Sky Watch Friday!

Time to share your skies, the beauty over your world, the clouds, the colors! Sky Watch is hosted each week by Klaus and the Sky Watch team of Klaus, Sandy, Wren and me. Join us and the many people from all over the world who share theirs with us each week! Click on the post title to be taken to the SWF website where you can sign up.Things are beginning to bloom and we have had some sun and some lovely skies. I'm really looking forward to the new views of skies that I will have from my new apartment! The excitement is growing!! But here are some from the past week! Enjoy!

Martha Z said...

You got some nice, airy clouds this week; not the brooding, threatening ones we've been having.
We both featured Edna St. Vincent Millay today, interesting.

EG Wow said...

I like them all, Sylvia, but the first one is filled with drama - almost like white flames in the sky. (Or is that my over-active imagination?)

overtiredmum said...

ohhhh - love that first one - it's a picnic rug sky - to be enjoyed lying down with a full tummy!

Reader Wil said...

The skies show the greatness of the creator. You know to show your skies that very well!

Maria said...

I'm visiting you from my school desk... day is over and I'm enjoying a little sky watching before I clean off my desk and organize!

Oh my goodness, Sylvia... I love this quote:
Beauty is only temporary, but your mind lasts you a lifetime.

I'm making a poster of it and putting it on my classroom door today before I leave!
Thank you for the beautiful inspirations today!

Earthquakes have struck the northern parts of this country, causing some buildings in Bangkok swaying. We did not feel a thing, but I guess we will look less at the sky and more to the ground and around us for the next few days... :-(

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.
