Dorothy Parshall De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life 2019 - 2020 (1850* d) RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019 10 Jul 19


Beginning to wonder WHEN I will get back to Beaver. I miss being there but things are progressing - slowly - here.

Sorry to hear about the spine, Susan! Just one more thing!

I may have forgotten to mention the attic. R took a notion to put up a ladder that was underfoot in his "office", tied it so it would not slide and went up and opened trap door to attic! Large, well kept with a real floor, the old water cistern - tin with wood surround - and a "chimney" to let heat go out!!! He has left it open and the house cools better at night! We are planning to have Dan make us a stairs like the one at Beaver, that can be raised and hooked to the ceiling. Young guests will love the attic - another sleeping space!

Picked up some things from the Mill yesterday - quilts, food stuffs, clothes. Cleared a bureau we will bring on the truck for our BR. Lovely antique in light wood to coordinate. Lunch with Geri, books from library and checked out two thrift shops. Foraging for bedside tables now! Stopping at local shop daily!

Went to Linen Chest today, big sale, to try to get two mattresses but the prices were twice what I paid a few months ago. Bought some very nice sheets for guests and a marvelous huge huggable pillow filled with Australian wool; on sale for $35 (from $75, it was the only one). I view it as a terrific bargain because it is a total delight. Not a bed pillow - the size of four of those! A comfort pillow for cuddling, to sink into! Almost as good as a Bernese Mountain dog!

We plan to bring the futon with nice wood frame from the mill for the TV room, and guests - VERY comfie!

I also bought a weighted "blanket", with removable, washable cover. Expensive but might be good for R ; He likes heavy covers, I can't stand them, but this might work; I can get out from under if it is too much. Helpful for some folks with symptoms of autism. I'll ask him first; ($140!) If it increases serotonin and reduces his stress, it is worth it.

A couple small sofa pillows, good for the small of the back, in off- white with removable covers, were $5 each. An expensive day. And Dan is working on our wood shed at Beaver and fixing the roof!

Still 31C here and I have feet in pan of water. Helps.
