Our World

Happy Monday and welcome to Our World!!
Time to share the fun, the beauty, the good, and the bad and whatever else fills Your World!!
We’ve actually had a “little” sun for the past two days and it has been glorious after the weeks of daily rain!! Amazing amounts even for the Northwest US!!  And because of our extra wet weather for so long, I haven’t been able to get out with my camera so I hope you won’t mind some from a trip I made to Seattle a couple of months ago.
Wishing all of you a wonderful new week, with lots of beauty and laughter!!! Enjoy!!
“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”
Edith Sitwell

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America

“A cold wind was blowing from the north, and it made the trees rustle like living things.”
George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

Beautiful photos - I especially like the one of the snow-capped mountains across the water. I think they might be part of the Olympic Mountains??? Thanks for sharing. Keep warm and dry!

A very little sun is better than nothing. Actually that is about what we have had here in Florida this past week; it is much rainier than usual (and as you know only too well we could have had that kind of weather if we'd stayed in Oregon). Again, as always your archive pictures are so beautiful; of course I don't mind seeing them, they cheered me up. And also again, as always, thank you for hosting both of my favorite memes.

Beautiful shots Sylvia! I love seeing the tree silhouettes against the sky.

Beautiful photos, Sylvia. Seattle is one of my favorite cities, but I think the grey, rainy winters would get to me - I love my winter sunshine. I hope you have a great week!

Beautiful world !

Lowell said...

So good to hear the ol' sun decided to shine once again up that away. And your photos of Seattle are always welcome. I've never thought it mattered one bit when a photo was taken. If you've got some good ones of 20 years ago, post 'em!

These are good ones. Hope you enjoy your day!

Your world is beautiful every day of the year, rain or shine. The mountains in the background are just heavenly. All are so pretty.

I loved reading Steinbeck when I was in high school. Maybe I should revisit him. Coming from California the books always felt like home. - Margy

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.
