Putter around doing small projects; fixing, tidying, arranging. Organize things, clear out old clothes for donation, sweep out the dog bed. Avoid annoying people who are grieving, ill or suffering with chirpy “can do” pep talks, you’ll just get in trouble. You must improve something, however, so work […]
