Weekend Reflections



 
Weekend Reflections is hosted by James each week beginning Friday at 11 AM Eastern Standard Time. It's another wonderful way of opening your eyes to new and different kinds of beauty. 

My oldest son was here in Seattle to be the best man in his brother's wedding on Saturday and then on Sunday, his sister and I took him to the Japanese Gardens here in Portland! It was a great day -- particularly for me because I got lessons on the camera he gave me for Christmas!! Here are a couple of my shots for the day!! I think they're pretty cool for an old broad!!! I particularly love the lily blossoms!! But fish were lovely and colorful!

I loved that garden when we were there, and I remember taking pictures of the koi. But I definitely could have used your son's lessons!! Your pictures are just great.

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.
