The Day After...

 Yesterday I felt a bit like the mouse in "If you Give a Mouse a Cookie" by Laura Numeroff.  I paid tribute to the Irish by watching a movie that has Ireland in it: "P.S. I Love You".  I knew I would cry, so I decided that before I would watch it, I'd get the desk cleaned off.  While I was cleaning the desk, I had to use the bathroom.  While I was in the bathroom, I was reminded that the tub and sink needed cleaning.  Then, I remembered the mirrors.  While getting the window cleaner out of the closet, I saw some spray cleaner for stainless appliances, so I cleaned the refrigerator, dishwasher, and range hood.  Then, I looked at the floor.  So, I cleaned the kitchen floor.  Then, I saw the red light on the dishwasher indicating that the dishes were clean, so I emptied the dishwasher.  Back to the mirrors and got them cleaned. Okay, everything is done.  I think I was procrastinating:  even though I absolutely love the movie, it is emotionally draining to me.

My St. Patrick's Day meal was a hit.  This was the first time I had made corned beef and cabbage, and I found a perfect recipe:  Slow Cooker Old World Corned Beef and Vegetables  Really easy...just throw everything in a crockpot and let it cook all day!  The Irish Soda Bread turned out great, and the Irish Creme Pie was the perfect ending! MS was very happy; he loves corned beef & cabbage.  When the boys were younger, I would put green food coloring in their milk and tell them the leprechauns did it.  I kind of forgot about it this year, so MS did his himself.  The only food coloring I had was the gel kind, so it didn't do that great of a job.

 I'm not sure why the color of the wall is that color:  my kitchen walls are "daffodil yellow"!

It can't be Thursday already, can it?  Why is it that breaks seem to go by so fast, but work weeks seem to crawl?  On agenda today: Trip to Lowes for fluorescent bathroom light and some kind of glue to put the towel rack holder back up.  (Have I mentioned our 60's bathroom complete with pink tile?)  And, that weed garden is waiting for me!  Hope everybody has a great Thursday!


  1. Green milk! It never even dawned on me. Our cooks at school have served green mashed potatoes and green spaghetti before. (Wow, the kids hate that!) It cracks me up!

  2. I usually do a drop of green food coloring in the bottom of the boys' cereal bowls before adding the cereal. Then when they add the milk...viola! The Leprechauns strike again!

  3. Love the green milk idea! I love corned beef and cabbage but did not cook it this year. I did pick up a turkey rueben for lunch though. :0
    I loved PS. I love you...and bawled like a baby through it all.
    Hey, sounds like you have cleaning ADD just like me!!!!
