Uneventful Day

OK, here's a little Life 101 lesson. If you love trees, you better enjoy raking leaves. We love trees, a fact that has been well documented in this blog. Earlier in the fall, I shot photos and described in detail the colors of the foliage and the beauty of the season. Well, all that's gone now and my yard is knee deep in dry leaves and they aren't nearly as pretty now.
Every time I'd rake up a pile today, the dogs would run up and jump right in the middle and roll around. They scattered leaves faster than I could rake them up. Since the wind was calm here I burned some of the piles. I bet I burned thirty wheel barrow loads full of leaves. It felt good because the air was cool but the sun was warm. I got my daily dose of exercise.
I dug up the Christmas tree and brought it in for the decoration ceremony tomorrow afternoon. When Jilda got home from work, we met our nephew and niece Haven and Alesha at the Bull Pen in Oakman, Alabama and had a nice steak for dinner.
All in all it was an uneventful day, but it was very nice.
