3. roofer consultations and bids galore.

5. lunch with grandchild and fam.
6. second lunch with colleague and friend.
7. book group.
8. breakfast with daughter and grandson.
9. food shopping for
10. baby shower for other colleague and friend.
As full of delights as this list is--and it is full! heaven knows, busting out all over with delights!--I need to get to work.
The historian and I just had a little midday phone call, because (a) more roofing talk, and (b) I left my phone at a store across the street from where I had breakfast this morning. He said, "So what have you got to do today?"
To which I replied, "I have a whole list":
1. straighten (this verb includes a myriad of stuff and messes)
2. wash (the whites and the sheets)
3. make videos (which I owe, in a sense, my college...therefore, I have procrastinated and resisted--one of my small handful of key, signature moves)
4. sew (I have inventoried the piles of fabric I have accumulated over the years. I am going to make things out of this fabric. Some things.)
5. cook @ 4. For the baby shower.
So it's time to get cracking.
Notice how there's no writing in that list? I wonder: what's that about?
