Whiteboard List

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.
  • etc….

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…..

About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.

    OPM, you could be a South Islander from NZ! They are famous for their laconic laid back uniquely rural New Zealand way of speaking, “These things take time” was a catchphrase of some very good and now iconic Mainland cheese advertisements .

    Don’t rush it, some things just take time.

    Looks like a good list-should take a year or three.

    Even this post was displacement activity. I should be folding my laundry and putting it away before I do the dusting and the vacuuming.
