I have 3 rain barrels at Beaver, each with its own configuration of down spouts. Must remember to let them drain this weekend!

That Cookie is a force to be reckoned with! May she soon get with the program!

Turning off the exhaust fan was an error. On Tuesday aft, I realized I was smelling chlorine and went outdoors a couple times, thinking that would help. Poor R came home early- about 7 - and said something to me which should have been innocuous. I went ballistic and went to bed- with window open and door shut. I could not even read, just pulled the covers up and mewed pitifully. An hour or so later, I ventured out and asked that he put the fan back on. I knew I was hypersensitive to chlorine but - WOW!

His Monday had gone well with the presentation. He is hoping for continued progress and, even, someday, a successful culmination. A lower stress level is a wonderful thing. Perhaps one of the best de-clutters available!

Meanwhile, I putter along, remembering to tend to plants that need to come indoors. Three lovely red blooms on the tender hibiscus in our BR window this morning! The Beast, in the hall, continues to bloom amazingly.

Had two students yesterday with virtually NO knowledge of English! Winnie the Pooh helped me through! "Cup" "teapot" "table" BASIC! Searching on line today elicited nothing helpful. Tomorrow, the library to check out I Spy books and whatever else might be available at that level.
