I had to Google "sack truck" and have to admit that the term I use will probably be as obscure to you - the term "dolly" is used fairly interchangeably between your "sack truck" and the flat padded wheeled device for moving large objects. Also "hand truck." Furniture dolly.

We finally got more rain overnight and the next couple of days are forecast to be wet. It's humid and overcast, a typical day in a rainy sequence here in Texas. I put seeds in the prepared pots on the workbench beside the side door, and should be able to start planting them in the cataract surgery interim.

I have an external hard drive that is dying and needs to be replaced; it gums up the good functioning of the computer when it's plugged in at startup. I need to move the contents soon. Virtual declutter.

On a personal care note, I have two pairs of "leverback" earrings that I have worn alternately over the last 15 months because the hook closes and they aren't likely to be flicked out of the pierced ear hole and lost when I'm moving my mask on or off. I pampered myself with my Amazon credit card points toward a third pair. For now all of my French hook earrings languish in the box I use for jewelry, a silverware box I found at a garage sale (with the treated silvercloth lining so my earrings, chains, and bracelets don't tarnish since most are sterling silver). The seller brought it home from the department store where she worked but never used it. My gain. This cabinet is one level, but I've seen boxes with a lower drawer in the cabinet that would let me separate items more. These things are expensive new, but they turn up regularly at estate sales and sometimes at Goodwill. I have a couple of old ones from family estates I should look at, maybe bundle the antique silver into a single piece of sliver cloth and bring the box into my dressing room. I enjoy repurposing things like that.
