Happy St. Patti's Day!

The morning started off right! Some really nice person in the office brought in green cupcakes and made sure that we took one right away before the day wore on. Most of us had them for breakfast and they were delightful. I think cupcakes are such happy food. It is hard to be in a bad mood while you are eating a cupcake.

The rest of the day was way busy. I ended up working late and got home late for dinner. I had put the corned beef in the crockpot first thing this morning so I was ravenous by the time I got home. Tuesdays are our choir night, but I got home so late that the evening was not coming together right. We ended up not going to choir. As we thought about it, it is probably smart to stay in as it is a drinking night. We are usually coming home on the freeway which would probably be a bit dangerous tonight.

I am really tired from the long day, but glad for the extra evening. I am going to stitch in a few minutes, but thought I would play for a while on my blog. It is sort of fun to pick out new backgrounds and play around with all of the fonts and colors.

I got to stitch for an hour in my car today at lunch. It was so peaceful and I got a lot done. I had to change out my needle because the one that came with the kit was already sticky. It just feels so icky to me when they get like that. My very favorite needles are John James Platinum needles. They last a long time before they start to turn stickly and they just glide through the fabric. It is hard to stitch with anything else.

The corned beef was delicious. When DH got home he added carrots and potatoes to the crockpot. I do not like cooked cabbage, so we skipped that. But it was such a wonderful dinner. Everytime I use my crockpot, I always have the intention of using it more. It makes such wonderful dinners with limited work. I really do need to pull it out more.

I have to admit we enjoyed our corned beef and cabbage tonight, too. YUM!!! I agree that I should pull out my crockpot more often. It's so nice having the main meal cooked at the end of the day. Happy St. Patti's Day!
