leaf me alone

Apparently leaves, combined with wind, have this natural tendency to accumulate on my front porch. Once there, they don't move, even on the windiest days. I would try to sweep them into my garden & they'd fly right back. So, eventually I gave up trying to rid my porch of them and simply lived with a pile of leaves on my porch for the last few months because the fight seemed futile. But this past weekend, the nice weather inspired me to get out and finally rake up the leaves and actually put them in the garbage.
*Finally*, I thought to myself: no more leaves!
Of course, the very next day, this is what my porch looked like.
