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!

Still having to rely on my photo files, not much sun! Guess I can't really complain though -- it may be rainy and dark, but it's not that cold!  Patience, that's what I need and have very little of!!



Character may be manifested in the great moments, but it is made in the
small ones.

I could patiently wait for the sun to reappear if I had file photos like these. The sun in all its golden glory is fabulous!

Bises,

These are all beautiful, Sylvia. If I had to choose my favorite, I'd choose the last one--so sweet.

Karen said...

Beautiful archived shots and one happy-looking dog. I'll be working this weekend so Socks won't get much attention, but I hope you have a great weekend!

George said...

You have tremendous images in your files. I really like the flamingos and their reflections.
Have a great (and hopefully sunny) weekend.

Halcyon said...

Love that sky in your first shot. It deserves a second view in reflection. :)

Doru said...

Great photos, amazing words ...
Thank you!

Dorian Susan said...

Those flamingoes are pretty cool. Not something you see in Maine, that's for sure.
My fave is the swimming dog. My Tula isn't a swimmer, but my past two dogs loved the water. I miss throwing sticks and having a "retriever".

love the flamingos!

Dianne said...

The peaceful capture of the dog taking a swim brought a smile to my face.
Enjoy your weekend Sylvia.

Lovely photos as usual - there's a serenity in your blog that is so attractive. It must be how you are yourself and it shines through. I never tire of sunsets - but right now I wouldn't mind being on a lake shore watching that dog frolic.

I want to soak up that sun!!

Pam said...

Beautiful reflections and words.. I was wondering if that is your son in the last photo, Sylvia.

Hugs, Pam :)

Dianne said...

the flamingos are lovely
the last shot is very sweet

Sylvia K said...

Thanks as always for stopping by, Pam! Yes, that is my youngest son and his dog, Mojo. She does love to swim and this shot was taken on my birthday last August. Adam and our dogs and me spent the whole day together and it was such fun!!

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.
