Once a week we head out to tackle the leaves. This is week number four in the battle.
We use all the resources we have: the blower, the mower and the rakes. Yesterday The Mister decided we would rake them into piles and then drag them away on a tarp. I lasted five tarp fulls and......
....then got out the mower with the leaf attachment. Raking wasn't hard work. The leaves are dry and very light. It was just mind numbingly boring. I had most of the yard done in no time while he fooled around making piles.
It was a beautiful day and I had a good time. Seeing that there are still plenty of leaves still up there it's a good thing I'm enjoying all this. Let's just hope the weather holds.
We also got the outside kitty huts wired up for heat. It's still a bit warm out to fully enclose them which is good because it takes them a while to feel comfortable in them. I was very happy to see the elusive (spayed) mommy kitty jump out of her hut yesterday morning. I always sleep better when I know they are safe and warm at night. I wish they would come in but they won't so this is the best I can do.
Speaking of safe and warm, my reward for all that hard work was to build myself my first little fire of the year after dinner and sit outside and enjoy the beautiful night. It's been a long time since it was nice enough to venture out at night.
