catch up {snow}

Wow, I've really been falling behind lately. I started this blog in 2010 during a slow period in my work to occupy my mind and provide some routine. Of course, it has turned into much more than that--with all the amazing people who come to visit me here each week, the fabulous blogs I've discovered, and my re-ignited interest in photography.

Now, with work moving at full speed, I find myself with less and less time to come here to blog, to take photos, to visit all of you. But I am not giving up! I just need to keep working on the balance.  With that said, I was just going through some photos from our freak snowstorm a couple weeks ago. Better late than never, here are a few shots from that day...

I hope everyone is having a great weekend! I'll be coming around visiting you all later.

Such pretty snow! I can't wait to see more. :) I sure hope we get some this year...doesn't happen often here in SW Washington.

Bella said...

Oh.. wow. These are all so lovely.

Brigindo said...

I love these! Outside your window is just down the block from where I used to live. How I miss that neighborhood.

Fabulous photography - as always!

I understand what you mean about finding balance during the busy times in life... having a similar problem. Hard to believe that there is snow already - quite happy to have escaped the winter this year by heading down to Australia.

Anika said...

I agree! {and now, catching up on some blog reading, everyone has started by saying the same thing...it's in the air, busy busy!} Beautiful photos!

Such a pretty setting, snow in the city. I, too, am behind on my storm postings. I need to get a couple posted so I can get on with things.

Oh, I can so wait for any more of that white stuff. We're having a wonderful late fall ... beautiful this weekend.

Cheryl said...

It's so beautiful, isn't it? We had relatives visiting from California over the weekend and I thought for sure it was going to snow just for her, but it didn't. It just rained.

I can definitely relate, U.M...
please don't try to do too much...
I'd sure hate to loose your inspiring vision...

These are very nice, Christy.

I know what you mean about time and blogging. I'm finding it difficult to return comments right now. But like you, I will not give up... I just need to reconfigure some things. Have a great week! :)

Anna said...

Hi Christy,
It certainly can be hard to keep up with everything. That's why I'm mainly in blogland only at the beginning of the week.
You've captured the beauty of those early wet snows perfectly. They always make me feel like a kid again:) The last image is my fav. Just gorgeous, with an oriental feel!!!
Have a great week!

Oliag said...

It snowed one weekend and the next week I was taking photos of some kids swimming in the ocean! In November! Crazy!

I have never been able to find the balance in posting and commenting and participating in some link ups...if you find the balance let me know:)

My 3 year blogging anniversary passed without me posting for an entire MONTH. Kinda pathetic. But I'm dipping back in here and there, and finally getting around to visiting a bit too! I'm glad you're still here...

Kirstin said...

Balance. It's always about the balance. And quality, surely, rather than quantity.
These are gorgeous pictures, Christy. Love that one with the leaves covered in snow. x

Pieces of Sunshine said...

Your last photo is delightful! The snow and dripping melts along with the colour is gorgeous.

Talibah said...

Great work as usual!! I have also been away for a while so it is fun catching up with you!

Kat Sloma said...

It's really hard to balance it all sometimes. Love the snow!

Virginia said...
