Oh, it was great, CA, gentle rain which cooled it down instead of battling mid 30C temps - a Jabberwocky companion, parked as far from doors as possible and an amazing rest day. Nothing beats good food, good conversation, good views and fresh air - great wines added to it for us - and we learned a lot more about our beautiful Region.

- Neighbourhood walk - to make up for gentle day yesterday
- Adjust pool chemicals and clean out leaf-traps
- Walk to supermarket to top up perishables
- Clean student/guest bathrooms and laundry

Sheila - Hope you had some pleasant walking! Hee hee!

√ 1) Wash clothes.
√ 2) Email voice teacher (emailed her yesterday and voice lessons may be possible via Skype).
√ 3) Email potential financial advisor and ask about fees. [Emailed. Didn't ask about fees, yet.]
4) And piles to go before I sleep . . .

- Walk from car to another Cellar/Wine Estate for Cheese and Wine tasting

CA - on the rare occasions that it snows here, it is limited to the top of Table Mountain 1085metres. Then it becomes front page news, the TV cameras go up and if the cable car is operating, people go up for the novelty. Otherwise, we get snow about 50 miles away, up the slopes of the mountains - again, this causes chaos on the roads with all the sightseers!

In case this sounds a little smug - I *do* sympathise - we used to shovel snow in the UK where the powers that be seem to pretend that it doesn't snow there and there wasn't much in the way of snow clearing equipment (may have changed after 40 years absence????)

Friday 8 February

- Aqua and BodyWorx
- Supermarket - top up fruit, veg and yogurt
- Collect Spring water
- Sort out one wardrobe (or, at least, one side)

Didn't get much done yesterday because of another hour of shoveling snow. Bet you don't have that in Albuquerque, or Cape Town this time of year, for that matter.

√ 1) First rolfing session. emoticon
√ 2) Email contact about private pension, or at least get started on email. [Didn't email. Called after midnight.]
- 3) Curves.
- 4) Go to park this evening to see if there are any special lighting effects because of Snow Festival.

Thanks CA - toe bruised, don't think it's broken after all - treated it with compassion and respect for 40 hours though. Car - back, didn't break the bank after all. Yes, I suppose it was expensive but I'd had a partial quote and I knew it was a bigger job than just the starter motor service. Also they fetched and returned the vehicle so that time had to be covered. Actually, I'm delighted. Let's hope the workmanship is as good as the feel-good-factor!

Wednesday 6 February

- Aqua
- BodyWorks
- Drug Store for pensioners discount on supplements etc
- Arrange travel insurance for end of month trip

CA - I've found that the easiest way to deal with it is to cook for my preferences, and serve problematic food in separate dishes - then they can make informed decisions

Tuesday 5 February

- No Aqua for me today - stubbed my baby toe - it's black and painful ?broken
- House stuff - I think I passed the Inspection!
- Pay for car repairs - they're bringing it back to me today - apparently she broke down for them too :)
- Quiet evening - no cooking - both students out tonight

Sheila - It sounds almost as though you have to be a dietician.

√ 1) Put recycled paper into boxes for my "recycle man."
√ 2) Meet with tax lady downtown - and don't forget forms!
√ 3) Perhaps look at a bit of the Snow Festival, if I can tolerate the crowds.
- 4) Rehearsal. [Too tired after shoveling snow and all.]

Monday 4 February

- Birthday greetings to Japanese student who rented my mini-apartment several years ago and stays in touch
- Pilates and BodyWorx
- Continue getting house ready for school's accommodation officer's inspection
- Supermarket - top up and find some heavy duty insect busting product

(my new student says the room has insects! Nooo how can that be and why have I not seen any evidence when doing an ultra-deep clean? Previous two students haven't said a word and we've had full-on communication - Another bunch of allergies - chocolate, red meat, cheese - probably pollen too and the room is closest to the hedges etc. By the way, other student is lactose intolerant. Add all that to my own, and catering is a challenge to say the least!)

I love the idea of bartering services, CA!

Friday 1 February

- Aqua - Bodyworx
- Return a top that doesn't look as good as I'd hoped - Sale purchase
- Arrange appointment for car to go to hospital :( Immobiliser is perfect, starter motor needs a service and new brushes, car cut out and stopped dead in the middle of busy Main Road - no-one rushed to help, bus-driver leaned on his horn - eventually got it started and rushed home blipping accelerator to make sure I could make it - grrrr (we don't have much in the way of Public Transport here, at least that any of us would use!)
- See my neighbour/friend post 2nd-Chemo?

Shorten your List.

Every day make a "to-do list." A Microsoft CEO shared with his employees his secret to success. He said every day he'd make a to-do list topped with 4 things that he REALLY wanted to get done. Then he'd throw away the rest of the list. If Microsoft's CEO can accomplish only 4 things in a day, what makes you any different? Start prioritizing yourself and you'll get the most important things done. The rest can wait til another day to be in the top 4.

On this forum, feel free to post your "top 4" and how you are progressing. Let's get the most out of our days and start prioritizing the things we need to get done most!
