Yard work.....

So why is it that leaves never go away. I have raked those darn leaves at least 5 times between fall and spring each time filling a ton of bags with leaves and assorted yard wastes.  So today I go out to trim some shrubs and low and behold..........LEAVES!  Now I know the last time I raked those leaves, I ended the day thinking they all were gone...so what happened!  I know they must hang from the trees waiting for me to finish and then they gleefully drop back down.  I love trees but these days at my age I'm thinking that I should just take most of them down in the yard. It's such a job to keep up with.


 


The good news of today is that that lousy 30 year old lawn mower finally died. Hurray.....I hate that thing. It was so hard to start. I just couldn't do it myself. I'd usually get a neighbor help me with it. I may have inavertantly killed the darn thing. Glenn mentioned one of the gas containers has motor oil in it. He asked me when was the last time I put gas in it and that if someone had used the wrong container and put oil in the gas, it would have ruined the engine....so why didn't he tell me that years ago? I'd have killed it then! LOL  Now we have a NEW easy to start lawnmower.


 


Anyway so this handpainted wine glass from my etsy shop reminded me of this little story.  There's 2 in the etsy shop. Here's the link: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=19995192

LOL at your story. Joann, lovely wine glass. I know how you feel about those leaves, I am glad most of our trees are evergreen.
