Leaves , Leaves & More Leaves !


Yup that’s most of what we have been doing this weekend , cleaning up leaves .  Papa had Friday off and we did , well … leaves lol then yesterday as it was a rainy day we  went to town did a bit of shopping then came home and relaxed . Today turned out to be a lovely day after the cloud disappeared and we did  … Yup  you guessed it more leaves . this time Miggs didn’t play in the leaves as we didn’t pile them up like we usually do , I just blew them with the leave blower into rows and Papa went over them with the tractor and scooped them up into the baggers and then go rid of them .  My  tractor Betsy and I were working  with the trailer dumping leaves  but Betsy is a little off as she may need to get a belt replaced and her gears are a little sticky  so she is out of commission  for now  . I just realized we are almost at the end of October  I cant believe we are going into the last week of October already .

Friday I had a camp fire going as I love the smell of wood smoke as we are out there and it helps to burn up some old wood that cant be burnt in the wood stove in side !

Papa went up onto the porch roof to get the leaves off of it as it makes a mess on the roof from our big old tree and the leaves  rot on there  if left  , which is not good for the shingles .

Miggs was puttering more today as the cooler damp air has been  making her stiff and ache a bit more all though she needs to learn to slow down and take it easy and not chase after critters as much when  she is sore and achy lol !

                  Lots of trees in the valley are bare now , I think all their leaves end up on our lawn , seems like it lol ! I think we will have one or two more leaf clean ups then that should be that for the season .

All done for the day now , it is late afternoon and I will be putting our Sunday roast of beef in the oven for supper  , having veggies and roast potatoes with it and gravy YUMMY !  This time of year and through out the winters Sunday dinners are a roast of some kind with all the trimmings  then a nice Cuppa tea and maybe a sweet treat  then relax for the evening  with full tummies .


                                                                    Until next time .

Just when you think you've got all the leaves, some more drift down or drift in from someplace else. Good to get all the roof and eaves cleared. The end of October, wow ... got granddaughter's birthday and Hallowe'en on Saturday. She gets to have her party on the actual day this year. Exciting for a 6 year old.

Still gotta do that leaf thing here- hoping tomorrow's a good day for it.

That is a lot of work to do, and I've no doubt you enjoyed that delicious dinner, that I hope included a special treat with that cuppa tea afterwards! :-)

you certainly have got your work cut out for you sucking up all those leaves.
