Family time

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

My brother and his family drove from Mexico to NY to see family. They had moved to Mexico 14 years ago and their youngest Alejandra had never met most of the extended family. They have been using my house as home base so my nephew let us use his camper so they had a place to sleep. We had a wonderful family reunion on Saturday. Here is the group of us.



One of my favorites with me and my brothers.



And my very favorite with my granddaughter, two nieces from Mexico and my cousins granddaughter (the littlest one). I never had sisters and just feel so good to have these girls in my life.



Love your family. Spend time, be kind & serve one another. Make no room for regrets. Tomorrow is not promised & today is short.

The Ballons have landed in our neighborhood

Sunday, August 03, 2014

We have an annual Spedie Fest and Balloon Rally in our area the first weekend of August. People come from all over the states to take part. Spedie's are a local favorite in our area and are different types of marinated meat that most people eat as a sandwich. During the weekend the balloons take flight at 6 AM and 6 PM depending on the weather. This morning I was lucky enough to have them fly right into our neighborhood and land. Here are some pictures from my driveway and then just down a block. People came out of the woodwork to see the beautiful site.



I was so glad this guy turned to face me!


And then landed a few houses away.


and then I turned around and a rainbow one was coming down





I hope your Sunday is as beautiful

    emoticon They are beautiful. We did have a balloon rally in the park across the street from us a few yrs. ago over a weekend. The kids went right up to them as they were filling them. What a sight!! i don 't recall the number that took flight but I would guess about 10. Thanks for the beautiful pictures.

    Here in Michigan in Howell which is the next town over from me, we have a balloon festival each year a week long just to celebrate all the wonderful balloons that are in the area. I have never been up in one but I sure would like to give it a try sometime. The cost is like 150.00 a person and I would never go alone so there is 300.00 for a 30 minute ride a little expensive for my taste but it looks like so much fun. Maybe one day I will splurge and just take the flight.

    I look back on my life...so many "at some points"
when the student is ready the teacher will arrive...
Now...
some days I am the student..
some days I am the teacher...
The world is beautiful and full of love..
We need to be seeking it...
Go to the place...spot...were it is....
day by day..
we can do this ..
TOGETHER
