Roses and hearts seem made for each other! I have valentines that I am making too and will be posting them here soon and over on Etsy as soon as I figure that out! So even though Christmas is just over and the weather has been gray the valentines are quite cheering.
A neighbor brought tea yesterday and I discovered that true Irish tea is brewed much stronger than American tea. It turns out that this beautiful young woman is from exactly the part of Ireland that I have been trying to describe in my unfinished novel, A Priest Forever According to Melchisadech: a Story of the Irish Famine and the Holocaust.
This feels like a blessing that I am truly supposed to finish this book after all. My niece and my sister both want me to do so. I am excited and happy.
