Happy St. Patrick's /NCAA tourny day!

It's the end of the work week for me, and It was punctuated with a lovely seventy degree day and the beginning of the NCAA tournament. I left school immediately, with the windowsn rolled down,headed for Granny and Pepaws to watch the game. It was great to see them as usual, and I was pleased to have that feeling of total comfort that is always present when I'm with them. Barry came over in his cute game day tie( and green Huntington pin), to join in the festivities. We watched the Cats play an ugly first half against Princeton, with most of the work coming from Harrelson and Miller. Pepbaw switched back and forth between our game and the Louisville vs. Morehead state game. It was a barn burner, as most of the games were today with Morehead State pulling out the win.
We made green beer to celebrate St. Patrick's day! Pepaw really enjoyed those and told us about the celebrations they use to go watch Granny's school, St. Lawrence, put on when they were little. I would love to see a picture of Granny dancing and Irish jig! :)
Leaving Granny and Pepaw's, Barry and I were both starving but not ready to eat a full we decided to go try out Orange Leaf for the first time! It was completely delicious and I tried about 7 different flavors in my big bowl of yummy! It was a super fun atmosphere because they were giving 25% off to anyone wearing green. All these families and kiddos were walking in decked out in St. Patrick's day gear (shamrock antenna headbands and all).
We arrived home to see that the first spring flower of the year has bloomed in our yard! I have the day off tomorrow and hope to be out getting some yard work done. This is such a wonderful time of the year! Blessings, blessings everywhere!
