Day 39

Today my oldest son and I got up early and volunteered to help spread 10 cubic yards of mulch for a Scout service project at a local church. We had a decent crew of boys and adults, and we made quick work of the huge mulch pile. The boys even went above and beyond by sweeping the area and raking out the playground sand.

I tend to forget how satisfying it is to do this kind of work: To see clear, tangible results of your efforts, to feel like you accomplished something, to work as a team, and just to be outside on a brisk fall morning.

Plus, sometimes if you get up early enough, and your timing is just right (like ours was today) you get a glimpse of something truly beautiful, and you have to stop and take a picture, even if it makes you a few minutes late...
