Sweet Disposition

"A cloudy day is no match for a sunny disposition."  William Arthur Ward

Happy Friday everyone who can resist a the fun of Sky Watch Friday and all those bloggers from everywhere showing off their patch of the sky.  Many thanks to our kind hosts who organise this weekly event. My view has been a bit overcast and wet most of the week.

Hi, Mandy! Sometimes we need those cloudy, overcast days to make us appreciate the sunshine more! The beach is still lovely! :-)

Buttermilk sky and water but both are very inviting. Very nicely done! Great quote too.

At least there is no snow! I think the day would have been great for walking on the beach!

Maria said...

I LOVE this quote as it is so rainy here and miserable. But I am feeling bright and cheery! Looking forward to catching up on all our posts.

Karine said...

Cloudy indeed, quite the contrast with your usual Skywatch photos, but very nice nonetheless :o)

Bill said...

Hi Mandy, Looks like you could do with some blue sky there too. Still looks great, though.

indicaspecies said...

Agree with Ward. Keep your cheerful spirits up and have a lovely SWF!

Interesting how overcast, cloudy skies can look so picturesque in a photo, yet dreary in real life!

Exactly Thanks for this drop of perfection.

Your chosen quote reminds us to take each day as its given.
It may be moody and gray but I'm for putting on a sweater and coming that beach for shells! :)
Have a great weekend Mandy!

Beautiful photo :)

Lorac said...

Even though it is wet, I still love this! I would gladly walk along that beach in the rain! It look so thought provoking and quiet. Great photo for SWF!

Japa said...

Must be a good day to wander about the beach. The wide swath of clouds are just passing by. Very nice sky photo.

Love your "Skywatch" photos. They give me a sense of calm and relazation... I love the collage you did with the photo. Very sweet..

Its So Very Cheri said...

I wanted to let you know some big news. My blog has moved to www.itssoverycheri.com
Please come over and RE-SIGN UP to follow me at the new site. Google does not allow you to take your followers. If you have already found the new site-sorry for the confusion. (Some don't have links set up so I can't see their blog, plus going back and forth between the 2 blogs...) I am trying to go back and forth between the old blog and the new, while I am getting through all my followers. I am super close to closing down my old blog.
I also have a new give-a-way that started yesterday.

A beautiful sky, and an enchanting primer with the little girl image! Thank you so much, Mandy, for taking part in the challenge! =) Have a wonderful day!

LiLi M. said...

What a beautiful horizon! Your altered book using the photo of the challenge is amazing. Too bad I didn't have time to create something with the photos, but the 'collecting' project I'm doing right now is more time consuming than I anticipated. Nice to meet you! Have a lovely day!

meandering pearl said...
