Hot Air Balloons Over Taos

Saturday morning I was at work, where I'd been there all night. Shortly after the sun came up, I stepped outside to get something from my car, and saw the sky was filled with hot air balloons!  They were so beautiful.  Here are a few photos I was able to get of them as they flew over me, and over the building I work in.  The first balloon, the yellow one, was the first one to arrive, passing directly over me, as I stood in the parking lot gawking upward.   It came the closest to me of any, so I got more photos of it than any of the others.

Fall Has Fallen

Yes, autumn is upon us here.  I've piled all the blankets on the bed to stay warm at night, the heat has been turned on, and the cats are sleeping cuddled up in piles again.  Outside there are even more obvious signs of fall that seem to have rather suddenly appeared...  The aspen trees in my neighbors' yard have turned a gorgeous golden orange color, the street in front of my house is full of leaves, and my peek-a-boo view of the mountains shows the tops are covered in snow.

Mom Raps About Foreclosure

I've been trying to find a house to buy for quite a while, and the foreclosure crisis has been of great interest to me.  I just saw this video, which I think does a great job of explaining the situation so many US homeowners have found themselves in recently...    Perhaps I'm lucky I didn't find a house to buy!

Zebbie & Fieldsie Napping

A few minutes ago I looked over and saw this sweet scene, with two of my orange boys, Zebbie and Fieldsie, snuggled up together, snoozing.

Big Fluffy Clouds

Sometimes the clouds around here almost look solid enough to walk upon.  I pulled off the road near Taos to take these photos.  You can see the fall colors from the changing aspen trees in the last photo.
