Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
"April 13 and I just switched one of the heat pump units over to A/C. That's depressing." Yep, it sure is! Friends posted pics of the snow in Bancroft this am and Geri is getting it in southern Quebec now. In 2010 we had a dusting on 8 May! Oh well!

I was planning to go to Beaver on Monday - weather permitting.

Gone: box of pic frames, huge hoodie, big bag to thrift shop, nice piece of fabric - took it to Geri to cheer up her LR and she deemed it a future cushion cover. Also gave her an extra lamp shade, moved one to mill for repairs and brought a better one to house; it will be be gone as soon as a better replacement is found.

Went to laundromat, twice, and now R has a good supply of clean clothes. Dishes are done.

Drove past "new house", delighted in "SOLD" sign! Interested in seeing what plants are coming up - none yet! Even though we cannot move until November, I started exploring the new territory - library, shops for fav products, walking trails I might use now that walking is easier, best routes.

R admitted, this am, that he/the business has bought another building. Two hours away??? in a direction we never go??? He will move machinery from a more expensive city location down there - greatly de-clutter expenses! And perhaps cull some in the process? "Part of my master plan." I hope see it next month - if it stops snowing. It comes with 14 acres - down close to Vermont. But I thought he was going to sell ALL those machines in a few years! Oh well. Then he went off to take a load to the scrap yard!

Until he moves the black cabinet and some other things from in front of the bookcase, I am stuck. Until warmer weather when I can sort out the mill stuff, and we can take a load of books to beaver.
