In the Kitchen
A Pause . . . for Fun

A Close One

Last Sunday, as I was heading back into my driveway after a run, I could see a hot air balloon way off in the distance.

I could tell it was one of two particular balloons that frequently fly the skies over my neighborhood.

And I went inside to get some water.

Then, I could hear the whooooosh of the balloon, so I knew it was getting closer.  I grabbed my phone and went outside.

It was moving fast!

Closer.

Faster.

And even closer.

Until it was right over my head.

So close that I was conversing with the people IN the balloon!  (They were much amused with my picture-taking and Jenny's wild barking.)

I feared for my trees.  And my roof.

But they sailed right on by.

That was fun!
