Hello All;
I sent my box today, priority mail but just realized that I went to the Post Office rather than on line and did not get a confirmation number. I have very little faith in them anyway so I am not concerned. If by some chance it does not make it, I can send another. diene

Hi ladies -
I tried to get mailing info for everyone who signed up for this swap, but less then half sent theirs.
Look on your pals members page to get an e-mail addy.
Hopefully, one will be available.

Diene - I haven't received your box yet, but I think it is because less than half the HWY's into Iowa are currently closed do to the storm. I will post as soon as it arrives.

Boy, some of you gals are on the ball!

Have a great weekend,
Tina

i too have been trying to get my partners

her page has no info---i have a very nice
package ready to go and would like to exchange
with someone---if anyone else is having trouble
with their partner i'd be willing to send out to them-
and if in the end i do get the info from pattex i will
hold up the end of the bargain and send out to her
as well...moonphase perhaps you may be interested
seeings you are having trouble getting your partners
info..??---this is my first time and i didn't want to
start any trouble by changing any rules---let me know
if its a problem....st. pattys day is coming and i love
getting/sending mail....thanks cheri karras

First - My deepest condoences to you Shirley. I am so sorry to hear of your fathers passing. God be with you dear.

sweetkitten - Hope all is better your way.

cheri and moonphase - please send to each other.
Both of your pals are new, and maybe having some problems navigaing this site. It can be tricky when you aren't use to it.

If they happen to appear, they can send to each other.

diene - I received your lovely box today.

2 candy bars - yummy (one is already gone:-))
an adoreable little garden statue with a little fella :-) pearing out of a log
a mini stepping stone that says sow seeds of love
a green liitle pot of peppermint jelliebeans ( a pot o' gold:-))
2 packets of seeds zinnias and sweet williams
a very nice card!
all of the gifts were wrapped and shmrocks were sprinkled all over the prezzies :-)
there was something else in the bottom of the box that I am sad to report didn't survive the trip. It looked to be a lattice type ceramic heart box maybe????
I did this from memory. The box is upstairs, so I hope I haven't forgotten anything.Thank you diene for a great box!

sweetkitten, I am so glad you got the box okay, I have horrors of boxes being delivered to next door neighbors or next state neighbors, lol!! I was worried about the bamboo as well, I got myself one of those sets too, got a bamboo a couple of months ago and ever since then I have been hooked on them, figured they are called Lucky so it kinda goes with Luck o' the irish, right? glad your children had some fun with it too:)

Annette and Cheri - Have you two been able to get in contact with each other yet?

Rosie - Sounds like you are going to be sending out a treasure of a box!

Shirley - What a lovely box you received. Hope it brightened your day some. I know these days are long, but they will get better. I promise. The missing part will never go away, but the hurt will get more tolerable as time goes on. I know, sounds so full of malarky, but it is true.
I still miss both my parents, and some days are worse than others, but for the most part, healing is what I feel.
They want life to go on for us. So, that is what we have to do.
Sending gentle hugs your way.

Hello All;
I have this lovely book that a friend gave me years ago called "Irish Blessings" so I thought I would share one a day for the rest of the month.
"God needed laughter in the world,
So he made the Irish race,
For they can meet life with a smile
And turn a happy face"

Hope everyone has a 'happy face' today!! diene

Nancy, I am picturing you stalking your postman in my mind and it is very funny. Go for it!

