A Few Minutes Between Photos


Webster was enjoying an after-breakfast survey of his domain on the balcony checking out the flocks of blackbirds that were flying around everywhere. As you can see, I mowed yesterday afternoon and did a double duty job of cutting grass and crunching/blowing the leaves. My driveway is still covered though and will require hand raking.

Moments after we came inside, it started to rain. I've always found wet leaves are much easier to rake than dry ones so tomorrow I shall do the driveway. Today is a good day for never-ending inside chores and maybe a movie. I have several TV shows to catch up on too. I searched around the internet and have successfully watched season one of Sherlock and enjoyed it very much. I hope I can find season two as well (free) because I just learned that the series starring Benedict Cumberbatch will be following Downton Abbey in January.

I miss the sound of rakes in the fall. Such a nice soft comforting sound.

NOW...Grrrr... I can hear as many as SIX gas leaf blowers at once. It is impossible to enjoy nice fall weather. I could scream at the top of my lungs, when several yard crews are around and no one would hear me.

Your deck pictures are wonderful! You have such a beautiful property and I am sure you enjoy it so much! Enjoy your inside day! I am off to take a card making class this afternoon. :)

NanaDiana...Try raking the leaves when they are wet. The piles stay in place, don't blow away, and they take up much less room in the bin. You can really mash them down too and get a lot more in each load.

Ah Sherlock and Cumbarbatch, a match made in heaven. I'm totally addicted to Sherlock as is my whole family, I can't wait for season 3. Anytime I have house guests for any length of time I ask them if they have seen Sherlock, if not I persuade them to watch it. Everyone, that I have introduced this series to, has become addicted also. Does your local library have PBS DVDs?

I found all of Season I and Season II of Sherlock online. Plus one of my local PBS stations started rebroadcasting the series once again this past Wednesday. I love it. I don't know why I didn't watch it the first time around. It's wonderful!!!
