The other day I was absently walking past the side door of my house when a Thing bobbed at its window, and scared the knitting needles straight out of my hands.
A... birthday balloon?
I have no idea whose birthday warranted its arrival in the great outdoors, but it was caught for the longest time in the air currents swirling through my driveway.
Of course, I had to take pictures.
Once I knew it wasn't a threat (though now that I think of it, anything rushing more birthdays at a person could well be considered as such) I found it pretty endearing.
And then it moved on.
Oh! and while I have you here:
look, some knitting. (I'm onto the toes now, for both socks. go mary go.)
And also: pretty cherry blossoms, courtesy of Hello Sandwich. We're weeks away from cherry blossoms where I live, but Hello Sandwich lives in Japan. Lucky girl.
And now: off I go. Hope you have a lovely day without any scary Birthday monsters in it, and I'll see you tomorrow!
