Weekend Reflections

Weekend Reflections is hosted by James each week beginning Friday at 11 AM Eastern Standard Time. It's another wonderful way of opening your eyes to new and different kinds of beauty. Once again our weather hasn't been particularly encouraging for any activity that requires sunlight! It's cold, windy, rainy as you can see in this first shot. That same neighbors tree showed up again in that reflection of a reflection and you can see the rain drops -- I haven't been trying to fool you! And you can see the reflection of the overhead light in the breakfast room. Then, of course, some of the other old regulars along with some more colored ones! Hope you have a wonderful weekend with lots of love and laughter and good food and a warm place to escape the cold!!

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.
