Georgian term or phrase: ერთ ქვასაც კი არ ჩააგდებდა
Another literature question. I'd like to check that I've correctly understood the grammatical structure of this sentence:

მარიკა იყო მოსაწყენი, ერთ ქვასაც კი არ ჩააგდებდა ყოველდღიურობის მდინარეში, რომ რაღაცით მაინც აეღელვებინა ყოფის ჩვეული სვლა.

I think it means "Marika was bored, and yet she would not throw even one stone into ... in order to somehow stir up the mundane course of her existence"

i.e. even though she was bored, she wouldn't do anything to change her situation.

Thanks in advance as usual!
