Filling the hours

(SitNews) Klawock, Alaska – One would think that with fewer obligations it would be easier to attack the day and accomplish lists of tasks before tapering down to dinner then reading a chapter from a book about fly fishing in Chile before bed.
With a gap in my substituting schedule looming, that’s exactly what I thought. A couple Saturdays mid-week would be perfect for adding to word counts, practicing my D-loop at the river, and whatever else needed to be done.
But what I found was after waking up at my usual time incase there was a call, I spent the next hour or so puttering around in my own thoughts, sort of working on a column, kinda focused on my weekly grad school readings then bringing in firewood. By the time I got serious about a specific daily mission it was already mid-morning.
