It was a long, cold rainy day. Usually, I like the rain. I like the sound of the pitter patter. I like the smell of the clean air. Not today. Today was a long, cold rainy day.
We eventually ventured out after trying to sleep in with the loss of the hour. It was a slow morning and we made it to the second much later service at church. When it was time to leave, there was more rain and chills.
The afternoon was dedicated to picking up and cleaning the house. One more time for someone else. It is difficult living in the house you are trying to sell. One week we lived in super clean pick up mode. Actually, we enjoyed it! Simple living. But it was not an easy task.
Thankfully, we received an offer on our house in that first week. Because you don't really live like this. Back to real life living. Some piles here and there. Shoes by the door. Using the countertop.
Until today. Our home will be appraised tomorrow. My husband wanted it back in showing condition. We pray that our home shows well with the updates and there are positive comparables in the neighborhood.
Fingers crossed this is the last time we are cleaning for someone else. But for now I relax under a warm blanket listening to the pitter patter and enjoying the Sunday evening rain in my clean and well-picked up home.
There won't be too many more days like that here. So, now I will enjoy this long, cold rainy day.
