So yesterday we decided that most of the leaves have fallen (say, 90+ percent) and so we attacked the lawn portion of the front yard with a leaf blower and a rake.
Eighteen 50-gallon bags of leaves later, we had a two-layer pickup truck load of yard waste bags to haul to the landfill.
This morning, we played hooky and did the same thing to the back yard. Only 12 bags this time.
This afternoon, we'll mow the backyard one more time, and then that's about it for the year. We also plan to inaugurate the fire pit which we so lovingly built several months ago, and have never used.
But first, I'm taking my lovely bride out to lunch.
