Arrived about 2:30 and have unloaded car and put most things away. And started supper, though it will wait until R gets home...Whenever. He was home by 7:30 last night, when I phoned, thinking I might be home; assured me he would not be so early tonight. I may fall asleep. There are only a few dishes in the sink. Watered a bunch of almost too dry plants, and snipped another geranium cutting.

Saturday aft, I took the new pots to the shop, including some polka dot - cookie cutter - ceramic bunnies with gold cords for hanging on tree? or wherever. They look cute!

Left Beaver in good order with sheets changed and dishes washed. Pottery stuff everywhere but that's OK.

I need to make a check list for by the front door lest I forget an essential in the getting-ready-to-leave mode. I was afraid
I had missed "close bathroom door" last time and texted neighbour to check as she passed by. She kindly did and it was fine but my brain is no longer "sharp as a tack".

Today, I gravely miscalculated gas consumption and need for washroom - both! Got off highway, thinking I would not make it to next service centre, and miscalculated where I was re civilization - read that GAS Station! As both became desperate, I stopped where there were a lot of houses and parked cars - nobody home anywhere! But across the street, I saw a dog - loose! As I crossed over toward it, it stayed inside its "fence"! and appeared to have a human. Very kind human let me use washroom and looked at my dash info and assured me I could manage the few km to the promised gas station. He did not have any -hoped for- gas for lawnmower as he had put it in his car! I made it and then life looked better. Note to self: Fill up the tank! (Remembering a former mudcatter who admonished me, as I set off across CA, "Always refill when it is only half empty!") I just hate stopping!

Now, relaxing with fire in stove!
