Subject: RE: April 2013 Showers wash away clutter!!!!!!!!
Yesterday in Quebec was cold/windy/rain/sleet. A great day for R to fix the holes in the soffits at his parents' (deceased) home due to neighbour's complaint about raccoons. This after I shared at least one article last fall on the importance of tightening up buildings before winter. I got to help a couple times. COLD!

Before going, we checked out the progress at the mill, and "did" the library, thrift shop and fabric store, each a social event as well. Planning awnings for east and south facing windows. Have a agreed on fabric! Not doing very well on the de-cluttering - another bag of books and some work clothes for R and a cosy jacket which came in handy already. We can share it.   

Cabin today, alone! Beautiful day but still cool. After I indulged in a couple blueberry muffins I remembered I had planned to fast today since R has gone to do things elsewhere. Next time.

Managed to put away the prodigious amount of laundry, pack some books and a quantity of throw rugs. Cleaned the hearth and had a nice fire in the wood stove. Thought I would pot today but the heater has quit - sometime between last night and this morning. Bummer!!!

Hung up a "new" flannel sheet to air and a nifty piece of irresistible fabric from the thrift shop (outdoors because the detergent was smelly). Washed a bucket. Filled two large planters with soil and put them into a container to soak; hope to replant parsley and coriander from small pots - successfully, maybe. Wrote two lengthy emails and rec'd a call from a distant friend. Took labels off some good storage jars - after I found the "goop off" in the studio. The action of doing that caused the shoulder to hurt so much I gave up anything for an hour or so. Now contemplating what useful things to do next.

I am at the NEED BOXES phase of packing in prep for June move. Such a nuisance. I am looking forward to getting it done and organizing yet another abode. As windows go in, I assess our drapery supply. Too public an area to leave wide open.

R's b-day on Thurs. Thinking of what to do?
