9:00am wake up and cuddle with D. (the dog). It is so quiet and relaxing. Why don’t I just stay in bed, but D. needs to go out.
9:25am. Getting ready to walk D., start the water for tea, will she need her sweater? No so put her harness on. It is quiet and D. is doing her D. things. Sniffing the air, checking for squirrels, and generally being a dog. I like to watch her and see what she does. Still some snow on the ground.
9:45am Get breakfast-toast, yogart, and tea. D. like the end of the toast.
10:00am Eating breakfast and reading the newspaper. Nothing much in the paper. I see Sharon Randall is back. Lover her writings. Funnies, and crosswork puzzles. (My mental stimulas.) Feed D. the end of the toast. Well Rachel Ray is cooking again.

3:55pm back to cleaning the bedroom. Findly got off the phone with the mother. Still trying to work on filing my knitting patterns. Did not realize I had so many. Found a couple of old knitting books, one was printed in 1915 and one in 1916. The rest is 1939 and 1940. I wish i could find dates on the others. Put the old books in plastic sheets and a notebook to save them.
3:55pm Resting. Wears me out sitting on the bedroom floor, my legs can not take it sometimes.
