Good morning on this lovely sunny morning. I'm enjoying it while I can because we are expecting some snow for tomorrow. Oh goodie goodie! Well, at least I'm past the worst of the tax stuff so a little snow is not going to bother me much. I had my appointment yesterday with my tax accountant, Roger Kahan, and all I have left to do is break down one last batch of receipts and he can start to file my taxes.
When I told him that I had mentioned about my appointment with him on my blog, he said "You did mention my name, of course?" All advertising is good advertising. So folks, if you live anywhere on the South Shore (near Boston, MA.) and need a good tax accountant and financial advisor, just leave me a comment with your email and I'll send you Roger's information. He's very good at what he does, and you'll be quite pleased.
As you can see, my funky mood is lifting finally. It simply had to be anxiety over those dratted taxes. If I could learn to be better organized, maybe the tax preparation wouldn't get to me so bad. I'll have to work on that this year.
As I was leaving for work this morning, the sky in back of my house was oh so pretty. I took a photo of it, and I stopped a little ways down the street to take another photo. Isn't this a pretty way to start a new day?
When I arrived at work, I saw that lots more little flowers had blossomed during the week. Of course, I took a couple of photos to share. Aren't these pretty?
There was an article in yesterdy's newspaper about the 1940 census. According to the article, "Next monday, the U.S. Census and Archives will release an on-line database with detailed, individual information on more than 15 million Americans who filed out a 1940 questionnaire that very much tried to assess the impact of the Great Depression."
The article had a lot more information in it, so if you like to look it up online, go to Patriot Ledger.com. The article is on Page 9. It also showed a couple of ads from stores that my mother took me shopping in when I was a little girl. Remember when turkeys were 21 cents a pound, and grapefruit and orange juice were 5 cents a quart?
I shall have to end this post now, because I'm at work and the Mrs will be waking soon. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
