And we're OFF...!!!!

It's December 21st, I'm not ready for the holidays, it is a whole whopping 2 degrees out (which calculates to a windchill of MINUS 30........wanna go for a walk???) and here I sit, trying to figure out not only how to put a blog together, but WHY I should do this venture.

We are recovering from an ice storm, which luckily didn't put this little square of earth in too much pain. I donned the rubber farm boots yesterday, took the camera out, and got some beautiful shots of the everyday and common things transformed into "Cold Miser's " Winter Wonderland.

The photo is of seedpods in my flowerbed---I couldn't get over how they looked like tadpole eggs! I will probably post a few more pics in the coming days since there are a few I find quite interesting, again, from trying to figure out what they are. Perhaps around July, when the weather is sweltering and miserable with humidity, I will appreciate these photos even more.
In the meantime, hope you'll come back and visit, comment, and see what useless drivel I can fill cyberspace with! I might actually get to the point where something on the page will have a bit of entertainment value.
But don't hold your breath........

Well, I for one am glad you started a blog. The photo of the seed pods is really kewl. Keep up the good work.

I'm disappointed that I didn't get to be your first comment, but my power has been out and just came on around 6:30pm Sunday. I can't believe you took this step! Does this mean I have to too? Congratulations! That photo, I was looking at it wondering what the heck it is and it does first look like frog eggs. It isn't horribly cold here but we have freezing rain too and nearly 2 feet of snow! Unbelievable! I have never seen anything like this! So beautiful but not normal for here. Looks like I'm in Yosemite or someplace. Hey, I will bookmark your site and check it out again. You better keep posting so I will have something to look at! It looks good so far!
