Day Off and Rain Changed Activity

I am in the middle of a three day holiday (stay-cation) to celebrate the end of summer and complete some projects around the house.

And it is raining. Really! Wet.

Although I love rain, it makes working outside problematic, especially when one of the projects I had planned on accomplishing was dropping a dead tree. The rain just makes that a bit tougher.

OK-- really dangerous.

So the tree will wait. Until tomorrow!

Yesterday the garage was cleaned--thoroughly. Until I put the lawn tractor back inside we actually could have put two cars into the two-car garage. Miraculously.

The truck is fully loaded for a trip to the dump.

I fear the rain has moved cleaning the attic into the forefront of activities planned for the day. Ugh. I despise cleaning the attic--which is why in the almost 12 years we have lived here the attic has not been thoroughly cleaned. There are boxes there untouched by human hands for a dozen years. The next time they are opened will be when they are tossed into the dumpster at the dump.

Flexibility is the key to fun and the successful completion of projects.

Rain is just an opportunity to find new ways to get things done.
