Weekend Calendar: October 28-30
Folks, what a beautiful day yesterday, and hopefully more in front of us. Your leaves are probably mostly heading for the ground at this point–mow them in, rake them around the tree bases, but before you do all that, build yourself a massive leaf pile. Yeah, you look less silly if you have kids to jump in it. or a giant labrador after a tennis ball, but don’t forget your own joy (also don’t hurt yourself).
The weekend is full of Halloween fun, sports activities, and community happenings. Live large and drive slow–watch for littles and for floating down leaves.
