I am so enjoying this mild fall weather, it has given my husband and myself more time to leisurely get the yard work done before the snow flies.
Today the sun was out and it got to about 60 degrees, that is incredible for Nov. 13Th.
We blew all the leaves out of the flower beds and I cleaned up all the wilted flowers and got hosta beds cleared out. Then Ray hopped on the Kubota and sucked up about a trillion leaves from the whole yard and for about 15 minutes we were ahead of the game, but alas our lovely ole' oak trees (we have about 8 of them) still have about a trillion leaves still on them so we will be repeating this scene again I'm sure.
While I was working away out there I was reflecting on the fact that today would have been my dad's birthday. He enjoyed going out to dinner, we would have done that again if he was still with us. This would have been his 85Th. He lived a full life and always said he did the things he wanted. I was remembering how he enjoyed the outdoors & often when I would visit him in the last years of his life I would find him sitting out in the sun in the back yard. His love for the sun and the outdoors is what finally did him in, he past away from melanoma. He is missed.
