Day 8. National Blog Posting Month.


When I woke up yesterday morning, after the night from hell, I was stunned to see my driveway covered in leaves.

Fall has definitely arrived and it’s quite a lovely sight.

For weeks now we’ve been raking up leaves in the back yard.  The pear tree and lilac bushes shed their leaves fairly early in the season.  The neighbor’s oak tree in the front yard had yet to shed its leaves until a few days ago. That oak tree provides great coverage in the spring and summer but was quite the nuisance earlier this fall as it shed about a million acorns.  I’ve never seen so many acorns. Daughter collected a lot and made many crafts with them.

Anyway, looks like I’ll be spending the weekend raking oak leaves.
