I'm sorry about that, Susan. Dorothy, it's good to get to know your neighbors! I met a young woman in the next block who has moved in with her mother. I used to speak to her father regularly when I first moved here because he was a dog walker like me, but he passed away in 2002. The introduction was easy:

"Is that Emma?"
"Yes!"
"I remember when your father used to walk her."

Instant joy in meeting someone who knew her father.

I rearranged some shelves in the office, but am not satisfied I've used the space as well as can be. I'm preparing to start taking things off of the old computer to add to the new one, so I'll need some counter space in here, that's why the rearranging first. Also the installation of software that I'll need once I make the move. And I'm still researching some of the moving/sharing possibilities with software.

Two cases (out of four I was originally given) of quart canning jars and lids are now listed on a Facebook "Buy Nothing" group dedicated to not buying things if they can be offered up by group members. I have used a few, and I'll keep an extra case but I'm thinning the supply by half. And the items culled last week that no one wanted over the weekend are headed to Goodwill. I had an early taker on the jars, a group member who describes herself as a stay-home mom working on crafting projects for sale in her area. Whatever works!
