Our World!!

Happy Monday!! And welcome to Our World!! Time to share the good, the bad, the beautiful and everything else about our world!!  Fall has definitely arrived in the northwest and as I was looking through some pics, I realized that there is beauty even in the bare and cold and the leafless! So, I’m sharing a few of those with you today!! Hope you enjoy!!  Wishing all of you a beautiful winter week!!

In every season find some joy! These are all very nice. My favorite, though, is the first one 'cause I love foggy photos!

Wishing you a wonderful week!

I think we have to embrace winter :) I know that's easy for me to say when we never go below 6C at our very coldest, and not very often!

Beautiful images Sylvia! In Colorado I realized again how beautiful bare trees can be! Sometimes I have forgotten to appreciate the seasons.

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.
