Do you wait for the winds to be blowing at least 15 mph so you can spend over an hour chasing the leaves and drive your neighbors to the brink with the noise?
Mine get raked onto my flower beds each Fall and there they leach nutrients into the soil and by Spring (when they are raked off and disposed of) have boosted the health of new blossoms!
As my strength and stability decline and hand tremors become more common, it’s a nightmare for me to use the self check-out, especially since I usually shop only every two weeks and buy extra to keep from running out of certain items. The bagging area at SCO is so tiny and I have to lift the weight of each bag into my cart. At home, my “chauffeur” of the day carries the heavier bags and jugs to my door, bless her!
There is at least one very busy TH in St. Clair County, Michigan, across the St. Clair River from Canada!
Too much of the beauty of Nature in our country has been pillaged by land developers, who filled in, paved over and make the profits while species dwindle and disappear forever. I contend that whole-scale tree removal, paving driveways, parking lots, and roadways, and the roofs of mega malls/stores, homes, apartment complexes, etc. has done as much as anything to create the high temperatures we’re now seeing on a global scale!
Absolutely! But, since this comic was a way for the artist to share her family dynamics and issues, often we see some of our own and have the right to relate them, human to human. However, you are not required to read them.
I was taught (especially when visiting another home) that “cleaning ones plate” was a compliment to the hostess/one who prepared the meal.
My safe space hideaway (ages 6-15) was a long, narrow closet that went from the 2nd. floor bedroom, and behind the bathroom to the far wall. It had a single light bulb and I would spend hours in its comfort reading, thinking, or just being.
In Lansing, Michigan (1950s & 60s), all city baseball diamonds were flooded in the Winter and repurposed as well groomed ice skating rinks. Got us young ’uns out of the house and exercising. Loved it!
Makes me think of Cyndi Lauper’s hit, “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!”
