About Me

My photo
My name is Kaye and I am 58 years old. Unbelievably to me, at my age, I have now just embarked upon my third career - as a History Education Consultant! I love to cross stitch and quilt, especially with my kittens, Furio and Milo "helping" me. I also love to read, I have a passion for history and I have been cooking since I was about 12 - move over Junior Masterchef! So, this blog, which started out as a cross stitch blog sometimes morphs into a reading journal or a history lesson (sorry, I used to be a secondary teacher before I became a publisher and now a consultant) or a post about my cooking mojo. Whatever it is, this blog is alway about me, my family and my life here in Eaglemont, Victoria. I have been happily married for over 30 years to the most wonderful man and we are blessed with three beautiful grown up children.

Up, up and away....


This was the view from my kitchen window this morning....


... I love the idea of hot air balloons and one day I would love to go for a ride in one over the gorgeous Yarra Valley but for today, I am glad that I am flying to Byron Bay in a plane instead.

However, seeing the balloons made me think of a few songs, do you remember these?


 Up, up and away by the 5th Dimension



... and 99 luftballoons by Nena



but, of course, I am leaving on a jet plane, so here is the incomparable John Denver ....


Have a great day everyone, 

hugs,

Oh, what a pretty sight, Kaye! Not sure that I would want to go up in one as I'm afraid of heights...

Those old songs certainly brought back memories :)

Love seeing all those balloons! Hope you have a wonderful trip! (I used to love John Denver, big time!)

So many gallons are a wonderful sight indeed. But for nothing in the world would I enter such a huge basket hanging underneath a huge ballon, lol.
Wishing you a great flight!

I love to see hot air balloons, but not likely to ever go up in one. : ) And I do remember those songs. Enjoy your trip!

Bea said...

That's an impressive sight! I'd love to ride in one as well, in spite of the fact that I'm not crazy about heights.

One day.... it must be a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours! Enjoy your trip to Byron! If you get a chance try and go to the Crystal Castle - it is amazing :o)
Hugs xx

I have never been up in a balloon. I should put that on a list of things to do.
Glad to see I'm not the only Nena fan, I used to love that song.
