In the city waiting for R so we can go back to the cabin tonight.

This morning at the cabin I got up at the 8 hours sleep time (bed after midnight) and made a quick breakfast so we could get to the city. While waiting for R to get off the phone, I trimmed the rosemary - put the trimmings to dry, cleaned a plant of aphids (I hope), took off some shoots and put them in a couple pots to root (I hope), washed the dishes, put out food for the critters...

Oops, we went the other direction and ended up at the mill. I spent a couple hours washing one door and its sidelights and some windows. All the windows and doors are filthy - about an eighth of an inch of crud from sitting outside in the city! They needed to be hosed down before installation. I used newspaper and a spray bottle of water/vinegar. LOTS!

Finally got to the city house: have done both provincial and fed income tax (2 hours), put in 3 loads of laundry. Two are dry. Had a light supper reading - current is a delightfully written book about working for the Hudson Bay company in the 8o's - at the end of its life as fur trading posts in the NORTH.

Also watered the plants and picked up boxes from the trash across the street and some, needed, bucket lids and one small (good size) bucket. Listened to a message asking to order a couple mugs - over and over and still could not decipher the phone numbers correctly. But she said she was a friend of,,, So I phoned ... and got her number, and an order for a couple tumblers. These folks... are my most faithful customers. I need to ask the daughter about holding an open house for me.

Well, I actually feel as though I have had a productive day - did not produce any pots but - you know. Got stuff done! Back to they dryer.
