Writers used to keep extra copies of their published works in order to send tear sheets in as examples of their work when pitching articles to editors. Now with scanners and PDFs they can be shared digitally. Over time some of mine are dated so this week I did a major thinning of those documents and sent at least a linear foot of magazines and brochures to the recycle bin. The contractor's bag was bulging, mostly with paper and cardboard, collected around the house this week. I've compressed my published stuff down to a single shelf.
The yard is dry as tinder now, it needs to be mowed, but since it isn't growing it won't get any worse. I'll get around to it one of these days. There's a possibility of rain over the weekend, but the ten-day outlook is more promising, with a projected high of 87o on the 31st. One of these days I have to thin the iris beds and I have a list of people who would like some. That has to wait until cooler weather and after a good soaking rain. I did a one-off cat feeding chore for a friend tonight and stopped for some ceviche on the way home so no cooking was required for dinner. It's too hot to cook.
Dorothy, you have been productive. I had to delay my planned fence work due to the ceiling, but at least these projects are all on one property, not scattered all over the Province.
