I finished all the unpacking of the seven boxes of possessions I shipped from NY three weeks ago. This was the relatives. Still need to hang the pictures, but the boxes (and loathsome peanuts) are out the door. I did hang the grandfather of my great uncle, not a direct relative, but quite the Victorian swain (thinking 1840s). Upholding my great aunt's tradition of hanging pictures of attractive gentlemen, whether or not relatives. I am starting to understand these things.
Right now, I have a huge pot of mushroom barley soup simmering away to use up leftover stock from a meal a week or so ago. Needs another hour or so. I made bread yesterday, so have the "with its" covered.
As had a bit of a break in the action, followed up on a missing 1099, so have everything I need for taxes. Still need to read something titled "classification system with prognostically relevant subtype discovery". My poor brain! The scary thing is that I am able to read and understand such publications.
Just lovely here with daffodils and cherry trees coming into full bloom. The frogs are singing, but alas, too cloudy to see the Northern Lights. Rats!!!
Some wonderful news. My friend in London who nearly died of sepsis two weeks ago is home and now off on a train ride to Stratford to see As You Like It with friends. We have been friends for decades and so relieved that she pulled through. She has also been doing some gardening and short walks with her dogs. Just a miracle. And someone I did some work with about a dozen or so years ago just survived two rare cancers due to participating in a clinical trial. Another miracle.
So offering up major prayers of Thanksgiving this evening.
I am enjoying having my things with me once again. A bit of a surprise at how much I had missed my treasures, some of which go back two centuries. I have been cleaning up my place as I go along. It's like having a whole new place, and the one I always wanted.
Just took a taste of the soup. Slow food rules!!!! - Claire
