No clothesline - will be a while! I used to have gloves and pruners everywhere, including under the driver's seat of car so I could grab them and get to it wherever! My extra gloves seem to have disappeared into the mists of chaos, along with my box of Marie Corelli books - they did not appear when R moved the boxes I though had been piled on top.
Boxes of books came from mill and went into basement where the plan now is to set up the (auction) ping pong table for sorting. I hope this will include culling! Apparently the basement will be the library - a nice room that could be a studio apt - or a library. Even has a washroom with shower.
We used my car yesterday and driving home with it full of moldy books... Not Too moldy but I could smell it and had windows open. Also brought a few pieces of hanging art - my Georgia O'Keeffe print is now on Den wall! A large round stained glass piece will go ... undecided.
The recycling bin was emptied today! Now I can start re-filling it for next week. Those darn flyers...! And R took some metal from the basement to go to a scrap metal yard. ("$5.00") But h may add to it when he gets to the city.
I have lots of clearing around plants but I ache from Saturday. Yesterday we went to a craft show on the reserve and talked to people; R had to buy a very small jar of jelly. Oy vey! And to the Farm Market near the Mill: had lunch, purchased nothing else, found out a friend had a brain op so after we picked up stuff at Mill, we went to see if Jesse were up to visitors. Had a great visit and were so happy to see her recovering just fine. The best I could understand: something was leaking in her brain and would build up pressure so she could not play music and other sorts of things. They opened a flap and removed the small mass. Not a tumour or cancer. She expects to be fine. She and Joe are homeschooling their 7 year old; he is learning Mandarin from a woman a few miles away. Of course, already fluent in French and English, as are both parents. I realized this morning that I was able to understand the auditory aspects of our lively conversation. That was a special de-clutter sort of thing as my brain often understands nothing and R has to tell me what was said, afterwards.
Thusly, continues the moving into Dupont!
