This weekend Jerry and I had a pretty full schedule. But one thing we knew for sure, was that we were going to take care of the leaf problem. We live in an established Raleigh neighborhood with lots of trees. This is something we love about this house. However, those leaves aren’t gonna rake themselves!
I have to give Jerry credit, he did most of the work (several weeks ago in freezing temperatures mind you). But this Sunday, we both tackled what was left behind. To the tune of about 25 bags full! Jerry even got up on the roof with the leaf blower and cleaned out the gutters! What a guy. I tell you what, I married up!
We are really pleased with the results and I hope that this year we will be able to focus more on getting things planted. 2007 was the year of cleanup to this long forgotten and overgrown yard. Now we have a clean slate and I can’t wait to get started! I will definitely keep you posted on the progress.
