Outside. Leaves. On the ground.

My granddaughter Lulu was over, and we went outside and gathered a pile of sumac leaves, and then piles of twigs and walnut shells.

We dug a small hole and buried them.

It wasn't a funeral, and so we sang "someone's in the kitchen with Dinah" over and over.

Then we found a couple of brooms and swept the leaves away.

She was hungry then and we came back in and ate some yogurt.

sweet john.

nothing quite like teen glamour to make one wish for autumn's simplicity and burying little things just because.

She lives about a quarter mile away.  We see her just about every day.  It's nice to see her growing and changing.

You have a grand named Lulu! I love that. I wish my grands were that close. The nearest are 8 miles, too often through city traffic which makes it take as long to get to them as to the one who's 20 miles away. Big fun.
