not the gum balls you blow bubbles with....


oh, no
not those
~
the ones i'm speaking of
are those that prick you when you touch them
and make you twist your ankle when you step on one just right
the ones you have to rake every couple of weeks
because there seems to be an endless supply of them
up in the trees that grow those suckers

that's what i've been doing for the past hour

 now my fingers are all pricked because i was too lazy to go get my garden gloves
when i was putting them in the big black trash bag
but hubby will be pleased since he's the one who normally performs this envious task

but it's another beautiful day
and while i was raking the birds were performing a concert
in surround sound

spring is definitely in the air!
