Dorothy Parshall De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life 2019 - 2020 (1850* d) RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019 30 Aug 19


Euonymous is wonderful in Quebec! So is September! Gorgeous Day!

Yesterday, the new double mattress arrived; it is made up and the bed looks beautiful. New towels for two on bed as---- this morning a text from Magda indicates she and Stevie may arrive tonight!! What luck! The room is pretty good except for broken roll top which takes up TOO much room and is ugly. and no surface to put things so I put a chair in there. Maybe Steve and R can bring a bureau in that is not being used upstairs. Room in the closet. The guest rooms are on first floor in the addition, which also contains the only bath room - until we get the one on second floor - if I live that long.

I picked up two lovely Roxanne and a red tender Hibiscus this am - $10! Really marked down! Repotted the H in a nice 15 inch pot and will put it in a south window on second floor. One Roxanne planted, behind the BIG rocks and draped over, and one blue chip juniper, in front of rocks - ouchy! Soil is moderately malleable, using pick and spade, and the "weed barrier" is not so bad; I cleared a space for the euonymous; R offered to dig some holes!! This plant will take both of us to get it from pot to hole! Still have 3 blue chip. 3 day lily, a tiny mock orange and ? to plant. Might manage two more today. The hosta I want to move have started to bloom - Oh well! And I need to do something about the @#$%^trumpet vines. Will try to make a couple standards and murder the rest --- YEAH, I know it cannot be murdered, just re-cut back every year - forever!

Laundry done, our bed re-made. Moved A/c from BR to back closet -lovely to have closets!- and put low cabinet back in front of window, with a sheet of glass on top - for the hibiscus! R needs to carry it upstairs.

Picked up a heavy, lined drape at thrift shop for the north hall window - to keep the heat in!

And transporting these plants in my beautiful clean new car --- not so clean now! But the house is pretty good- not for a picky middle class home maker but for us.
