There is no work in my transcription queue today, which is very odd. Yesterday was light, too, but at least I managed to get close to my line count by dinnertime. It makes me wonder if something is wrong with the dictation system on the doctors' end. My account manager agrees that this is unusual, but she also let me know that we are getting some new doctors on this account so there should be plenty of work in the coming weeks.
Oh well. I was able to catch up on some stuff that's been hanging around my desk.
I went out to the garden to get some lettuce for a salad for lunch. Some of the lettuce under the row covers is bolting pretty badly, so I pulled it up and took it over to the clucks. The chick is out in the chicken yard (a fenced and roofed area off the coop) pretty much all day every day now. The husband had to rig up a barrier system along the bottom of the chicken yard because the chick was simply waltzing through the openings in the wire and wandering around the big yard. The husband went out the other day and found the chick in my herb garden. We do not want it getting picked off by a hawk or one of the dogs, so now it is confined and—thus far—has not figured out how to get out again.
It's always something around here.
I took some time this morning to go downstairs and clean and organize my stash room. I have a lot of yarn, and it needed some taming. It also gave me a chance to prioritize my projects, although I am pretty limited in terms of time right now. Mostly I like scarves and shawls and afghans that do not tax my brain too much. I do have to say that it is nice not to have to "design on demand," as I had been doing for the past 10 years.
And now it's back to laundry and cleaning.
