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?  I've been in my new place for a day and a half and it's wonderful!! Another look at the view from my office and  a couple of quick peeks  at my "unfinished" office and bedroom! I'm really pleased they're coming along as well as they are! Adam and Amber spent the afternoon here adding to the fun!  It has been a great move in many different ways!! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!

After two sunny, perfect moving days, the pouring rain returned today! But guess what? It doesn't look nearly as grim and depressing from 5 floors up!!

Oh, I just love your new home, Sylvia! You have made it your own! Like where you placed your colored glass on the window sills. You also have a beautiful view!

aka Penelope said...

Oh … I love the lacey curtain photo and the lighting and shadows. Also, love how your new home overlooks a forest, Sylvia! In view of the sunset, it seems to face West. For having just moved in the rooms look impressively tidy … although I wouldn’t be surprised if there were unpacked boxes behind the scenes. :)

Life Ramblings said...

I like your new space and the view from your window is stunningly beautiful. enjoy your week Sylvia!

texwisgirl said...

i do love the curtains and glass - very homey already.

jabblog said...

I'm glad to see your signature coloured glass is in pride of place and your plants. You are settling in quickly - well done:-)

Martha Z said...

It looks like you will enjoy some great views from your new home, lots of great sky shots.

Sally in WA said...

It looks wonderful, Sylvia. I just know we will continue to see great pictures from a new viewpoint. :)

EG Wow said...

The first thing I noticed was the coloured glass in the windows. Yep, this is definitely YOUR place. :)

Eve said...

Congratulations on your move! :D

Al said...

Awesome, Sylvia - I'm glad your move is almost complete. Now there's lots of unpacking, but I'm glad to see your colored glass is already making you feel at home!

Rajesh said...

You have got a lovely place there. Both homre and office are very nice.

Mama Zen said...

Lovely place! And, what a lovely view!

Margie's Musings said...

Carolyn Ford said...

awwww...I am glad you are happy with your move. It will feel like home in no time. What a nice window to have for your office 'look-out'! Have a great week, Sylvia...you deserve it!

ewok1993 said...

so nice to hear that the move wasn't all that difficult. so envious of your work station. i foresee mine to be that way, clean, but mine is the exact opposite.

Pat said...

Lovely, airy, clean and bright new apartment, Sylvia...I'm happy for you! Thanks for the mini-tour.

forgetmenot said...

Glad you are all moved in--you will be able to see the world from 5 floors up. What a beautiful welcome you received with that lovely sunset. Enjoy your new place. Mickie

Starnitesky said...

Moving is so difficult, I still don't feel settled since I moved 4 years ago. Your new home looks lovely and those views are wonderful, I hope you can see the sun rise or set from your windows. Your bedroom looks like a relaxing place. I hope you will be happy there.
Take care and enjoy your week unpacking.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

What a nice place. I love how you got your desk jam up to the window. (I love how the new monitors are so darn big and bulky.) What a view to ponder things over.

Thanks for showing us a bit of your new world!

Stewart M said...

Hi - glad to hear that your move went well.
I like the idea of pictures through gaps and sapces - just like your window shot - I think they give the image a sense of depth. I also like the way they frame the picture, just like a frame on a print or painting.

Have a good week - Stewart M - Australia

snowwhite said...

Tranquil and peaceful photos are great soothing! All I need is a neat desk like yours. And all I must know is "how to live the time that is given you". Sylvia, thank you for sharing. Have a nice week!

Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy said...

Jack said...

I hope you are happy in this new home, Sylvia.

SandyCarlson said...

Your photos are utterly amazing.

ladyfi said...

It looks lovely up there with the birds and clouds and sunlight!

Dianne said...

Oh! that beautiful forest and lovely sunset right out your window - and a desk ever so tidy.

Ebie said...

Congratulations, that was a fast set up! I see some familiar things in their places!


Take it easy and take care!

stardust said...

I'm happy for you, Sylvia, that you were blessed with fine weather during two days of moving and that your new place looks so neat, comfortable, and fascinating with the views of forest, sunset, and the likes. I love light and shadows created through lace curtains. I nodded deeply especially with the last quoted words.

Team G Square said...

Amazingly fast . Great pics .

alicesg said...

Wow love the study area with such a good view. Would love to have one like that.

Lesley said...

Congratulations. You aren't wasting any time, are you?!

kRiZ cPEc said...

a great view outside the window, love that. :)

Lew said...

Looks like your office is coming along nicely! And you have a great perch for watching the sky.

NatureFootstep said...

oh, is that where you sit and work at the computer? Don´t the backlight disturb you? You might get headache. I could not place mine like that.

I love the curtains. :)

Gattina said...

Your flat looks real nice and now I can imagine from where you blog !!

Wren said...

It's good to see you settling in. I know every time I've moved, I've sworn "never again" but then that doesn't hold up, does it? You look to have a lovely new place, looking down on the rain. Enjoy the beauty you are so good at finding all around you.

Wren said...

PS. I hope you're saving us some cake!

Cezar and Léia said...

wow I'm envious here, you have such a wonderful view from your window!
Beautiful pictures!

Beautiful shots, looks REAL GOOOOD! :)

jo©o said...

Well, its behind you.
So neat and tidy and settled.
And still that wonderful sky above for you to photograph without having to leave home.
What was that about being on the roof?

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I'm so happy for you! Love the Apartment. The quote about all change even the good ones being stressful is certainly appropriate in your circumstances. But what a beautiful spot and soon you will wake up and feel like you've always lived there. It's a beautiful place.

Gunsside said...

Your sunset is marvelous !
- and its always fun to see your new quotes :))

Genie said...

What a fabulous view you have...I am so thrilled that you are happy and the move is basically complete. Now your new life in a new home can begin. Happy days are ahead for you.

Kay said...

Oh wow! I love your new place and view! You'll be getting a ton of Skywatch photos from your window. Glad your move is done.

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.
