What a rare and precious day- to be finished all my have-to-dos by the still sunlit hour of five pm! I’m just after commenting on how on my very best productive days at full output without hitches, the best I can ever do is to get everything on the list done. There’s rarely anything left over for spontaneity. And today, there is! A whole evening for writing in front of the fire and sewing with new fabric.
The best part is feeling prepared and caught up. I’m ready to go to Cuba now.
I woke up early, with barely enough light to read by, squinted at my book for a little while in bed, got up and built a fire, cut some firewood, built the structure for my lovely green countertop and stocked it, cut some more firewood, cleaned up a bunch of the old barn, dyed my hair, cleaned and organized the new barn, made some calls and sifted through a couple boxes of row and the year’s paperwork. I even ate properly.
Sifting through the stacks of random papers that accretes in little heaps is an annual event for me. So I relate to my tax clients that sort out the box of receipts just before they visit me. The odd ones that have monthly balance sheets seem a bit alien to me. Who has time to stop everything once a month to do a balance sheet? That’s just impractical.
