Leaf Grief

I didn't do my usual exercise today.  Not because I was lazy but because I had to do some yard chores.  One thing that is different about where I live now and where I grew up is the presence of trees...lotsa them.  Another thing that is different is that there is an actual change of seasons, and all the leaves on those trees fall to the ground.  So my day was spent raking and bagging.

You wouldn't think that tiny dried up leaves would be so heavy.

My back is killing me.

I don't know about you but the older I get the less I like Summer and the more I like Fall.

Extremes bother my old bones too. Fall is a nice break from the heat of summer before the bitter cold of winter.

When I did sparkpeople they had raking leaves and shoveling snow listed as exercise. It actually burns a lot of calories......if you have some pep in your step while you do it...

It was a good workout for me.
