Tie me down! We are blowing away over here!! Ok, so obviously I need to watch the weather reports a bit more. I spent ALL day Saturday raking, mowing and doing a seasonal change chore day. I used the leaf blower, cleaned out what was left of the garden, cleaned out the shed, overall I went to bed feeling pretty darn achy, but I gave myself a pat on the back for how good things were looking. Literally, I laid in bed and patted my shoulder- my Hubby was a bit curious about what that was all about, but I knew and that's all that matters. (Sometimes I think it's good to keep him guessing!) Wouldn't you know, just my luck, that night we were under a wind advisory! A WIND ADVISORY- C'MON- Who advises the wind anyways, why do they call it that? I officially nominate myself to advise the wind-
"Wind" I say loudly out the back door (back door so the neighbors don't think too weirdly of me)
"Wind, I advise you to blow all the leaves to the front curb, right where I left them, otherwise you will be spending some time in the naughty chair!" (works for the kids, worth a shot right?!)
"I am also requesting that you gather the leaves that have since fallen off the trees and bring them to the front yard as well. Thank you so kindly!"
Ok, so maybe that's a bit far fetched, but C'MON- I just raked them all and dumped them all. What's the point. I have now as of this minute decided that I vow to NOT rake, not one single leaf ever again...well at least not till every single leaf is off the trees, then I might rethink this a bit and venture back out there, drag the rake out, the leaf blower and tackle it all over again. Hey at least it's worth another pat on the back and a chance to again make my Hubby turn his head and look at me quizzically! Hee Hee Hee, oh the joys! So for now, this is me signing off...NOT RAKING!!
