Wanna see my sky? Better yet, do you want to see skies from around the world? Then visit Skywatch Friday to find hundreds of links to gorgeous photos.

My photo was taken last year when my husband and I went on a weekend get-away to the coast. On our way home I talked him into trying to find the old house my father grew up in and which my grandparents lived in from the 1930's until 198o. Grandpa has been gone since 1981 and Grandma has been gone since 1992. I love these pictures, not only because of the subject, the house where my memories of my grandparents are tied to, but also because of the sky.

What an adorable house. They don't build them like that any more. And I love the corner of blue sky and the way the sun shines on the face of the house. Very nice. Happy memories.

That is a lovely little house, and I like how the sky is both cloudy and clear, a little sad and a little glad. Good for poignant memories.
