At Amazon for St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favourite holidays. I think of my Grandmother and her sisters, my great Aunts. Each of them came here to Canada from Ireland, as children and young women. They didn’t come together. Each came in different times and in different ways. They endured hardships, worked hard and built their own lives here. My Great Aunt Alice was the one who told me about Ireland and what she remembered and loved most about her home land.

BlogThings for St. Patrick’s Day


You Are A Fig Tree


You are very independent and strong minded.

A hard worker when you want to be, you play hard too.

You are honest and loyal. You hate contradiction or arguments.

You love life, and you live for your friends, children, and animals.

A great sense of humor, artistic talent, and intelligence are all gifts you possess.


Your Shamrock Says You Are Alert


You have a logical mind, and you pay a lot of attention to details. You are very organized.

Sometimes you find thinking creatively to be a challenge. You prefer to deal with the facts at hand.

You don’t really consider yourself a lucky person. In your view, people create their own luck.

You are traditional, easy going, and appreciative of the simple things in life.


You Are Teal Green


You are a one of a kind, original person. There’s no one even close to being like you.

Expressive and creative, you have a knack for making the impossible possible.

While you are a bit offbeat, you don’t scare people away with your quirks.

Your warm personality nicely counteracts and strange habits you may have.
