Sky Watch Friday!



And another week has slipped by!! Time to look up and enjoy the beauty of our skies!!  We’re having amazingly mild weather for Oregon in January!! I’m not complaining mind you, just surprised.  Here are some favorites from now and from earlier! Hope you enjoy!!

Character may be manifested in the great moments, but it is made in the small ones.

Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born.
-- Dr. Dale Turner

I'm not afraid of storms, for I'm learning to sail my ship.

You're sky high today...beautiful. I don't understand Alcott's quote, though. I'd think if you were learning to sail your ship you'd be terrified of storms! :)

Neat sky shots and isn't it refreshing to know that dreams are renewable. :)

Make the most of your mild weather Sylvia, hope it lasts over the weekend :) Your skies look fab today, as always.

After a series of serious windstorms, we in the northwest have also been enjoying a softer January than most. I like the last quote about learning to sail a ship. As the first comment says … a storm is never less scary but approaching it with knowledge and self-confidence helps.

Gorgeous skies, Sylvia. We're on the rollercoaster - 50 degrees and sunny for a couple of days, then 20 with snow for a day. Then back again. Enjoy your weekend!

I like the first shot and love all the quotes. You seem to find just the right quote for me each day.

Not only are your pictures gorgeous - the quotes you choose are amazing too.

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.
