there is usually snow on the ground in rome, ny this particular time of year.  let me say that again with a bit of an alteration… there is usually A LOT of snow on the ground this time of year.

i can still see the leaves on my front lawn… the leaves that i kept saying to myself, ” why bother raking them up?  the snow will cover them soon.”

obviously, that worked out well.

hope everyone has a great holiday….i’m going to spend some more time looking at leaves outside my window.
