See all those leaves? Mom raked up most of them and removed them. (I say 'most' because about halfway through the whole raking adventure, Mom decided that her raking muscles had atrophied over the summer, and so removing 'most' of the leaves was good enough...)
While Mom was coming up with reasons to justify a shoddy raking job, Abby and I took the opportunity to enjoy the nice fall day.
And zoomies? Boy, oh boy! The cool day (the high was in the mid-50s) was MADE for serious zoomies!
As you can see in this last picture, our grass is mostly leaf-free. For now. Not all the leaves have fallen off the trees, but Mom has declared herself 'done' with the yard until springtime!
After Mom did all the
In other excitement, we had another doggie class this weekend. You'll notice that I was paying SuperClose attention to Dad (he's NOT looking at his watch in this picture - he was just moving his hand, but Mom only got a couple of pictures, so she had to use what she had...)
Abby? Not so much on the paying attention thing...
Yeah, she was doing what she was supposed to be doing, but instead of paying attention to Mom, Abby was busy checking out her boyfriend Axel a goofy chocolate lab. (Is 'goofy lab' redundant? Yeah, I thought so!) In fairness to Abby, this was during the last 10 minutes of class, and Abby's puppy brain tends to melt after about 30 minutes of class!
For all of you who got snow in the East? We'll be firing up AirFiona for a visit - we need a snow fix!
