Sky Watch Friday

Time to share the beauty of our skies for the week!!  I do hope you are enjoying great weather like we are here in Portland – probably wishful thinking for many of you, but I would send some of ours if I could!!! We’re actually having a little of everything, but the temps are mild whether the skies are clear or cloudy!! These are some of the cloudy, but still beautiful ones!!
The sky is that beautiful old parchment in which the sun and the moon keep their diary. ~Alfred Kreymborg
There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds. ~G.K. Chesterton
Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love, to work, to play, and to look up at the stars. ~Henry Van Dyke

Wonderful shots of your skies again, Sylvia.
We've had some nice skies too, but with maximum temperatures around 10-12 degrees it's still cold in the Netherlands.
I hope you're having a wonderful weekend.

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.
