I sold my big metal desk through Craigslist today. Although I loved that desk, I couldn’t see hauling it down stairs, transporting it, and hauling it back up stairs. I’ll find something else to put my PC on.
Someone’s going to look at another bed we have for sale tomorrow. If that goes, then all of the big items that we couldn’t bring with us will be gone. Good progress.
I went past an apple orchard today, and remembered what a horrible year it was last year for apples. It got so warm in March that the trees started budding, and then we had a frost in April which damaged their early progress. I eat apples all winter, and had to stop early this year because the orchards ran out of them. Looks like we’ll have a good crop this year – I hope.
I’m reading “My Beloved World” by Sonia Sotomayor. I only have enough energy each night to read 3-5 pages. It’s interesting so far. I’m only on page 47. Several people have told me I look like her. I don’t see it.
