The second graphic in our fall activities series is about "raking leaves." Do you have to rake leaves in your region?

As you were using the present perfect, I assumed Patrick was raking at 10:38pm (time of your message) Smile

Muriel, I was kidding.
I understood what you meant but pretened not.
In English, "This is exactly what we are doing now !" can mean both "at this period of the year..." or "we're presently doing this".
"En ce moment il ramasse les feuilles" can also mean both "at this very time..." or "in this season...".

A proverb is a popular cultural saying that conveys an idea that many people in that culture believe to be true. Today, we're starting a new series with American proverbs. What proverbs exist in your culture? Maybe there are some similar ones in #AmericanEnglish.

Pumpkin souvenir is very nice for me. My father who passed away in 2004, used to have a pumpkin patch.  His grand children had a sign with their names next to one of them. Every year there was the pumpkin competition and the child with the bigger pumpkin would be the winner. Of course all the children wanted to win and when there was no one round, they placed their signs next to the bigger one. Very Happy

The comments speak about "small problems", I also read it meant Don't be upset about passed problems".

Do you ever feel nervous when you are waiting for news about a person or event? Maybe this proverb can reassure you in that type of situation.
