Dorothy Parshall De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life 2019 - 2020 (1850* d) RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019 04 Jul 19


Daniel Amen is a great fav of mine: terrific work on ADHD and went on to major good ideas for everyone.

SRS is a very moving person! I used to do those sorts of moving things before I got to 75 and started feeling "old". The WILL is the trick!

Today, Super YAY! I came home from shopping: exhaust fan for upstairs, magnetic curtain rod for metal door with BIG window facing south, bigger, nicer mailbox, and exploration of a store to which I had not been before - the fan was $5 cheaper than local store but the trip cost about $2 in gas. An adventure.

At home, I found Robin and Lorenzo and a riding mower: the lawn is well mowed (part of the back left in field, producing grass seed!) and all the books and excess furniture is out of the addition, into basement - ready for the two rooms to be become guest rooms! Time to go for another mattress. We have a single brass bed, with mattress, for the smaller room and waiting for a double brass bed for the other. Still need room for one more in case son and two grandsons arrive!

The "mitten cabinet" is now on 2nd floor in to-be-bathroom, it's intended home. We think. We now refer to rooms as what they are or are going to be: "R's office" still needs furniture and computer. TV/sewing/reading room is pretty good, 2nd floor t-b-bath is bare other than the mitten cabinet! That is a long term project!

The heat has me indoors and very still. 33C at 6 pm. Once in a while, I do a few very small things. New set of white drapes (thrift shop $12) will go in front guest room, rods in place. A lacy curtain from there will go on door. I am using any piece of fabric I have that can work to keep the sun outside! For winter, I may be looking for heavier drapes to keep the heat in!

Dishes need washing - later. I can usually think about supper around 8 pm. Wash dishes while cooking.

LOVE new car! So glad the old one died before the trip to Connecticut!! The cruise control was great - NOT breaking down somewhere in New England was even greater!!
