I finished the leaf cleanup before it got dark. I did not get everything done that I wanted yesterday and so I have more work to do today. Hopefully I'll be productive without getting frustrated and crying. But for now, the darn leaves are cleaned up. I do expect one more round of cleanup before winter since there are still some leaves on the oak trees but I hope it's not as bad as yesterday. I easily made 10 trips dragging a tarp full of leaves down into the woods yesterday. The leaves were so deep and overwhelming and I just lost it (obviously).
Last night, though, and this morning, I do look out and am happy with how everything is cleaned up.
Perspective...it's an amazing thing!

|BEFORE: Side yard....no pictures of the other side and back yard.|
|AFTER: I feel so much better now.|
