Dorothy Parshall De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life 2019 - 2020 (1850* d) RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life 2019 - 2020 07 May 20


I manage to get bits accomplished: one upper inside window that was really yucky for some reason - washed, two bathroom sinks scrubbed, a few weeds pulled for a few minutes a couple times a day - all the bending over I can do. My hope for today was to mow at least a part of the back yard BEFORE the dandelions get big enough to be cut. By the time I figured out where I might plug in the mower, I ran out of energy.

LONG phone call with youngish musician friend who is trying to feel where her life is going. But she is putting last touches on a new CD and people are buying on line!!

Mudcat solved a puzzle for me: Who wrote Go Down Dancing. It was really bugging me. Then I could look on line - but no youtube. Next trip to the mill, maybe I will find my LPs.

Our dryer also MUST be closed properly! And I am glad to not have cat or dog hairs - except then I would HAVE to clean the floors better! The rads were warm this am for the first time in a while - OR maybe we gave up noticing! R: but I wanted it NOT working for someone to come see!!! It is warm enough now that it was no longer a problem. If I found it too cool, fire in stove!

R finally removed a useless, large "piece of furniture", so the den looks better - room for the brass wood holder and box of kindling
and the double doors can open properly. He also cleaned up back yard and started sorting junk left behind in garage.

My dinosaur grave/front yard is nicely sprinkled with flowers and more to come. Monday it may be safe to plant the tomato, pepper and squash plants. I hope to have the guts to look at Botanix for seeds and a few veggie plants. I have gotten good at obtaining groceries by delivery!! I would like to wear an astronaut suit when I go out there.

Not wanting to purchase any old maple syrup at the grocery, I emailed a friend who has an orchard in southern Quebec and a home in Toronto.
Was he going back and forth?; could he drop off syrup in Chateauguay? Return email: Tomorrow! So I met him at a gas station where he could get off and back on the highway. We exchanged a few sentences but NO hug! I cried driving home. But glad that he and wife are being super careful, like us.

After spending a lot of time at home for a few weeks, R has started going to work - 12 hour days. But no contact with people except bro and Dan - both hyper careful. He no longer complains about washing!
