Rain dance

05Jul12

Because the weather forecast said it would rain later, I rushed to get the washing done and hung out. Then I hurried to my meeting.

At the meeting I moved things along quickly because the washing was on the line and it looked as if it was going to rain.

When I got home the washing was dry so I brought it in as fast as I could, before it rained. Then, because it wasn’t raining yet, I hastily left to get the shopping done. I had to do this at speed before a conference call.

After the call the sun was still shining, so I took a risk and started mowing the lawn. When I heard thunder I accelerated and got all the grass cut in record time.

Because sometimes thunderstorms disrupt the broadband connection I decided to bring forward a skype conference which I had been planning for later in the day.

The conference finished and it still hadn’t rained, so I watered the tomatoes briskly before I started cooking the dinner.

We ate at the table outside in the evening sunshine, which meant that there was less clearing up to do afterwards. I used the time saved to practice my saxophone.

The fickle summer weather might be spoiling lots of sporting and social events, but it is definitely boosting my personal productivity.
