As I was raking the leaves yesterday afternoon, I remembered how fun it was when my Dad would rake the leaves to form walls for me to play in. I did that yesterday thinking of Emma and how when she’s a bit older she will enjoy playing in the leaves. They smell so sweet.
My main concern was to get them off the sidewalk in case it would snow. I hadn’t checked the forecast, but sure enough about an hour later the white stuff started to fall. By the time I raked, used the blower over the gravel areas, and bagged I was ready for a nap. We only got three large bags filled. Here’s what it looks like this morning.
It won’t get done today, but maybe this weekend the rest of the leaves will fall and I can get it all bagged up. I do wish we had a city service with would come and vacuum up piles of yard debris, how easy that would be!
