A Productive Day

I wish I had something nice to say about the weather, but I really don't today. It's been in the 30s all day, with strong winds, spitting rain, and a thick cloud cover. A nice day to curl up on the couch with a book, but that's about it. It's a little unfortunate because it's my weekend off and I really love being outside, but I have done the best with what I have and instead have caught up on work inside.

So far today I have:
  • Done homework
  • Took the dog on a cold run
  • Did some work on my vermicompost bin (indoors)
  • Washed dishes
  • Did laundry
  • Cleaned up the mess I created this week when I painted my spare bedroom
  • Partially cleared out my email inboxes
  • Watched the Dog Whisperer (online, I don't have cable)
I almost didn't go out for a run because of the weather but there were two things that prompted it: a) Zephyr was driving my nuts and b) it's going to get a lot colder before it gets warmer so I just need to suck it up and get used to it.

And there's still more to do! The other stuff I plan to get done today...
  • Put plastic over the windows for winter
  • Vacuum
  • Organize my paper files
  • Organize my computer files
  • Finish purging my old emails
  • Clean the rest of the house
  • Do some more laundry
  • Brush the dog
  • Some more homework and reading
  • And I'll probably watch more Dog Whisperer!
Busy times, busy times...

Oh!! and one more thing!
Two of my  uncles wrote a book called "Hawkeye Greats, By the Numbers" It's now available on Amazon. If you're an Iowa fan, I think you should buy a copy ;)
