Makes you wonder why some people feel the need to brag about their noble deeds... Lovely skies!

Steffi said...

Merisi said...

Beautiful skies!
That first sky is of unique beauty, looks as if the clouds were having a dance.

Happy Sky Watch,
Merisi

Wonderful views. First shot is out of this world.

Andrea said...

If being insincere is exhausting then I know some politicians that should be prostrate ... and, in fact, I hope they are. AS for your higness(another great header) ... you are so gorgeous. I empathize with you having to go through everything. Moving is soooo hard physically and emotionally. I sure wish you the best. Keep smiling ... you make the rest of us smile so you should be able to as well :)

Such beautiful swirly skies -- I see one of your readers is worried about missing your Washington sky after you move. I have every confidence that Portland will give you much heavenly beauty too!! The quote from Thoreau above is absolutely appropriate for all the beauty you see and share with us.

The opening image is a greeting all on it's own, wonderful Sylvia. Oh... and I ended up choosing Silvee for the name of our new puppy coming to us sometime first part of March;')~

I love the swirls and twirls in your clouds!

DrillerAA09 said...

Excellent images and words. Happy Skywatching.

Lowell said...

Hi Sylvia. Hope you are doing well! Lovely photos as usual. Re the last quotation: Maybe that's why I'm always so tired. It's hard to be insincere! :-)

Leovi said...

Ebie said...

Hi Sylvia, I have not been updated to what's happening, but your header looks very pretty, and can't help but ask myself, where is she moving to?

Geez, I sure am going to miss your beautiful skies!

Whatever its going to be, wherever it takes you, I wish you well and happiness!

Stewart M said...

Hi there - nice picture.

I see that this is Sandy's last SWF as a host - I'd throw my hat in the ring - but (there is always a but) - I'm just about flat out with WBW!

Hope you find another co-host.

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.
