EDDD 6; Even My Frogs Froze!

Sheesh, people! I finally fell asleep earlier and then got on the phone with my sweet sis and here I am with a pocketful of excuses. How’s that? I don’t like to waste your time just so I can meet my Every Damn Day December deadline, but here we are.

How about a photo, I never do those:>) Hey, at least it will be only a few wasted minutes, instead of me dragging this out….029 072

We are covered in snow and I will try to get out tomorrow for photos. BTW I did do a post earlier and forgot to put EDDD on it!

Peace out,

Patti

EDDD 3: Risk Driving Icy Roads In Pursuit of Happiness

My horoscope: Tuesday, December 03, 2013 “Positive thinking increases our chances for success now that the high-spirited Sagittarius Moon reminds us that we can be the masters of our own destinies. We may overextend our reach because our self-confidence spurs us on to greater possibilities. Thankfully, a cooperative alignment between talkative Mercury and assertive Mars motivates us to speak clearly about our intentions. We’re inspired to take a risk in the pursuit of happiness.”

My pursuit of happiness wasn’t really that big of a risk, but when I saw that we had our first overnight freeze, I knew I had to get my truck thawed and go take some photos! My tires only lost their grip on the icy pavement about 4 times. Just for a second. Then I channeled my Alaska family and I was fine. (Don’t tell my mom, she will hyperventilate.)
The sunrise cast everything in an orange glow, add the layers of frost, and it was a double dose of amazement. Did you really think I was going to write about writing? Or tell you some story? Nah, maybe when things aren’t as exciting outside. As if.

The biggest thrill was seeing the huge rolling waves and the way the weird orange glow made the driftwood and dune grass look. I was so startled by the beauty and power, I was exclaiming out loud. Freak! So glad that the gull was the only one in hearing range. That could have been embarrassing. Hey, maybe that’s why he wouldn’t talk to me…the gull, the one I posted on facebook..I’m so lost!
Who made this morning for me, sat this stunning driftwood art here, made these waves roll and crash behind it? I know it was the mermaids:>) PHALL PHOTO 2013

I am so not done…

Maybe one more and I’ll put the others on my photo site…

Okay, the last photo. The ones above were taken at Half Moon Bay, where the surfers usually are. Wait until I show them what they missed! It may be worth risking human contact to take a slide show down to the Mermaid Deli. Nah, then I’d have to learn how to make a slide show:>{

And the last photo is at frosty Bonge Beach in Grayland.

Did you notice the weather thingy I put on the site? If you want to be cool like me (total sarcasm) click on mine and get your own weather thingy. (That’s a technical term)

Thanks for tolerating me:>)
