SOUND OF RAIN
After enduring the record drought and heat this summer. The sound of the rain last night and today was music to my ears. Matt and Cinders (my cats) sat on the sills in front of open windows and marveled at the unusual moisture falling from the sky.
The sound and smell of precipitation made me really lazy. All I wanted to do was lie in bed and read.
But I was determined to get some much needed de-cluttering done.
Looking for some good music to listen to while doing the boring housekeeping chores, I pulled up the final performances on The Voice I’d saved on DVR.
It was cool to listen to performances by Dia Frampton and Javier Colon–the runner-up and winner of the competition.
Matt and Cinders left their window seats to follow me around as I stuffed trash into bags, gathered up laundry, dusted shelves and cleaned kitchen and bathroom. When I pulled the vacuum cleaner out, however, they ran for safety under the bed.
Chores done. Papers graded. Writing done.
Now I can claim my reward.
Clean sheets on the bed, kitties curled up on the comforter,
a good book to re-read–Rough Justice by Lisa Scottoline.
and a cup of plantation mint tea.
If only another rainstorm could breeze through the area. That would be perfect.
