Pics of the storm were horrendous on CBC last night!

Took a load of mind this am by sending off two cards with notes, months overdue. Why am I so loathe to write to folks - so I have lost people who moved without bothering to tell me because they never heard from me. Because, I write too much and it makes me loathe to do another! I hate the manual exercise of writing - since grade school! So off went these two notes to "kids" I have not seen in over ten years. The mom, who quit phoning me years ago, and I quit phoning her because I only ever got the father, a nice man but...

But she sent me an invitation to the older daughter's grad - on Whidbey, in 2019! It was months late when I received it due to old address about which I had forgotten. And more months for me to "get around to it". But now they are done - one to each "child" as I could not leave the younger one out. And a change of address not and donation to The Catholic Worker; I only read bits but it has been part of my life all my life, so I could not just send a donation and "please stop...". Now to find a safe post office.

Now, beautiful day. I will try the yard for mosquitoes; they were vicious yesterday but today is dryer... I am mowing bit by bit. Was trying to finish before going back to Beaver but maybe not. Tomorrow we can go fetch "patio furniture someone is giving R. There is enough mowed area for it in the side yard! Maybe Monday to B.   

R has been leaving earlier and coming home earlier. Really does not like driving in dark; has not made eye appointment...

Broke diet badly yesterday and again this am. Start again from where I am... I ate enough choc - from a fancy gift box - to feel sick already. May cure me? Doubt it. MUST write in book right after BF!! But I was focused on that other writing task.

OK, plug in Lawn mower and see how much I can get done!
