Sunday Confessions

Bless me reader, for I have sinned. It's been TOO LONG since my last confession. Being sans Internet will do that to you. But, we are back in business! Feels so good to have a real laptop as my computer, not a phone.

As for confessions, yesterday I did my first real homeowner yard work chore: raking leaves. Certainly nothing that deserves accolades in the slightest, but when you are raking your own leaves on your own street that have accumulated for about a month because the previous owner stopped, it's a big deal. One and a half trash cans full, big deal. We didn't want to be That House. You know, the one that has terrible landscaping and jacaranda blossoms everywhere. Well, we are, at least the latter, but so is the entire neighborhood. I did manage to get all of the magnolia tree's leaves.

Granted today we've had winds gusting up to 40 miles an hour, so the leaves are back in abundance , again.

Silver lining: at least it's making the paint dry faster in the kitchen with the windows open.
