Raking Leaves

<= Good Housekeeping - October 1916

I never had the privilege of setting a pile of leaves ablaze. This is one area that I would have enjoyed seeing my efforts go up in flames. Certainly, with all of the California wild fires currently burning, this could never be considered.

As I type this post, I am barefoot, wearing a t-shirt and stretch jeans. I was dressed this way when I went outside to protect my plants from the dry heat that has been chasing away the night chills at sunrise.

I can't imagine raking leaves dressed like the woman on this vintage magazine cover. Making a fashion statement during yard work—especially in high heels—has never been a priority. No, I would rather be dressed in clothes that don't mind rolling in leaves.

I have missed you! I have been on blog vacation, kinda sorta taking care of life issues. Must be something in the air? The leaves are falling here in Tennessee too and I really needed this post to get me in the mood to rake.
Thank you sweet friend have a blessed day.

Well, I agree that the attire certainly doesn't seem practical, but it does make for a lovely image. A feast for the eyes.
