Shadow Shot Sunday!

Get out the magnifying glass, get into your best sleuthing clothes and start prowling your environment looking for those wonderful, but sometimes elusive shadows. This fun and challenging meme is hosted each week by Tracy over at Hey Harriet! Click on the link under the blog title and sign up to play!! Nothing really special with the shadows for today -- just a reminder to me and you that we do have sunshine in Seattle and it does make the beautiful things gorgeous! Have a beautiful, wonderful weekend!
Happiness depends more on the inward disposition of the mind than on outward circumstances.

Your home is lovely, but the preferred place is on your patio. The plants leave nice shadows, the result of the usually scarce Seattle sun. A calm and relaxing place you have!

I'm so glad the sun shone on Seattle this week! I bet the plants i the pots are singing. (If only we could hear their songs, eh?)

I lov to see how well you have established yourself in your new abode. It all looks so perfect and thriving. Pot plants cast such perfect shadows and always make me happy for the bonus of beauty on a sunny day.
Great shots as always.

Enjoy the sunshine, it is shining here too between the cold, rainy days.

Another way to express Mr. Fnklin's quote is that you can choose your attitude. A good rule to live by.

I like how you have the figure sunbathing resting on the turtle in your header photo. It is so cleverly 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.
