Not much

I wondered if someone asked me ne yap覺yorsun? And I answered çok eyler yapm覺yorum, how does that sound for an answer? I would say this if I´m not busy and don´t have plans that day but I´m not exactly bored or doing nothing. I think some people would answer hiç but that sounds to me like the person is bored. I´ll admit I´m trying to answer with the English ´not much´ but in Turkish.

You can say; birey yapt覺覺m söylenemez.

Like a translation of this.

Q: What are you up to today?

A: Not much.

I would say; Bir ey yapmayaca覺m bugün. I won´t do anything today.

- Bugün ne yap覺yorsun?

- Pek bir ey yapm覺yorum.

(not engaged in doing anything but busy with some small routine tasks, yet not bored..)

It sounds OK. Kind of an answer you might as well hear from a native speaker...
