Hey there!!! yesterday we got a reprieve from the weather and took Tucker for a walk..much to my aching feet and knees..one compensating for the other makes it hard to walk...so we took a short one..man I just wish the pain in my left foot/ankle would go away..hoping to hear something from the doctors this week..Today I go in for my yearly pap smear..Oh happy happy, joy joy..:) I hate getting these..but thats part of being a lady..I suppose..so we we got back I decided since the weather was decent and I hate a messy yard...I got out the blower and went to town...here are the before photos..it was worse then last week..
Now mind you we don't have any maples in our front yard except for a Cedar and a tree that we don't know what it is..so the front here above looks like it snow in fall colors..I don't mind cleaning that up as it is MINE!!! what I do have a problem with is cleaning everyone else crap out of my yard because everyone that lives around us is lazy and allergic to yard work..so I spent 2-1/2 hours outside blowing leaves and raking...now I ask you...is this my job? Mike and I had a huge tree where we lived when we lived in Vancouver Washington..and every year when it was done we went and cleaned it up at our neighbors house..it was the right thing to do as it was OURS...I have asked the neighbors to take care of it and it falls on deaf ears...I even rake it back into their yard hoping they get the hint..I guess I need to email them all and tell them to take their freakin trees out or get off their lazy @$$e$ and do it..I have better things to be doing..and it will need to be done yet again as they aren't finished dropping all of their leaves...Sorry to vent..but this pisses me off to no extent and no one cares..and it is plain rude in my opinion..now our neighbors are moving...and they think the renters are going to want to do their yard work...heck if the home owners don't like doing it..do you think the renters will...so I asked them to get rid of the trees..so hopefully next year this will alleviate some of the work..The back yard will wait till this weekend..Okay off my soap box now..Below are the after photos..I still need to pick up that huge pile in the front..but at least we aren't tracking it into the house...Does anyone in blogland have this same problem? if so how have you dealt with it..
Oh I love a nice tidy fall yard...:)
Here is Pody and Tucker enjoying a nice fire on Sunday...
