I am never bored. I always have something to do. Or something I should be doing. I seem to get into displacement activity quite easily. A lot.
Apart from regular household tasks, my whiteboard list includes such things as:
- fix the pantry door
- fix the medicine cabinet door
- get a power point installed in the garage
- repair the broken bed end
- Start on the expanding pile of books I want to read. It seems a long time since I finished a book.
- catalogue all my photos and print out some to consider entering in the next Show
- make a rack to support the cissy seat bag well above the numberplate on the Silver Lady. (It tends to sag a bit and I don’t want the police to stop me for an obscured number plate).
- adjust the highway pegs on the Silver Lady (after a fair bit of riding I have reassessed the optimal position).
- get out the sail needle and braided linen thread and repair the Dri-Rider Saddlebags which took a beating on the last expedition. Then I can put the pillion seat back on the White Lady.
- Sell the White Lady
- construct and plant more raised gardens for herbs and vegetables, and perhaps even flowers.
- build a chicken coop and chicken run for three or four hens.
- spread a load of mulch around on the sandy area of the garden. The mulch has arrived, courtesy of Kel and the Shire, but before I can spread it as planned I need to
- borrow a wheelbarrow, rake and fork.
A long weekend such as this should be an ideal time to get some of these things done. Somehow two days have passed and I have not even finished all the household jobs, like vacuuming. I did have a couple of good naps, and did some cooking. I also have a very clean and tidy kitchen again, after the mess of making peanut sauce and pies.
I must look into this procrastination problem of mine sometime soon…..
