Like the Morn in Spring

It’s a beautiful morning here in small-town America. It rained overnight and there’s a heavy fog lingering in the ivy and moss-covered trees in our neighborhood.  As I lingered in bed, I counted the birdsong of our more vocal population — birds —  at least six different calls of trills, cooing and chirps.

On the agenda this loverly 2-day weekend is the Ancient Order of Hibernians 28th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Dogtown, St. Louis, MO. This parade originated in 1984 and it’s a tradition in my part-Irish family to cheer along the parade route.  This will be my husband’s first visit to the parade and I’m looking forward to sharing the experience together.

Later, I hope to de-winterize our smallish property and prep it for the Easter season.  I’ve also got several books on writing that I’m currently working through.  Here’s the list if you’re interested:

Sometime this weekend I also want to work on following some of the advice in The Productive Writer to get myself organized and my writing projects back on track.

Question for my readers: Would you like more posts on what I’m currently writing? As in, the progress? The research?  Please leave comments and let me know, thank you!

In case you wondered, yes today’s blog title post was a direct quote from “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling” by Chauncey Olcott and George Graff, Jr.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Another holiday, another dose of my style of humor — enjoy. 🙂
