Now, more fun.
Our home is surrounded by beautiful trees, including a large oak and a small maple in the backyard.
The front yard has a large maple and a cherry tree that provide nice shade in the afternoon.
All this nice shade provides me with the new problem:
Leaves. And they are just starting to fall. I hooked up my leaf catcher to my trusty John Deere tractor and cleared up all the leaves and cut the grass. Within minutes of clearing the leaves, new ones started taking their place.
I used to wait until most all the leaves had dropped before picking them up, but now I'll have to do this a couple of days a week until they've all dropped. My new foe.
I got all the leaves up and put the tractor away and sat down to have a bit of lunch when the doorbell rang. At the door was a realtor with a couple to view the house. I never got the call that a showing was coming or I would have beat feet out of here. So instead I got to show them all around the house in my old ripped and paint splattered clothes. Oops.
On the good side, I was able to show off the house much better than the realtor would have been able to. The couple was also looking in the neighborhood at a short sale house just like ours, but it needed a lot of work. We've dropped our listing price again for the fourth time to be more competitive with the short sales and the other house the couple was interested in was priced $50K under us.
So it looks like I won't be escaping leaf duties any time soon.
