Wild Turkeys and Some Scattered Thinking…

I’ve been running around a little too much… no focus… and feeling a little scattered... Got to focus on the task at hand, which unhappily is raking the lawn. At this time of year it is so easy to find something else to occupy my time than taking rake in hand and cleaning up the yard… but it has to be done… I tried burning leaves a while back and was thwarted by the local Boy Scouts… and I’ve tried mulching… but you have to get to the leaves when they are dry… fortunately the air is crisp and the sun shining so later today might be a good time to do it… but the sun goes down so early now… and I certainly don’t want to mulch in the dark…

And there is always the danger of the wild turkeys! A herd of them came across the front lawn the other day and headed down the street… must have been a dozen… all squawking and running… I took pictures so people would believe me in case I got attacked…

I did go after some rose bush vines that were hanging dangerously in my lawn mower path… so I trimmed those… I much prefer trimming to mulching…

And now, of course I am just babbling on and on, avoiding the inevitable trek to the backyard to fire up the mower and mulcher… ! And my goodness. Look at the time. Where has the afternoon gone to???? Time flies when you are trying to avoid doing something you really want to avoid! I’m good at that.

I’m with you, Sister! Look out the back every day and say, hmmm… I really should “X”… and then I go back inside and curl up with a book…

I’m thinking condo living is my next ‘advencha’!

xxoo

Absoluely agree. Grass is for landscapers not for me.

Come now…outdoors in the fresh air and sunshine doing a rewarding and purposeful deed…hard to beat….take it from one locked indoors and wishing they were outside!

I’m surprised you were not on the golf course rather than in the back yard. Fabulous weather these days for New England.

Actually, I lied… I was on the golf course… and have yet to rake. But it sounded so much more New England Workaholic to say I was out doing yard work instead of swinging at little white balls. 🙂 Glad you agree, a grand day on the golf course is worth ten in the garden.

I just checked out that turkey chasing video. Too funny… ! I think one of the commentators was correct… she should have walked towards the turkey rather than run away… he took control and just kept on coming… One swift toss of her camera and she would have had an early Thanksgiving!!! 🙂
