So very, very sore.
It was a beautiful day and I started in on raking the leaves up.
I am usually really thankful that we have such a large yard. We have a lot of trees though - and they drop a lot of leaves.
I worked for a few hours this morning and I haven't even finished a quarter of it. It's going to take a very long time.
I actually enjoy raking leaves (except for the blisters). It's a good workout and as long as I remember gloves, then I'm fine.
What I don't like is the leave removal. Bagging them up is so hard. There must be a better way to do it. I'm sure there is. Oh, I remember what it is - I usually make Andy bag them up. Seeing as he's not here, I suppose that won't work this time.
I would be feeling a bit sore, but fine, if I hadn't done so much bending over. My back went out on me a little bit and I think it's going to need a day of rest before I can get back at it again. I'm sure that they will be there waiting for me when I decide to work some more. Unless the leaf fairy comes in the middle of the night. That would be nice...
