Leaves Be Gone

Though autumn has been eye candy for us, the responsibilities that the season brings upon homeowners isn’t too fun.

I’m talking about raking leaves.

The other weekend, I decided I couldn’t put off the task any longer, so out I went with a rake and tarp in tow. Ninety minutes later, Ben came out with a high-powered leaf blower.

“Figures,” I thought. “Men and their machines.”

We accomplished a lot, and even though I was proud of our newly neat yard, I think I’ll hire someone next year.
