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

The weather changed and so did my energy level - a good dose of negative ions from the spring winds. I went to town and fetched back a few more boxes of stuff. R showed up just as I was pondering the possibility of carrying the microwave out to the car! Everything else is in the house now, and put away! We still do not have a real place to put it but shall need to improvise - so he can have warm food!

Nice chat with cross the street neighbour as she was putting out the trash bin; her English is well up to a good converse! And she is a reader! Having a rough time dealing with her husband's Alzheimer's; she does not feel like reading. I suggested it as a good escape. As the weather improves - surely it will! - we can connect more, maybe even have a cup of tea. She has help 3 times a week so she can do errands and such.

I need to find out why, all of a sudden, since moving here, my hands are DRY! And there are water spots on "clean" pots; everything needs to be wiped dry to prevent spotting. City water... Sophia does not seem to have a problem: maybe she has always wiped things dry. And had dry skin??? I am finding it, esp the skin, a nuisance. Using olive oil on hands and face.
