I'm Up, Up and Away
But, not in a hot air balloon. This photo was taken one Sunday morning. It is highly unusual to see this many hot air balloons at one time. It was around Easter. Many tourists willing to pay the bucks to have
this experience. For me, just photographing it is enough.
However, I am going up, up and away on Wednesday but, in the blue skies of United. Instead of driving the fourteen hours, it seemed way more sensible this trip to use Frequent Flyer miles and be there in two.
Off I go for several weeks. Returning just in time for the arrival of new tenants for the guest house and the rainy season. Two good things.
The weather here has been magnificent. Yesterday it barely hit 80F and is in the low 50's at night. Sleeping with the doors open and having them open all day to enjoy the fresh air and breezes is a delight.
So, the guest house is rented. All the projects are over. I've had a couple additions of some new furnishings in my house and all is well with the world. The gardens are a profusion of flowers, to put it mildly.
Now, off to Texas to enjoy walking the beach in Galveston. Eating yummy seafood. Visiting with dear friends and family in Galveston and Houston. Experiencing my first granddaughter's graduation from college along with my youngest daughter Julie graduating from college as well! It is going to be a rip roaring good time. Old friends I haven't seen since the 80's have contacted me and while I'm in Kingwood, we hope to gather together with other friends to catch up on the last 30 years. OH MY.
I'll need to return to San Miguel to rest up from all the fun and frivolity. As I sit here writing, the church bells are pealing. One of my favorite sounds on this peaceful day.
Hope wherever you are and whatever you are doing, it is peaceful, beautiful weather and happiness in your life as well.
