This hot air balloon came very close the the house last night.
This is how far away it was when we noticed it. It went right over the house, and we thought it might hit the house…..yikes!! It was fine and we were able to watch it sail so beautifully over the house on a gorgeous Summer day. ( i guess i should say it floated not sailed…) If you want to see a video it is on Facebook.
This Toad entertained Beatles for a bit on the porch. I think he was afraid of it, honestly. Below is Zach’s great photo of the beautiful ugly one. And, why yes, I am wearing gloves to hold him. Salmonella and warts and all that…you know me!
There was some knitting this weekend amid the balloons, toads and cleaning the house. Yes, I had to clean all the wood floors. When the humidity finally dropped, I took advantage of the dew point and washed all the wood floors.
And there was knitting. We went to an outdoor concert (Dennis DeYoung and music of Styx) and I had to bring some knitting. Good music. The younger guitarists had a ton of energy and balanced the very gray Dennis. Above is my go to sock in progress. There was work , too, on my log cabin shawl, and now I’m thinking I want to change it to something else……..So we will say I practiced with the yarn. It is lovely to knit with koigu. Great spring to it.
I’m off to the barn! Then friends are taking us on their boat this afternoon. We live for this weather. Haha Winter, we survived and I think we are thriving. (Despite the rib injury that Fireman is still gingerly nursing)!
