We had a pretty busy weekend, with the garage project, celebrating my birthday and trying to collect and bag the leaves that decided to fall in huge amounts during Friday night’s storm. My plan for Sunday was to complete one simple task, dig a hole for another 10” concrete pier and fill that hole with concrete. I was planning to collect the leaves on Monday afternoon, after I got home from work.
Unfortunately, the weather forecast changed those plans, when it included many rainy days and measurable snow later in the week. Since Monday appeared to be the only nice day we might get this week, I decided to take the day off and make a start on that long wall of siding. Unbeknownst to me (I love being able to use unbeknownst), The Editor was secretly planning to rake the leaves on Monday.
While it is well known that Faith enjoys using the leaf-blower (perhaps a little too much), I didn’t expect her to offer to help me with the leaves on Sunday before going to dinner. When I suggested that there was no need to work toward perfection, because a lot of leaves are still in the trees, she seemed disappointed.
“You can’t make them fall faster!”
Faith and I tag-teamed the back yard for 11 bags of leaves, and The Editor added 6 more on Monday.
