Beastie St Patrick’s Day!

Well, it’s a bit of a weird St Patrick’s Day in Dublin this year. Because of the ongoing Covid-19 containment measures, there’s no parade or St Patrick’s Festival, and the guidelines are to stay in and work from home if we possibly can. So, over the weekend, I brought some stuff home from my studio, and set up a nice work station for myself beside the window. I was quite looking forward to getting stuck in this morning!

However, I forgot that the dreaded virus doesn’t affect Beasties at all. And it turns out that they had other ideas about what we’d be doing today, as you can see.St Patrick's Day Beastie Takeover - CrawCrafts BeastiesBake Off Beastie had prepared treats…

And in case there wasn’t enough cake to go around, some of the others had thoughtfully liberated my stash of Easter eggs.

Then DJ Winter Beastie took to the decks… And cranked the volume up to 11.

Right, that’s enough! How am I ever going to get anything done today? What do you have to say for yourselves?

Awww, you just can’t stay mad at them, can you?

Happy St Patrick’s Day, everybody!

Also, I should mention that some of these Beasties are on the lookout for a new home. Please don’t let this post put you off! They’re usually very well behaved. You can find their profiles here if you fancy your chances as a Beastie wrangler.

  1. This is a hoot! The Drone and I are embarking on social distancing on this dreary St.Patrick’s Day and these photos have really brought the Irish spirit into our house. Well done the Beasties! Always guaranteed to lighten up the atmosphere. The lads at the bar are just the best ever!

    1. I’m glad we could brighten up your St Patrick’s Day, Queen Bee! At least the Beasties were still able to have a parade of sorts. Look after yourselves up there!

  2. This is the BEST St. Patrick’s Day party I’ve ever (virtually) attended! Although I hate to think of all those Beastie hangovers tomorrow. I hope you’ve stocked several bottles of I-beast-profen for their headaches. :))

    1. Heehee! Glad you could join the party, Tammie! And yes, I-beast-profen (ha! πŸ˜‚) and fry-ups all around this morning. Hopefully it’ll be a while before we see another party on that scale! How are you all doing over there?

  3. Ha ha! Love this post. I am glad someone is in a celebratory mood despite the current circumstances. Nobody in my household has any Irish heritage so we don’t celebrate St Paddy’s but I might have to imbibe a stronger-than-tea beverage tonight because these are strange times we find ourselves in.

    1. Yes indeed… I’m sure that beverage was purely for medicinal purposes anyway πŸ˜‰ And the Beasties say thanks for swinging by their St Patrick’s Day party… Everyone gets to be a little bit Irish on the 17th of March! ☘️

    1. Mmmm, that sounds like my kind of party! I hope you enjoyed it, and cheers for dropping in on our St Patrick’s Day celebrations as well! ☘️

  4. What a party. I see that Beasties don’t mind appearing nude when there’s a good party going on. Thanks for the chuckle.

    1. Hahaha! Yes, apparently anything goes when it’s St Patrick’s Day! Although I suspect it might also be an unsubtle hint that I should use this quiet time to make them all some clothes… πŸ˜†
      Anyway, cheers for dropping into our party, Mariss… Hope you had a good St Patrick’s Day yourself and you’re all keeping well down there!

    1. Thanks, Amy! I’m glad someone got to celebrate St Patrick’s Day, at least. Cheers for joining the party! And hope you’re keeping well over there 😊

  5. Leave it to the Beasties to celebrate St. Paddy’s in style! Love the cutting mat dance floor, ha! (among other festivities, Chicago had to skip its customary river-dye, which turns the Chicago river bright green!). Thanks to you and the Beasties for the wooly uplift spirits. Praise their natural immunity!

    1. Hey Shirley! And happy belated St Patrick’s Day to you! I’m sure the wildlife in the Chicago river was grateful for a break from the greening though if nothing else πŸ˜†
      Glad you could join us for our virtual party, anyway, and stay safe over there!

    1. Thanks, Hannah! It wasn’t quite the quiet working day I had planned, but maybe that’s not such a bad thing 😁
      Hope you had a good one yourself, and that you’re staying safe & healthy over there!
