Both yesterday and today, I've done some work that one of my employees would normally do, to free him up a bit. He is actually being promoted and will be going to another department, and in the interim, he's essentially trying to balance two jobs. He certainly could, but I thought doing this work would make things easier for him. He has done a lot to make MY life and our whole department's job easier.
I also did some weeding over the past two days for the plants that are on the border between my neighbor's home and ours. We've never really been sure whose they are; our old neighbor used to care for them, but when she and her husband moved, I had halfheartedly started. As I was weeding, the new neighbor came out and said hello and thanks. He's a younger guy (I mean, my age, I guess, but way younger than the previous neighbor!) and I don't think he's much for gardening, but he was nice about how good it looked.
