With the fall weather settling in, we’ve been doing quite a bit of cleanup around here . . . trimming bushes, pulling out dead flowers, covering the A/C and getting the furnace ready to turn on. We’re lucky that we don’t have many leaves (most of them just blow away), but we do have black walnuts. In fact, we have a line of black walnut trees between the house and the barn, and this year was apparently a good year for black walnuts – we have tons of them!
It took 4 days, but the boys and I finally raked up all the walnuts and deposited in the back corner of our property.
That’s a lot of walnuts – too bad I don’t have something to make with them!
Nicolas’ favorite part is pulling the wagon with his 3-wheeler . . . in fact, it’s not too difficult to get the boys to work in the yard when they get to use the 3-wheeler.
After several hours of back-breaking work, Bryce is ready for a ride in the wagon!
So, we’re pretty much ready for the winter now . . . all cleaned up outside, RV winterized and packed away, furnace and humidifier cleaned up and ready to go . . . now all we need to do is sell this house so we don’t have to do this again!
Meanwhile, we brought Nicolas’ RV carpet and Poang chairs into the house, and Casey sure is happy – she’s been making herself at home in one of the chairs!
We were shocked the first time we found her there – she’s not allowed on any furniture . . . but for some reason she’s decided that this is her chair!
