Dorothy Parshall De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life 2019 - 2020 (1850* d) RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life 2019 - 2020 25 Sep 20


Dupont:

Still here, waiting for load of firewood but R says he can be here for it so maybe. I was planning to leave Weds but the woman caring for the house we wanted to see had to get a covid test. We went today. It is very interesting. Lots of room, nice garage- "Pottery studio!" Beautiful back yard with some raised beds and lovely trees. Close to a road that is moderately busy, across from the river with "water frontage" - so steep it would need a staircase to get to the water. In good shape with lots of pieces needing completion, lots of possibilities, a great "plant room" facing east. And only about 5 minutes further for R to get to work. But more expensive. We are thinking about it. We love Dupont but I think we would also love the 1780 house with fireplace and exposed stone walls in places. I see it as more usable space as I cannot deal with the cellar here. I need to be above ground!

SRS: Installing the wood stove here was $1500 CAD for a chimney - two stories! R already had the Jotul. And $150 to get the chimney cleaned before hand.

The most important thing I have accomplished is voting! I managed to connect the printer to the computer with Wifi but could not get the scanner to function. No response at either Epson or Applehelp, I called my son but he could not help either. I tried the office supply store (Staples/Bureau en Gros) but in the end I begged help at the library. And off the packet went! Then I no longer felt as though I had an elephant on my head. I will try to address the printer problem before next year.

It is cool enough for a fire but I suspect we shall soon be asleep.

Mudcat friend sent me a link to a wonderful pottery youtube and I was up til after midnight last night viewing youtubes. It just never occurred to me to go that route for info.
