Two very different to-do lists
Every morning Michael and I have a ‘decisive meeting’ in the garden. This gives the chickens a bit of time to free range and us a moment to chat about our upcoming day. Being foodies, we talk about meals mostly, then share our to-do lists. Usually both of these lists are filled with work related duties, but every now and then Michael does something (errands/chores/etc) to keep our life in order and I try not to feel guilty about focusing on writing while he does so.
Michael’s to-do list:
- mow 8 acres of wild grass
- clean chicken coop(s)
- build a new compost and dig out the old one
My to-do list:
- read I See Me, Oracle 1
- make notes on Oracle 1 and blog for Author Read-A-Long
- plant tomatoes
- test taste two new chocolate bars so I can finish Dowser 5 and get it off to the editor
Michael sweetly – and not at all laughing his ass off that I had added it to my things to-do – offered to take over #4 for me, since his list only has three ‘light duty’ chores on it and it’s a terrible hardship that I have to eat TWO chocolate bars just so I can finish my work.
Kind of him, yes?
