This bathroom is located just off the upstairs master bedroom in the main house at Goodwood. Just look at that gorgeous tub! I apologize for not visiting and commenting on my friends' blogs this week. I am trying to get over an awful cold.

I took this picture right after I snapped the one I posted last Wednesday here. This gazing ball is located directly in front of the main residence at the Goodwood estate. There I am standing under all of those beautiful moss draped trees with the house behind me. I plan on posting more pictures of the inside of the house this week. By the way, there is another reflection of yours truly in the first picture of my post from last Thursday here. I didn't even notice it until I went back and enlarged the picture today. To see more beautiful reflections from around the world, don't miss Weekend Reflections.

This group was gathered in front of my local branch library and community center getting ready to board the bus. I'm not sure why the camera tripod was set up. Maybe they had taken a group picture as they were leaving an event. The first day of the month is Theme Day in the City Daily Photo community and you can see more pictures featuring this month's theme here.

I was standing in the south parlor of the main residence at the Goodwood estate (see yesterday's post) looking through the pocket doors into the north parlor when I took the first picture. The second shot is an old framed black and white picture that was sitting on a desk in the parlor. It shows a previous resident sitting in front of those same pocket doors reading a book.

This is the main residence of the historic Goodwood estate. There is quite a bit of fascinating history surrounding this place and you can read to whole story here. After years of just seeing the exterior, I finally got the chance to wander around inside this gorgeous old house, which has been beautifully restored. I'll post some pictures of it in the coming days.

This is another picture from my winter vacation in Chicago the week before Christmas. My oldest grandson was a little concerned when he first saw these signs on the sidewalks, but he soon got used to them. I did actually get hit by a small piece of falling ice right before I took this picture, but that was the only time. This was my grandson's first time seeing snow and he got to see a lot of it. He made quite a few snow angels when we were playing in the park, but didn't manage get the hang of making a good snowman. Maybe next time!

The reflection of the American Flag can be seen in the marble wall of the Florida Vietnam Veterans Memorial across from the Capitol Building in downtown Tallahassee. The names of veterans from Florida who were killed during this conflict are engraved on the inside of both walls facing the flag. To enjoy more beautiful reflections from around the world, be sure to visit Weekend Reflections.

The dome of Florida's historic old Capitol is shown to the right in the picture with the tower of the newer Capitol building sitting behind it. You have to look closely to see that there are some birds circling the tower and also a small jet contrail. To view more wonderful skies from just about everywhere, don't miss SkyWatch Friday.
