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

Some days all I accomplish are "little things". It is amazing how many little things there are to accomplish. But yesterday I mostly waited for the rain - prayed for the rain!, so I would not have to haul buckets of water to the new plantings. I guess we got about 2 inches! It was beautiful! And again today. And again I feel so fortunate to live where water is - so far - more than adequate!

Today's "little thing" was to re-organize a cabinet and a corner of BR. I doing so, I created a homeless situation for a family of beautiful golden brown weasels!!!!! Tomorrow, I shall have to try to figure out where they re-located! I told them to go outside and left the door open all afternoon but I doubt they have left. They did chew up some nice fabric to make their home...

Pots are trimmed now and drying. Hopes of bisque firing in a couple days. It is supposed to be dry tomorrow, so I can push the drying and try to fire on Sunday. The big hope is that the kiln will give me a bisque firing, or two. If I need to go to Quebec to do glaze firings - inconvenient but doable. 14 days until son and wife arrive in Montreal!!!!

I am back to the effort of losing weight... With the pottery crisis under control, I can focus on more yard work - good exercise! Well, so is potting but not for the whole body like the stretching and bending of weeding and digging. If I can just keep the chocaholism under control. I have found that one brownie, or half of one sometimes, will prevent the overdose of 100-200 gms of healthy dark choc. Sometimes.
