Good Morning Monday!

Wow I am feeling happy because the sun is out and it is 61 degrees on this November morning.  Can you believe it?  I am soaking up the sun through my craft room window with a great big smile. I know that the weather will turn cold again but for today I’m happy.  The sunshine feeds my soul!

Oh but my left shoulder is aching me right now. And do you know why? I can give you 55 bags of leaves as a good reason!  Leao and I raked up all the leaves for the season within two day. I usually do it in small stages because I like the excuse to be outside with the birds and fresh air. But this year, I tried something different and believe me, it was hard walking past mounds of leaves each day. That perfectionist side wanted to go rake but I held off and although I am sore, it is only for today and I am done with the leaves.

All of our leaves bagged for the season.

I even put my veggie garden to rest and dug up my dahlia bulbs for next season.

I hope you are having a great Monday! Find something to make you smile today!



  1. Good for you! I use to spend a couple days in a row raking up all the leaves. It was so fun and the yard looked great, well for a while. Although I do not think I have ever come close to 55 BAGS!!! Now that is a workout isn’t it?

  2. Wow! You have been very busy and very productive. Fortunately we only have 2 trees in our yard. One is way out in the front yard and the other is a magnolia which doesn’t shed all of it’s leaves. No raking around here. 🙂

    I hope you recover quickly.
