Friday Night Date

The cute engineer came home Friday evening
with BIG plans for the evening.

don't get to excited
like I did.

His plans were...
to rake the back yard.

I knew the backyard
needed a good rake'n
especially since the city is
planning on a pick up day this week,


I thought we would take care of that task
on Saturday.

My plans were foiled by
There was rain on the way!
and with rain in the picture
the cute engineer was on a mission.

Sooooo, we gathered the necessary tools...

and we could not forget
(even if we wanted to)
Libby, our gardening buddy.

Out we went...
Libby was such a big help!
all she wanted to do was play ball!

We raked and raked
and took trip after trip
hauling leaves to the front.
I am happy to say...


Now, we can plant some more bulbs.
Hope you are having a great day today!



  1. It was so windy here the last two days. My yard looks like a sea of pine needles. I told The Man, at least they're orange. (hehe) They match the season. :)

  2. That engineer is such a romantic, but I can understand the appeal of yardwork since he works all day at a desk!

  3. Hello Nancy~
    It was so nice to hear from you. I too~ have been so busy and MIA lately in the blog world. Sometimes that is just how life goes. I am catching up with your blog today.
    Hope you have a wonderful day!

  4. Just found your blog. Enjoyed reading your daily thoughts. So sorry you had to rake the yard instead of a date night. I am afraid that raking the leaves is a job during this time of year that could never end.
