Sunday morning 7am and sick as a dog since Friday.  I don't think I was sick once last year.....of course I was living an isolated life as a house manager in an empty 10,000 sq ft home in NY then.... this is the second time I've been sick in less than two months, its just one of the things I don't like about cleaning peoples homes to supplement my income, exposure to all those germs.  Boo-hoo right?.......things could be worse.

Anyway today I'll shower and try to look healthy because I'm looking at an apartment this morning, I decided to move from my idyllic little town of Narberth.  I asked to be released from my lease so that I could find a more affordable place to live.  Today I'm looking at a studio apartment HERE
 its not my best option for saving money at $775 but it does include utilities (I currently pay $895 plus utilities) but I love the look of this building and apparently several artists live here so I'm going to take a look.
Tomorrow I'm looking at a small one bedroom HERE not far from that location.
 It could prove to be a better option, it'd be nice to not live in a one room apartment and even though it does not include utilities at $665 I think I'd save a bit more...utilities here are not very high, at least half what I experienced in So Florida.  So this one I'm more anxious to see.
Its all going to be a bit tricky lining up a new home, although the landlord agreed to release me from my lease I have to wait until he finds a new tenant before I can leave with my deposit, which I need to secure a new place. Its been five days since I asked to be released and I don't think he has the same sense of urgency that I do because he hasn't started advertising it yet.....he said he could anytime.  Sometimes I do believe people with money forget (if they ever knew) what its like to have $28 in the bank.

So no painting this weekend I have no focus, hopefully during the week after my 'real' work is done.  Here are the last few I've done and I'm still happy to say that they continue to sell.......ok, still only on the average for about $10 some higher some lower but I think they are slowly rising and I'll keep at it. 
My goal?.......to be able to make what this woman does for her ACEO paintings.  Can you believe it, here's one of hers that sold for $383.00
Here are a few of my latest......

If I don't post sooner, have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone!
