Dorothy Parshall De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life 2019 - 2020 (1850* d) RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life 2019 - 2020 12 Nov 20


Drove down to the "mill" yesterday, the last warm day until ??? Picked up 2 glazes, dried out in their buckets so no mess! Just add water when I get them to Beaver. Also a bunch of sundry items that I am hoping to re-home here or at Beaver. Did not, however, find my box of Marie Corelli books and rue the day I left them "right there" and have not seen them since. Also thought there was a ghetto blaster there but no luck.

From the Mill, I went to visit a friend, sitting in her garage, out of the wind. Then to a fruit farm but it has little left but apples and I have enough of those; the lovely Anglophone owner, gave me a card so I can phone if I want more apples, which I shall. Then to the bakery in St. Antoine for a new Dark Choc Cake and two baklava. (1/2 is adequate!) Then stopped to visit Rita and Dan who were entertaining a neighbour's 4 chickens - with the fallout from their bird feeder! The back to Chateauguay - tired and happy.

Thinking about shed: Maybe Joe (teaches construction) knows someone who could build one on site? or MAYBE I could enclose a piece of the cellar and install dehumidifier and air cleaner. Later today, I shall don a respirator and visit the cellar - very carefully. Check to see if phone gets a signal (safety factor). Would certainly be less expensive --- but no place to show finished wares.

Put fire in stove when I got home; as nice as it was outside, the house was cool. Still coals this am so it is nicely perking away. I am challenged to see how long I can keep from turning the heat up - and save on electric!

Wonderful neighbour, Charmion! My Friend Larry has admitted to diminishing power in the five years. I was happy to do the washstand myself and not call for help!

I have a couple Pear tree seedlings (3 inches!) from the pears bought at Petits Cailloux in the early fall. The owner was delighted at this info.

Now to unload the car.
