Rainy Day Activity -- Closet Cleaning

The rain fell all day yesterday. Despite the weather report which indicated that the showers would end during the afternoon--they didn't. I wonder how weathermen could get it so wrong.

Don't get me wrong--we needed the rain, but rainy Saturdays are a real downer.

There were so many things that needed to be done and what did I wind up doing? Cleaning and rearranging closets.

By the end of the day, every closet in the house was touched, cleaned, and rearranged. Hidden in there somewhere was a trip to Goodwill to donate the no longer needed items.

At one point, the house was in complete disarray because this was not just a individual closet cleaning, but rather, it was total restructuring of the closets in the house. There was even some minor construction involved as we realigned the storage and shelving in the master bedroom closet.

The project was finally completed just after 7pm. About the same time that the rain stopped.

Exhausted, we sat for a moment before beginning work on dinner and a bottle of wine followed by a movie.

I hope I do no have to suffer through another rainy Saturday again soon. Although I won't have to spend the day in the closet, it could be worse--the attic or the garage.
