Thread Name: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House

Home on schedule last night. Music was great. Shopped at a large nearby grocery and discovered a new yogurt. Plan to do the whole trip in reverse in two weeks. thanks for solar gain, house was 46F when I got here. First: washroom! then fire in stove and heating pad. Bed was still cold at 9 pm when I was ready for it! moved heating pad to a different section and crawled in.

Today has been clean up - critter got in some how, and out again, thankfully but made a mess of plants. The special rosemary which I wanted to shape is no longer close to the shape! Geranium survived in K! I forgot to put it in warm bathroom. Dipladenia is partly eaten. Af violet is half eaten! The aloe was untouched! Parsley sprouted and is doing OK; moved it to sunlight and opened lid to give it room to grow. Lots of it! Oregano - only a few sprouts OR maybe the opposite!

Mystery is how the animal was in both Bathroom and LR/K; they are separate. Need a consult with neighbour who watered. Hot bath and hair wash!! Two loads of laundry drying in house. Studio went up to 70 with just solar gain. I will put the heater on when it gets back down to 60 so I can possibly work tomorrow. I still need to clear the back deck. There is about 6 inches of frozen snow but supposed to go above freezing this week.

Driving back and forth: My vehicle, a Scion is fairly efficient - about $40 each way. I plan to continue the trips about every two weeks for the summer and fall. Once we have the new house (December)- hopefully - I will spend more time there and less here. Imagine! a house with real heating system! And space! A kitchen that is not falling into the basement. R is so enthralled by it, I feel confident he will keep it in good shape.

Offer went in on house Saturday and response due tonight.
