I visited some of you all yesterday. Unfortunately I didn't get my post up. I had started at about 9:30 in the morning raking leaves in the front yard, and the next door neighbor was so gracious and brought his leaf mulcher over. He had 3/4 of the leaves picked up and mulched by the time I had 10 bags of leaves raked and picked up. he put all the mulched leaves in a pile then all I had to do was put them in a bag. Mulching eliminates about half the amount of bags and it makes so I didn't have to do all that raking. I ended up with 25 bags in the front yard and then I got started on the backyard. Growing up we would take a flat sheet and lay it on the ground and rake all the leaves onto the sheet. It saves so much time picking up and i can get about 3 wheelbarrow loads on the sheet at one time. I am walking like an intoxicated santa but at least it is quicker. After about 15-20 of those loads I called it a day, plus it was dark so I couldn't see where to rake anymore.
This morning I awoke feeling every fiber of muscle that resides in my body and they are all screaming at me for hurting them soooooooo much. Well boo hoo but I am taking a few tylenol and going back out in a bit to get it done before bad weather hits us. My husband should love me lots by then!LOL!
I am meeting with my friend tonight to finish a scrapbook for the baby shower we are doing on Sunday for a friend. We still need to get the grocery shopping done for it and then tommorrow we will do the cooking and hopefully have a great time on sunday. I guess that means I better clean my house as well since it will be here. HUH?
As you can see I have many tasks and better get to them, have a great weekend, Christina
