Leaves, leaves and more leaves.
Holy Moly do we have leaves at the new house.
One day I spent 4 or more hours picking up leaves (really fight with the lawn mower because every 2 minutes or so the shoot would get plugged up). And I broke the leaf blower. It wasn't a good day.
I decided that there were way to many leaves so I was just going to have to rack.
So I racked up a big pile and let Matthew play in it.
Matthew played his little heart out in the leaves even after dark.
A week or so later, I racked the whole yard of leaves into small piles. Man did I have piles!
It took me all day to rack everything into piles and then another 1/2 day to move the piles (Thank goodness I had help moving the piles otherwise I would have been at it for a whole day!) Did I hear you say that you wanted to see our yard? Ok since you asked so nicely.
Here is a picture of it the day we bought it:
And here are some recent ones:
Looks different doesn't it? The house does anyway.
We had to completely redo the exterior including the roof, windows (except 2 that we have to do next year) and whole exterior had to be redone to get rid of the mice invasion (I'll tell you all about that in another post).
