an instant of life captured for eternity

Life around here has been extremely hot! We’ve been trying really hard to adjust to the intense heat, but wowzers! It’s proved to be a difficult task, but you can’t blame us we just came back from always rainy always slightly cold Dublin. ┬áThe flowers, the blue skies and the amazing African sunsets make up for the heat.

The heat has not been our only difficulty. ┬áTrying to find a place to rent in Cape Town is near impossible, ┬ámost of these places require a payment of a really nice car to live in a shoe box of a place! ┬áWe finally managed to get a place, but now we are waiting for all the credit checks to clear, it also doesn’t help that we’ve been living in Ireland for the last 4 months. ┬á I’m trying to keep my stress levels down to a minimum, but boy is it getting hard. ┬áI have faith that things will work out and we will be all settled in no time.

^^ We met up with my sister and her family and had a picnic in the shade while staring at this big guy.  We were also right by the para-gliders coming down from Signal Hill.  It seems like fun!
