Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019
Weird dream last night, and a lot of this decluttering and yard work were part of it; dreamed I moved to a small apartment yet somehow had everything with me, including the dogs; the apartment patio was fenced with three spread out layers of fence and a hole at the corner where a critter was living. As I woke I was preparing to soak a paper towel in ammonia to toss into the hole and I realized I left behind the patio chairs at the house. Funny.

In the real world I have finished weeding and turning soil in the rock-rimmed raised bed and will begin on the bed for the potatoes next. This is where the old fence slats will come in; I can put the 2-3 picket section against the downhill side and have a deep, well-worked bed for potatoes to grow in.

This week I started a new book so I'm prepared to participate in a book club in a couple of weeks. I'm not sure that this is the group I'll stick with, it's about 25 miles from here and there may be something here in town that works as well, but it's a start, and people at that meeting will probably know about other book clubs to recommend. This one reads fiction, and I was told that there is a related group that reads all nonfiction. Decisions, decisions! They're both affiliated with AAUW (American Association of University Women). Their membership fees each year are hefty, but they are a group involved in providing scholarships to young women in the North Texas region.
