Cherry Blossoms

Personal blogging update at the bottom of this post.

The quad at the University of Washington offers late winter cherry blossom delights.

Laura had never been to the campus while the blossoms were in full bloom so we made a date to meet up and enjoy the blossoms together. Laura and I met up and drove to pick up Katie who lives 3 miles from the University.

The university is a jewel for the city of Seattle.

After we walked under all the trees we made a stop at Suzzalo Library specifically to climb up to the Reading room. I’ll share those photos on another day. We walked to the “Ave” for a bite to eat and then reversed our journey and parted company with separate to-do lists for the rest of the afternoon.

We are finding ourselves in a huge crunch time at this Old House and beyond. Between getting our house ready for the market and traveling to the northeast corner of our state to look at houses we might be interested in, purchasing and packing and sorting and trying to sell some items, I am finding less and less time for blogging. We are now looking at putting our house on the market in April instead of May. Yikes. If you don’t see posts or see comments from me you will know why. I’m hoping to post occasionally but I can’t link to memes because I can’t guarantee properly visiting other blogs that link up, too. Blessings…

  1. Hello, the blossoms are beautiful. Lovely collection of photos. Good luck with the sale of your home and finding another happy home. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

  2. Stunningly beautiful blossoms!! I love theses trees and the fruits they produce.
    Totally understand the loss of time for writing. Don’t worry about us here in blog land. Hope you find the right house for you to move into. And for a quick sale as well.

  3. I totally get it! Exactly two years ago, we were in the middle of all of that. I took a long blogging break because we were just sobusy. (That, and I could not focus my attentions on blogging!) Praying that all goes well for you as you walk this path!

    Gorgeous cherry blossoms . . . beautiful photos!

  4. Gorgeous photos! You know, we’ve lived here almost 30 years and I’ve never been to the UW when the trees were in bloom! I’ll miss your posts from this area but am praying your move goes smoothly.

  5. These photos are so beautiful. With snow on the ground here, etc., I just can’t quite wrap my head around spring happening other places! Don’t worry about commenting …. we get it. But we would like to know what’s going on with you, so post updates when you can!

  6. Such a magical place and so nice to share it with loved ones. I will be thinking of you as you embark on your new adventure and pray all goes smoothly as you search for your perfect new home. x K

  7. Wow those blossoms are gorgeous and to see so many at one time is awesome.
    As soon as we get in the new house we will be putting our house up for sale too. Probably sometime in May.

  10. Hi Ellen,

    This is a beautiful campus, and the cherry trees are just breathtaking!! What a lovely place to spend the day! Getting a house ready to put on the market is so stressful; I think we’ve all been there, done that. We’ll know what’s going on if we don’t hear from you for a bit. Will you be moving nearer to your precious granddaughter? I sure hope so!

    Have a great weekend, Ellen!

    Hugs to you,


  11. I so love cherry blossoms!

    Moving is one of the toughest jobs ever! May God give you extra strength and guide you to where He wants you to be.
