I am SOOOO ready for winter to be over. SO READY. I need some sunshine, to hear the birds singing and spend way too much time cleaning up my poor neglected yard/gardens. But the cold wind still blows and all I know is that I can look forward to St. Patrick's Day with certainty. Ahh, yes. It's on a Saturday this year, so there will be no need to burn vacation to attend the parade and partake in festivities. And my favorite local brewery has already released it's seasonal Irish red ale. Hurray! I love Boulevard's Irish Ale. I think I have reviewed it, half-assedly, before, but I think I owe a true report on one of my fave's. Perhaps tonight. Ooh! Now there's another thing to look forward to.
