As I fire, finally! - the bisque for Erica's plates - probably the first ever only partly filled kiln load I have done in 40 years! Because I ran out of energy to make more. In addition to hoping for the energy to glaze them tomorrow, I look at the count down to leaving on Saturday...???? The strawberries are coming along but not yet setting fruit, never mind ripe! The mock orange has buds but not opening ...

My lack of energy this last week, - slept 12 hours last night, without any trips! I de-cluttered my mind (let go of) of the many -pottery- things I had hoped to accomplish. Down to just getting Erica's plates done! But I would love to be able to pick the strawberries this year - covered with netting! And see the mock orange which has grown substantially to over 6 feet tall from the tiny volunteer I brought here 5 or 6 years ago.

The house is still fairly orderly, a bit more so than when I arrived. Tons of weeds have been pulled and I managed a few more today. Three small batches of rhubarb are in freezer and I may manage one more. The shops are open, with restrictions; I managed to find two books at the busy thrift shop. Keep in mind the library in Chateauguay is available! The one here, might be, or soon. You get it! Books are major priority! But there are others...

I could stay 'til Weds... To clutter my mind with... maybes. And: Do other people lose this much energy after second shot? And: maybe I need to go and come back after R recovers from his.

House is as uncluttered as it will be but brain is full of clutter. So I will bring in some firewood - for exercise, then read. And eat...
