The Trees Are Shakin' It OFF Today!

It is so windy today. It started last night with some occasional GUSTS. I didn't think too much of it because it was just a bit windy and only once in a while. This morning, though, it has been pretty steady and I admit I have been startled more than once by a door slamming shut or something rattling on the roof. I took a look outside and our tree in the front is shaking and shaking. The more it shakes, the more the LEAVES fall. And they keep falling, falling, falling - so much that it looks like RAIN. Not wet rain but a RAIN of LEAVES. And the pile on the sidewalk (and on Mommy's car) keeps growing and growing.

At this rate, we are going to have NAKED trees before the end of the day. I don't see how it could be otherwise.

I, for one, am kind of happy about this annual shedding of the LEAVES. It means that when I go on a walkie I get to CRUNCH through the leaves on the ground. It is so satisfying. Don't you think? It is a nice reminder that AUTUMN is definitely here and Thanksgiving is right around the corner.

We are having lots of wind today. Our leaves are falling on the ground and blowing all over the place. We hope you get to enjoy your fun walks on those crunchy leaves. We do love this time of year and can't wait for Thanksgiving Day. Thanks for the share. Have a wonderful weekend.
