That's My World - Our Deck

Time to share our worlds! This marvelous meme is hosted each week by Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Ivar, Fishing Guy and Louise! Click here to find the directions for signing up and then share your world with us.



A big part of my world is here, where I spend so much time during the spring and summer particularly. It's where I find the marvelous skies and clouds that are such fun to photograph. It's a great place to read, write, enjoy a meal and enjoy the sun!



And these are a few of the beautiful things to see in my world, from here on the deck!



Beautiful skies -- summer, spring and .....



winter!



A tulip tree!



Lilacs!



The moon!



And the best place to spend time with friends -- including the four-legged ones!

Just wonderful, Sylvia! What type of wood is the deck made of? It must be very strong to withstand the ravages of the seasons, particularly the rain and the sun.

You have gorgeous views, too, from there.

Sylvia, it is so nice of you to invite us to share your personal space...and of course that of your special friends.
You do have so much to see from there and a superb vantage point for skywatching. I'd love to share a cup of tea with you there or maybe something stronger at sunset.

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
