98 Days ’til 40: Leaves on Asphalt

15 Nov


Another sign of autumn……  I love it when the leaves pile up.  I must confess, when I was a young child I would look for those freshly raked piles of leaves on the lawns of my neighbors…..  AND, I MUST confess, it is possible that, as a young child, I accidentally (on purpose) altered the states of those said leave piles……  by jumping, squealing with delight, and tossing them into the air.  What great fun for me, and somehow the neighbors never caught me!  (Note to all of my former neighbors, I apologize profusely!)

Today, 98 days ’til 40, I am reminded of one of those special childhood moments – playing in the autumn leaves!

    There is nothing better than that crisp, cold air and various shades of leaves to top to off; glad someone else likes it as much as me:))

    And there is something about the earthy smell when you are in a pile of leaves…

    Haven’t seen a huge pile around here, 400…and last time I did that I was in my mid-30s! Would love to, again…I did find a rather small 3″ high pile at the neighbors, and crunched through, kicking them everywhere! They were gone the next day 😦 !!!

    Love it, 400! 🙂

    Crunchy leaves are quite delicious. Unfortunately, here in Scotland, they have reached that squelchy stage. They’re slippy and gooey.

    *Psst! I don’t think anyone’s looking – go on, you know you want to jump in those leaves right now! I dare you… I double dare you!!! 🙂 *

      Yes, I do not like the gooey stage….. but I need to definitely find the crunchy pile to leap into!

    You are never too old to play in a pile of leaves.

    The bane of the neighbours, but the beauty of children’s playfulness … =)
