St. Patrick's Day Weekend

StPatrickWhat a nice weekend. The weather was really nice all weekend. We were off both Saturday & Sunday so what more can you want? :)

Yesterday, Saturday, I spent some time in the yard, working on an area in the front part of the house where I need to dig up some vines and clear up some old brush and stuff like that. Did that for about 2 1/2 hours and around 3pm we went to Two Steps for St. Patrick's Day. Met up with some friends and stayed there till about 9pm. Had fun hanging out eating (Mike had shepherds pie, I had a corned beef sandwich with swiss cheese and thousand island dressing) and drinking (Mike had Harp & Guiness and I had Magner's Cider) Here is a picture of me if you want to see.

Today we slept in and then went for a 5 mile walk around town. The weather was perfect, not too cold, not too hot. Stopped at TK's for lunch and then continued on home, a little more than a mile. So a little more than 6 miles all in all. Now we are home and will catch up on our recorded TV shows in a bit. I think I will treat myself with a Magnum ice cream in a minute. Yumm. :)

Mail update: No letters have gone out. Still owe replies/received letters from: Jessica/DE, Kimber/Halifax.

I'm thinking that your corned beef is not the same as ours otherwise that is the weirdest sandwich i've ever heard of...and also it'd be really weird to have a corned beef sandwich for dinner here...so i'm kind of thinking it must be something else....i might have to google it...

Jo, I think we have had this discussion in previous years. I googled it and this is what I came up with
It says that what they call corned beef here in the US/Canada you call salt beef? It's basically sliced meat. You can get it on a sandwich with cheese like I had or a lot of times they serve it as a meal with potatoes, cabbage and some other type of vegetable like carrots.
