Sometimes the sun shines.

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
- Rumi 

In my quest for funds to finance my moving costs, I do think of the most innovative things, if I may say so myself. I lie cozily in bed under the warm duvet before I go to sleep, and come up with the best hare brained schemes that I have to get up for and write down on a piece of paper immediately so I will be able to take care of them the next time I sit behind the computer. I had a really good one last night that I hope is going to work out the way I think it will, because it is going to solve my problem instantly. I have another one on the back burner that I am starting work on, but it has to wait until tomorrow when people are back at their jobs. 

This does go to prove the theory that, if you are in trouble, there are a hundred ways to try and think yourself out of it if the need is dire enough. And it is not so much other people who come up with the ideas, although they may get the ball rolling. It is you yourself that thinks of the brightest possibilities. Of course, you are the one who understands your problem best and probably also knows best what sort of resources you have. Once you start looking around in your own life, you come up with all sorts of ideas that may be solutions. I sure as heck hope I am on the right track now. I am keeping everything crossed that can be crossed including my eyes. 

In the meantime, I found out that the supermarket is open tomorrow and I am glad about that because it is the Exfactor's birthday and I want to have him over for coffee and buy some pastries first at their bakery. I will have to go shopping early in the morning after I have walked Tyke. Speaking of walking Tyke, that is what I have to do in a little while and it will be a pleasure because, although it is cold, the sun is shining for a change and it will be wonderful to be out in it. I can dress for the cold, so that is no problem. I have been wearing my thickest coat with the big pockets that hold everything and do not make me look at all like a lady, but I do not care. It is comfort that counts right now.

Sounds like you have a plan. Hope it works for you. Are you waiting to be moved or to be moved up the waiting list?

I have had a slow morning. Washed windows, dusted, sorted a cabinet, cut old shirts into rags for cleaning and have sewn a back cover for a chair. It is now ten AM. I hope I continue to have a productive day.

And wishing yours great fun. Happy Birthday to the ex-factor.

I read an interesting article today in the NY Times. It was about work and rest and how sometimes our best ideas come about when we're relaxing. I hope your good idea pans out into a real solution for you.

Comfort is indeed the main thing.

Sometimes my best ideas come when I wake up early morning. Often go to bed with a problem & know what to do in the morning. Its as if my brain works it out through dreams. Its not infallible though.

We have had drizzle & cold all day!
