This evening, after a very busy day at the park, my kids and I went to water the community garden.  Boy, were we in for a treat!  Lo and behold, there were some hot air balloons being set up for flight in Whittier Park, right next to our community garden patch.  Instead of helping me water, the children decided to go check out the hot air balloons. 

Well,  they had a prime seat.  I wish I had my camera…I’m sure it’s a moment in time that they will never forget (and nor will I ;).  They sat as close as they could safely be, right beside the hot air balloon that was slowly being filled and slowly raised up.  The whole process probably took about half an hour (I managed to water and plant a few last minute seeds while this was taking place).   They actually got to see people climb into the basket and wave “aurevoir” to them as the hot air balloon slowly ascended into the sky. 

What a beautiful evening!


It’s Friday!  Finally! This weekend, I’m hoping to have a go at my gardens (the one in my yard and the community garden patch), drive out to the country to visit my friend who recently got a number of chicks (as in chickens LOL) and then on Monday afternoon, we are hoping to head out to Tinkertown with my kids and some our friends.

Oh, and one of the members of the Winnipeg Etsy Team is having a garage sale which I am hoping to check out tomorrow morning.  Not that I need any more yarn, but perhaps I could sneak some into the house without my husband noticing? LOL  We’ll see.
