It's Fall. It's Sunday. I'm Lazy.
Yesterday the weather was gorgeous. We got home from church and these two Natives grabbed some rakes and started raking piles of leaves to jump and play in. I sat and watched pondering on the irony of the situation. Had I asked The Natives to rake the leaves so we could clean up the yard it would have been met with complaining and all sorts of woes and, "I hate raking leaves. Why do we have so many trees......." Since it was their idea and for pleasure, well........ that's different.
I can remember growing up doing this very same thing. If asked to do it, what ever 'it' is..... 'it' was a chore. If it was my idea though!! Well then! Play time!! The key here, is trying to figure out how to make it appear as if all the chores The Natives do are their own ideas and are for their fun and pleasure! Yeah.... I bet Adam and Eve thought the same thing and parents since then have been trying to figure out how to pull the wool over their native's eyes. Yeah. I'll get back to you when I figure this one out.
In the meantime, I enjoyed sitting outside watching these two tumble and tussle and throw 'pies' in each other's faces. Not a bad way to spend a lazy fall Sunday afternoon............
P.S. Notice anything......... STRANGE in the first two photos??
