It’s a debate. To take or not to rake. Here’s one article that says don’t need to rake.
“Yes, you heard that right, leave the leaves where they lie. Although people often rake and bag leaves to prevent their lawns from being smothered and to make yards look better, in most cases, you’re fine not moving them. In fact, many environmental experts say raking leaves and removing them from your property is not only bad for your lawn but for the environment as a well.” From – Raking Leaves? Drop the Rake and Stop What You’re Doing
It’s not necessary. Unless your leaves are diseased. I’ve seen piles of huge brown paper bags filled with leaves and dragged to the curb.

Seeking interior light.
Not close enough, though. Could have been worse. Definitely a mess to clean up. Haven’t burned a candle in a long time.don’t think I’ll be lighting another, anytime soon. It was a gray, chilly, rainy day. Seemed like a good idea at the time.

An old eraser, the end of the curtain rod, Canadian coin, a single earring, perfume sample, a button from a blouse long gone, a knotty necklace chain, a pink polished rock, a rubber stamp square, a game token, a tiny key and an ivory brooch. I need the curtain rod piece. The rock can go in the dish of polished rocks I have on my desk in the hall. Maybe I have the other clip-on earring.

A day to be appreciative of all we have in our lives. Olga, my DIL’s mother gave me a handmade linen bag with a special lining to keep bread fresh. Made in Ukraine.
After more than three weeks away, I slept in my home bed in a warm house last night. It was a long day of travel so lots of time to knit and reflect on a wonderful visit with my son and his family. I received many welcome home messages and it was lovely How good it feels to be able to travel again. To be with those you love. To meet a 2020 granddaughter.
I’m grateful for my family and friends and all of you who stop by here.
I found an article about Giving Thanks from Harvard Health Publishing and how it can make one happier. I believe it!
