Yard Work ~

The recent winds
 have blown off almost all of the black walnuts 
and leaves from our trees
within the span of just a few days ~
leaving us with tons of nuts and leaves on the ground…

the black walnuts are plentiful this year, 
~ but you can break an ankle on them if you dare to cross the farmyard in the dark!

So
Peter & Chris have been raking and blowing them
into piles to compost…

things were going along smoothly,
...when
production was suddenly thwarted ~

"Big Green" - our tractor
 {{ and yes I can cook and clean AND drive Big Green!}}
lol

 …seems as though there was 
'something'
in one of the leaf-piles…


…or some"ONE"!

our faithful old friend,
Mr. Lazy Bones
decided to climb in & nestle down in the pile for a nap :)


ZZzzzzzzzzzzz


 …holding up the progress for just a little while…



um….Lazy?


awwww….
we didn't have the heart to make him move for a while,
~ but ~
the boys did need to get back to work you know.



~ our sweet faced old-man-dog…our best friend ~
...he is 11 yrs old now,
has trouble seeing & hearing ~
his bones are stiff and stodgy
….but he can still chase a few deer when he wants to!

Pinocchio & Daisy
are very good friends with Lazy,
and come in for a closer look….



"hey there!"
... or is it "HAY there"?


we let Lazy rest for a while,
then resumed the yard work….

Lazy reminded us 
just how important it is to slow-down 
and enjoy a good nap 
...occasionally.

Since I was snapping pics, 
I thought I'd share the Nandina berries this year on one of the bushes ~
They are beautiful…



it's beginning to look a lot like…..


and since it's upon us once again…
'Tis the Season so-to-speak ~

I've filled up my wooden bowls with more of our wonderful


Jingle Bell Pot Pourri©
 from Notforgotten Farm



…and have added it to our Etsy shop…
the whole house smells like Christmas!!




Hoping you take time for yourself today ~
go for a walk in the woods,
create something with your hands…

...hug an old friend.



* Blessed be *

Thanks so much for the inspiration, I have been putting off getting out and doing the leaves but after reading this post, I am off to get that job done!

Sweet, Sweet Lazy!!He knows the best place to get comfy. Our pup, Jack, loves to jump in the leaf piles! I spent a good part of yesterday clearing the front yard. Still have a few piles to haul to the woods, but I LOVE it!

Lazy is so cute, I bet he did not want to give up the leaves he was on.
Pinocchio and Daisy are so sweet.

Happy Fall
