Happy St Patrick's Day

Hi Everybody!

After asking yesterday on my blog if it's winter or spring, we got an answer today - it's snowing again! Spring has deserted us, and everything is white....
Thanks to all who commiserated with my computer problems yesterday. Things seem to be back more or less to normal, although it is still reacting more slowly than usual. I think my computer and I are both showing signs of old age, but as there's no possibility of getting either of us replaced just now, we'll just have to learn to live with it!

I would like to wish all who celebrate it  a happy St Patrick's Day

I have another tag for Joan's challenge at Tag Tuesday, Easter or Spring:



 And as I need some colour other than white I made a hybrid journal page using a photo from Pexels:



 I am fed up with snow photos, so these were taken this day one year ago:
















Have a nice day, keep warm,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  4. Lovely art today as always, I love the heart shaped tree, and I'm glad you showed some blue-sky photos today, we have the same snow here....And I need to get the shopping today, so no chance of just staying home, grrr! Well, the kids will surely love it. Any chance to throw snow balls is a good day for them! Stay warm. hugs, Sarah

  9. Wonderful everything today and so pleased to see a St Patrick's Day piece. My grand mother was Irish and I think I have a lot of her in me. Ireland have won the over all rugby and today they play to see if they have won all their matches-knitting at the ready to watch that on television.

    Love all the bright colours and pleased to see them as we have snow as well. Just walked into town along the seafront and it was horrendous against the wind and snow-better than the pouring rain though.

    Have a great day

    Love Chrissie xx

  10. Your St. Patrick's Day piece made me laugh. With all the snow outside your windows and mine, this is indeed, blarny. :-D And I like your reminder to be grateful. I'm glad I could virtually walk through your town and feel like it is spring.

    Slow computer could be due to a virus or malware. Also the cache needs to be cleaned to remove temporary files no longer needed. I use a couple of free programs.

    Ccleaner to remove all the junk. There are free and paid versions so be sure you select the free: https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/download?source=cpc&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIg8KAvZXz2QIVm7jACh2EIgtEEAAYASABEgJhKvD_BwE

    Malwarebytes to remove malware. Anti-virus programs do no remove malware. Malwarebytes also has a free version. https://www.malwarebytes.com/mwb-download/

    You should also run your anti-virus program.

    Here's to a better weekend and no more snow!

    1. That was the first thing I did. I have a very good anti virus protection, and there is nothing bad on the computer. I think it really is old age....

  12. This winter is crazy, isn't it? I love the tag and the heart tree. Too bad trees don't grow like that! :) Happy St. Patrick's Day to you and I hope your snow melts fast and the colors of spring come back! Hugs-Erika

  13. Wonderful art and photos - loved seeing them all!!! We will be having a few "warm" days (40's) with temps in the 20's at night and then back to snow and cold. Spring is hiding this year!
    Happy St. Patrick's Day.

  14. Happy StPatrick's Day! The tags are beautiful. We need those sunny photos here too, spring is delayed. But it can't be for much longer can it?

  15. Currently snowing here again as I type. Love your tag's and the quote *I am grateful for today* makes me think I should not even mention about the weather and lack of sunshine. Bring on those sunny photographs Valerie they bring lots of warm smiles.
    Happy St. Patrick's day to all that celebrate wishing you a wonderful weekend.

  19. Beautiful tag and I love your whimsical, heart-shaped tree. We have had snow on and off over the last couple of weeks, along with a nasty flu bug. But these things will pass and spring will most definitely come. How welcome she will be!

  20. Wonderful architectural features captured in your photos! The winter has to end soon, just maybe not quite as soon as we would like. Happy St Patty's!

  21. Happy St. Patrick's day to you and lovely tags, one and all. Looks like you have beautiful blue skies now! Love the photos. We're having blue skies, too -- even though it's still cold. They do make it seem warmer (even if it's not!)

  23. I am certainly looking forward to seeing the end of the snow! We went for a walk to get a newspaper today and the snow began to fall again! It was bitterly cold too! Your art and those photos cheered me up! Hugs,Chrisx

  24. Your Tag is sweet and I love the journal page ♥ I can so relate to our computer issues :( I've switched from Google to Firefox and for now I can get on but it's much slower than it should be... like you said about yours...it's old and should be replaced.
