Final Leaves of the Fall are Gone

Finally, we have all the oak leaves removed from our front yard. Jay went out yesterday and used a leaf-blower to get rid of the last covering of leaves. I usually like to help, but we only have one leaf-blower and it took him about 30 minutes to get it done. We've lived in this home for five years now and we have never had this problem before. Our yard has always been cleared off, by the end of October. The weather this fall has been totally different!

@kobesbuddy I have mixed emotions. I'm going to miss all the kids and my precious Doodles. Every year it gets worse. But I do enjoy it so much down there. If the newlyweds have a baby, we will fly home to visit them a couple of times next year or whenever.

Usually, our temperatures in Michigan don't vacillate from hot to cold, like this year. One day it would be 85 degrees, two days later it was down to 30 degrees. This has gone on for months now. Mother nature got thrown into a tizzy, over this wide swing! I have spring flowers popping through the soil, in our side yard
