Bless you and yours
As well as the cottage you live in.
May the roof overhead be well thatched
And those inside be well matched.

~Irish Blessing

    What a beautiful saying! Great picture as well 🙂

  2. Beautiful. With this cold weather I am so thankful for my cottage.

    • For cottage with heat!! It’s snowing and cold here in the Chicago area but Monday and Tuesday are supposed to be frigid, mostly below zero. Still, it’s worse other places. Praying for safety for all those in areas where the weather is bad.


  3. That’s a wonderful blessing, it’s great to have a home, specially in winter.

  4. Beautiful Janet. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice composition, Janet!

    • Good morning, Cathy, and thanks for braving the snow and cold to visit. I’m glad you liked the photo. What’s the weather like out there? We’re getting an unusual amount of snow and Monday and Tuesday are going to be frigid. Stay warm and safe.


      • Cathy Ulrich says:

        Good morning to you, Janet. Yes, it’s very cold here, too. We got about 8 inches of snow yesterday and it’s snowing again today. The good news is we’re going skiing Thursday and the mountains are getting even more. Should be awesome! Enjoy your Sunday!

      • I’m jealous. Haven’t been skiing in way too long. But do a black run or two for me, although after this amount of time, maybe in intermediate. 🙂

      • Cathy Ulrich says:

        Will do! Since it’s the first trip of the season, I’ll maybe save the black runs for later in the day! Some of my favorites are on Peak 10 at Breckenridge. We’re also excited that Breck has opened a huge new area of terrain on Peak 6! Should be really fun to explore.

      • I learned to ski at Breckenridge “back in the day.” Lovely place. Worked in Steamboat for two years and loved it here, too. The Chicago area’s better suited for cross-country skiing! 🙂

      • Cathy Ulrich says:

        Yep, not to many mountains there! Since you’re such a Wyoming fan, have you ever skied Jackson Hole? I’ve only been there in the summer.

      • Nope. Only been there in summer.

  6. What a great saying .. a happy new year 🙂

  7. Madhu says:

    Thank you …….and may God hold you in the palm of his hand! I love these Irish blessings 🙂
    Happy New Year Janet!

  8. Janet,
    These were exactly my thoughts as I was grateful for my cottage this morning. I love the picture with this saying.
    Happy New Year to you and yours!

  9. Amy says:

    Beautiful Irish blessing. Thank you, Janet!

  10. M. R. says:

    Oi t’ink oi’ll claim me Oirish blod back … [grin] Lovely, Janet!

    • Top ‘o the mornin’ to ye, Margaret. But don’t stop by today. It’s -15 (F) and feels like -44. Yikes!! Not sure I’ll go out at all today and since I have plenty to do indoors, that works.


What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
