Sky Watch Friday!

Happy Thursday!!  Time to share the beauty of our skies!! I’m definitely looking forward to seeing some of your beautiful skies because ours here in Oregon have been and are GRAY!! And no end in sight right now!! Well, I have to admit that while the skies are still gray, at least the rain stopped long enough this afternoon for me to make it to the bank and to purchase some groceries!! Fortunately for me, both Safeway and the bank are only a block from my apartment!!  But at least our temperatures have been quite mild in spite of the rain, so I’ll stop whining about the weather and share some photos showing you how dramatic our skies can be and usually are!!
I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend and that your new year is off to a great start!!  Mine definitely is and after all these years I’m enjoying being a “grandma” and I’m looking forward to the trip to Dallas, Texas that my son is planning!! And, yes, I am SO excited!!
Enjoy your day!!

Beautiful skies indeed and I didn't join SWF this week because our skies (here in Florida) have been gray and cloudy this week. A little depressing, because I might as well be in Oregon if it is going to be gray. Oh well, we can't do much about the weather.

You are going on a trip? I am so happy for you.

Those clouds in your third picture are so pretty. I seldom see them like this here. The other two photos are beautiful, but this one is out of this world.

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.
