Cranberry Conversation

After supper youngest daughter and I went cranberry picking in the bush behind the house. In our favorite cranberry picking spot in the boggy pine forest along the rim of the ravine, the berries were big and beautiful, but not plentiful.

"Mom! No one uses the word plentiful anymore!"

"You mean plentiful is archaic?" I asked.

"Exactly! And the word archaic is obsolete, too."

We did find plentiful patches later in the bush in front of our house and picked a bucket of berries there.


Perhaps we'll have cranberry muffins for breakfast tomorrow.
