Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019
We had a rather unexpected thunderstorm around midnight and my informal rain gauge shows over 2" accumulation. So my gardening is delayed, though I think I'll see about transplanting some iris today while I can still tell what color some of them were.

My daughter is at a Society for Creative Anachronism campout this weekend and sent a photo of the pancakes she is making for her tentmates. She grew up eating pancakes (both regular and buttermilk) I made from a 1970s Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, with my own modification of thinning the batter (more like Swedish pancakes). A couple of years ago she texted, asking for the recipe, then proceeded to make a mound of pancakes for dinner for her housemates (and of course, posted it on Instagram). It's a much requested dish, apparently. And when you're camping out they taste even better. I hope, Michelle, that you're having Jeremiah start learning to cook the foods that he really likes to eat. That's a great starting point for his future adult life.

I took Poppy off of the medication she was on, the last dose yesterday morning, and she's still not eating, but she's perkier. I gave her more broccoli this morning to tempt her to eat something. She is a about 10 pounds overweight, so it won't hurt her to have a few days with broccoli and water, but I'm hoping once it wears off she'll be back to her normal crotchety self (eating her favorite food and ignoring the senior food.)
