Kinda small, but a smile just the same.

We're in the throes of all the leaves falling and our yard is filled with huge 100-year-old oak trees and more. Suffice it to say there are leaves everywhere.

I sweep the walkway between the car and the house everyday because it's dangerously slippery when it's covered with leaves. Tumble, 9-month-old kitten, always helps me.

Well, today, Tumble didn't want to help. He wanted to play. At the end of the sweeping (raking, really) there was a huge pile of leaves that I started to brush aside. As I was doing so, Tumble jumped into the pile and rolled around and jumped into the leaves. He kept doing this for at least 15 minutes. He had a blast and I had a great time watching him and I didn't care that he totally messed with the leaves I'd so diligently cleaned up.

Watching any animal playing can make you smile and laugh, even when you don't want to. I love it!!
