It’s no secret, when the sun is out, my motivation is limitless. But if it’s dreary and overcast, well, let’s just say it takes all my natural willpower to get stuff done. Does that make me a solar-powered mom? Possibly.
So I took advantage of the solar-powered motivation to:
- catch up on three baskets of laundry;
- finish the first draft of a short story;
- outline 15 blog posts;
- troubleshoot the missed schedule problem on my blog – none of the solutions have worked…yet;
- begin the inventory of my personal library that I’ve wanted to do for two years;
- begin a painting project with my daughter – I’m no painter but it’s still fun;
- discuss classic literature with my daughter and order our first set of “complete book with study guide” for such gems as Frankenstein and Great Expectations. She also wants to read Shakespeare and she selected Hamlet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream to get started there. Oh, and she begged for H.G. Wells and Jules Verne so, of course, I caved and ordered a box set and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, respectively.
