Up, Up And Away

Early yesterday morning I walked out of my house to go to my dear mother's house. As I approached my driveway I saw the most incredible sight - a hot air balloon hovering low above the trees and houses nearby. I quickly ran into my house to get my camera and I began to take pictures. When it was out of site I drove a few blocks away to see where it had gone. There it was, hovering above our little town, just hanging there, suspended in the blue sky. Oh, if only my sweetheart and I were gliding and floating and "chasing our dreams across the sky" in a beautiful balloon!
Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon?
Would you like to glide in my beautiful balloon?
We could float among the stars together, you and I
For we can fly.
We can fly!
Up, up and away,
My beautiful, my beautiful balloon!
The world's a nicer place in my beautiful balloon.
It wears a nicer face in my beautiful balloon.
We can sing a song and sail along the silver sky,
For we can fly.
We can fly!
Up, up and away
My beautiful, my beautiful balloon.
Suspended under a twilight canopy
We'll search the clouds for a star to guide us.
If by some chance you find yourself loving me,
We'll find a cloud to hide us,
We'll keep the moon beside us.
Love is waiting there in my beautiful balloon,
Way up in the air in my beautiful balloon.
If you'll hold my hand,
We'll chase your dream across the sky
For we can fly.
We can fly!
Up, up and away,
My beautiful, my beautiful balloon.

    I enjoyed your blog very much and I too have a rather large and growing collection of Christmas books!

  2. The balloons are beautiful and I so enjoy seeing them. I'm thrilled to find someone blogging from OR. I miss it so. We lived in Corvallis for three years, back in the East now. I followed your link from Daisy Cottage. xoxo

  3. That was a great picture of the balloon above your house - that would be so fun to see! I think it would be exciting to take a rid in a balloon - never been.
