Greetings, Dear One! Happy First Monday of Spring! 🌷
Our week and weekend here were good. I worked on Monday. Our youngest daughter and her family arrived Tuesday evening for our annual gatherin' o' the clan on the 17th. Since they weren't going to be able to make it over on Wednesday, our next-to-the-youngest son and his family came over to visit Tuesday evening, as well.

By noon on Wednesday most of the clan had gathered for our traditional feast of corned beef and cabbage with baked potatoes and Emerald Isle Cake. Most of the clan stayed and visited through supper. John and I were tired by the time everyone left, but we greatly enjoyed getting together with everyone...especially after having to cancel it last year due to COVID! 🍀

Thursday and Friday were spent working around the place and running errands. Then, I worked again on Saturday. It was a beautiful first day of spring!
