A glance today at what will soon be in the past! And while I have loved the years I have spent in Seattle, I am looking forward to returning to my former home in Portland, Oregon! I will be moving back there on May 16th and I am excited! But for today a look at some tulips a beautiful harbor and beach, casinos  and SNOW!! I hope all of you have a wonderful week!!

What a header!

Oregon is such a beautiful State. I can well imagine all the scenic photographs you will take in and around Portland once you get settled. Getting settled is always a bit tricky but how wonderful that you have family to help. The busyness of the move and change in scenery will help ease the sadness over Sam.

Love the new header!!!

These piccies are so pretty - but have to say the tulips are capturing this eye. Simple and straightforward, yet clear and bright.

Hugs, YAM

Photo Cache said...

swapping one beautiful location to another is a good problem, if you would call it that. hope the move is smooth and you don't get too stressed out or dog tired.

Wherever we are, if we have lived in other places, we always miss somewhere else. Enjoy your rain rich Seattle while you are there. The skies from your elevated above have been a great delight.

A nice collage, Sylvia, much more professionally done than the one I cobbled together today.

You will love your new home, too. Because you are an adaptable girl.

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.
