Yes, breaking it down and planning... That would be very useful to me.

Read document and make notes - 1 pomo Done but need to do another pomo 

Do a paragraph outline - start with one pomo

Then: one para per pomo; go for record

Write to R

Mole's check in

Thank you for the lovely starter, findingaway. If there was a rainbow here it would have been at midnight - blazing sun yesterday 29 celsius - or 85 to you Fahrenheiters, and rain all day today, topping 12 celsius - or 50 something F. Usually this time of the year it is great rainbow country - full strong arcs.  

But it is a lovely metaphor, too. Embracing contradictions, and reminding ourselves that without shadow we cannot define light or visa vera. 

 flat chat these last couple of days, so lovely having this mizzly blanketing weather. Had to rest a lot. But a major hurdle is now out of the way and i feel lighter.

i need to get back to planning, making sure that i always identify next actions. Perhaps sheets of paper stuck to the wall in the hallway so i can add things when i think of them - and cross things off when I am done.

it is late afternoon. i need to take things slowly, eat healthily, go to bed early.

early Thursday

Thank you SO MUCH findingaway for the great starter- such an important reminder for me today to keep breaking down tasks to managable little bit--- AND to stop being a grumblebum about the rain!! as I LOVE rainbows!!!Cool Just what I needecd to read today so thanks again!
