Dorothy Parshall De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life 2019 - 2020 (1850* d) RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life 2019 - 2020 29 Oct 20


I guess I have been working through some stuff. Watching lots of pottery youtubes and even asked a potter friend, "HOW do you...?" and gathering ideas, and materials/tools that can help me try some new ideas. Also, the 1780 house IS sold; I drove by a week or so ago and saw "VENDU" on the sign and had a moment of desolation, then, realizing R was in no state to have bought it, I moved on to relief that I no longer need to think about it - that is a major de-clutter!

But next concern comes back: the need for a place to pot here. Looked for a second hand garden shed and realized: not going to settle for something unsuitable and, anyway, R does not have time to help; he is up to his eyeballs de-cluttering his business life, taking truckloads of stuff to the scrapyard and organizing the rest - 10 hour days. A deadline looms. I will bring the small wheel back from Beaver and set up in a spare room here.

So, having done lots of pottery when I was at Beaver, I am stuck here and really needed to take in hand my need to DO something. And, if I make them, how do I get rid of them in the midst of covid safety?

Friends near Beaver are renting a space for Nov and Dec for a cooperative selling venue and I am in. Last eve I started packing up pots and will load the car today, added to the stuff I picked up at the mill yesterday. Maybe I will even get the DR back to normal before I leave. Leaving for Beaver tomorrow for as long as it takes to feel I am ready to come back for a visit!

Decided to pot the pepper plants today and bring them in. There is room in the TV room, an east window. It is going below freezing most nights now. OK: pot peppers, make applesauce for R, finish packing pots and load car...

No word from Dr re tests so I am assuming health. No more problems either. Promise I am being very careful.

Turned the heat on yesterday to about 60F. This is a big house and expensive to heat. I have been keeping a fire in the wood stove and the den has been toasty but not the rest. There is a cube heater in the Bathroom. And a throw in the TV room!
