It's sunny in Dublin for the second day in a row! Yippeee!!! So it's been a beautiful weekend here and we've been making the best of it. The past few weekends have been nice, actually. Last Satuday we took Cillian to the beach (see pics) down the road from us...Yesterday Steve and I did the cliff walk around Howth (the area of Dublin where we live...see pics) and today we had a barbecue with Steve's dad, Ruthie, Cillian, Lynn (Steve's other sister) and Johnny (her new baby). We made greek salad, corn on the cob, baked potatoes and shish ka-bobs (also see pics...haha...I thought I'd be like my dad and send pics of food). Everything else is good. I really like my job and I have nine families for now. They're nice people and I've got my work cut out for me, but I think they're all going to be okay. I've also been going to some trainings and seminars and learning about how things work here, and going to court every now and then. Outside of work I've been really busy, going to hot yoga on Tuesday nights and painting class on Thursday nights. I've been painting a little at home, mostly flowers (for me) and skulls (for Steve). I posted a pic of the "gallery" I'm starting on our bedroom wall. Lots more art to come. Besides that, nothing much going on. We usually babysit one or two nights per week and we just finished watching season one of Deadwood. Have any of you seen it? Go to Blockbuster and get it!! It's so good!!! Although the characters have filthy mouths so watch it after the kids go to bed. Hope everyone is enjoying being back in school. Congrats to Mark, Carrie, Jeff and Katie on the new babies! Post some comments and let me know how things are going. I'm planning a trip home in November for about a week so I'll see you all in a few months. xox
