Two trivial tasks

| Health and happiness | 2 Comments

So how long has it been now that I've been postponing those two simple tasks? Half a year at least, I should think.

I'm still not sure what finally got into me, but this afternoon during a fanciful spark of inspiration, I decided to do them. To replace the outside vent for the dryer, and then to re-attach the metal latch to the window so that it can be kept open properly.

In total the two activities took me about six minutes, maybe less. Six minutes over a period of half a year is not very much. That's merely 0.0023% of total time so-called wasted.

I'm feeling so good about myself having accomplished such trivial matters, that I seriously wonder why I hadn't done them long ago if not sooner.


I like the tag on this. And I enjoy your way with words and the things you notice--like in your story about your new golf bag. Sounds corny, but thanks for sharing.
