Robin arrived before Christmas and has de-cluttered tremendous quantities of ice and snow from strategic areas. And moved items from house to van that were too heavy for me. And made the back sheds more accessible. I have cooked - and de-cluttered frig and freezer!
Today was above freezing (+3C) and much ice was eradicated!!
He has yet to install shelf in utility room and remove, and replace, moldy, icky looking caulk around bath tub. My big requests.
We attended two wonderful Community Christmas dinners and met a new interesting human, explored further north, visited Madonna House on the beautiful Madawaska River and intend to go back tomorrow for a tour - to view the Russian style chapel in the woods - and a visit to a ---Arghhh! --- used book store of considerable interest. Have managed not to acquire more stuff but ... Oh, an antique and very interesting electric waffle iron; we have not ascertained if it works. It looks older than the one we had when I was a child but not as old as the one I have that is designed to sit on a gas or wood stove.
R arrived with a copy of the very interesting, and appropriate, book The Organized Mind by David J. Levitin.
At the moment he is snoring while waiting to go to the 7-11 Cafe, hosted by my dear musician friend of 40 years. Wakey, wakey!
