Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness in a Pandemic: 2021

Still in recuperation: watering outside potted plants - no rain and they take several gallons each day. I don't know if they will survive if I leave - for even a few days. R is not dependable; he does not live for plants alone!

Yesterday was the installation of the amazing gates. I went to city for the purpose, about noon and was back about 4. Four hours in the open air, hot but shady and breezy - but still HOT! I took lots of pics and tried the video but no idea what I was doing so scrapped those. It really looks monumental! Just observing 4 competent people working together was a treat - with large tractor/front loader... and two large trucks and the forklift. IT is such a de-clutter in R's life he came home last night, "Now what do I do...?"

Now he is faced with the political/bureaucratic logistics of the project; he has been in avoidance and leaving them to E but still hours on the phone and meetings. I hope I live long enough to see this project come to fruition - and that is is not torpedoed by "big money" hand in glove with paid off bureaucrats.

And All I do is water plants! I hope I get enough energy back to drive to Beaver in a few days. In my arena: dishes, laundry and K mostly in order. NO grass/weeds are cut. I open and close windows and drapes according to the weather and use fans when it gets too hot for me. Thankfully, it has cooled enough each night to live without noisy A/C. Then, just now!, I realize I could cool the BR with A/C for a while before we go to bed, even while I take a 1-2 hour nap. Would cool the bed and furniture.
