CRUNCH

You guys are going to think I'm crazy, but I had to record a little moment of happiness I had today. One thing that gives me great joy in life is "crunching" leaves. It is a pastime I discovered in college.

It is both passion and obsession. I love to do it and I HAVE to do it. If a crunchy leaf crosses my path, I will not be rest until it has been satisfactorily crunched!

I know, I know...a little C-R-A-Z-Y.

But fun.

Oh, AND I rinse ice.

I love the crunchy leaves video! I love how you walk on the edge, as to crunch as many leaves as possible, so each and every step can live up to its "crunch" potential.

You're awesome my friend, I love your little quirks!

Renee said...

This is hilarious!!

I had to follow your link to your comments about rinsing ice. That was hilarious, too! I have to say though, that I've always wondered what those white flakes were in the bottom of my glass. I feel much better now, thanks to you!

This is so fun...I love getting to know you better like this!

And while I was watching the video, I REALLY wanted to go outside right now and crunch leaves!

That was so funny! I love to crunch leaves too! I noticed that you didn't say anything, which is what I should have done in my trampoline videos! I hate hearing my own voice on a video!
Anyway, I tried to use the blogger video thingy too and I couldn't get it to work either. You Tube does fine for me!

Alana,
I registered with bloglines, but I have no clue what to do next. Could you help me please??

Thanks,
Darlene

I am so with you! I went for a walk with my daughter today and we were racing each other to get to the crunchiest leaves on the road. We had fun.

Ok - have to tell you...I think I just bought those shoes and was wondering about wearing them with white socks...guess I can :)

Cute!

BethAnne said...

You really rinse ice? Interesting. Love the video.

Teri said...

You. Are. Cute.

Also, you could crunch and crunch away in my yard...we have been too busy to rake....

Alana said...

Okay Mary, you are cracking me up because I did not have white socks on with those shoes. I had no socks on. That is my skin. I'm a little on the pale side ;-)

Mary@notbefore7 said...

BWHAHAHAHAHA! That is SO funny.

Yeah, I have been wearing them with black - they are the sketchers ones.

Guess I can wear them with my white feet then too! :)

Janelle said...

Love the crunchy leaves! I love how you had to get every single one of them.

Soak up this season! It is awesome.

Xandra said...

The sock thing has me rolling on the floor! LOL! Seriously...everyone stopped what they were doing and looked at me because I laughed so loud and hard!

I totally get the crunching thing...it's almost a personal contest to see how many I can get with each step, and then what percentage of leaves on the ground can I possibly crunch overall!

Love ya, sugah!

Heather C said...

ROFL... now I'm dizzy! Well... dizzier than I was before ;) I love your quirks too... We all have them. We might as well embrace them, right? :)

We don't have many crunchy leaves around here, but it is fun, I agree? Rinsing ice, really? =)

Bev Brandon said...

I crunched leaves on my walk today and walked near the crack...thinking of you. I looked down and I had on white socks---just like yours! I only walked hours the other day cause I was lost :o I think I'll remember you lots every time I crunch leaves while wearing white socks :)

Fran said...

I loved how you hugged the side of the sidewalk in order to get to the most leaves!!! That just made me smile and laugh out loud. That was very good, friend. We will all now think of you as we crunch along in daily living.

Love ya!
Fran

Sparky said...

Today as I was sitting upstairs in my office I was mesmorized just watching all the leaves raining down from our trees. Feel free to come crunch our leaves anytime my friend.

Short Stop said...

I love that you recorded this. I have to agree...there is just nothing like crunching leaves!

Denise said...

What is rinsing ice?

I want to go crunch some leaves!
It's not crazy at all. It looks like a perfect moment of happiness.
