I sure have not lost any weight. Nor have I made any pots. I have collected a good size pile of stuff to give to Pat; it is in the car. I have not finished grieving the plight of my 90 year old friend; the mutual friend whom I asked to be an intermediary left a message to which I have not even been able to respond. Dan has not yet appeared to put the new shelves in but I have made space so I could pot - if I could find the energy and inclination.

My best news is that friends from Quebec have indicated they will probably appear on my doorstep on Sun or Mon. I sent them directions with photos, as in "When you see this house do an almost U-turn into Gaebel Rd - where you see my car" (in the pic) It would cheer me to have this visit. The glitch is that I checked the sleeping loft and it needs to be swept or vacuumed. Either way I shall have to do it in the am, wearing a respirator and go somewhere for the day!! Tomorrow!! They will bring their own food! I remember when I used to cook really nice (not fancy) meals for 4 to 50 people, now I barely cook for R and me.

In 1977, I realized that drinking milk made me feel sick but whipping cream did not; I quit drinking milk - and cream!- but use milk or sour milk in (rare) baking. And only eat 10% yogurt.

It was a beautiful fall day today and I managed only to spread the large tarp out on the lawn and sweep some of the stuff off. If it dries more, I will sweep more and try to fold it and put it in shed - maybe. Tomorrow is a trip to the Shop, and some grocery shopping. And the library if it is open; I will have finished 3 of the 4 books I borrowed on Tuesday.

My technical advance for this year is being able to get pics from phone to computer!
