This week...

-  There have been some pretty awesome clouds here every morning this past week.  Not fond of the humidity that came with them but I will excuse that this time being that it helps the fire situations in our state.  The orange and gold skies are so very pretty.  But you quickly remember that it is there only because there is smoke in the air from a fire still burning in our portion of the state.

-  The hot air balloons are here in town again.  The  Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic is going on until Sunday.  We caught one going over our house on Monday before the event started.  Still debating if there will be an early morning wake up call tomorrow just to go see them. 

-  I'm heading off to the bookstore early this morning to pick up a book that I asked to be held back for me.  I just could not resist having a copy for myself after checking it out at the library and going through it.  The hats are just too cute!  Everyone in the house has put in their requests for their new hat this winter.  I guess I won't be bored with making everyones new hats.




  1. Such pretty cloud formations. I hope they are able to get the fires under control soon. The book looks neat. I pulled it up online; the hats are all super cute, but I especially liked the chicken and the fox. What are you working on in your crochet? Is it going to be a baby blanket? I love the colors, so bright and cheerful. Have a wonderful weekend. Heather

    1. I think I fixed the reply feature (I hope). Thank you for letting me know, I appreciate it. :-)

  2. The shots of the sky are stunning. And those balloons!

  3. How does your part of the state endure so many fires year to year? The skies are beautiful and so is the hot air balloon. Have you ever ridden in one? Have fun with your hat creations!

  4. Seeing that balloon must have been so neat. We've had some wonderful skies here too lately.

  5. Awesome skies! Love the colors but sending wishes the fires get out soon. Seems like this has been an early and really bad fire season...

    That book looks fun, such a cute hat on the cover. I can't wait to see which ones you crank out for your family.

  6. That third shot of the clouds is awesome! I love seeing hot air balloons and I can't wait to see the kind of hats you make.
