I can't believe that it's September already. One thing for sure, it means Christmas is less than 120 days away. Oh I am so excited for the holidays you know. I love to see the streets decorated with Christmas lanterns and Christmas lights. There's something about Christmas that makes me feel more jolly and happy. Do you feel the same way too? But before all that joyful excitement, I can't deny the fact that fall should come first. That means backyard nightmare! Back where we live in the Space Coast, I only have to endure raking the leaves from the one big tree at the front yard.
Every other day I have to rake and gather the leaves around the base of the tree or put them inside the 40 lb construction bag. Whewww! That was tiring! But then again, it became part of my exercise routine and 'twas a stress reliever than a pain in a butt. Besides, the cardinals and the love birds love to hang out by the yard right after I am done raking. Check out the bird bath.
After doing the backyard chores, I go for a ride around the neighborhood. Since I am not an expert rider, I need to stop for every passing cars. The good thing was, there's few of them really so; bicycling is fun around here. I usually made 3 rounds around the 3 blocks so; I was truly exhausted after but, in a good healthy way.
After taking a break, I water my roses at the front yard. What a refreshing sight.
Fall is sure lovely in places up north and other places but, in Florida, it's mostly dry. Fall is lovely when I see the leaves of the trees are changing in gorgeous colors. I saw that when we travel to Missouri. I can still remember how lovely are the mountains in Tennessee. What a wonderful place!
So, are you excited for the fall? Are you planning to play and cover your pets under those pile of thick leaves?
