Fairly Productive

I had an insanely busy week, full of last minute meetings. By Friday I was completely worn out and not particularly productive.

Fortunately, I made a better start on the weekend. I took 52 books over to McKay's Saturday morning. They took 43 of them, which meant that it wasn't worth running around to the other used bookstores I trade at. I used the credit to get 10 books, which is a good ratio from the standpoint of decluttering. When I got home, I discovered that one of those was a duplicate, with another copy sitting in the unread stack, so I already have a start on the next box to go out.

The weather was good and I was already in Manassas, so I went over to the Battlefield and did the year round Volksmarch there. It consists pretty much of two of the trails - the Henry Hill trail and the First Manassas Trail. Since I've done this walk before, I didn't feel the need to reread every information sign. There were a few parts of the latter trail which were icy or muddy, but it really wasn't bad for January. And walking is always destressing for me.

I also managed to drop off dry cleaning, go to the supermarket, and read most of the Sunday Post. My ambitions for today include laundry and finishing cleaning out my desk drawer.
