the dogs were in the backyard pacing and whining. i was curious about their strange behavior- these were not the excited whines associated with squirrel/bunny/cat sightings…these were worried whines. so i ventured out back to investigate. and i got a happy surprise: there were 2 hotair balloons being readied for take off right behind our house! there is something magical & dreamy about hot air balloons. i like them.
