- a few less errand-type things, since Garth is home, and at the same time, a few more errand-type things, since Garth is home
- garden planning, but not much action yet - but the seeds came, and it's time to start some peppers and onions
- teaching Tai Chi to children at Pheasant Rump (if I'd known it was going to be children, I'd have said no - Tai Chi is too leisurely for children, except the ones who, like me, were born old)
- organizing rehearsals and recruiting singers and practising piano parts for a Good Friday Cantata (volunteers welcome, especially altos, tenors, and basses)
- fretting occasionally about all the other music I should be practising (accompaniments for the kids' music festival solos, organ music for an upcoming wedding - I don't even know what they want yet)
- starting to compose a sermon for Sunday, and realizing that I'll have to come up with all the prayers etc. as well because I let my Gathering Magazine subscription expire
- trying, in fits and starts, to clean up my clutter so I can get these things done more efficiently
- writing out priority lists and schedules which are slowly convincing me that, if I'm going to scrape up some money and renovate this house and expand the garden and build a root cellar and do a lot more food preserving than I've ever done before . . . a lot of the above busy-ness has simply got to go
- reading stuff like Wayne's recent posts about climate change that reinforce my conviction that a lot of the above busy-ness has simply got to go
- enjoying having Garth home . . . gotta do more of that . . .
Skills, people, skills. Practical skills.
