Dorothy Parshall De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life 2019 - 2020 (1850* d) RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019 08 Sep 19


Managed a "yard sale weekend" without spending too much and without acquiring anything useless. A "new" fender for fireplace is terrific and the one that was there is gone to somewhere - out of this house! The treasure hunt is fun and most of the people were rather fun. There is a dozen small, wood once-were-drawers that need to find homes - they are so nicely made!... Some year we will have a yard sale.

Towels racks in powder room! Need two more, for potential guests, but at least we two have our spots. And R moved a chair to give me access to stuff in closet - of course the chair is now in the upstairs hall on its way to ? And the too large cabinet is still in the TV/sewing room and the better one is still in downstairs hall. We need a handy helper...

I had hopes of more progress: part of the hole for large shrub was dug by R, and more weeds cleared by both of us, AND, our neighbour who offered the other day to mow the front yard (and we said not to bother), did it while we were in the house today! I went back out and... It looked different! OK! I guess he felt it was past due! Happily, I had put a tomato cage over the tiny oak tree so it did not get mowed! Keep this in mind for next year! We prefer not to offend our neighbours.

It was chilly and gloomy today and I could not get energy for much; just pecked away at yard work. My hopes that the moldy walls in the basement would be cleaned, by R---- R had a 2 pm appointment to show a rental space; at 4 he phoned that they had not yet appeared but had sent 3 texts. No word since. How incredibly rude people are. This means we cannot turn off the fan which is pulling moldy air out of the house. It is getting chilly. Instead of closing drapes to keep the sun out, I am opening them to obtain solar gain!

I had hoped to go to Beaver yesterday but R took time off to be at home, a rarity these last months, And I realize I have much to do here so I shall put it off for another week. There, I only need to stack firewood before snow which I hope does not come before October! Prefer November!!
