Dupont:

Sometimes I do not push for what I need. I really wanted to go back to Beaver yesterday for a meeting about tree care, and a few days to visit and pick up a load of stuff. As often happens, I did not realize how important the meeting was for me until it was too late to go. The only reason I did not leave was that my car was full of stuff from the auction! So I complained this morning and the car is now empty. I will leave tomorrow early - waiting for the weather to warm up 10 degrees! Come back Sunday, weather permitting.

Auction stuff is sorted and most is ready to leave for thrift shop (a full car load) - next week when I am back. What a waste of time and energy! I did, however, find a beautiful oval tablecloth - white with a special sort of lace work (it has a name), safely ensconced in a heavy plastic bag and now in a drawer in the pantry.

It is possible that the frig will appear while I am gone - maybe... And the bed frame??? Maybe. Then we can live in warm house. One can only hope!

Montreal:
Came back to the city to rest for trip, also avoiding paint fumes which are sometimes sneaky. Alas, it is so cold, even in the BR, under two quilts! If I had hammer! and two nails and a ladder--- I would put the quilt across the doorway to keep the pittance of heat in the BR. But I don't. ... I opened an adjacent closet door across the opening in attempt to keep in some of the heat. ...It may be working; Does not seem as cold! (No, there is not a door on BR.)

R is involved in a very exciting project; Ephraim is leading and researching with him the history of a piece of property (belonging to R & bro) back into the 1800's and earlier, in old Montreal. They found info that led to more info... more and more interesting and exciting and, potentially, profitable. (Why I hesitate to bug R re matters of little significance like being COLD!)

It is predicted to warm by about 10 degrees the next few days. It will be nice to get back to the wood stove!
