Looking outside today, all I could see were leaves in the flower beds and leaves and branches under the pine trees...So I got out the rake and went at it!! Raked all but one flower bed and under all the pine trees out front. It was good exercise for me and the smell of the spring air was so refreshing to me. The rain that was supposed to come today held off-we only had a couple sprinkles this morning. The work has begun; since Miles is limited right now, I have to pick up the slack and at least try to get the yard looking somewhat decent. And I got a good start today!!
