Dear Diary (Haahaha),
My horoscope for Wednesday, Dec 4th, 2013 “Although you might think about ways to minimize your heavy workload today (oh yes I did!), someone else (my neighbor, Greg) may successfully convince you to reconsider your plans. Taking time to reevaluate your current motives (stay in the cave and be anti-social or spend quality time with a neglected friend) is a good idea, but don’t get duped into doubting your ability to make the right decision (no duping involved). Remember, people (Greg & Gertrude) are counting on you. Nevertheless, listening to your instincts now is smarter than solely relying on others for guidance.”
Luckily, my instincts jived perfectly with Greg’s
guidance flippin’ great idea for the day. Unfortunately, I have to finish reporting yesterday’s photo journey before I can tell you about today’s adventures into the wilderness.
If you’ve never seen cranberry bogs, well okay, no big deal, but you NEED to see them with a coat of winter frost and snuggled next to this velvety green grass berm and…
And you NEED to see the frosted cranberry bogs rolling up to this aging little white shack. I think it is a pump house to control the bog water. I NEED to go back to the museum and get the details:>)
The sun has touched this part of the bog with a warm kiss…the mossy shack looks at its spiffy neighbor and thinks he’d rather be torn down than look like that!
Of course it could be worse…
…or there’s that lucky shack down the road that has a POND! And a DUCK!
Just a couple more frosty shots on the same road…
I truly fell in love with this scene…the magnificent old tree, the tree swing and the bird bath, all slathered in moss and frost…the house is cool too:>)
Last photo, no frost; these gulls were hanging out on the roof of the post office waiting for their airmail–bwahhhhaaa!
Tomorrow I’m not stepping out of the cave. I have to put a stop to posting about the day before! I will load all the photos to my photo blog, swab the cave decks and maybe even write a little:>) Sent my old crashed laptop to the hospital today. I hope it can be brought back to life, because this one is driving me crazy with its sloooooow response.

I love our cranberry bogs. They are so RED 🙂

I love them too and the mossy shacks add enough interest to make me detour down the side road to see them every so often.

Gorgeous! I had forgotten that years ago I read about those bogs and wanted to visit. I’m glad I got to see them vicariously anyway.

Me too. Thanks for stopping by, Linda.

I have never seen a real cranberry bog. That is a lovely shade of reddish purple.

They are pretty. I had never seen them until I moved here.

Nice memories, I loved the bogs and the harvest time and events….

You will again some day, I hope! xo

Patti they are beautiful, but the first one with frost takes the cake! 🙂
December 6, 2013 at 9:22 pm
Thanks for stopping, Debby. I must say that the frost ones are my favorites. I think my header would qualify as Chrismassy, don’t you? Green & red…I’m practically jolly here!

Definitely the Christmas header! Patti you are jolly! You spread compassion and smiles, that’s why I love following you, sometimes you crack me up also, love it. :)xo

Glad to spread around the good stuff, plenty enough folks to doing otherwise. Your “cracking up” always cracks me up! :>) xo

I want to go on a photography trek with you!
December 6, 2013 at 9:52 pm
Me too you!
December 19, 2013 at 2:26 pm
I don’t know which is greater — your talent for writing or photography!
December 19, 2013 at 3:11 pm
And I haven’t even paid you this month! :>)
I read that and it gave me such a surge of happiness…THANK YOU!
