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. Even the weathermen are sounding hopeless today as the rain began to pour again and the temps remain chilly. So, I've had to go back to some of the earlier shots of my new skies -- hope you don't get totally bored with them before spring actually makes a warm and beautiful entrance to the northwest!!

I really like the clouds sailing toward the horizon in your first picture, but the picture above the Michelangelo quote is also beautiful. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and that warmer weather soon puts in an appearance.

I love that third shot. Even better--I love to fantasize about the sound of your rain. It's been over three months here without precipitation; our rain has gone to everyone else!

Hi! finally Blogger's back! Thanks for sharing these nice shots, have a nice weekend. :)

Kay L. Davies said...

Fabulous photos, Sylvia. I love the cloud picture above the Michelangelo quotation.
HOWever, I can't get the Sky Watch page for this week. I can only get last week's. I'm beginning to think Blogger lost it permanently when it went through that post-removal thing to help with its maintenance. Maybe you and/or the rest of the team might know something I don't know?

Yes, beautiful skies you have this week! Some people added this weeks sky posts to last weeks links page. I think this weeks page is in "schedule" limbo. I found my "windows" post waiting for May 11 to return and posted it manually. hope your weekend is delightful; ours is predicted to be wet.

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.
