Dorothy Parshall De-clutter & Fitness in a Pandemic: 2021 (1198* d) RE: De-clutter & Fitness in a Pandemic: 2021 27 Apr 21


Dupont:

Well, the income tax with note to "just tell me what to pay and I will" - and other comments!, went out this am after I found a "post office" for a stamp. I resent having to go into a convenience store to buy a stamp. Bancroft has a real PO but Chateauguay ... Checked the internet and tried to go to a different one but the address did not exist. A large apartment complex was under construction! The lengthier than expected trip also sought garden soil and cheese bread. No cheese bread at the only possible and soil - still under consideration. Cannot really plant anything for another couple weeks anyway. Rather frustrating morning.

As for pottery sites. SRS. You nailed it: Mill: one big kick wheel, two kilns and a couple defunct ones and some raw materials and glazes; Dupont: one new wheel and some clay and a few ready-to-fire pots so far; Beaver: the whole enchilado! And I am getting very anxious to get home!

The changing of the tires - next Weds, down near the mill, and an appointment to sell a couple more pots if it is safe. Then consideration of the feasibility of going to Ontario based on whether or not I will be able to come back into Quebec. Dependent on Ontario getting its covid under control.

In the meantime- Oops! clothes in washer (at least I did something useful!). Pots to trim and make more. Sprinkled epsom salt on the front garden and will do more later, before the next rains. I buy it wholesale in 50# bag for hot baths. Have lots for garden - one cup per 100 sf, said the internet. I will dose the houseplants as well. I lost about 10 geraniums to the recent frost; I thought they would endure! But there are many still in the house. A project for another day. I am not up to dealing with frosted geraniums today. I take delight in the charming little pear tree with its bronzey leaves. May start some more from the Bosc pears I used Sunday. Plan to keep this guy potted until it gets too large; would hate it to get nibbled like the cherries!

Clothes to drier!
