Weekend Reflections

Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine. 

Anthony J. D'Angelo, The College Blue Book

It was a very Happy Birthday!! Thank you, Adam!
Weekend Reflections is hosted by James each week beginning Friday at 11 AM Eastern Standard Time. It's another wonderful way of opening your eyes to new and different kinds of beauty. Click on the web address under the blog title and sign up to play with us! 

Hope you've all had a great week! Mine has been busy celebrating a birthday! Mine! What fun! And I have a doctors appointment this morning, so I'll be a little late checking out your reflections for the day, but I'll get there! My son and I spent time at the harbor and the Sanctuary yesterday and I had a wonderful birthday -- as you can see and the people in the reflections seem to be having fun, too!! So, some old and a new shots for the day with more new ones next week!  Wishing you all a lovely weekend!!


The happiness of life is made up of little things; a smile, a helping hand, a caring heart, a word of praise, a moment of shared laughter. We are most alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.

A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken.

A real hell of a year would be a year without summer AND constant sounds of lawn mower and leaf blower. Yeah, and no love either. Happily, you don´t look like being through that.

Arija said...

Have a wonderful year ny dear friend!

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.
