Warning...photo heavy! ;-)
Bet you'll never guess where I was!
It was "International Balloon Fiesta" time in Albuquerque NM
There is just something about seeing the skies light up with all these
wonderful "special shape" balloons.
I just can't get enough of the special shapes.
The balloon with the birds above, was actually 3 sided.
The weather was perfect the day we went.
I'm not that lucky every year.
I even played around with what I call my "Balloon Eclipse" photos.
Oh, I could go on and on...
but as hubs says, they all look just like the photos you took last year!
When I left, the landscapers had started on my yard...
Finishing up what we started last year.
Adding tires around my drive.
It's kinda crazy, but it works with the car pond.
And those tires light up at night.
Here's what it looked like when I got home.
Brand new lawn and topsoil, so we don't fight it another 35 years!
New picnic area with room for a fire pit...
the one that no one assembled while I was gone!
And my partially finished "outhouse".
Not a real one...
This used to be the kids playhouse when they were little.
Now it's just a place to store
my patio furniture in the winter, and provide us
with a good laugh all summer long!
Lots of little things to do yet...
But it's starting to look up around here.
I just love this time of the year.
Now, I'm off to finish up my Island Batik Pumpkin Fest project.
Oh, I never leave home without my sewing machine.
I just need to get it quilted now!
Keep on Stitchin'
