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

I would be tempted to try the local pool bu it has chlorine, one of my worst sensitivities. Swimming is such a top notch exercise.

Did some clean up to have the house look moderately nice for friend Hannah and her son and his partner. They removed a few pieces of pottery after considerable commentary. Hannah already has enough - a collection going back about 40 years - stacks of them! They enjoyed seeing the house and went to the attic. Hannah remembers me since she was 8 = 52 years! She and my son will each be 60 in the next week and each of their spouses have birthdays on the 10th! She is a keeper of my history. Her son worked for R for a while so we all had a great visit. We are somewhat like an "extended family".

The pottery is becoming a serious conundrum. I need to figure out a place to put it before 21st when other son arrives with family. We need the table for meals! I'm thinking....

Eng. class today had two students. I had forgotten Jacinthe; she was in FL for 5 weeks. It was more fun with two; J was helpful and we both worked on convincing T what she knows more than she thinks - she needs confidence - a word we worked on! Amongst many others! I had brought up on line a couple children's books being read well with closed captions. We watched together and talked about words and the stories and were able to have a semblance of discussion! I also read a couple of my children's books to them. Exhausting but good. I exhorted them to do this on their own at home and write down words so we can look a them next week.

Pro-biotics (50 Billion) have improved my gut health and general well-being - very much. Ginger tea helps also. My energy has improved greatly.

Magda is finished in the studio; pics of her pottery are beautiful! She is doing Christmas shows with that and her other arts. I am happy to have been able to help.
