The electric situation is getting resolved slowly. Today a temp line was installed..around 10:30pm...and the first thing I did was blog. Hmmm..do I have a problem or what? But I can atleast get my pics up and realize that even though this was a July 4th celebration washout...it wasn't a total loss. Jack got ready for camp by setting up his tent, waterproofing it, getting his supplies all together and Addie came and visited for a few hours the other night to test out his home away from home! We picked some black raspberries, played in the kiddie pool, watered flowers (before the pump quit working!), and had a quick picnic in the screen house.
It's amazing how easy it is to put together a picnic...a blanket, some peanut butter and some fresh picked black raspberries...and PawPaw's tent! Throw in a juice box and you have instant party with YaYa!
My hydrangea bush is blooming like crazy. Addie and I had fun putting together some vases of flowers.
Now this makes the flowers look prettier!
Ok, so as the weekend progressed, we were knee deep in trying to get the electrician to call us back, get Jack ready to leave for Scout camp, Church doings that needed done, etc. I was bummed because I missed out on the balloon fest. Gee, I didn't even see one balloon. Until Sunday morning. I heard the distinct noise they make and ran outside to see them coming over the horizon. I was happy that they made a fly over our house as well as a big drop down across the street at our neighbors house. So I feel a bit better about this weekend and not totally missing the balloon races.
I got a wave from the crew as they were directly over my house. Of course I had my camera ready and clicking away. Hope they liked my jammies...thankfully they were far enough away not to notice me without makeup!
I was trying to figure out where these guys were going to land...alot of other folks were too. The balloon followers were lined up on our road thinking they were landing...but the balloonist fooled them! My neighbors have a pool and that would not be the best place to put down that huge balloon.
After dropping that low, the balloonist started to pull it up...maybe someone had to go the "necessary room" for bladder break?
Hey, stay away from those electric wires...I'm having enough trouble with power and somehow I think hitting those would not make for a fun weekend for either of us!
Whew, made it up and over our trees...Bye until next summer!
