I'm a creative loafer, a phrase deemed by author and entrepreneur Jerry Gillies. My mind needs time to ponder. The more I sit around doing what sometimes appears to be nothing the better off I am in the long run.
I need time for an idea to fester and flourish. This is done by contemplating it whilst doing something mundane or driving along the ocean or just sitting at the beach looking out at the water.
This weekend I spent a couple of hours in front of the fireplace reading a good book. I needed it. It felt restorative. I need to remind myself to loaf more; otherwise I burn out.
I woke up this morning to close the chimney flue and there were still hot embers amongst the ashes so I left the flue open. I was surprised that the fire lasted so long.
I've spent a small fortune on little bundles of wood at Home Depot. I'm finally having a cord delivered this afternoon. It's not cheap ($275) but it was the best I could find.
I also got a space heater. Instead of firing up the furnace to heat my office I throw on this little heater. It works well.
Well, that's it for now. Have a great week!
