Balloon Fiesta

| | Comments (3)
4:38.  It was actually a little earlier than I needed to be up (alarm was set for 5am).  But that's when I woke up.  So got up and drove into the city, and it was still completely dark.

But the balloon people were arriving, as were the spectators.

About 6:25 they got into full swing.  By 7:30 they were floating in all directions above Canberra.

The only thing that could have made the morning better would have been some sunshine.  But I still went overboard with photos!  Next year I plan to go up in one :)

Bird in the House

| | Comments (0)
There's a bird in the house.

This one.

Sparrow
I have no idea where it is.  I tried to let it out this morning but after I'd opened the door I turned around and haven't seen it since.  I know it's here because it's pooped all over the tv.  And it ate the seed I left out for it on the kitchen bench.  But I still can't find it.  Hoping it'll wake up in the morning and be more active so I can find it.

Actually this was the second bird in the house today!  The other one I did manage to catch, peer at for a while, the let go outside.  But the second one had a lot more energy and wasn't wanting to be caught...

So that takes us up to four birds that our fireplace has caught..
