Wednesday 11/20/13 raking leaves, Day 324/ 365…

We need to rake the leaves in the yard. We save them for the compost pile.  When the kids were little we had a lot of kids in the neighborhood. They would all come over and help us rake the neighbors leaves into our backyard so that we could have a compost pile. The neighbors liked it because they didn’t need to rake. The kids had fun raking. If they didn’t have enough rakes at their house, they brought over shovels. We were happy because we got enough leaves for the summers compost.

Each year I would save a small bag of leaves. On Christmas morning I would scatter the leaves on the living room floor. I would also get some big boots and make muddy boot prints. The kids thought that it was cool that Santa left muddy prints and leaves when it was snowy out and all of the leaves were gone. Now that they are older, when the leaves fall the kids always say “mom, you need to collect some leaves for Christmas morning”. I think that they are on to me.
