Montreal:
R had rented a box truck for business so yesterday we used it to fetch the DR set and also purchased a number of other items while at this furniture thrift shop. Then drove to Dupont and offloaded easily with the ramp from truck to front door! I suspect there is another rental in the future as it was SO much easier!

Now: DR set (round table with 3 leaves); Oak pedestal table for K, matches the wainscoting; two unique old oak chairs - K; Comfy swivel rocker for TV room; Lovely old book or curio cabinet with glass door; and two modern (IKEA) benches, that could be used for many things, destination undetermined as they do not suit the house but may be useful in case of house concert.

Today I woke with pain which we finally established as major gas pain; went off Keto and ate some "junk" this week, esp last night. Apple cider vinegar in water all day - first reduced it appreciably and then has kept it down.

R took us to home depot today as we were both mindful of the orchid needing a real pot - tired of it tipping and spilling! As it continues to survive and is growing another new leaf, it deserves a proper container. Planting medium needs to be soaked for 24 hours so pot is sitting in the new orchid pot until tomorrow. The rest of the plants are happy in their new home. The tomato and pepper plants continue to thrive and are producing new, small, crops. It intrigues me that they continue to get new growth and fruits more than a year after they were started. I always though they would just quit and die...

We also bought a large tile to top a kind of interesting wood table we found for $10. And a short trip to a library so I could spend rest of day resting.

Cooked us a nice supper. R will have his when he gets home... Parking improves as snow is SLOWLY removed! Walking is daunting as snow turns to mush, then freezes. Also freezing rain late last night.
