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. Join us and share your world with others from all over Our World! Just click on the post title, read the rules, sign up and play with us! 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?  A blogging friend of mine and I spent several hours on Saturday looking for some sun -- we didn't find it! Here are some samples of what we did find and a few of what we had hoped to find!

I'll probably be a little late visiting your blog today as I'm going to check out what may be my new home here in Seattle! More about that later!
An archaeologist is the best husband a woman can have. The older she gets the more interested he is in her.
Agatha Christie
Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.
Mark Twain
Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.
Henry Ford
I'm happy to report that my inner child is still ageless.
James Broughton
Middle age is the awkward period when Father Time starts catching up with Mother Nature.
Harold Coffin
As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.

I think the gray weather made for a couple of very effective photos. We are sharing in your damp and cloudy weather here in California, I'm glad I made the most of the sunshine while it lasted.

Reader Wil said...

Your photos are fabulous as ever. And I chose this quote: "I'm happy to report that my inner child is still ageless." ;)
Have a very happy week.

Coffin are great.

Wonderful shots of your new home town.

New home? Sounds very interesting, Sylvia! Look forward to hearing more. Meanwhile, I'm sure your "inner child" will go right along with you. :)

Wonderful photos and very wise words. The first one is very funny, too.

Some lovely photos. My favourite is the tree in bloom.

Kay L. Davies said...

I've seen the Agatha Christie quote before and I love it. Her books might not be great literature but she could certainly weave a plot.
Beautiful pictures, Sylvia, especially the last one. Gorgeous!

zeal4adventure said...

A nonchalant attitude on aging is the best way to keep young. I agree that no matter what age, we should not stop learning. Beautiful captures!

Truly beautiful photos-- the "gray" ones have an air of mystique about them, as does the first one. Great quotes, as usual.

Gattina said...

Gorgeous pictures !
Agatha Christie was a wise woman, lol !

Birgitta - foto CHIP said...

I haven't stopped learing or wanting to learn more - a good sign ;)
I have even started to learn Hungarian and that is NOT an easy language :)
You pick important wise words Sylvia!

What Can I Say?

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.
