Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019

It worked!!! or maybe the time was right for R. Saturday: the bed was completed, and other things happened in the house; a not so great discussion about where a couple OK pieces of furniture can go; unsettled. Sunday; lots of small things including a bruhaw(?)that started: ME - you aren't bringing that piece of garbage in this house are you? Responding to me stated need for furniture in which I can put stuff away - two of the ugliest pieces of junk and a nice chest of drawers needing substantial repairs. Totally insulted that I rejected these priceless antiques, R took the two bits of junk into the garage and the needy piece into what has - UH, OH! - become a store room by default. This will take my usual "diplomacy": "Get this stuff out of here!"

Then we went to the Farmers' Market and socialized, then, finally to the Mill for the frig!!!! I did take time to visit with Geri, getting to the Mill at same time as R who had taken time to... Giving him full credit: he moved the frig out and onto the truck, drove very slowly with me behind with flashers (about 30 miles on the hghwy) and then moved it into the house from the truck!!!! THEN, he helped me clean it, inside and out and put it into its slot. I refilled it with the food I had taken out- not thawed! I also had brought some other items of use from the mill, which I sorted and placed in new homes.

Then we had a simple supper. AND - much later - went to bed in our lovely comfortable bed in our wonderful new house!!!!! Dark drapes kept street lights out and it was a quiet neighbourhood. YAY! R heard the neighbour's rooster this am. We think the neighbours two down have the chickens. Such a wonderful treat to not wake up sliding off the lousy, bed in the city.

With fairness to R, he did comment this am: "We are cluttering our beautiful house."

Happy this am to make BF and talk about which chair in the den would be whose; resolved amicably. Then R went off to the city to work. I spent the rest of am recovering from unhappy gut, then went foraging in Chateauguay rather than drive to the city for needful stuff. Checked in wih Koodo about problem: resolved!

And off to St. I to talk with friends at the bistro - trying to see if there is a way I could help; I have been concerned of L. After she went elsewhere, I checked with her helper (whose name I should know after 8 years...). L is getting tired. She is basically running a sort of social service, encouraging the community without adequate help. Better PR??? They do a beautiful job of PR but perhaps not reaching enough, or the right folks. I continue to seek possible helpful ideas.

Now that the ice and snow is gone, the weather has turned cold and DAMP. I can only think about what I can do in the yard - in better weather. Maybe Weds.

Now to make a yummy supper that might not get et until 9 or 10 pm.
