i've been on the run for two days and will probably be on the run for a while as the workgroups gear up for a may 1st deadline. when i'm herding over 100 cats from group to group, i have to laugh at the questions i get (and the answers i can only say in my head). where do i park? (a parking space is generally good) do i have to feed the meters (well, depends - do you like parking tickets?) my name is not on the list (because you actually signed up for another group, not this one) you get my drift. so my photography has been mostly limited to quick morning shots with my sweet window light. (hope you're not tired of it anytime soon) i had a thought on the tip of my tongue but it suddenly slipped away. hate it when that happens. i'm sure i will remember it about 3:00 in the morning. i apologize for the lack of line spacing but blogger has decided if i hit return that it wants to put a 2-3 inch gap in the post. weird. i'm using the 'new, improved' editor but it still seems to have some kinks.
so....the weekend was good, the meetings are going well (in spite of the silly kinks and questions). i'm flying to dc on sunday for meetings all day monday and tuesday and flying back tuesday night. i have to lug the laptop so i suspect my dslr will get left behind. these are the days you love an iphone. hopefully the snow will let up before i arrive (otherwise it's dinner in the hotel). how i wish it was cherry blossom time so i could see that just once in person.
Well, at least you're managing to take a photo in the morning! There's been too many last minute photos literally at almost midnight) for me!ReplyDelete
Ahhhhh...you have many plates spinning. Enjoy the ride and keep taking those gorgeous morning photos... :)ReplyDelete
At least you're taking photos..if I'm busy my camera is forgotten...I love your shot..so peaceful and sweet...ReplyDelete
Don't forget to breathe while you're running around..;-) Hugs from Norway
Looks like you are going to have to simplify. =]ReplyDelete
Wow, Char! You sound indispensable already! But we already knew you were! :)ReplyDelete
I wish you could see the cherry blossoms, too. They are wonderful. Someday you will.
I for one enjoy your morning light,Char.ReplyDelete
I wish I had some ;)
and look at you...busy girl!
I love your sweet window light...just gorgeous.ReplyDelete
When you come to DC, you can borrow my DSLR...make sure you bring your snow boots, though - looks like it's going to be a whopper. If you get stuck, feel free to email me - I'll bring you some dinner!
Never tire of your morning-lit photographs, simply beautiful. Enjoy your trip, sounds like a whole latte fun :)ReplyDelete
oh lord....we would have so much fun working together, since I'm like you, wanting to answer those stupid questions just the way you said them....and then turning my head as to not crack up as I say something kind instead !!ReplyDelete
and hey....you working, me in the snow and cold...cripes, my camera is feeling a bit left out, too !
no worries though...we're here and loving what you give us !
love your "answers" and who could get tired of a lovely still life. Have fun in DC.ReplyDelete
i love your morning light shots. they are my favorite!ReplyDelete
blogger does weird things all the time. remember to take a little time for you.ReplyDelete
My sis lives in DC and has been telling me to come for cherry blossom season for the last 25++ years. Haven't been able to go once - I'm always a week early or a week late! THIS year!ReplyDelete
Now, back to herding those cats!
I had to laugh at your answers..! And I could never tire of your lovely photos, Char. I hope you have fun in DC... We lived there for a long time. It's a cool town - just brace yourself for traffic, if you're going to be driving. I hope not.ReplyDelete
Great shot! and I noticed your title..was someone having an REO Speedwagon moment?ReplyDelete
I LOVE your early morningReplyDelete

Have fun if you can on your trip and return safely to us! :o)
How are you? I haven't visited in sooooo long... sorry about that!
Good to hear you are working... I don't know when you started working... but that shows how long I have been away.
WOW... off to DC... you're right that would be FAB to see the Cherry Blossoms!
Hope all is well!
...You are flying right into that snowstorm!...bring a good book to read if you get held up in the airport:)...ReplyDelete
I have been fortunate enough to visit DC when the cherry blossoms were at their best one year...it was breathtaking and worth a trip...
boy, you must have the patience of a saint dealing with those dopey questions!ReplyDelete
i hope the trip to dc goes well. being there for cherry blossom times would be THE BEST. i hope to catch them someday in person. :)
Char...glad to see you stopped by and YES! your name is in the bucket..ReplyDelete
Safe Travels, my friend
morning light is the BEST time...enjoy your trip..you are working hard...glad for you friend!ReplyDelete
Wow, you are busy. It sounds like your mind is going all the time. Hope you get some time to relax.ReplyDelete
Love the light from your window. I like the way it shows all the old spots on the glass. It is the bane of my life, that I don't have one good picture takin window in my house!
Sounds like a bit of a hectic time for you char, but I think it's great that you're so busy. Enjoy DC, hope you get to see Obama!ReplyDelete
I don't know how you do it all.ReplyDelete
i love your early morning window light...it's just lovely. and...how you make sure to find time for it is very inspiring. i've been trying to keep that attitude toward it lately...just shoot. something. ;) have a safe trip. xoReplyDelete
Don't stop taking those shots! They are some of my favorites. Hope you have time for a moment or two of relaxation, my friend! xoxoReplyDelete
Darned editor... I'm thinking of going back to the old version.ReplyDelete

I hate it when Blogger misbehaves :0!ReplyDelete
Ah, well you need to come back for it, then and make a day of it.ReplyDelete
Safe journeys to you. I know I've wished that before but sometimes I get in the habit of repeating myself!
Blogger makes my line spaces huge to. I understand how annoying it is. I have reverted to HTML code for creating line spaces.ReplyDelete
Such beautiful soft window light you have...this photo is simply gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Wishing you well on your travels.
