Feels like I’ve got a bit too much on my plate right now. Tonight’s boardgame night, so I need to get everything packed up before dinner. “Pack up what?”, I hear you say. Well, I’m spending the next couple of days digging & sieving test pits in a cave near Enköping where a Bronze Age spearhead has been found. While I’m there I’m also going to do half a day or so of renewed metal detecting at one of the hoard sites that proved non-productive back in April. The farmer has ploughed and harrowed the spot so new stuff may have emerged up into detector reach. During fieldwork I also have to host & chair a board meeting with the Skeptics and make sure somebody gets Juniorette to school and back every day for her first week of second grade.
The week after that I need to prepare a talk on the picture stones of Gotland, hand in a short book review and copy-edit the contents of the Skeptic Society’s quarterly. And then, 2½ weeks from now, I’m off to Visby for a symposium about those picture stones.
All I can do now is list the things I’ve got to do in priority order and focus on them one at a time. What about you, Dear Reader? Got a lot to fix these days?
