Our World!!

A mostly gray and foggy world it is here in the northwest!!  Yep, I do long for spring!!  But I shouldn't whine, lots of people have it SO much worse!! Ah, but maybe this is the real answer!!
To shorten winter, borrow some money due in spring. ~W.J. Vogel

Wishing all of you a most beautiful and joyous Happy New Year!!

Just popping in to wish you a wonderful New Year Sylvia.

It's so pretty there, I'm always amazed at how green your world is, Sylvia. Have a very Happy New Year. I'll give Socks a pat for you, and also little Laika, another small dog we're looking after for a couple of weeks.

Happy New Year to you and I like the foggy scenery. It looks so lovely and cool in comparison to the heat we are having!

It's eerie how it looks like fall with snowflakes falling. We have no orange left. My World Tuesday: http://www.looseleafnotes.com/2013/12/a-breath-of-fresh-air/

Sorry about your dreary weather! The quote is funny and so true! Thanks for sharing, Sylvia!
Wishing you all the best in 2014, Happy New Year to you and your family!

With exception of one day of snowfall it has been pretty standard West Coast winter weather … damp, foggy and gray. They certainly have it rougher in the East Coast, however. Happy New Year, Sylvia!

Cynthia said...

Nice you still have greens and reds to brighten up the winter. Happy New Year!

Leovi said...

Happy New Year Sylvia!

Minoru Saito said...

Hi! Nice capture. Thanks for sharing.There are many sunny days in winter in Tokyo. Wishing you a happy new year.

Arija said...

It doesn't look wintery at all where you are., just like a foggy fall day. Your quote for the day is a really good one.
If the day is grey outside, light a candle in your heart and be flooded by joy.

Have the Happiest New Year ever!!!

Rajesh said...

Beautiful and very pleasant.

Lowell said...

That first quote is very good - hadn't heard that one before. I guess most things are relative in one way or another. Better yet, don't borrow money, save it and come to Florida in the winter! :)

Your photo portrays a scene similar to what you might find here. We do get some seasonal changes and one of those involves trees where the leaves turn about this time of year!

Hope your New Year celebration is joyous. Be safe and enjoy!

Kay said...

Sigh... It's true. It's near 0 where my daughter lives and their furnace died. Sheesh! The fish died, but they have heat now. Thank goodness! I love your Seattle fog.

Kay said...

Oh dear! I forgot to wish you a very happy new year, Sylvia. Thank you for making my year so much happier. I'll be looking forward to 2014 with you.

RuneE said...

At least it is green and not grey, but I agree - spring should be here in about 2, 3, 4 months ....

Happy New Year!

Indrani said...

Time is flying fast and Spring will be there soon. It is 2014 already!
Have a great year ahead!

Gosh, we're so cold, with an ice storm and 30cm snow. Good to see some green!

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.
