Saturday Single No. 393

No time to dally today! A full day of tasks lies ahead, followed this evening by the annual meeting of our Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. Shortly after I finish here, I’ll be picking up two newly hemmed tablecloths downtown and delivering them to the fellowship building across town.

Then I’ll make a quick run to the hardware store and pick up a few corner brackets, and I’ll come back home and once again try my hand at simple construction. Last year, my project was a frame on which to grow cucumbers. This year, I’m building two planter boxes – four feet square – in which the Texas Gal is going to grow strawberries.

And once those boxes are finished, I’m sure there will be things for me to do. After all, the month of May is unreeling, and the gardens are calling the Texas Gal. When the gardens call her, she often calls me. And I don’t mind one bit.

So as I prepare for tablecloth delivery and all the rest, I have sorted the mp3s for the word “work.” And even though the track is focused on a different type of working, Sweathog’s “Working My Way Back Home” from its 1972 album Hallelujah sounded very good this morning. And that’s why it’s today’s Saturday Single.
