I enjoyed biking to work, FINALLY, today after another week of the muggies got me down. Best part was the ride home: joined with a few of the others who will be biking to raise donations for Multiple Sclerosis in Sept. Total miles today was 28...could be better, but it was such a joy nonetheless to get out and celebrate this upper 70's, low humidity day!
I had hoped afterward to catch the hot air balloon launch at our local SpiedieFest & Balloon Rally:
The hot-air balloon launch is my favorite part of the festival. The rest is much like your county fair with BOATLOADS of unhealthy fare!
Sadly, although it seemed like a picture-perfect day for a launch, the wind must have been blowing a bit too much to risk a launch. And since I'm away this weekend I won't get a chance to see any other attempted balloon launch.
I've thought, off and on, how awesome it might be to ride in a hot air balloon someday...
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend filled with all your heart's desires!
For the heckuvit I wanted to share a link to one VERY COOL looking machine that I would just LOVE to try and most likely own:
Play that video and tell me it wouldn't be such a BLAST to ride one of those things...!
