volunteer administrator, sports fan.
I swim four times a week (listening to audio books while I do so) and read/review at least 4 books a week. Can't think of anything more fun to do in retirement.
