Loose Balloon

In the news today, a mylar balloon became entangled in some electrical wires and blew a transformer, leaving over 6000 SDG&E customers without power for several hours.

Guess what???? That was my neighborhood. We had no power from around 10:00 AM to 7:30 PM.

I had plans to do laundry and iron, and perhaps surf the net between loads. I ended up sorting through items I have in storage bins, dusting, and playing Hotwheels Crashers with my grandson. I think I had a better time doing the things I had not planned to do. I really detest doing laundry and ironing. Playing Hotwheels Crashers was much more fun.

Yesterday's song:
She's Crafty - Beastie Boys - Barbie2be

I love Hotwheels...could play w/them for hours (with or without Turbo)!

I've never really grown up much, have I?

An unexpected pleasure! Delightful.

AKA Alice,
It's a lot easier to play when there's kids involved. Do we ever really grow up???

It was a pleasure! Sometimes I've just gotta stop and smell the flowers, or in this case, stop and play!
