Sky Watch Friday!

Time to share your skies, the beauty over your world, the clouds, the colors! Sky Watch is hosted each week by  the Sky Watch team of  Sandy, Wren and me. And this week as every week, we remember Klaus and know that he joins us in spirit! 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.

It has been one of "those" weeks, but taking time to look up is always a reminder of the beauty in all of our worlds.  As usual, we've had a little bit of everything -- weather wise, too -- but I spent some time on the roof and got these over a couple of nights.

Hope all of you have a lovely weekend! Enjoy!
I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.
John Burroughs

A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.
Charles Darwin

All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better. Ralph Waldo Emerson
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment. Buddha

Beautiful skies -- I really like the John Burroughs quote -- that "not enough time" thing gets worse every year.

Thank you as always for hosting both wonderful memes.

Your photos from the roof on different days and the Buddha quote remind us that each day is different and we should indeed stop, enjoy, and appreciate all that nature has to offer in that moment.
Lovely skies as always Sylvia!

I love the john Burroughs quote. So true.
The weather has me somewhat confused. For example right now it is cloudy, but 75. Odd.

Leovi said...

A delicious light frames the beautiful sunset, I really like the diagonal composition in the first photo. greetings.

Life Ramblings said...

Terrebel said...

Breathtaking, Sylvia! Love the human-made "rainbow" in the first one and that golden sky later on...Wow!

Remembering the words of the Buddha I'd like to share with you one of my life's motto's: Live every day as if it could be your last but don't forget there may yet be a next one. However: my personal main motto is: "Someone has to do something about it and you can be someone."

Have a good weekend, Sylvia! I'll be in hospital next week for my hip-replacement so probably won't be able to post new pictures...But I'll be back!

Lovely skies - hope your next week isn't another of 'those' weeks;-)

Lovely skies, and all of the quotes are so true. Never should a day be wasted--the days, months, and now even the years all "fly by" so quickly. Precious, precious time--use it for all it's worth. Have a lovely weekend. Mickie :)

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

I love your rooftop shots. I think I'm going to tell Heather that we need a roof we can go up and hang out in.

I feel like Burroughs, the days are not long enough for everything I need to do.

MyMaracas said...

Your posts are always so uplifting. Beautiful clouds, inspiring words.

P.S. - Be careful up there on that roof!

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.
