There are some things I could be doing. I could load the truck with stuff for the dump, but then that would require a trip to town (I shudder at the thought). I could clean up the mess in the feed room from Thing's latest rampage, but he'd just throw everything off the shelves again so that would be an exercise in futility. He found a partial roll of paper towels recently and gaily festooned the room. He's just full of surprises. I could wash clothes, but with the clothesline still down, I wait for full loads of laundry to get the best use of the dryer. I could be doing these things, but what I do best is make excuses and wait for sundown and the slight drop in temperature that brings.
It was a good, albeit hot, day. I just didn't get a lot done.
