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


Computer/modem malfunctioned and I copied previous post then turned off computer. Now I am back on line but lost what I copied. Oh well.

We all survived the family visit. They took one large box of pottery which barely made a dent. ... They left yesterday by way of a bagel factory near Montreal where they obtained a supply to take home to PA. They arrived home safely and texted me that they were cutting the bagels (in half for freezer) and had been home 20 minutes! I had that much energy 25 years ago.

Now R and I are returning to our solitary life, dealing with furnace that keeps quitting; son says new relays - not simple. So R goes to cellar and fiddles until it goes on again. ... He has just gone to work for first time in a week as he has been recovering from CO poisoning from driving fork lift with faulty exhaust. This bout has impressed him sufficiently (2nd time in a month) that he will NOT do that again. Researching it is impressive; it can cause problems down the road - big ones. He will be going for those test the Dr suggested a while back. Blood test re iron level to see if he can take Floradix to improve health - without getting iron poisoning!

I have a refurbished Apple laptop on order (Jan 6) and son bought me pieces to connect laptop to TV as well as get a bunch of programs - I wrote down instructions and suspect I might figure it out eventually.

The boys watched some while they were here. Of course, they each had a laptop and a smart phone... There was an octopus of charging cables in the LR! Family spent a lot of time in Montreal and a lot of time on devices. DIL read quietly wherever she could find a spot. The house served well for 6 individuals - room to be alone or with others. K worked as they ate what they ate and we ... No overlap except C dinner and a last dinner at a local very nice Indian Rest.

I enjoyed them being here other than the stress of DIL (she behaved fine but I was never sure).

Brugmansia bloomed for them - they were not impressed! But R and I are. It has a dozen or more in various stages of opening. A delight - last thing at night and first in the am.

Thinking of Michelle, Pete and Jeremiah and the stress of their life. Hoping the new year brings them healing.
