Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness in a Pandemic: 2021
I spent the whole morning on the phone doing choir stuff, and then the diddly tunes group arrived. It’s now three o’clock and I can finally do my own thing.
It’s a beautiful day in Stratford, sunny, clear and warm, but there’s just the slightest chill in the breeze that says Summer is gone, gone, gonzo. When I have recombobulated, I’ll take myself out for a good walk.
I’m doing well on the diet front, with no relapses or attacks of mad craving. Preparations for the interment ceremony in Ottawa are on track. I won’t relax properly until that’s over.
My elder brother (age 68, and myopic and cross-eyed like me) called on Sunday night to ask about visual effects that indicate retinal damage — oh, boy. He spent most of yesterday in the emergency room, where they confirmed that something’s definitely awry but found no tears *at present*, so now he’s waiting for an ophthalmologist to find time to see him ASAP. It’s never anything simple … or minor.
I think I have a new home for the excess chest of drawers, which is a Good Thing on general principles but a bit urgent at present because I need that space in the library for the electronic piano that’s coming on Thursday. No, I did not buy it — yet; it belongs to a choir friend who has a real piano and a husband who wants the basement cleared of stuff they don’t use. If it does what I need it to do, I’ll eventually convince Chris to part with it permanently (for a price); I don’t think she’ll resist.
