Charmion De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life 2019 - 2020 (1250* d) RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life 2019 - 2020 29 Dec 19


If I were on my own, I could live as Mary does, but I think I would miss having at least enough furniture and crockery to entertain one other person to tea or supper. Living with Himself, however, means that I am surrounded by stuff and spend a surprising amount of time riding herd on it so the gangways are clear and none of the windows is blocked.

Today, I am having an asthma flare and, consequently, doing not much. Laundry maybe, but not necessarily. Cooking dinner, perhaps. Until then, strictly reading.

We spent Christmas in Ottawa with Elder Brother and SIL in their big old house, which is not only crowded with books, furniture and potted plants but also very dusty. We also went to Midnight Mass at Smokey Barney's, the church with the most elaborate liturgy I have ever experienced, and got thoroughly doused with incense. Plus, it was cold. So now I am paying for my adventure with wheezing, chest pain, lots of coughing, and the jitters brought on by the bronchodilator drugs.

At home, the sacrifice of my Christmas cactus with its coating of white mould has made breathing considerably easier. I'd hate to think what state I'd be in if it was still tossing spores around my living space.

We are not having a normal winter in Perth County. Every speck of snow is gone and the temperature is hovering above freezing. The forecast today calls for rain, with more rain tomorrow. At this rate, the whole damned world will be covered with mould.
