                           COFFEE KLATCH FRIDAY

Welcome to the 3rd Coffee Klatch Friday!


I have been encouraged by those who have posted. It's always hard to start something new, especially at my age (50 something) and after the first week it would have been easy to slate this Meme as a failure. Thank you Chris, for keeping after me to post. I am not sure how long this will last, but I am sure I will make new friends.

                         ~The Goal ~

To have a community of bloggers that are friends,

 that can come together once a week with ideas and

 support for one another. We all blog for different

reasons. For some, it is to be heard, for some it is to

  share, and for some it may be acknowledgement.

 After all, many blogs are just your thoughts, feelings,

 and experiences ... that you share ... and here it is

  easier.



This week's . . . I want to say questions . . . but they are really more like statements.


Please list 10 random things that you have

never done.
1. Eaten Blueberry Pie
~ My favorite pie is Raspberry. I enjoy Blueberry Muffins and pancakes, but for some reason Blueberry Pie looks, at least to me that it would be too sweet.~
2. Been to Canada
~ I love to travel and some day my get to Canada. Hubby has been there several times.~
3. Worn a Wedding Dress
~ Hubby and I eloped almost 33 years ago, and even though I did wear a dress... it wasn't a Wedding Dress or anything formal.~
4. Sang Karaoke
~ I have gone to karaoke (cruise ship) , but I'm more of an observer ... not participant.~
5. Been skiing (snow or water)
~ The rest of my family snow ski and go a couple times a year. Hubby and 1 daughter have watered skied , not sure my knees would hold out. ~

6. Eaten Sushi
~YUCK!~

7. Gone sky diving
~ 2 of my children have gone sky diving and the 3 would love to try. I possibly could do this, but have never given it much thought.~

8. Gotten a tattoo
~ 2 of my children have tattoo's and where we live it is a very popular thing to do. I would say that 60% of the women I work with have them ... just not for me~

9. Learned to swim
~ I have taken swim lessons... I was probably about 7 years old, but ... I really can only dog paddle, so maybe I could save myself, but you would be out of luck. ~

10. Been to Alaska
~ I have mixed feels about this ... I would love to see Alaska, but I really don't like cold weather ... I love HOT weather. Yes, I know I live where cold weather is part of the norm, but I am content to stay insides for weeks at a time when we have that weather.~

SUBJECT:
Please share with us something that you do to prepare for this changing weather.


One of the things we have to do to prepare for the changing season is massive yard work. With almost 30 broad leaf trees and almost the same number of pine trees, our yard gets pretty messy when all those leaves start falling. Unfortunately, falling leaves can go on for weeks. That means the clean up goes on for weeks too. Leaves are raked, mowed, and burned ... yes ... we can do that out in the country, but that is left for a last resort. Leaves are also mulched to cover flower beds. Apples from our trees that are not usable or have fallen on the ground are gathered and piled on the edge of the wooded lot next door for the wildlife that gather there.

We have been able to mow and mulch the leaves in our front yard once so far. Hopefully, we will get the backyard done this Saturday. Rainy and windy weather have hampered our yard work, but ... it's not really going anywhere anytime soon.
Your turn!.
