The Morning After

Good morning, everyone, and happy Sunday!

We're a little stiff and sore this morning, from yesterday's unaccustomed activity. But nothing that ibuprofen can't handle. I think.

Now that we've had a couple of rain-free days, the back yard is finally dry enough to mow. And there's a fairly substantial carpet of leaves on the driveway which will require the services of a leaf-blower. Have I mentioned the driveway is roughly 270 feet long?

The newly rocked-in area looks nice, and has changed the appearance of the front yard from "barely reclaimed from the forest" to "somebody lives here and is taking care of the place." I'll get a picture of it today, to show before-and-after shots in a later post.

Anyway, it's time for another cup of coffee. We've only just now gotten both eyes open and focused at the same time.

Have a wonderful day, my friends; thanks for stopping by.

I do miss Alaska.

Hope you have a blessed day. Have fun leaf-blowing!

Hope the leaf blower is more powerful than the local wind... sigh

Thanks, Linda. The leaves are still wet underneath, so not all of them cooperated. But it's better than it was!

NFO, I bought a 210 mph blower, just for this place. It's stronger than the wind, but outnumbered by dozens of very large northern birch. And the wind is persistent, to say the least.

LindaG said...

Wow. 210 mph? Be sure it doesn't blow you, over!, haha. ^_^

I like! Looks great. Love the way you went around the trees there.

Linda, it does want to twist a bit, when on high roar, but I've survived thus far. :)

Thanks, Marianne. Glad you like it.
