Up, Up And Away

"Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon?
Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon?
We could float among the stars together, you and I
For we can fly we can fly
Up, up and away
My beautiful, my beautiful balloon"

This song by the Fifth Dimension ran through our heads this morning as we traversed on our early morning walk through the green belt. There was that 'swoooosh' sound of the hot air traveling into the balloon as it floated over our heads. Quick! Grab the phone and turn on the camera before it sails away! Butter fingers--have to take off the security toggle; now, aim and shoot! We watched as the balloon went on its merry way. Then there was another 'swooosh' overhead and a second balloon appeared through the trees as it continued on its journey! What a magical sight.

What is that delightful smell? Ahhhh, sweet smell of bakery goods! You know that smell that waves across your nostrils as you try to avoid the temptation. But, somehow, our foot steps led us directly to the doorway of our local bakery. We ordered jalapeno cheese sausage kolaches to go and out the door we headed home to a pot of coffee that would be iced.


  1. Too funny you should mention kolaches. My friend who moved here from Houston a few years ago was just asking about a recipe for kolaches. Yum! Can we have those on Thursday?

  2. Sure, go ahead and make my mouth water.
