Robbie Burns Day!

Robbie Burns Day!
Today is Robbie Burns Day. Come on over for a wee dram!

Oat biscuits and a cheddar whiskey spread (recipe from the Canadian Living Cookbook) to celebrate. All of this is sitting on a kilt my mom made for me nearly forty years ago. The rose pin belonged to my grandmother. Tray, shot glasses and bowl all from the second-hand store!!!

Here is to Scotland's favourite son! And, here is a bit of one of his poems, To A Mouse. It is one of my favourites.

Happy Robbie Burns Day everyone!

Wee, sleekit, cow'rin, tim'rous beastie,
O, what a panic's in thy breastie!
Thou need na start awa sae hasty
Wi bickering brattle!
I wad be laith to rin an' chase thee,
Wi' murdering pattle.

I'm truly sorry man's dominion
Has broken Nature's social union,
An' justifies that ill opinion
Which makes thee startle
At me, thy poor, earth born companion
An' fellow mortal!
