YAY for company! R has made the hall and spare room look good! De-cluttered his reading area as well! And said he would bring home wood to close off the stairwell. Each part of addition heats individually (3 rooms and hall) so I turned up the hall some; will turn it up more when stairway is covered and I can take the foam mattress out of the doorway. That was about keeping heat in house but also keeping any spores or whatever from the basement out of Den where I sit and read/computer. Will turn up heat in guest room on Weds - only the cousin is coming due to bad weather, and not til Weds.
So, I started putting out pottery on extended DR table. Three of us can eat in the K. Today, the warmest for a while, I brought all the pottery in from back deck and placed it on church pew in hall. Am gradually moving it out of boxes onto table, which is mostly full already. Will wait 'til cuz leaves to put up card tables for the rest.
I collected most of garden tools to deck and cleared it up as much as possible. Getting ready for impending snow. Glad to have snow tires on; when R went to get flat fixed no one could do it as all the tire places were up to changing folks to winter tires. He and gang did it themselves and it seems to be holding.
Re-potted small ficus which lives in Bathroom. And, finally, planted the new lavender in the new garden, where it can drape over a large rock R brought home. He really likes the new garden and is looking for more rocks to go around it. I never saw a draping lavender before but it is lovely. Frost has done in most everything, but still some colour showing in frosted flowering plants. No obvious signs of squirrel depredation! Inside, Beast has one new flower, hibiscus two, and a number of ratty geraniums are blooming in spite of me. I shall groom them better through the winter,and feed them. The one red mini rose bloom continues to be lovely!
Major shopping yesterday; I overdid it. Have 6 cauliflower - will cook and freeze - mashed for pasta substitute, on a cookie sheet cut into squares of appropriate size, so I can break it up after frozen, and bag it until needed.
My whole being is delighted to be back on real time; it just feels so right. I feel better in every way.
Thinking of Pete and Michelle.
