That's My World!

That's My World is hosted each week by Klaus and the My World team, Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy and me. Click on the icon and share your world with others from all over Our World! So! How is your world this week? Have you taken time to see the beauty there? What is it about your world that makes you smile or laugh or feel grateful for? You can click on the photos to embiggen and get a better look!

 We had such a gorgeous day Saturday, but I wasn't able to get out to take any new shots and it's probably just as well because the harbor and the beach would have been packed and I probably couldn't have gotten anything but pics of the mob and who needs that!!! So, I'm sharing some of the beautiful things that make everyday in 'my world' a wonderful day!


For business reasons, I must preserve the outward signs of sanity. — Mark Twain
If you want love and abundance in your life, give it away.  — Mark Twain

Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.  — Mark Twain

Now this quote I'm still working on  -- you know, the mind over matter stuff! Even though
I agree, total acceptance is never easy! 
 May you all have a wonderful day in Your World!!

The weather is dreadful here right now Sylvia - summer has left us for sure!
Thanks for some sunshine - well appreciated I can tell you.

Some of my favorite photo subjects, Sylvia, trees and flowers, ocean and beach...but my heart always does a little jig when I see pet pictures. Call me sentimental, but...
And I know what you mean about accepting one's age. I have a chapter on it (12/27/09). The blog post is entitled "What Do You Mean???" with three question marks but the chapter of the book is "Just Accept it?????" with, yes, five question marks to indicate my absolute horror.

we have a gorgeous weekend weather wise too. a tad hot for my taste (mid 90s), but all in all got no complaints. except probably not totally accepting my age as well :D

enjoy the last week of september.

Yesterday one of my neighbours was having his birthday and of course age was an important issue! Therefore I like this quote of Mark Twain:"Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter". — Mark Twain
Great post Sylvia

I love the one about age being mind over matter. I guess I don't mind until I feel it in the aches and such.

Rajesh said...

Wonderful collection of every day shots from your beautiful world Sylvia.

EG Wow said...

Some days I have a problem with the age thing too, Sylvia. Some days it does matter that I'm not younger. :)

Here, in Brazil, it's spring, but the wheather is bad and rainny.
Great post with many things to think about.

Have a nice day.

Rob G said...

I am so with you on the crowd avoidance - I.do.not.do.crowds.

It's also a useful exercise to review our blessings once in a while, so staying home was not such a bad thing.

Have a good week my friend.

Xavi said...

I love all of this, Sylvia. Beautiful shots.

Your Twain quotes have me hankering for a trip to his house in Hartford. Maybe Saturday....

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Your everyday life is beautiful and you present it so well....

George said...

You created a wonderful collage and it didn't have mobs of people in it. Like you, I'm going to have to think about that Mark Twain age quote. My mind doesn't think about my age, but legs sure seem to keep it in mind.

Lily Hydrangea said...

I like the quote about getting what you give - it's so very true!
Beautiful flowers in your collage Sylvia!

~Cheryl said...

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.
