Good morning. Gosh, the morning is more than half over and I'm just getting started on this new day. I guess my nerves were really frazzled lately because of the tax appointment because I slept good last night. So good, that I did not want to crawl out from under the covers this morning.
Actually, I might have got up an hour earlier, but I have a "slow" clock on the wall that does not reflect daylight savings time. So when I look at it, I still have another hour to sleep or do whatever it is that I'm doing. This clock is too far up the wall for me to reach it, so unless someone tall comes to visit and offers to set the correct time, I'll just wait till November for it to tell the right time.
I've worked around the "wrong" time in my car for years because I never knew how to reset the time. Twice a year, my daughter Deanne shows me how to do this, but somehow I just never can remember how to do it on my own. Well Dee Dee, you can be proud of your old mom. Yesterday I touched the right button for a second too long, and VOILA!. The little clock menu popped up so that I could reset the time. Woo Hoo!!
As for my appointment with the accountant, I had most of what I needed. I came away with a very short list of items still needed and already have them in a bag to take back to the accountant. I just have to call him later today to find out when he can see me again. As for the taxes themselves, I am amazed at how much the government takes out of the little bit we have.
On a brighter note, I have a few photos of a really pretty plant that grows at the resort in Florida. I don't know the name of this plant, so if anyone does please let me know. It's such a beautiful plant that I just had to stop and take some photos to share.
Imagine having all these beautiful plants blooming in the winter time! Oops, I sound like I come from up North. Oh well, I do, and we don't have these beauties to look all winter long. As a matter of fact, if this winter doesn't go away some time soon, we won't even be having a Spring this year.
Yesterday we had some rain and lots of wind. The wind kept howling all through the night and it probably won't be stopping much before tonight. With this wind comes more cold temperatures. On Friday, the first day of Spring, we are expecting some sort of winter storm. It's probably a bit too early to find out exactly what and how much of it we'll be getting.
Yesterday afternoon, Pogo and I went for a little ride and met up with Deanne and Jazzy. Pogo was thrilled! He gets all excited every time he sees Auntie Dee, and can't wait to hop up in her arms and cuddle with her. After a few minutes of snuggle time, Pogo was back in his car seat and we headed back home where I cooked up a nice steak for my handsome little guy.
Well, that's about all my news for this morning. Now I think I'll make a fresh cup of coffee and get caught up on my blog reading. So till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
