Today is my day off. My plan for today was to be lazy... very lazy. I had my coffee. I had my computer. I think I'm still winding down from my trip to Indiana, PA to visit my daughter at her college. Work, that awful, terrible 4 letter word was NOT part of my agenda.
I was sitting here, catching up on my blog reading when I heard a noise. It sounded like a lawn mower. And it sounded like it was right outside my window. I get up and look and what do I see?? I see this....
This is my neighbor, Denise. She's a great gal, but she LOVES to work outside. She shows up at my house, usually when I'm not at home and does yard work. In my yard. Because she wants to. The woman is nuts!
So I feel guilty. I put some shoes on, grab my never-used gardening gloves ( have I mentioned that I hate hate hate gardening and yard work?). Denise is now raking the bazillion leaves that are in my front yard. This picture below is actually my side yard (I didn't think to grab my camera until we were nearly finished.). Picture this times 5. That's how many leaves I had in my yard that needed to be raked.
I made a quick run to the grocery store for lawn and leaf bags because we only had a few. We raked and bagged and raked and bagged and raked and bagged. THIRTY-ONE bags later, we're finished!!!
My back hurts, my legs hurt, my hands hurt. I'm gonna jump in a very very hot shower and use up all the hot water. Then John is going to take me out to dinner and alcohol will be involved. But my yard looks good!
Next week? Maybe the side and/or back yard will get done!
