Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019

Warning to Charmion: a friend in VA hired a landscape company to do some work, They were not home on the day and returned to find 25 year old hollies with all the lower branches lopped off- the ones that hid the neighbours unappealing yard, heritage plants pulled out.... Sick at the devastation of a once beautiful yard/garden.

Heat: 35C is way beyond what I can deal with. Today is 26 and I am totally ... I do five minute indoor tasks. R went to install a window A/C this am but no easy way. He will bring home a portable later today. 117 year old houses were not constructed for... We slept with fan on last night and it was tolerable but never cooled off and today is going up - until a storm this aft - HOPE! Actually, it has already rained once this am - just more humid.

Yesterday he brought the "Dickens" desk for his office and a nice pine cabinet (counter-height) for TV/sewing room), a good "match for the one already in there. We found in the trash, a block from the Montreal house a few years ago. Very nice! Today, at the thrift shop, divested us of 3 left behind pieces and picked up a nice set of drapes for the office, and a terrific, needed, small cooking pot ($3).

Goal for today: eat lightly and breathe.
