Got a review copy of Claire Wolfe’s and Kit Perez’s Basics of Resistance, which I was eager to read and also now sort of obligated to read right now. Got through the first third of it yesterday evening, with notes, and thought today would be a leisurely matter of finishing that and then writing and posting a review.
Phone rings. “Can you help us with hay?”
Sure, can do. Jumped in the Jeep. Little Bear liked this part. He got a Jeep ride, got to bark at D&L’s dogs, with whom he may not mingle because in this case mingle = rumble. He and possibly the closest small animal vet would enjoy that, nobody else would. But still. Jeep ride. LB stamp of approval.
25 bales of hay later,…
Got to Ian’s and was reminded of correspondence I’d completely forgotten…
Was that pile of cement board supposed to go on the pile of stuff outside Landlady’s barn waiting for a trip to the county dump? And on that subject – is Landlady coming up this weekend? Because that would mean the dump run(s) is/are happening tomorrow, which means there are certain trailer-related things I should be doing right now.
Flurry of text messaging ensues. Yes, I am supposed to have the trailer on-site and ready to go. Yes, I should be doing that right now. And also in the process I need to move that pile of cement board. Right now.
I’m a hermit. Scheduling conflicts aren’t in my normal routine like they used to be, and I didn’t always handle them well when they were routine.
Ah, well. I will get that book read today. And by “today,” I mean this calendar date. I will post a review ASAP, and that’s as much as I promise.
