People are so worried about what they eat between Christmas and the New Year, but they really should be worried about what they eat between the New Year and Christmas.  Author Unknown

The new year begins in a snow-storm of white vows.  George William Curtis

Go to Heaven for the climate, Hell for the company.

Be at War with your Vices, at Peace with your Neighbors, and let every New-Year find you a better Man.  Benjamin Franklin

You would think that with all the wise words uttered by so many smart people in our world we would be living in Utopia by now. I like what Benjamin Franklin had to say. Seems it would apply not only to countries but also to every neighborhood. :)

Sylvia, Happy New Year! I was looking way back at the beginning of this blog. It's been quite a few years now. Did you have another one before this blog?

Betsy Adams said...

Hi Sylvia... HA HA---we should be worried about what we eat between New Year's and Christmas, shouldn't we?????

Love the photos especially the last two... The snow on evergreens is always a favorite of mine.

Happy 2013.
Hugs,
Betsy

Those wonderful flowers on parade are stunning! Such bright colours! And love the snowy peak! Gorgeous collection of photos!

Lowell said...

What a superb series of photos...those floral pics are breathtaking. What fantastic colors!

I like the quote about eating. So true. People keep telling me I need more "will power" to lose weight. I tell them, "I've got tons of will power. What I don't have is 'won't' power!"

Great quotes, Sylvia! And your images are beautiful. I would think the tulip festival is a must see each year. Thanks for hosting thru the 2012 year and I have enjoyed visiting your blog. I wish you all the best in 2013, Happy New Year!

Best wishes for the new year. Your photos are great and the scenery is very beautiful.

Eugenia Robinson said...

Sylvia....You have given us a wonderful year of beautiful photos of the Pacific northwest and so many meaningful quotes. Love the picture of Mr. Ranier, you porch with the snow on it, and the two pictures of the flowers. I am dying to know where those were taken. I also need to say KUDOS to your dear friend in Mumbai for all of her clever and hilarious banners for your blog. They always make my day. She is such a talented artist as you are a photographer. Here is wishing you a new year filled with happiness, good health, and lots of time for more beautiful picture taking...and keep those great quotes coming. genie

The perfection of summer and winter, wonderful Sylvia!
As you enjoy the first snows of winter, you can also look back at the wonders of a flower filled world.
A really lovely post.

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.
