I had today off from work, and while I didn’t have the most productive day, I did get a couple of nagging tasks done. First off, I dealt with somewhere between six and eight months of mostly-unopened mail:
Longtime blog readers may recall that once upon a time, I started a quest to eradicate junk mail from my life, and while I’ve been fairly successful, it’s time to update a few of my subscription-killer options, because I’m starting to get catalogs again. I did find a couple of critically important things in the mail – like a $50 check, and my Springsteen tickets for next month – so it felt like a pretty successful undertaking.
I also cleaned out my desk and the junk drawer in my bedroom – neither of which I photographed before getting started – but still, it was quite satisfying to get everything wrangled.
I rewarded myself for getting these tedious projects done with a picnic at Yards Park with my friends. The weather was pleasant, the company enjoyable, the location lovely, and the wine plentiful. A wonderful evening!
