Tightropes, Legos & Househunting: Blogathon Day 27

This week, my family and I watched Nik Wallenda cross the Grand Canyon on a tightrope. My youngest saw the commercial touting the event and declared it family night viewing.

For those that missed it...

Although I was frustrated with all the pre-show (lasting about an hour and a half), it was amazing to watch the actual feat. But also terrifying.

I joked with my mom recently that wherever I am, I imagine a way a character could die in the same situation. Watching Nik Wallenda, my imagination wasn't even challenged. However, I was impressed with myself when I imagined how someone might perish on the Disney monorail.

Couldn't I be one of those writers who imagined how any geographic location could turn into a hot and heavy and romance instead?

But I digress, my daughter was so impressed with Wallenda that the very next day she made a Lego scene to honor him.

So cute that I had to share.

Today, I'm heading to San Francisco. It's crunch time... we need a house. Wish me luck! And let's hope I can quiet my imagination while I'm on the airplane. *eek*

Such a cute picture! I didn't see the actual event on tv but my mom did. She said it was amazing and stressful to watch. Anyway, good luck finding a house. How exciting! I hope you like SF. (:

Oh my gosh!
The Lego Scene is a nice tribute. ^_^ I missed the broadcast. Thanks for sharing it. I don't think I could have stood to watch the whole thing.

Happy house hunting!

Thanks for stopping by, Elise & Krystal Jane. Maybe I should just have my daughter build me a Lego house. It's so crazy expensive out here in San Fran!!

I didn't watch that event. I was out of town. Sounds like a stressful tv night :) California isn't cheap, that's for sure. I wish you luck in your hunt. We'll begin ours in about three months or so. EEK! WRITE ON!
