Rain, Rain and Cleaning

Today has been rainy and I've been stuck inside as the outside temperatures dropped.

My View

Today's view is of a wet road, and water standing in spots on the ground as the rain waters my plants. I only had to move my pepper plant onto the porch because the wind knocked it over. My window is open with a fan in it to keep the temperature in the house down while I clean.

How Did I Spend My Day?
I knocked a dozen things off of my list of things that had to be done around the house. My child's room is almost clean, I managed to get everything out from under her bed at least. I even got a few things out from under my bed and hand washed some clothes. There are some trash bags full (mostly small) and ready to be taken out when the weather permits.

Writing

I managed a single article, and edits on two more. They have been rejected for not being specific enough a number of times, but I am stubborn and determined.

Gift Cards
I managed a few minutes to work on earning gift cards to ensure that I have room in my budget at a later date when money gets tighter.

My Phone
I disabled purchases from it so my daughter would not order games without asking. The screen is still cracked so I am in search of someone to replace it. I am hoping for a place close by or one that can come to me without it being too expensive. I am attempting to set aside a little bit of money aside for a couple of months in case I end up having to pay the $149 and get the phone replaced.

Conclusion

The rain allowed me to get some of the things that I needed to get done accomplished. I have only spoken to one friend today. I have not sent messages or text out to anyone else to prevent myself from getting distracted as I mark off the items on my list.

Rainy days are productive days for me when I don't give into the urge to sleep through them.

Every turn in weather is a hint and an opportunity to get things done that are crying for attention!

Interesting read, thanks Laurie - siva
