Now, I usually post these on the 13th or 14th…but I waited until the 17th for this one. You see, Mr. C is an Irishman and we all know that the 17th, St. Patrick’s Day, is a special day for the Irish.
When I saw that Mr. C signed up for the crafting challenge, I was a wee bit perplexed. Probably because he’s a dad and stuff…and what kind of crafts are you supposed to make for dads, you know?
But, most guys like food (generally speaking), so I figured it was a safe bet. I decided early on in the game to make St. Patrick’s Day food…but I needed to browse Pinterest a bit first.
Eventually I came across the idea of truffles. I liked it. They’re fun but also kind of a treat.
Now, we’re all Catholic up in here, so I was doubly-lucky that St. Paddy’s day was on a Sunday…just in case anyone gave up chocolate for Lent. 😉
This was fun. I actually got lost in their winding subdivision, called their college-aged son, and played my first-ever game of ding-dong-ditch with my adrenaline all high and what not.
I delivered Sunday morning figuring they’d be at church. Ha HA! Sneaky, sneaky bear!
I was alerted Sunday evening that the package had been discovered by this lovely poem by Mr. C:
When out on the lawn I heard such a clatter,
I went to the porch to see what was the matter–
And what did I see?
A pot of gold
a Polish leprechaun
left for me!
What was inside was better than gold,
I let out a cry that I couldn’t muffles.
Why it was a pot full of chocolate truffles
With a twinkle of an eye
two lovely lasses
pushed me clean out of sight….
The poem continues, but I shall end this post of said Irish lasses eating chocolate.
Successful crafting ftw!
