Snow Day

February 26, 2010 at 12:03 AMJeremy

This week we got a real, honest-to-goodness snowfall.  In this area, that's a pretty big deal.  I can count on one hand the number of times it's snowed more than just a light dusting.

It looked like it was going to get serious, so we actually got sent home from work.  I was eager to give Jonathan a chance to play out in it.

We didn't actually have any gloves or mittens for Jonathan, so he just wore a pair of socks on his hands.  He wasn't out long before he started looking pretty cold, but I think he enjoyed it while he was out in it.

Lack of Posts

January 19, 2010 at 4:01 PMJeremy

Yes, I'm still here.  A confluence of events (a perfect storm, if you will) has caused me not to post anything for a while:

  • Good intentions.  I had a bright idea mid-November to build an easier way for me to post a lot of pictures at once, but I haven't gotten around to implementing it yet.  This caused me to miss a few picture-heavy posts like Halloween and the Baylor Homecoming parade.
  • Work got in the way.  I had a big project due at work that's been occupying a lot of my computer time, and had me working from my work laptop rather than my home one (speaking of which...).
  • My home laptop stinks.  It's slow and the screen is such pitifully low resolution that I don't bother having it as part of my photography workflow (I organize, delete, and retouch my photos in Adobe Lightroom on my desktop PC [and then...])
  • My main desktop PC is inconvenient.  If I go back into the office/guestroom, I'm cut off from everybody else.  That also literally opens the door for little hands to fiddle with things they shouldn't (like Marci's sewing stuff).  Moreover, my desktop, being my most powerful workhorse, is generally tied up rendering videos for church when I do have a chance to use it.
  • Christmas just happened.  What can I say?  I got a lot of cool video games for Christmas; if I'm not working, houseworking, or church-working, I've got a big backlog of games to get through: Mirror's Edge, Modern Warfare 2, Arkham Asylum, Bionic Commando, Portal, Metroid Prime 2, Mega Man 9.  (I'm not counting Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks or Scribblenauts as those are portable games that I play when I would not otherwise be in front of the computer or TV). Not only that, but the trappings of the holiday itself took up some time - I took down my Christmas lights on New Year's Day and didn't get stuff put back in the attic until last weekend.
All that said, I will try to take some time to post more regularly.  Things have slowed down at work, and I'm knocking stuff out around the house, so I expect I'll be able to resume blogging at some point soon.

Snow on Leaves

Blink and you would've missed it. It came down pretty good, but didn't stay for long.  (Apologies: picture is straight out of the camera, not processed.)
