I should probably break out the rake at some point, but I keep thinking that the moment I do another wave of leaves is going to fall.

I just wrote a sentence that has never and will never cross Martha Stewart’s brain given that she has someone change the sheets on her bed every single day. I read that somewhere once, and now it occupies valuable space in my brain, space that would most certainly make the case for why I should get out there RIGHT NOW with a damn rake.
