Dorothy Parshall De-clutter & Fitness in a Pandemic: 2021 (1226* d) RE: De-clutter & Fitness in a Pandemic: 2021 30 Sep 21


Here six years last April: Have no keys for either front or back door. Have a motion sensitive front light for coming home at night. The heavy rain turned it on recently! I have an onyz box on the end of the K counter nearest the door; if someone needs to get paid for work: "I'll put it in the box." Good neighbours!

Hydro at Dupont: only the main part of house was disconnected so R ran extension from the other side for frig and freezer. He has only been home about one day in three; working night and day to get stuff done before winter! He waters plants and picks lots of tomatoes! We have agreed it is better for me to stay here so he is free to not come home! I am happy to be here.

Got some pots thrown on Tuesday - finally! Low energy level may be due to heavy weather, concern for 90 year old friend - now resolved! - and the amount of time and energy it took to get house tidier for company! I also pulled an essential muscle and am spending much time on heating pad. Love my new-to-me duvet - light and cozy! Wood stove is working well and is needed - but not greatly. Unloaded two boxes of beautiful red cedar lumber scraps on a member of the Stewardship Council who thought he could find a group that would use it for bird houses. He kindly came and picked it up.

Still considering most effective ways to move on fabric pieces of various sorts that I have clearly decided are no longer "needed". Lawnmower is still in K waiting for pick-up. And the back yard is still waiting for Steve "this week". As much as I love nature, it has become overwhelming; I need space and want to be able to see the burbling brook!

Today I met a neighbour I did not know existed! She stopped to talk with Jim and dog; I thought it was Sue's truck but not; she lives on a track just past Sue. Jim says she lives in a tiny trailer without hydro, back in the bush and gives occasional workshops on mushrooms and other stuff. I invited her to stop in for a cup of tea but forgot to ask if she is "double vaxed". I will ask if she stops by. I hope so because I would love to chat with her.
