But mostly she and Tol stayed home and stayed busy in the leisurely way of people who know exactly what they have to do and how to do it and have got used to doing it, and who don’t have to do too much. From That Distant Land, by Wendell Berry

Have you got used to doing it?
Do you do much, not too much or too much?
