The yards are covered with leaves. The front porch needs to be swept. I just noticed the patio has leaves and other debris blown on it. There is work to be done outside, but the wind is blowing, the sun comes and goes, and the couch is just much more comfortable than standing, bending, and wielding a rake.
I shouldn’t really care about the leaves covering the yard, but I have friends coming Monday morning, and they both have manicured yards and homes. I’m the outlier of the group! We are going out to a garden center to find a tree, bush, or some sort of memorial plant to take to a friend whose mother-in-law just died.
I got all of the materials ready for Sunday’s deacon’s meeting, but I’m hearing from various members that they won’t be in attendance. I’m not too sure if it’s even wise to meet in December, but it’s scheduled. We will say goodbye to three deacons who are going off of the board and greet three new ones coming on. I have parting gifts as thank-yous for the three who have faithfully served.
Tuesday Terry and I will go out to brunch at a lovely little cafe that is near where Terry goes for cardio rehab. I have been there once with a friend and found it absolutely wonderful in every way. The food, the service, and the ambiance. The specialty is brioche, made onsite, and turned into a variety of offerings. I’m planning to order the french toast. What is really great about this is that our meals will be courtesy of Yelp. I am an Elite Yelper and occasionally get offers like this. The last one was a chocolate tasting with a local cacao roaster. We were able to select a free chocolate bar afterwards and I also bought a can of chocolate tea.
As for those chores, they will be waiting for me, and some time I will get the leaves raked, the porch swept, and the patio cleaned.
