Went to my first English class as a volunteer. Not sure what I was meant to do as the teacher ran the whole show. Five women - russian, Venezuelan, Chinese, Quebecoise, Morrocan, and one man - unknown. The acoustics were so bad I understood little and wonder how much it helped the students but they seemed able to converse fairly effectively. They were proficient and highly intelligent generally. Word I have never heard or seen: "lapidated". I'll look it up shortly.

Then looked for Vit E oil; All the junk in pharmacies but not pure vitamin E oil. Will order on line. With last effort - one more pharmacy, I discovered a shopping mall; I have driven by many many times and had no idea it was there. Rather tatty looking but some decent stores behind the tatty facade! I actually found one that had a few items I may go back and try on in the morning- when I am not so tired. Most of my shopping is done in thrift shops but I have not been finding anything in a while and have a hankering for something a little different. Still not set up for sewing.

Beautiful day, just above freezing. The snow in back yard is down to about 12 inches! I am eyeing the yard for where to plant the 3 cherry trees, if they survived their winter in pots under a couple feet of snow!

R received a wedding invite from godson. Guess we will be going to a June wedding in or near Mystic, Connecticut. So much for my vow not to cross the border until ... The RSVP requests knowledge of "camping on family property?", "coming in van?" and "song request?" Logan was ship's carpenter on the Picton Castle for a few years and studied art in Halifax after that. Should be an interesting bunch of folks! Need to plan our end.

Otherwise doing nothing - but computer - nothing else to do.
