Our World Tuesday!!

 



Needless to say, I'm very pleased and excited about continuing with our new version -- Our World! Thank you, Gattina, for your help -- not only with the header, but helping me get the web address on my blog -- no idea what the problem was other than just me and old age!! 
I do so look forward to visiting your blogs and continuing to view your worlds as well!! I looked all around my world .... from the final touches i.e. new curtains in the living room of my new apartment, to the beach, to the flowers and the incredible view from my desk!! And what a wonderful world it is! Hope those of you on the East coast managed to escape the wrath of Irene and that all of you are ready for a great, new week!
Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save.

The more you read and observe about this Politics thing, you got to admit that each party is worse than the other. The one that's out always looks the best.

There is no credit to being a comedian, when you have the whole Government working for you. All you have to do is report the facts. I don't even have to exaggerate.

I love that last picture! So pretty.

Perry said...

Great photos Sylvia, as usual. :-) I really like the window shot though, letting us truly visit your world and see what you see.

I only learned this morning that Klaus passes. What sad news indeed. MyWorld was always one of my most favorite meme and I'll do my best to keep up with OurWorld. I think it is a great project. Looking forward to the launch! If I can help, let me know....

George said...

Your world is definitely beautiful. I like the view from your window and the picture of the harbor. Your new curtains look great.

gigihawaii said...

I love your world, Sylvia. Come and see my childhood home in Manoa Valley, my blog topic today.

ladyfi said...

Ah - lovely photos. I'm so glad Our World is continuing where My World left off.

May I make one teeny tiny suggestion? Not sure if it's just me - but I can't see an actual link to Our World Tuesday. If you click the photo, it just takes you to a page with the photo on it but not to the actual Our World web site... Might be good to help people find the new 'home' of Our World?

Indrani said...

Wonderful cheerful images. :)

Thanks for hosting this once more.

Spiderdama said...

Beautiful views from these windows on the last picture. I am very curious about that gray thing on the table, jump rope?
Happy week to you Sylvia:-)

Carver said...

I'd like to be sailing on the boat in the first picture. All of these shots are beautiful. Flowers, sailboats, interesting clouds, all are some of my favorite things. I also always enjoy your quotes.

Sylvia K said...

Spiderdama -- Don't I wish it was a jump rope!!! Try cane and was I ticked off to find I had left it in sight when I took the pic!! Ah, well, when you're old, you're old!!!

Lovely flowers. And a nice view into your private world or your personal living space!

EG Wow said...

I'm excited and pleased that you are part of the team that's inaugurating Our World! Thanks so much, Sylvia!

Gattina said...

What a wonderful world, (lalala !)

Tina said...

Let me know, if you need some help!

Gattina said...

You forgot to put a link to the new "Our World" blog !

TexWisGirl said...

these are all beautiful. first and last images especially. and dang, don't we still need will rogers around to bring us back to earth?

Sylvia K said...

Gattina, I didn't forget, haven't been able to put one that works, not sure what the problem is, I'm still trying. I did leave a note at the top of my blog to that effect. Sorry for all the beginning problems!!!

Looking outside through the window of your cozy apartment must give you inspiration daily, Sylvia. How wonderful that you are helping to carry on Klaus’ My World vision with Our world. The new icon is lovely and definitely eye-catching. :)

ewok1993 said...

let me reiterate my gratitude for your decision to keep this meme alive.

Ebie said...

Thank you Sylvia and the great team of women bloggers for continuing this meme. It is such a great place to see people from around the world. I will help advertise this to my other friends.

Al said...

Beautiful photos and great quotes as always, Sylvia. I'm so glad you're helping to host Our World Tuesday, and although I don't have a post for it this week, I will be a very regular participant.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

As always, your pictures are stunning and so are the quotes! I am in awe of the way you find them and never seem to reuse them.

Thank you so much again for continuing 'Our World." (I couldn't leave a comment on the blogsite itself, because it is set up the way yours used to be.) Just wanted to be sure you and the other wonderful ladies know you are appreciated. (I left a comment on their sites too.)

James said...

Great views and what a cool header!
Have a wonderful week Sylvia!

Snap said...

Beautiful images. My grandfather was a big fan of Will Rogers and would take me to the museum every time I visited. Thanks for the memories!

Cildemer said...

A very beautiful world that you share with us through your fabulous shots! Love the first and last shots!
Thanks for sharing , Sylvia;o)

Have a nice and happy week****

Life Ramblings said...

a wonderful look at your world Sylvia. Thanks so much for continuing to host this meme.

Gaelyn said...

Thank you! For sharing the beauty around your world and taking on this new meme.

Team G Square said...

Wonderful captures

Jack said...

It is a real race between Will Rogers and Mark Twain to see who is the best and wisest wordsmith. Can we call it a draw? (Get better, Sylvia.)

Arija said...

Sylvia, your garden ad living room look delightful. Those oriental poppies are a delicious colour, I only have pink ones.

I am sorry to hear you are under the weather and hope you recover very quickly.

I too had great trouble lifting the logo from anywhere. After many tries, I finally managed to lift it from your blog but still could not get one for my side bar. I know I am a bit backward when it comes to computers.

Get well and stay well my dear.

magiceye said...

that is a lovely world!

alicesg said...

Your world is so beautiful and take care from the weather. No idea why I cant see my link in my world, tried to link again but was told I already linked.

NatureFootstep said...

lovely shots as usual. I am so happy you started this meme again. Thanks, and have a great week.

Reader Wil said...

Wonderful idea to continue Klaus's meme under a different name! I clicked on the logo but nothing happened. Maybe it's because I am working on my iPad now. Anyway your photos are so beautiful, thanks for sharing!

Stewart M said...

Hi there - many, many thanks for bringing the "My/Our World" meme back. Not too many of us from the deep south are involved, so its good to be back on board.

Looking forward to all the posts.

Everything looks so beautiful! I love the sky, the flowers and your living room. I've always enjoyed viewing posts in this meme and I'm glad you're continuing it.

I'm always up for pics from your world coupled with Will Rogers quotes. I love your rooftop garden.

Thanks to you, and your cohosts for carrying on the spirit of Myworld with OurWorld.

Leovi said...

Wonderful, with those colors and delicious lights, I love them all.

Dianne said...

you have such a pretty home

I really love the last shot, very dramatic

thanks for checking in on us during Irene
hugs :)

Jackie said...

Lovely photo's I love those Poppies and the sky shot from your window. Will Rogers sounds like a man who had made a lot of common-sense statements, before the words common-sense were removed from the dictionary.

lotusleaf said...

Your sitting room is so comfortable and inviting!I feel like visiting you!

Martha Z said...

Thanks for your views of our world and as usual, the wonderful quotes.
My thanks, also, to you and the rest of the crew for keeping alive a meme where we could all share views of this wonderful world.

Francisca said...

Your world is very cozy, Sylvia, and you enjoy enviable views that no doubt will inspire many wonderful sky photos! Good job on getting this inaugural Our World going... never mind the little teething problems. Just enjoy. :-) [Hope the doctor's visit was just routine, nothing serious.]

SandyCarlson said...

GORGEOUS, all, my friend!

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.
