Warmish and not raining, I put all the throw rugs out on the deck vacuumed, shook the rugs and put them back in place. Also swept the front door step. It will look nice for a few days. Weeded around the sorrel and ate one fresh, and tasty, leaf! Cut back the oregano and saved some of the seeds.
It was too warm to work in the studio (solar gain) but I did a few small things to be ready for next time.
Drove to town (6 min) to meet friends for whom I save boxes; this bunch had been in and out of my car a few times since October so I was happy to finally have them gone. I had not touched the boxes in two weeks so I let them remove the lot to their vehicle, and a pile of egg cartons for the DIL who has chickens. It was nice to see these folks for a few minutes. And nice to have that out of my car. Next, some things for the thrift shop - they are all closed so I will put that stuff into the outside cabinet, in a construction grade plastic bag.
Cooked a pot of split peas; mixing them with the celery stew and some cheese.
A big chunk of each day is spent going through 100, more or less, emails and signing petitions. Sometimes I manage to "unsubscribe" from a few but I am not sure it lasts! And, of course on FB and info seeking.
The lovely day went grey and heavy so mostly just read. Even forgot to bring in wood but there is enough. I think it was up to 50 today so I pretty well let the fire go out and restarted it about 6pm.
