Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
We have an alarm system that emails us when the patio door is left open for more than five minutes. The neighbours think it's close to overkill, but I think losing the family silver once (October 1983) is warning enough for a lifetime.

On the bright side, the cold I caught in Connecticut last weekend is on the wane and breakfast actually tasted of food (instead of nothing). Having been to the gym already, I shall now make a chicken salad for lunch, fold and stow the bed linen I washed yesterday, and put on another brassée de lavage. (I would rather do laundry in French, a language in which one's socks and underwear are brewed.)

Spring has most assertively sprung in Perth County, and our garden is full of periwinkle and forget-me-nots. How cool is that?
