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?  Well, it will be the end of the month before Sam and I can move as the paperwork wasn't sent to Corporate until every required document had been received. After delays, phone calls, faxes we finally got it all together on Thursday and hand carried it to the complex!  I did get to see the apartment again and it's even better than I remembered it! So, it'll be worth the wait!  And here are those lovely things in my world right now!
 Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.
Jim Rohn
 
A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.

An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

 These two shots are from the arboretum a couple of weeks ago. I'd like to sit on this bench in the sunshine and just soak up the beauty!!
There ought to be one day - just one - when there is open season on senators.

I'm delighted to hear that the paperwork has finally been completed and you have a date for moving to your new apartment.
I really like the color of the tulips in your first picture.

Gattina said...

I thought you had moved already and wondered why you didn't show any pictures ! Paperwork ! everywhere the same ! Beautiful pictures of your actual world !

aka Penelope said...

Oh, what luminous tulips you have captured, Sylvia. The sun has cast a magic glow amid the colorful glass goblets, vases and paper-thin petals. And I enjoyed Wayne Dyer’s quote, in particular. I think it is true. Also, it's always nice and somewhat a surprise when things look better than expected. :)

Beautiful tulips! - We saw a few tulip leaves while out exploring this weekend, so they should be blooming around here soon! :D

Oh that little dog and the attitude quote are perfect together! Adorable creature.

I love arboretums. We have a nice one here in Tulsa. It is small but very nice.

Your dog looks like he is ready to move.

We live in a paperwork world! Have patience Sylvia.

You are just the best at coming up with great quotations. I love your photo of the terrier....makes me think of our title schnauzer, and the shot with the bench is wonderful. Great selection of pictures today.

Oooo love the purple tulips, my favourite colour.

Ebie said...

Just as we have no wildflowers, am sad that there's no tulip festival this past weeks in Skagit.

The purple tulips are my favorite colors. They are so pretty.

Have a nice week!

Lew said...

Your quotes are right on! Will Rogers, Mark Twain and others understood human nature and politics. Thanks for your comment on my tax post. Even though our taxable income went up,
our overall Federal tax is less than 7% of total income. I am not complaining about that, just the way IRS makes you get to the pooint of writing a check.

Vicky said...

Amazing photos, especially the tulips!!!!!

Kay said...

Such gorgeous photos, Sylvia. I do love those tulips and your sweet dog. What an adorable face!

stardust said...

The translucent petals and leaves of tulips are glowing in the spring light. It's my favorite. I also like the scene with a bench. Wayne Dyer's quote is so true. Thank you for sharing, Sylvia.

Louis la Vache said...

«Louis», a big fan of Winston Churchill, enjoyed seeing your quotes from Winnie. We never learn, do we? Churchill's quote about the appeasers is as appropriate today in the face of radical Islam as it was in his time against Naziism....

Starnitesky said...

Beautiful world as usual, I love the colour of the tulips.

Enrique G.A. said...

A very good picture of those tulips, and a very nice light.
The photo of the sun, has a magical color and brightness.
The third picture, the forest is very good.
The dog is very nice.
Greetings .-

Sally in WA said...

Nice pictures, Sylvia, especially of the Arboretum. I will be glad to get some free time in the schedule once again so we can revisit there.

Sam is just adorable!!

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.
