One Quiet Moment

Happy Sea Critters!

An afternoon with some sea critters! I'm not sure about them, but I had fun!!

Even if happiness forgets you a little bit, never completely forget about it.  Jacques Prévert

The most wasted of all days is that in which we have not laughed.  Nicolas Chamfort, translated from French

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 by 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/ 
 The first ten days I was in Portland it RAINED!!! and the skies were gray, gray, gray!! When we finally had some sunshine it was in the middle of the week, no way for me to get around other than around the back yard!! It was good to see the blue, but obviously no wide view!!

One Quiet Moment

Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.   Joshua J. Marine

A Giggle for the Day!

Satan Appeared

One Sunday morning, Satan appeared before a small town congregation. Everyone started screaming and running for the front church door, trampling each other in a frantic effort to get away.

Soon, everyone was gone, except for an elderly gentleman who sat calmly. Satan walked up to the man and said, "Don't you know who I am?"

The man replied, "Yep, sure do."

Satan asked, "Aren't you going to run?"

"Nope, sure ain't," said the man.

Perturbed, Satan asked, "Why aren't you afraid of me?"

The man calmly replied, "Been married to your sister for over 48 years."

And how about a little beauty for the day!!

One Quiet Moment

Beauty, truth, friendship, love, creation – these are the great values of life. We can't prove them, or explain them, yet they are the most stable things in our lives.    Jesse Herman Holmes

Happy Tuesday?????

One Quiet Moment!!

Nature never hurries. Atom by atom, little by little she
     achieves her work.

I've been reading this, and  repeating this over and over the past couple of days!!!

One Step at a Time!!!

Between Google and MSN, I'm totally freaking out today!! I've lost two posts, have no connection that's worth much, my phone is dead and the charger has gone missing in the move!!  I had SO looked forward to seeing all of your worlds today, but I guess it's not going to happen. Hope all of you have a great week and I do hope to join you again SOON!! If you want to comment or contact me, try sylvia.kirkwood5@gmail.com

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.