I want to thank you for a lot of cool and fun gifts. Some of them I can't WAIT to wear to school!!! First of all there is the HUGE green and white beaded necklace with a flag that has a shamrock on it, another big flag that has Irish written on it, 2 big shamrocks, plus at the bottom a humongous green shamrock that turns on and lights up psychedelic-like. WooHoo!!! It will drive the kids bonkers. I can't wait! HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!! Then there is a green pin that lights up with the words Happy St. Patrick's Day written on it. And another pin that if you hold it one way the leprechaun is smiling holding out a foamy beer, hold it another way and he is drinking the beer, and hold it aNOTher way, and he is frowning 'cuz the beer is all gone. :((( These are all way too fun and cute. Then there is the cutest little green teddy bear that I will take with me to school, too. He is holding a big shamrock. It is just darling. I bet he will be passed around an cuddled a lot. In addition to all of this, Nancy also sent a black-eyed Susan vine and a forget-me-not grow kit. In each little box, is a tiny terra cotta planter, a soil pellet that you add water to, and the seeds that you plant. I will start these tonight, Nancy, and will see what happens. How fun! BTW, I love BOTH of those plants, too!!! I just had to laugh out loud when I saw the seeds that you sent--green envy zinnia and bells of Ireland. How clever of you. When you get your box, you will see why I laughed. AND why I think you are so "clever." LOL The other gift included in this wonderful box is a Hanging Butterfly Garden. This will be a lot of fun to try, too. The box has an 8" diameter hanging basket, coconut potting soil that you add water to, and seeds for flowers that butterflies love. Nancy, what a grand idea. I will be putting this together in the next few days, too. Thank you so much for all of the great, and fun, and wonderful gifts. There is so much enjoyment in this box, and I will be spreading this fun around, too. Nancy, you are the best!!! Many, many thanks, Mary Ellen

Wish for today:
" May you always have these blessings....
A soft breeze when summer comes-
A warm fireside in winter-
And always - the warm, soft smile of a friend."

Today is my little sister's birthday and I remember how excited I was when she was born. I have never regretted having her in my life.
Tonight the local flower show opens and I volunteer to help with the Gala event. It is less crowded than the other days and they have free food. Usually you are able to talk to interesting people like the Governor's wife and most of the big landscapers and growers in the area. I have been doing this for many years and while it is subzero weather (and the facility is barely heated) I always enjoy the event. This year's theme is "Flowers Around the World" so I will report back on anything exciting they introduce. Have a wonderful day. diene

Michelle- your package went out today:

DC # 0304 3490 0001 1790 4003

And when I got back from town today, yours was hanging on my mailbox!

Wonderful long-neck watering can (how'd you know I needed one of these? I'm forever slopping water all over the place with the tupperware cup!)

Bells of Ireland & Zinnia Green Envy seeds, and Birdhouse gourds- VERY good! I wanted to try the BoI again this year- had kinda lousy luck with them last year. Green Envy will ALWAYS have a home in my yard- this year I think I'll mix them with the purple, white and yellows, and my son will def LOVE the gourds!
EARRINGS!
SOCKS!
HUMMER Feeder! I haven't got one yet, and def need one of these when they all come around this year in all my red spaces!
St. Patty's Pin & Poem- Thank you for the lovely thoughts!
(doing this from memory at work now, so if I've forgotten anything, please forgive!)
I loved that card- Flip Flops! Neat.
Little Jam Jars will find a home right here at work for my toast!
New gloves- can't go wrong there!
A most excellent gift-box- perfect! THANK YOU!!!

hello tina
those glasses are deffinantly me, how did you know?
I'm happy you got your box so fast.
If you have not grown the gourds before, it is fun to grow them on a (sturdy) trellis or fence.
last year I trained mine up over my chicken run, and it was soooo cool to walk out and have them hanging over my head, and they come out very round and symetrical when they are hanging.
glad you enjoyed the box

Well, I got my box today!!!!! Thank you so much Sue! There was a wonderful bath basket and green shell soaps, which matches perfectly for the guest bathroom. A little basket filled with goodies for my daughter, green hair ties, shamrock shoe laces, shamrock garland, and a bunch of stickers which she has already plastered all over her shirt ; ) A book about Irish Traditions, which looks very cool. A magnetic notepad, and a journal which is perfect because I was just looking for one today and didn't buy one ; ) Some garden gloves, photo book, a sweet little garden bag, a cute little Irish notepad with Irish sayings and an Irish blessing plaque. If that wasn't enough, she also included all kinds of seeds that I cannot wait to plant like Bells of Ireland (of course).

Wow, thank you so much Sue....I hope you enjoy your box as much as I do.

Thanks to our wonderful hostess for putting this together!!

Hello All;
I keep forgetting to put in a wish a day but maybe a wish when I remember will be more accurate.
"Here's wishing you the tops o' life
Without a single tumble
Here's wishing you the smiles o' life
And not a single grumble
Here's wishing you the best o' life
And not a flaw about it
Here's wishing you all the joy in life
And not a day without it."

Laura,
I wish I would of wrote everything down I sent. I know I also included St. Patrick's Day stickers, and St. Patrick's Day napkins, bookmark. I swore I also included a green windcatcher?
Did it look as though someone rummaged through it?

