Well, Got to Beaver to find I had not washed the dishes before I left last time and they are still there as we left this time. Then came home to unwashed dishes here. Darn! Need to do better.

Send R to an auction with no money and he finds a friend to lend him! But not much. We spent most of Sat, Sun and Mon viewing a great deal of southeastern Ontario, decluttering the gas tank and the wallet. And the energy, though R did all the driving. Now, there is a stress factor! Finally arrived here at 11:10 pm. BED! Did manage to declutter some of R's stress. HE went off to work this am in fair shape, and I to my English class, half asleep at 1:30 pm.

The Beast had only one flower left so I guess it has gone into dormancy. Or we have not done something quite right. The friend with whom we stayed Sunday night had a smaller one still full of flowers. I researched but found no specific help.

R checked the new garden for squirrel damage but perceived none! He is taking a keen interest in the indoor and outdoor gardening! The new soil in the front yard is a marvellous addition. Expensive, too. But a joy to both of us, greatly improving the appearance with lots more room for blooming flowers and 3 low growing evergreens. Still need lots of rocks to edge it - about 40 feet!

Happily, there is still soup for supper; I am not up for much else.   

Turning the heat down before we left was good for the plants and the wallet but took some shivering to warm the bed!
