December 1st

Today is the first day of December. A day when I should be getting the Christmas things out of the attic. A day when I should be thinking about shopping for all the gifts I need to purchase. A day when I should be getting out the Christmas cards and getting them in the mail. A day that I should be doing all kinds of things that need to be done for the upcoming holidays.

Instead, I have spent the majority of the afternoon RAKING LEAVES ! I don't have any trees in my yard - the little Japanese maple in the front yard doesn't really count. Damn that stuff called wind. Everyone that has a tree in their yard, also has a clean yard. Just not fair !! The hell with bagging them up and putting them out at the curb .... I just pushed them all into the woods (what little there is left) behind my townhouse. Let the wind blow them somewhere else!

AND NOW, I am too damn tired to do anything else ..... and I have boo boos on my thumbs. (I forgot to put on gloves).

Have a wonderful weekend.

I came back from my holiday to find my garden full of leaves but it's been raining a lot so that's my excuse for not clearing them!

Raking leaves? We have about 2 inches of snow here and I've been out shoveling the sidewalks. No blisters, but I think my ears are frozen to the side of my head. I do believe a pity party is in order for all the snow shovellers and leaf rakers of the world :o)

oh man...we should finish raking before the big snowstorm hits! The ground is too frozen though:( Bummer! Guess there will be some spring raking. Hope you got some rest and your boo boo's heal quickly.

Hey! We don't have trees in our yard either but have raked leaves several times now.

It sucks.

Hope you had a good weekend.

I hate raking leaves too! I hope the boo-boos get better soon.
