I took a vacation day today. Mostly because I wanted to get the kids where they need to be for trick or treating tonight, but also partly because I can no longer put off the painful deed…
My nemesis must finally be dealt with.
I dropped the kids off at school. Went home and made a little breakfast (and goofed around on the internets for a little bit) and then went outside to tackle the mountain of leaves in the front yard.
Two hours and one huge honkin’ mother of a blister between my thumb and first finger on my left hand later…
We really need to re-seed next Spring, eh? Also, that tree is probably ready to be taken down. I love it, but it looks about 66% dead.
Notice, of course, that I am only showing the front of the house. I have gone to great lengths to not show the opposite side of the driveway because… well… I still have about 1/3 of the Nemesis left to deal with. That’s going to have to wait until the weekend. Sorry.
I wonder what kind of animal living in the back yard wild kingdom left this behind? Probably one that just had a baby girl.
