I got up when the sun was up a bit, but it was 6 o’clock; Oh, I looked it up, It rose at 5:18 this morning.
Sunrise being what it is in Canada, gets earlier and earlier until two days from now when it’s the spring equinox. It’s the solstice. Is it the equinox or does it have a different name.
I should be taking advantage of these very long days.
I should be getting up with the sun and going to bed with the sun. I should be watching it rise and set each day. It’s not like I’m super busy at those times.
I’ve kind of given up on watching TV in the evenings. I really don’t like to be inside. I’d rather be outside, anywhere all over the property and in my various little cozy locations, like this one where I found shade and a comfy couch to rest my back, The Flowers Tipi, at the bottom corner of the Perennial Slope Garden. I can see that I need to spend some time sorting this wood out by length.
I cleaned the kitchen all day. It took a lot of work. I sorted out my baking cupboard and the ones above it, I guess it’s the corner cupboard. I found things that I don’t want, and I found things that I do want. I moved some of my jars to the lower cupboard.
I also filled glass canning jars with water and placed one on each of the tables on the deck so I can have a drink whenever I’m m sitting there.
I had bought a lot of dal, red lentils of sorts, or Dahl. So now it’s all in the jars of various sizes. Only a few nearly daily legumes are on the counter now.
Alida and I also kept the washer going all morning. I’ve been putting it out and taking it in. I only have three loads left, I think. I’ve been putting off doing our shirts and blouses because I had such a messy kitchen I didn’t want to lay them anywhere to work on them.
Now that the kitchen is clean, I have so much space! When everything is in the wrong place, the magic counter that I never clear off, it gets to be a pretty big thing. Now with that table on its side creating a wall barracading off the living room and sunroom, I can just reach over it and set things into my clean living room, and then when I’m in there take them on into the sunroom or the bedroom where they go. Mostly it’s stuff for the sunroom that gets put over the table onto the chest or on the floor.
