So much to do this weekend!

To help me be motivated (and guilt Pat into it), I've decided to put up my list of stuff I have to do this weekend!

Shop at Wal-Mart
Shop at Albertsons
Go to Lancaster for a trip to Costco and Trader Joe's
Detail my car front
Detail my car - back
Clean out my trunk
Vacuum Pat's car (Pat did this!)
Vacuum my car  (Friday night push of doing stuff)
Clean off my desk
Wash sheets
Wash towels
Clean all the window sills in the house (This one gets another caveat! Dust is teh devil, and have infected all our window sills with disgusting inches of dirt. So I got 2 done and will work on the others next weekend!)
Rotate our mattress
Clean the front room trash can
Work out
Clean the microwave
Clean out both bathroom's medicine cabinets
Clean out the far left bathroom cupboard in the hall bathroom
Gas up my car
Do mycoke rewards entries
Wipe down baseboards in halls and bathrooms
Weed front flower area (no flowers there currently)
Pickup pinecones (This one gets a caveat! Apparently we have neglected the pine cones and needles in our front yard SO long that it's going to take a few trash pickups to get everything done. So I did the first 1/15th of the yard and called it good/_

Mow backyard
Weed/pickup backyard
Make clouds
Sweep front porch

As I/we get them done, I'll edit and mark them off! GO ME!

Also, I am working on leveling a mage so I can start raiding with her come the new expansion. She was at 15 when today started. Now she's 23 (will update this as it changes!). Really hoping I can level her up steadily! [Sunday Night Update: Auma is 30! YAY!)]

Have a great weekend all!

I Stood Outside In The Rain

It doesn't rain here often. So I stood outside letting the drops fall around me.

The sound of the water hitting the trees and the ground is glorious. The slant of the water as it streams down against the wind and is carried off before it hits its intended destination is beautiful. The feel of the drops as they touch me, first warm and wet then cold as the wind hits, brings about a euphoria than cannot be matched.

My honey put his arms around me and we stood and watched the rain fall. We watched for lightning and listened to the thunder together. I ran in the puddles and made footprints that quickly faded on the warm concrete.

The rain lasted longer than it usually does but not long enough for me. I changed into dry clothes and sat in the house, watching it and listening to it. The storm is passing, no water still falls. But while it did, I stood outside in the rain.
