"If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." — E.B. White

Irish Eyes Are Smiling

The Farmer's mother is a Gallagher. She tells stories of the distant family farm in Ireland she visited as a child.... I soooooo want to go with our family. The Farmer does not like airplanes. nuff said. 
I've travelled lots, lived in Europe, yet never done anything but flown over The Emerald Isle. I yearn to be there. 


I am certain I'd feel like I never wanted to leave.








Oh well, tonight we'll enjoy our wee party with corned beef n cabbage n green mashed potatoes (and milk). There'll be jigs danced and bow ties worn.
And Irish eyes will be smiling.


In This Irish Home

May these walls be filled with laughter,
may it reach from floor to rafter.
May the roof keep out the rain,
may sunshine warm each windowpane.
And may the door be open wide
to let the Good Lord's love inside


Wishing you all a blessed day!
xoxo Leslie
