Paid a visit to the house today to see how work was progressing, and also because the grass in the front yard was in danger of becoming a forest.
What I found was awesome. Lots of works, lots of work being done. New cinder-block walls are going up near the kitchen and the back yard has a big hole where a new foundation will be poured.
My weedwhacker didn’t cooperate, though. I think I flooded it. So I borrowed a neighbors’ mower. I soon remembered that not everybody keeps their mower set as high up as I do (same as my dad). still, the yard looks nice and the house is making progress.

‘Twas a beautiful day … perhaps the last beautiful day of the year. I knew I had to take advantage of it, so I embarked on a mow-n’-rake. Took about two hours or so, but I got about 90% of the leaves. It felt good getting it accomplished.
But one look up into our trees afterward was almost enough to quash that feeling of joy. There are bags of leaves yet to fall.
Daddies are nothing if not problem-solvers. So it was that I faced a dilemma on Friday …
Goal: Mow the yard on Friday afternoon before work, since I won’t have another chance to do it until Tuesday.
Problem: Ludi is awake, but Yoli is at work, so I can’t leave Ludi alone.
Solution: Mow the lawn with Ludi in the baby carrier!
