Weekend Reflections


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! 


Ah, fall and gray skies have arrived in Seattle, but the temps are pleasant!  I was reminiscing about my birthday this year -- it was such fun to be able to visit the harbor again and the Bird Sanctuary and get to see my duck and turtle friends as well as a lovely sunset. And then I happened to see some of the colored glass pieces that I had given my son and his bride-to-be! So, that is what you have for today!  Hope you all have a beautiful weekend with lots of love and laughter!!

 
There are always flowers for those who want to see them. Henri Matisse

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Great shots! Love those turtles all in a row, and of course your glass reflections are one of my faves. Enjoy the weekend.

As much as I love filtered light and colored glasses, your sunsets are so stunning. The wonderful thing is that we cannot use them all up... there will be one every single day!

Enjoy your weekend, mon amie!

Bises,

Great shots, Sylvia, and welcome back to your normal skies! We had two days of grey skies this week, that's the second time it's happened this summer! But it had cleared up by this morning. I hope you and Sam have a great weekend!

I like the turtles! When I first saw the photo, I thought you had captured a croc, but then I noted all the extra bumps!

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.
