Hello February!

February 1, 2016

Good morning.  I've been very busy this morning.  First I cleaned out a few things from the refrigerator.  Today is trash pickup day.  Then I made some breakfast, and started working on some new quick pages. 

In case you haven't noticed, it is already February!!  This is going to be a very busy month for Pogo and me.  We have appointments for Pogo - physical and grooming, and with the tax accountant for me.  I have to arrange for our rental car in Florida and buy a new suitcase.  Then of course, there's the packing and lots of other little things that will have to be done.  Yup, a very busy month. Here's the February page from my calendar.

Today is supposed to be a wicked gorgeous day in the 50's.  Woo Hoo!!  This super weather gives me the energy that I need to finish working on the less fun projects.  (like taxes)  I mostly have to match up tons of receipts to credit card statements, then put the figures in the correct columns for the tax work sheets. 

I often wonder why we have to pay so much money to an accountant to do our taxes.  We do all the leg and foot work, provide all the figures and totals, and pop lots of headache pills.  It seems that the accountant looks it over to make sure we did everything right, then he uploads the information to his computer and files it.  Then he sends us a huge bill.  I wonder if it would be alright to deduct appropriate amounts of money from his bill for all my hours of work???  Seems only fair to me!!

I must remember to call Wayne today and make an appointment for him to come by and check my laptop.  He also needs to check out my small laptop to make sure it is ready to travel.  A couple blog friends have given me advice on how to fix my task bar, so I'll give that a try after I've finished this post. 

Pogo is walking back and forth between me and the refrigerator.  I think he's trying to tell me that he wants food.  I guess it's time for me to get a move on.  Before I leave, let me post this cute puzzle image that I borrowed from the web.  There are six words hidden in the picture.  See if you can find them all.  I'll post them all here tomorrow.   Have fun.

That's all my news for today.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

I think that billable hours should be counted in!!! That's my vote but according to the accountants my opinion matters little lol.

I love the little word challenge. I did it several times when it comes across my newsfeed. They really do keep your eyes and mind in working order I think.

Cisco is laying on my bed and refused to get up when I wanted back in so here I am instead. Ahhh a dog's life... I would rather stay up than to disturb him ha.

Have a great day with those awesome temps. Sunshine is so good for us! Love Beth and Cisco...

Thanks so much Edna for your lovely daily pictures and puzzle today - I eventually found all 6 words :)

Love your templates/quick pages and will use them soon...

You'll see your lovely photos of Pogo used in your quick pages later too :)

Take care, Hugs and Blessings from Jemima @

It really will be a busy month for you. In a way also good, staying busy. and the reward will be fantastic, your trip to Florida!!
Hmmm, seems my accountant is doing a little bit more for his money than yours? I just have to gather all the stuff needed, make copies and send them and he fills in the tax forms(all going digital now, I don;t understand a syllab of it LOL).
Buying a new suitcase is more fun. It will get you in vacation mood.
Have a wonderful day.
