Dorothy Parshall De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life 2019 - 2020 (1850* d) RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life 2019 - 2020 30 Jun 20


R is still in kidney stone mode; until that finishes there will be no - ever so longed for - trip to Beaver.

The cross the street neighbours took out the 8-10 foot high hedge between the two drives. The view from my usual chair in the Den is vastly deteriorated; instead of the lovely old cedar hedge - 3 or more vehicles, a camping trailer, a not too bad small building and the back porch and side of house - not terrible. But now there is a 24/7 light on the bloomin' trailer. I am trying to adjust plants on the sill to block the view without losing the nice breeze --- now that the weather is blissfully cooler. I realize they did it to gain space; we sure miss that hedge!

We have also had wonderful rain a couple times. I lost a tiny hydrangea to the dry - it looked as though it was getting ready to bloom and then it looked totally dried out - lack of attention. The squash flowers all gave up - no water, no squash. They can try again; the plants are still healthy. But everything is showing its happiness to have water! - lettuce, beans et al.

The stores here, at least those I use, have online sites with a chart showing how busy they are throughout the day. So, needing stuff, I checked several times yesterday and went off to the produce store at 6pm. Bought groceries in an almost empty store and went to check the plants adjacent - already end of season sale! but nothing suitable. I want to use some very large clay pots filled part way with styrofoam and then 6-8 inches of soil for potted geraniums (keeping them in 5" pots). I wanted to infill with something droopy and flowering. May try a nursery today if it is empty of people.

That does it! I have to put a sheer curtain across that window, just the bottom 15 inches! Too ugly looking at all that.

Today is day 8 of being hyper careful of eating. NO choc -let it run out; no cookies - R put them where I don't see them. I actually feel better. I also feel hungry a good part of each day but am managing pretty well so far.

Thanks for the spelling, SRS! I always wonder but close enough... In any case, my hummus has been a treat on a big bowl of lettuce with a dollop of salsa mixed in.

Now, a curtain!
