DUST!!! The mere thought... I dust sporadically as I perceive a need in space. Just did down the sides of the stairs with a damp wash cloth, shook it out side and deposited in laundry. This house does not seem to gather too much, very fast. Even the pottery that was sitting out for a few months did not show any. I do have a heavy duty air cleaner going 24/7. And I damp mop the wood floors one I feel inclined.

On this glorious day, I cut the dead peony leaves and some darned stuff that looks similar to a hydrangea but is ugly as sin (IMO).

Stopped at a shed making place on the way here on Saturday. Beautiful solid wood. Have sort of found a spot for one and showed R today, for his consideration. This will be dicier than C's car! Deciding about the costs and logistics and what size I might be able to afford - including getting it here! In no case scenario can I have one before Spring.

The river is largely decluttered of floating docks and boats. Lovely! Now the geese, ducks and seagulls are taking over - much nicer. Even if it does mean winter is not far. In fact, about 5 days away.

R ate most of the food I left, thawed as he needed and eating it for BF and supper! So, I am preparing to cook a bunch more in prep for next absence - which will be subject to weather report. Shopped at both stores this am - mostly empty! Frig is full. Prob will not need to shop again for a couple weeks.

Will do a load of laundry later, including sheets, then remake bed. And make cauliflower soup. Maybe I will be inspired to reduce the sewing...

Our beautiful new wash stand made it from my car - I managed to get in in by myself - to the hallway this am. Maybe tonight it will get to the upstairs bath and the thing there will make it down to the LR.

As for books: I suggested to R this am that it was time for 3-4 boxes to be removed to the "library" in the semi-finished basement. The hallway is getting CLUTTERED!!
