it's that time of the year!

So I'm off to go cranberry picking today. Hooray! We're going to bring a picnic along and slush among the leaves and lichen. It's kinda chilly and grey so I'm bundled up in my second-hand clothes to keep me warm - oversized jean jacket and fairisle sweater, hat and scarf. Mark said I was "going all fashionable". But it feels just right for picking. I want to be warm but I don't want to be so wrapped up in big clothing that I can't move - that crazy in-between time in the years' weather.
I took and posted this photo
last year but I'm bringing my camera today for some new photos. In spite of the overcast skies I hope I can capture some digital autumn. You'll be the first to know!

Wild Cranberries! How awesome.
I love your blog and how it gives me wonderful
insights into your life in the far north.
I look forward to many more.

So how many did you get. A whole bushell I bet. We went to look but couldn't find any. Oh well maybe next year.

Hello Jillian and Sonya - I'm glad you like this pic cuz me, too. It seems so woodsy and fairy-ish. It almost makes me feel like I live in a cabin on the edge of a wood and I wear clogs and every day I beat out the braided rug at the front door with my broom ... or something. :)

Hi Grandma Betty! How nice to see you again! I'm glad you like to come. I'm sure I will be writing lots more about the north ... to me the north is like a person whom I once found annoying but have now come to accept and appreciate and even love. When I write about it it helps me to understand this place a little better.

Hey Laurie! I'm sorry to hear you found so little. If it's any comfort we found very little ourselves. And what we did find was tiny. Very tiny. I hope to go again this next week sometime and discover a hidden patch somewhere.

Hi Yolanda! It was fun. Unproductive ... but fun. :)
