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 and I. 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!  http://skyley.blogspot.com/
 And so the new year is here and so is WINTER!!  I can't complain as we've had some beautiful sunny days, chilly, but beautiful. I'm not sure how long before the rain returns and colder temps, but I'll enjoy what we have for now!! Hope all of you have a great weekend!
The color of springtime is in the flowers; the color of winter is in the imagination. Terri Guillemets

What marvellous shots!

It's too warm over here - I want winter back! (Remind me I said that when I complain in February!)

Thanx for the Marilu quote. Reminds me of something Carl Rogers (great psychogist) said: Most of what we feel is personal is also universal.

So, if you're feeling the January blues, so is most of the rest of the world.

"Blue, blue, my world is blue..."

Fun quotes. I like the bad mood one. It's so not-positive. Some days that's OK too.

Happy new year Sylvia, it's great to have a chance to Skywatch again.

I'm not a winter person at all, but there's no question that the skies are more dramatic and much lovelier this time of year.

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.
