Two very different to-do lists

May 16, 2015

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:

  1. mow 8 acres of wild grass
  2. clean chicken coop(s)
  3. build a new compost and dig out the old one

My to-do list:

  1. read I See Me, Oracle 1
  2. make notes on Oracle 1 and blog for Author Read-A-Long
  3. plant tomatoes
  4. 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?

The next three chocolates in the queue for testing. Will two of them be worthy of a place in Dowser 5?

    It takes a real man to step up to the tough jobs like eating chocolate. 😀
