Sweet Shot Tuesday

We got snow this week; woke up to white branches and a few inches and I realized that hat trick mother nature played the week before with that teaser of a 67 degree day now feels like a tortuous tease! (Say that sentence three times!)

I’m ready for Spring. If you live in one of those exotic places with palm trees and warm weather, I’ll have to live vicariously through your photos. For me and mine? We are feeling caged in!

Can’t wait to see what you’re up to. And as a teaser of a hint myself – I’ve got a big giveaway planned for March. If you haven’t subscribed yet – please do!


  1. I hope it’s okay that there’s more than just my ‘sweet shot’ on my post, I’ve just spammed the bejeebers out of my blog with photos from that shoot already, I didn’t want to make it four posts in a row! LOL

  2. i totally hear ya about the snow this week!! what a tease from nearly 70 degree weather last weekend!!!!!! can’t believe it’s already march though, crazy how time flies!! thanks for letting me link up!! 🙂

  3. I can so relate – except for us its rain, rain, and more rain accompanied by flooding along with flooding AND tornado alerts! My grandchildren currently have a mud pool in the back yard – great for hippos but not so hot for running activities for grandparents and grandchildren – so LOTS and LOTS of wiggles, and more wiggles, and MORE wiggles! We’re playing Simon Says a LOT, including plenty of “run in place” and hopping and marching, and their personal favorite, “dance on your hands.” (Grandma holds the legs while their hands dance on the floor. 🙂 ). I am definitely with you on looking forward to more permanent sunshine and blue skies. 🙂 But good news – the time change is on its way! YAY! Have a blessed day 🙂

  4. I know just what you mean! Bring on the Spring! We have had a few nice days thrown at us every week and we are delighting in them for sure : )

  5. I’m so with you! We have endured our first northern winter after living in Georgia for 20 years. It’s killing me to see my GA friends’ pictures of blossoming trees and kids out in shorts. Ugh! Oh, spring, where art thou??

    • Moving from warmer to colder would be hard! I hope you guys get warm weather soon, too.

    Hey, Darcy! I just wanted to ask if you might have thought about addressing the comment sections of blogs. I have seen you mention it before in one of your posts, discussing how hard some blogs are to comment on. I guess I wanted to mention it because I really want to leave comments, love, feedback for others but I often find that I can’t unless I have a special account. I don’t want to be a downer but people should understand that they are limiting feedback. And for me, I won’t bother going back if I see that I can’t comment. What’s the point if I can’t leave some encouragment.

    And I SO hear you about the weather. But we are seeing more sunshine, so I’ll take it!

    • I mention it on twitter regularly and the post – but without sounding like a broken record, I don’t know how many times I can mention it without sounding like a nag. (I don’t want that! I want people to get more comments!)

      But yes – making it easier to comment is always the best solution. Some people, especially those who don’t have WordPress, don’t have a way to filter spam though. So they won’t take off the captcha.

      It can be particularly frustrating during blog parties, since you try to visit many blogs and it can add a lot of time.

      The worst offenders are the one who have the hidden, pop-up captcha AFTER you’ve filled out the comment. I usually just leave. Many Blogger / Blogspot bloggers also have no way for wordpress.org users to leave a comment. We don’t have wordpress.com accounts and if they don’t have name / url as an option – then we are the anonymous “domain” comment.

      Not sure we can totally make it go away, but I’ll do my best to educate blogger on the best way for them to get the encouragement and feedback so many want!

        Thank you for mentioning those thoughts here and for educating me on how all of it works for bloggers. I don’t blog (I’m a chicken) and didn’t know any of those limitations. I have seen the hidden, pop-up captcha and I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one who just leaves.=)

        BTW, when do we get to see the finished studio?

  7. What a great link up. I added my “arms length” self portrait that I took this weekend. I’m allergic to having my picture taken and I’m trying to get over this by doing a weekly self portrait. This week “arms length” inspired by a fellow photography blogger.

    Thanks for allowing participation in your link up!


  8. warm days and cold days and tornado warnings… but the flowers are bursting from buds now… can’t wait. hope you and your family are feeling better.
