I'll be glad (for multiple reasons!) when Ralph is back to normal. I don't like doing his chores and mine! Yesterday, I had the joy of cleaning the gutters out - before it starts to rain. According to weather.com, it is supposed to rain tonight, so I am just in time. AJ mowed the lawn while I cleaned out gutters, so the leaves are mulched. At least the ones that have fallen in the yard. I think most of the leaves are still on the tree. AJ and I were discussing ways to shake them all off the tree at once, so we could be done, but....they are still up there, just waiting until we finish raking/mulching, etc. to fall. I also need to get the ones that are in the flower beds out, but that will be another weekend.
I also took stock of where I was for Christmas. I've started my list of snowflake recipients, took a look at what snowflakes and gloves I had left from last year, and my stock of completed cowls and scarves. Not too bad! I have a ton of things to make, don't get me wrong, but...I have a running start this year, I think. In doing this, I also re-organized my yarn boxes, and brought in what I will need for gloves and scarves. and stacked the boxes in the living room, Now, I have no excuses!!
