#81 of 100 Simple Suggestions... Jump into a pile of leaves
This suggestion was actually supposed to be #59 in my list, but in the middle of August, there were no leaves on the ground. I saved it until today. On our Terry Fox walk yesterday, the leaves were everywhere, especially in the air as the Grade Five/Six class threw them around. So this weekend is the time to enjoy a simple and fun activity. When's the last time you raked up a pile and jumped in? Or buried yourself and jumped out at an unsuspecting friend? Leaves are great insulation for our tender plants through the winter... and for play. If you don't have leaves in your yard, or if you don't have a yard, why not grab a friend and find a park with deciduous trees, and have a blast!