I had my fingers crossed that the glass shamrock suncatcher wouldn't break. I'm glad it didn't.

Sounds like everyone is receiving great St. Patrick's Day surprises!

Diene - I LOVE your daily posts! Oh, I also wanted to say thank you for the sugar scrub! I love it. I should make a list over everything before I post so I don't forget anything! I just loved your gifts!
Your box is going out the first of the week!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed yours :-)

Have a great week!

Deb~
The sun catcher is my Fav.. I have to be honest.. It actually looks like it might have been damaged in route.. It was still perfect on the inside.. There was stickers stuck on the inside of the box, I just thought that you did it.. I mean not many, a few..
I love my box.. Also wanted to tell you that I forgot to put on the card, that I will send you purple oxalis triangularis when I get it in the spring.. 10 bulbs yipeee.. I can't wait to get them so I will send it when I get them..

Laura,
Hmmm? That's strange.. Someone had to of opened the box, and re-taped it when it went to the wrong address. That was a new priority box and I didn't stick any stickers on the inside. I sent a new page of shiny shamrock stickers still in the package. I also included some St. Patty's day napkins with the box. And I swore I added a green windcatcher. I need your complete zipcode so this doesn't happen again. I'm glad the box made it to you with an incomplete zip.

I've been looking for purple oxalis, thanks Laura! ;)

Hello All;
I apologize for being derelict in my duties to provide an Irish saying but we Irish are known to forget!!
Anyway, how about a prayer?

" You've blessed me with friends
and laughter and fun
With rain that's as soft
as the light from the sun---
You've blessed me with stars
to brighten each night
You've given me help
to know wrong from right---
You've given me so much
please, Lord give me too,
A heart that is always
Grateful to you.

Rather nice thought. Have a wonderful week everyone. Slanche' diene

Don had new surgery today and he is in a cast from the tip of his fingers to his elbow. Been a crazy 2 weeks, here is hoping things level off.

Thank God for the beautiful weather we have been having, 75 today!

"To Wish you the top o' the morning
The best that any day sends
to wish you the cheer at noontime
That comes with the thought of friends--
And when the evening shadows
Fall lengthening o'er the way,
To wish you the heart's contentment
That comes with a perfect day."

I got your box! Opened the box to see great St. Patrick's Day napkins - those will come in handy! Ghiradelli chocolate squares (hiding from DD) A leprecaun garden statue and a shamrock garden stake. Some neat water jewels, going to have to look into that! A fairy garden stake, a really cute gnome on a rock and a beautiful wind bell with a wonderful deep sound. And seeds! ! sweatpeas, mixed chartreuse and purple flowers and pink fuzzy bean - one of my most wanted!

Everything was so perfect and I love it so much.

Thanks a lot!

A string of Shamrock garland, a sheet of festive window clings, suet for the irish birds!!, a dragonfly window flag, Cappuccino, peat pots and clover seeds. What fun I will have with all of these.

Just received this in my email, it sounds yummy! It's for the slow cooker (which I love using, it gives you lots of extra time to do other things)

1-2 lbs stew beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup cut carrots
1/2 cup cut celery
1 can mushrooms
1 tbsp flour
1 envelope onion soup mix
1 can beef or chicken stock
1 can stewed tomatoes
Brown stew beef with onions and a bit of flour. Put carrots, celery, mushrooms, garlic to taste in crock pot, add browned beef and mushrooms on top. Add about 2 cups of stock, beef or chicken, and a can of stewed tomatoes. I also like to add an envelope of onion soup mix at this point. Season to taste, I like to use sea salt and fresh ground pepper, oregano, sage and bay.
Cook on high first two hours, then low for 4-6. Serve over mashed potatoes.

The day is finally here and all our plans have been postponed or cancelled due to Mother Nature. Oh well, it is still a great day to be Irish.
Here are our final thoughts

"May the lilt of Irish laughter
Lighten every load,
May the mist of Irish magic
Shorten every road,
May you taste the sweetest pleasures
That fortune ere bestowed,
And may all your friends remember
All the favors you are owed."

And the final and most important wish for everyone

"May you be half an hour in heaven
Before the devil knows you're dead."

Have a great day. diene
