Goals & Plans

Without goals, and plans to reach them, you are like a ship that has set sail with no destination.” Fitzhugh Dodson

Happy Sky Watch Friday where 100s of bloggers from all over the world share their view of the horizon in its many moods and flavours.   Weather’s been a bit wild around here but I like having plans, including finding a photo to share. Have a great weekend. 

Am busy getting ready for Thanksgiving and sharing a quick peek at a favourite little journal recycled from lots of bits & pieces.  For my Aussie friends check the link to Scrapbook Ideas magazine to complete a survey on what you like to see and a chance to win a subscription.   

Or how about a fun creative give a way linked here with Prudence or Sarah's give away linked here.

I would love to walk there, just at that moment -- me and the seagull! There's something magical about the surf, empty beach and mystical clouds. Oh, yeah, I know I'm a hopeless romantic, but such a gorgeous capture does inspire!! Have a wonderful weekend, Mandy!

Mandy, this looks so inviting and right now would be such a nice day to walk along such a sweet shore line. Nothing inspires so much than a walk in the woods, or a beautiful shoreline for me. Have a wonderful weekend~

That is a good one.
My feet are itching to get out on that sand. Haven't been near the sea for ages. It looks so lovely and empty and clean.

I love this picture. It's been so long since I walked on sand like that, with only seagulls for companions.

wonderfully composed, - the seagull seems part of the sea and the sky - the colours blend so beautifully.

I can never get enough of the beach, sun, rain or snow.

What a lovely photo. It looks so inviting and who doesn't enjoy the beach. I love the serenity of it. Thank you very much for stopping by my blog and leaving me a sweet comment. I am your newest follower. I hope you will follow me as well. Happy Thanksgiving! Linda

Hi Mandy, great quote and so right. I feel a lot like that though... Just drifting along. I've got to get it together next year. Sometimes I feel my husband and I just work but we're treading water, not achieving much at all... Maybe the goals need to be super small. Your photo fits the quote so well. I love the beach when it's like this. Hope you have a good weekend. Pruxxx
