Contracting As A Sideline

Today, due to a referral from family, Ken and I spent the day on a farm making ramps to enter a barn, and a slightly raised tack / feed room. It was industrious work, and we getting better all the time at working as a team.

The outcome was quite acceptable and it gave the pocket a little better lining. :-)
Upon arriving home, I took Midnight for a quick stroll, and provided him the opportunity to check his P-mail, and as I was returning him into the cool of the 5th wheel, our neighbour across the "street" asked if I knew much about spreadsheets, preferably Excel.

I told him I had a bit of experience, and asked what he was attempting to do. Working with the theory that, "A picture is worth a thousand words", I went to take a look at the problem, tweaked and fiddled a bit, and now have a client for document formatting.

I am very pleased with the blessings of this day, Ken re-established his semi-retired hire-ability, and I have dipped into a pool in which I too enjoy working. It is actually a direction I would enjoy expanding, but until word gets around, being mobile makes it a bit challenging to establish a clientele for our available skills. Nonetheless, between Ken and I, there is a broad scope of possibilities we could be hired to do.

With any luck, today is just a mark of things to come......

So with satisfaction and contentment, I bid you



  1. There is so much work out there for those willing to labour! Never let a 'no' get you down and keep looking! Good luck!

  2. Thank you :-)
    I have learned through experience to expect blessings. They may not land in your timing, but they do come in perfect timing.
    One must keep in mind that there is more than one destiny affected by any one occurrence. To co-ordinate the needs of many takes Divine timing.
    (Gee, that's nearly poetic) LOL
