Sky Watch!!

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 led of Yogi, Sandy and Sylvia. 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/
 We had a sunny day this week -- ONE!! But it has been a mild, if gray, winter so far so I really can't complain other than I miss our colorful skies and glorious sunrises and sunsets -- all the more reason to take lots of photos when they are there!!! Here's some from earlier!!
We either make ourselves happy or miserable. The amount of work is the
same.   Carlos Castaneda

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

To get up each morning with the resolve to be happy is to set our own conditions to the events of each day. To do this is to condition circumstances instead of being conditioned by them.  Ralph Waldo Emerson

Lowell said...

Are you, with these beautiful pictures and pithy sayings, telling me that I should not allow my happiness to be determined by things and people other than myself? Is that what you're saying? :-)

Right. But it's hard to sometimes 'cause sometimes the conditions in which we find ourselves do not lend themselves to any kind of happiness.

Here's ends the lecture.

Have a wonderful afternoon and evening and go into Friday with high hopes.

Well, you definitely took full advantage of your *one* day with these beautiful pictures. Glad you got out and about! And sometimes I miss the feeling those precious rare spring days bring.

What a panorama of glorious colors in these photos. You need the gray, rainy days in order to fully appreciate the beauty of skies such as these.

Hope that you have a wonderful weekend with a bit of blue sky.

Bises,
Genie

I see we are sharing gray skies but you seem to have more glorious sunsets. I seem to miss them so I miss the summer I stayed right on the coast with a view of the ocean. Spectacular photos that summer, lol. Have a great weekend.

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.
