Fall Back, Indeed!

A crisp, gorgeous fall weekend proved very productive for the Transposzing family! On Saturday we raked, mowed the back yard, pulled up the garden, made a couple of trips to the compost site with our yard waste, DearHusband got up on the roof and blew the gutters out, we put away all of our summer yard-things, removed the pump from the ground, grocery shopped and ran a couple of other errands, washed some windows, finished the laundry, vacuumed the house, groomed the dog (no small undertaking - and no small dog, either!), then off to choir rehearsal, Vespers, and a concert.

And this morning: Church - and then on to the front yard. Mowing, trimming all the bushes back (except for the Burning Bush - burning just too brilliantly at the moment to cut), cutting the perennials back, cleaning out the flower beds, and bagging the whole kit and kaboodle. One more trip to the compost site tomorrow and we should be ready for winter ... unless the few leaves left on the trees decide to fall before the snow does.

Thanks be to God for the gift of cooperative and beautiful weather in which to do these fall chores - and for the extra hour of sleep, which came in handy for most of our family.
