It was warm and rather lovely today. Perfect for raking up all those leaves from the giant oak tree and burning them. I can't believe how so many, many, many leaves can be reduced to so little when they're burnt. I put a bunch in the composter, too, but there were far too many for the bin to handle. So the rest have become ash for our gardens.
Nothing like sitting in a crunchy pile of crisp, brown leaves
Raking is hard work!
The flames are hypnotic.
^This one shows what a pumpkinhead Fishy still is. And yes, that's a leaf on top. :)
In other news, the wife of a friend from TKD/co-worker of GuTTer MuNKi's (aaaaackkk!!) had a sweet baby girl on the 2nd. I made her a tag blanket today. Not sure what else I'll come up with, but these are always fun.
Theoretically, you will have shorter blogposts to look forward to, as I'm writing more (non-blogstuff) again. Hooray for all of us!!
