It is a pretty day here in the Bogs. Mostly sunny with occasional snow squalls. I like watching the squalls move in on big, fluffy clouds of white and gray and blue.

The beautiful weather we’ve been gifted with here in the Bogs is now giving way to rain. The rain, so they say, will be with us until Wednesday when it might turn cold enough to become snow showers. The sun will return on Thursday, but the warm temperatures will leave with the rain. I’m sorry to have missed out on the beautiful-weather activities I could have been engaged in over the past few days. A hike in at a nearby state park. A last bike ride until next spring. The never-ending garden chores. That’s life. Sometimes rest and taking care of oneself is the order of the day. Or days in this case.

See, if you can, eternity in the hour that passes.
~ Arabian proverb
My blogs posts are probably going to consist of little more than photos soon. It’s a busy time of year for me here in the Bogs. On top of the usual things that keep me busy throughout the day, I’m sorting through photos, working in the garden when the weather permits, and taking advantage of shopping locally by preserving the summer harvest through canning and freezing.
In the meantime, enjoy the photos.

Time is but a stream I go a-fishing in. I drink at it, but when I drink I see the sandy bottom and detect how shallow it is. Its thin current slides away but eternity remains.
~ Henry David Thoreau
The music. Because it’s been a while.
