Feuer frei!

Today wanted to be a lazy Sunday.

My aunt nearly set my entire lawn on fire, which could have easily spread to the trees, and at the very least my storage shed. She had been burning yard waste yesterday and apparently buried the coals under a convenient trail of dry leaves leading up to a huge pile of branches from the tree we had cut down a few weeks before. If I had gotten home even 10 minutes later, it’s likely that I would have been too late.

After putting out the surface fire, I had her help me turn the rest of the rubbish into a pile of mud, which to her protest was not nearly as nice and neat as her dry leaf fuse.

I’m not sure where the rest of my time goes, but it seems to be in a hurry.
