Wishing all of you a lovely, restful, happy weekend!
It is only possible to live happily ever after on a day to day
basis.  Margaret Bonnano
The happiest people don't worry too much about whether life is fair or not,
they just get on with it.   Andrew Matthews
The pleasantest things in the world are pleasant thoughts: and the great art
of life is to have as many of them as possible.  Montaigne

Martha Z said...

I always enjoy your images from the Pacific Northwest and the thought provoking quotes you find for us.

Dorian Susan said...

The quotes you find are always so inspirational. And I see you have sunsets and ducks today, and rippling waters. That's a good thing....you'll see why.

George said...

I appreciate all your quotes about happiness. I don't think I can pick a favorite. I can't pick a favorite picture, either. All of them are grand.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Antonette said...

The 2nd one is my favorite! But I like them all. Have a wonderful weekend, Sylvia!

Pam said...

I could sit by all three beautiful reflections and be as happy as a pig in mud.

Have a delightful weekend Sylvia.
Hugs and smiles,
Pam :)

Love that quote on the happiest people. Isn't that so true!

jennyfreckles said...

Gorgeous photos as always, Sylvia. I come here for a rest, a moment of peace and your quotes give me pause for thought.

Carola said...

The sun shot is awesome. Such a happy scenery.

Genie said...

Beautiful images again this week. I really like the last one. It reminds me of the swampy waters back at Lake Okeechobee. Wonder where the haters are???genie

EG Wow said...

Love these photos of what we can look forward to in a few months. :))

Leovi said...

Yes, no doubt precious photos. Today I prefer the latter and the nice reflections of the tree. Greetings.

Kay said...

Wishing you nothing but pleasant thoughts this weekend, Sylvia! Aloha from Hawaii!

NixBlog said...

BEautiful captures, Sylvia. That first one is my favourite - picture postcard perfect!

Sallie (FullTiime-Life) said...

Gorgeous pictures. I have my own take on that one saying: "The happiest bloggers don't worry about whether our pictures are as good as Sylvia's. We just get on with it (and post our own feeble efforts ;>)!" You are SO good.

Woody said...

Nice reflections and I love the Matthews quote - I recite something similar to my kids all the time.

Jack said...

Pretty, Sylvia. The sun in the middle image really catches the eye.

Ms. Becky said...

I love your ducks and turtles! the colors in the first shot are just smashing. I really like the Andrew Matthews quote. always a pleasure Sylvia. Happy weekend to you.

lotusleaf said...

The pictures are all so wonderful. The last quote is very valid for present times. We should cultivate the art of having pleasant thoughts every second. I hope you have a pleasant weekend!

Team G Square said...

Awesome .........

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Love that quote about the happiest people. NEAT!!!!!

Great pictures and quotes.

Betsy

Ann said...

I like that little turtle, is he sun bathing?

Indrani said...

Lovely captures. The quotes always are interesting. They give me a daily dose of wisdom. :)

Ebie said...

The light coming in to the inlet and the trees are pretty! The colors and reflections on the water are a beauty!

Enjoy your weekend Ms.S.

magiceye said...

all so beautiful!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Love that first photo a bunch. Love the quotes. We just have to figure out a way to be happy in this world don't we. It rarely involves big cars, houses, and such.

Francisca said...

Sylvia, I think there is a special magnet on your camera that finds the ducks and turtles! Yay for us! You too have a lovely weekend!

Deb said...

very nice.....

Rohit Sareen said...

is that a lake/pond followed by the sea in the first shot...quite a contrast u've got then in calm waters and tides :)

have a great weekend!

Pat said...

Your first photo is my fav--with its beautiful crisp colors. Have a wonderful weekend, Sylvia!

A beautiful triplet Sylvia. The first image is special.

What Can I Say?

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.
