Things to Do Today


The first, okay, maybe it was the fourth, thing I did this morning before breakfast was write that To Do list.

I did finish the mystery I've been reading at breakfast. I diligently stuck with the story although I didn't care for the protagonist who was too much of an insecure whiner. But once I learned who the suspect was, I skimmed through the final scenes. I closed the book and purposely went to complete something else.

For about the next two hours, I topped off the Mama's outdoor potted plants with potting soil. It was something I had been thinking about doing for the last two summers. The other week, while the Mama was watering her plants, she mentioned that they needed more soil.

"Uh-huh," I said, glancing at them and thinking I need to do that before she got to it. Fortunately, for me, a few days ago, the Husband and I bought three huge bags of potting soil. The Mama requested one, but I bought two extra bags. Not because I was going to add soil to the potted plants but because I have plans on building a planter box to replace the broken-down one full of roses. And, I would need those bags for the new planter box.

Yup. You got it. I used up those two extra bags topping off the Mama's potted plants, and I didn't even get to all the pots. They will have to wait for another day and maybe it won't be in the distant future. 

The items on today's written To Do list? We shall see.

  1. Days like that are such a divided victory. You do get stuff done, just not exactly the stuff you had in mind. I was also going to take care of the reflections post today, but, well, uhm...

  2. Oh I can write a to do list and then realize I got sidetracked and didn't finish most of it. At least some are planted or ready to be:)

  5. I finally got around to writing my challenge, and I am glad to see you took a gardening break from blogging. I went to the dentist, which was much needed.

    1. Today's the dentist and a bunch of errand running afterwards. I'll get to the reflections today. Maybe. :-)

  6. It's called the 'to-do tango' One step forward, several sideways, a couple to the rear, a bit of a diagonal, rinse and repeat!
