Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Top o' the morning to you!

Hubby and I have declared today to be a pajama was a little (well, a LOT) busy and the upcoming week looks equally crazy, so we're going to do what we're supposed to do today, which is REST.

We got up early yesterday and headed to Columbus to watch our favorite hockey team, the BlueJackets, do their practice skate. That was followed by a q&a session with the head coach and a player on the DL.  We followed that by a trip to Columbus' North Market, a quaint repurposed area of town home to an unbelievable number of vendors - food and otherwise.  We lunched on keilbasa sandwiches and potato pierogies...and then we headed home to feed the pups before heading out to church.  We came home and completed final preparations to host our neighborhood euchre club at 7.  The gang left by 11, but then we stayed up until after 2 am to watch the rerun of the BlueJackets vs. the Coyotes game that we missed... Jackets won it in a shoot out!  Great game, but late night...

I'm 1/16 Irish and I never miss the chance to celebrate it, so I've got my traditional mustard glazed corned beef brisket chilling in the fridge - it's a 2+ day process, starting with an overnight soak, leading into a day-long crockpot bath and culminating in a quick oven reheat, with glaze, before serving.  We're having it with colcannon (typically potatoes, onions and cabbage, mashed with lots of butter), asparagus and perhaps some soda bread. of my favorite meals of the year!  Leftover peach pie (from pi day) for dessert.

I'm dying to give you an update on the petsitting business, but I'll save that for another blog!  

Have a great day and Erin Go Braugh!!
