Sky Watch!!!

The New Year is moving on!!  And I hope you are enjoying it – so far!!! We’ve had some lovely skies for this time of year and I do hope you enjoy these!!

Resolve to keep happy and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.--Helen Keller

Happiness does not depend on outward things, but on the way we see them.— Count Leo Tolstoy

The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things.— Henry Ward Beecher

Tolstoy sure got THAT right!! Nice to see you are enjoying such lovely skies.

Merisi said...

Sylvia, these are all beautiful images, but the first one is out of this world!

Lowell said...

Okay, I'm going to be happy today if it kills me. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!

I figure you'd be OK with my weird sense of humor. :)

And like an old baseball player once said, "Keep swinging the bat, you might hit the ball!" Actually, I just made that up!

Many wise words, Sylvia and beautiful pictures. Happiness seems easy to come by at this time in my life. But it wasn't always so ... I wonder why. I would have to give it some thought. Thank you for your always uplifting thoughts and humor. You have no idea how often you make my day :)

Good.

Gemma Wiseman said...

Each sky so lovely. Especially love the last one with the wispy branches silhouetted against the sky. Lets always seek beauty for the soul even when the world seems to have lost its mind.

Sylvia, Your photos this week are just amazing. Fabulous captures. Love your sayings on "happiness"--we should take heed of all of them. Mickie :)

Lois said...

Wonderful quotes and pictures Sylvia and you do look quite happy in your header photo! It makes me smile.

Truer words never been said about happiness. Have a good evening Sylvia.

Beautiful views of the sky.

Gorgeous captures!

Al said...

Beautiful photos and great quotes. But I don't agree with today's quote of the day - "The days you work are the best ones" - after working all my life, the best days are the ones I have off, especially if I can spend them with family. Enjoy the rest of the week, Sylvia, and the dogs enjoyed their pats!

Happy New Year, Sylvia. Oh how I have missed visiting and blogging but I got caught up in the whirl of the holidays and travelling and packing and unpacking. Life just interrupted and so it is. So glad to be back!

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.
