an instant of life captured for eternity

Life lately has been a whirlwind of adventure. ¬†Seriously guys, its been kind of exhausting, but worth it, I’ve been having muscle pains in places I didn’t know muscles could even be at?! Its been all cliff walks, forest hikes and running to catch buses around here. ¬†We actually crossed a highway and trekked up the most insane hill to get to Ticknock forest. ¬†I was completely tired when I got to the parking lot of the hike entrance, but even the walk up was great we got to see the Irish sheep that’s always shown in movies and saw some amazing farms. ¬†One of the things I love about Ireland is, how different every cliff walk or hike can be, even though they are all just a quick train ride apart. ¬†The best part of our trip? We finally got to see snow! We did walk up a mountain to find it, but being hit in the face by soft snowflakes was worth all the trouble.

Adventuring around Dublin is wonderful you get to see so much, and still feel like there is way more to do.   Ireland is filled with so much sunshine, life, happiness, cloudiness, rain, snow and all sorts of wonder.  Being kept on your toes is good for the soul!

I feel like I’ve become a way happier person in the last month, being baptised, going to church, praying, reading scriptures has made me feel refreshed and ready for everything, but all that is for another post!

an instant of life captured for eternity

Weekend are made for adventures, wait any time is a great time for adventures. ¬†We have been in full adventures, get our fun on mode lately. ¬†Trying to tourist the life out of our city before we leave, its been dandy to say the least. ¬†From strawberry picking on the hottest day in the world to rowing on a dam, relaxing at home and Carl studying away a storm. ¬†Ordinary days are the ones you remember. ¬†Its all about making memories and having fun along the way and photos captures the moments you don’t want to forget.

Candles

^^ We had such an intense thunderstorm here on Friday.  The sky was blue and wonderful on one side and super ominous on the other, and suddenly it was a ridiculous thunderstorm.  It knocked the whole areas electricity out and started a wildfire.

Garden Roses

^^ The garden roses are really just showing off now.  These guys and the lilies are beautifying the front verandah to the max.

^^ Spray painting the wooden ladder.  This photo is deceiving, I actually ended up spray painting the ladder.  Go ME!

sad ball

^^ I was so shocked to see someone else playing sad ball.  Sad ball is my thing! What is sad ball? Its when you end up playing with a ball all by yourself, while looking super goth/emo with a sad, sulky face.  This guy was playing sad ball hard.

Rowing

^^ a relaxing row.  Well it was relaxing when I was not rowing.

^^ Walks around parks.  This park is filled with evil ducks.  They will chase you down and do odd duck things to you.  Beware.

Strawberry picking

^^ Strawberry picking. Boy, it sure was hot. ¬†I mean really hot. ¬†I felt like passing out and just becoming a strawberry myself. ¬†I didn’t. ¬†I’m still human. ¬†Don’t worry.

^^ Carl wants me to do a segment on my blog all about the photos he takes of me and giant trees.  I told him  I will call it bigotry/biggatree.  I can be so punny sometimes.

Olives

^^ yummy olives spotted.  None purchased.

Vegan feast

^^ Vegan feast aka a date worthy of a thousand stars.  Dates at home can be just what the Dr ordered.
