happy st patrick’s day

We had Irish soda bread buns for breakfast, but we haven’t found any four-leaf clovers yet. In honor of today, I looked through some of our Ireland vacation pictures from a couple years ago. We made it to Dublin the morning after St Patrick’s Day, so we barely missed the greenest holiday in the greenest country. Many fond memories were made on this trip. Here are some pictures of us in front of the Irish Sea, the garden at the Dublin Castle, standing on a bridge overlooking Dublin, and St Patrick’s Cathedral. Don’t forget to wear your green!

trip to enchanted rock

Last weekend, we took an adventure day to go climb up Enchanted Rock. We went all the way up to the top. I was a little terrified coming back down, but we made it round trip in one piece!

It was a nice, sunny day, with a little bit of chill in the wind. We were glad we had long sleeves when we got to the summit. The wind up there was cold on our ears.

When you are this far away, you think, oh it doesn’t look that steep. Extremely deceiving. Like a stair stepper times a hundred, plus the added danger of falling off the side.

We took a different route home and stopped for some bbq. The meat here is good, but they don’t have pickles on the side. Instead they have jalepenos. Just in case pickles with your bbq is a deciding factor.

We made it home in the afternoon, and then took a nice nap. All that danger and sandwiches made us sleepy.

It seems like I always get a bad cold right around this time of year, every year. I forget how much of a bummer it is to have a cold.

So I’ve been drinking tea, and trying to work on a quilt. I also forgot how much math is involved in quilt making, and how hard it is to do math when your head is fuzzy.
