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 address under the post title to be taken to the SWF website where you can sign up.  This was our sunset night before last at the end of a gray, rainy day!  Needless to say, I loved the change of skies! I will visit as many of your blogs as I can today, but I'm up to my eyeballs in packing boxes -- well, you get the picture!!!

The skies threw a good-bye party for you, Sylvia! Those clouds are dancing! I've packed so many times I can no longer count... and I have to move house again in a few months, so I feel your pain! But as EG says, just think, next week it'll be over and you'll be home! And another lovely header just for you!

your heading is really fun, Sylvia! those skies look really unique and beautiful! have a good weekend!

Tracy said...

Sylvia,
Your pictures today took me back to a place earlier in my teaching when I taught in a self-contained class of EMH kids. We did an art project where the kids painted over tissue paper to produce a colorful sky and then we cut out silhouettes of trees and houses and glued them on the beautiful skies. They turned out so lovely and the kids were so proud!
Your photos are gorgeous and the ones with the wisps are really spectacular!

Kim, USA said...

These sky reminds me of our project when I was in grade school were we have to melt a colored candle then drip it into a colored paper then blew it. This has the same effect just beautiful!

Lovely delicate skies! I hope I see skies like this soon! I'm headed back up your way but will continue on to Canada to visit relatives. I'll be back with more time on my hands during the summer. By then you should be all settled into your new place, right?

Maria said...

Hi Sylvia! Mark Twain's quote is fabulous!
Love it!
The wispy cloud is so pretty. It's so soft and flowy ~ and would have kept my attention for the time it drifted by ... very serene.

Happy weekend to you, Sylvia!

Stewart M said...

Hi there - I think you could watch clouds every day of your life and never see them all, never get bored and chances are you would not really have wasted your time either.

Splendid picture. Stewart M - Australia

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.
