Wander With Me

Wandering re-establishes the original harmony which once existed between man and the universe.
(Anatole France)
Today has been absolutely gorgeous.
Blue skies without a cloud in sight.
Perfect weather for getting out and about.
Wandering up and down the streets of the neighborhood.
Looking for spots of beauty along the way.
I so appreciate homeowners who have green spaces around their properties as it makes my walks so much more enjoyable.
And as I wander up and down each street, there's always something new and wonderful to see.
 
Those who contemplate the beauty of the Earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.
(Rachel Carson)

Happy New Years Eve!

Thank you for taking me on a walk with you, Tammy :-) It's in the 30s and gray today so it's nice to be taken somewhere warm and sunny. I like your shoes :-)

I enjoyed my warm walk with you Tammy, especially since it's -6F on our deck right now! And the pink tennis shoes are perfect.
Blessings,
Betsy

Dearest Tammy,
Since you are already ahead of us; Happy New Year to all of you!
What a precious day in sunshine and with blue sky; exactly what we have today as well!
Yes, looking around we only can count our blessings if we enjoy nature!

You are so right...it's a beautiful day there! Here not so much...cold and dreary but that's "cozy" in my world and I love those days too for baking, candles, a warm fire, needlework....each type of weather has it's advantages.
I love the beautiful sidewalks and plants so different from ours. The quotes are "spot on"! Happy New Year to you and your family.

I just caught up on your last few posts and I'm living vicariously through you with your beautiful weather! If anything below 70F feels cold to you now, you'd be totally frozen here in IL right now. It's -1F with the wind chill factor. Glad you had a nice time in Dubai - I've heard it's an amazing place to visit.

I like your purple shoes on the handsome tiles. You might like a book I bought titled Wanderlust. I think the subtitle is A History of Walking. Happy New Year.

Lorrie said...

Happy New Year, Tammy. I enjoy the sights you share on your wanders. May 2015 be filled with much more wandering.

Kit said...

Wow! Loving your shoes! And of course your lovely walking tour. Happy New Years! Kit

What a lovely walk you had.. I adore palm trees. You are lucky to have those tropical plantings to enjoy.

I love how vivid the colors in the photos are.

And I love that quote because I too love to wander and this speaks of the truth.

May you never lose your sense of wander this year. :)

I really needed to see all of that green today....it's only in the 20s here, and very windy!
Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year, filled with good health and great happiness!

The Anatole France quote defines something I've often felt but never put into words :)
