St. Patty's Day

Hey everyone... first off I wanted to wish everyone a happy belated St. Patrick's Day! Being what I like to call "Irish by injection," we had corned beef, cabbage, carrots, & potatoes. YUM! I only made the one Stamping Bella card (which can be seen in a previous post) and sent out a few, but this was a first for me. I'm not usually organized enough to make/mail them. I'm too busy working on Easter, Mother's Day & Father's Day. I'm ahead of the game this year though... woooo hoooo!!! Getting back to the corned beef... yesterday, Lucinda Scala Quinn from MadHungry, had on an uncorned beef that looked totally YUMMY! I so can't wait to give it a try. No boiling. It was coated with the spices that she turned into a paste using the food processor. Then, with the leftovers, she make a faux rueben sandwich. Looked too darn good!

Ed & I had our eyes examined this morning. Good grief, I desperately needed reading glasses. The arm broke off mine about 2 weeks ago; they were 10 years old so how could I complain? You'd be surprised how hard it is to keep them balanced on your nose with only the one arm keeping it steady.... It was Ed's first ever eye exam and I don't think he liked it. I can only imagine if he had to go through what we do between the annual GYN exam and then that *wonderful* mammogram! Pass out, I'm guessing! lol So, Ed ended up needed bifocals, mostly for the close up and mid range of your sight. His distance is still in good shape, except for right this minute because his pupils are dialated. Qui, qui, qui (first syllable in quiet). hehe I'm tough, huh? Nope, no sympathy coming from this baby... Sorry Charlie! Oh yeah... I got the cutest little glasses; I went with burgandy metal frames. Have never had an actual color in all the years I've been wearing glasses. Can't wait!!

It's after 1 am and I gotta get my butt to sleep. Got lots of errands to run tomorrow, but I've already started another post that will begin a "series" of sorts I'm going to do on organzing our goodies. For now, it's bedtime. Sweet dreams...

TIl the next time...
