It's Time To Tackle The Taxes

February 11, 2019

Good morning.  Tis gray and cold here.  Temps are 27F degrees and might reach 32F degrees this afternoon with a little bit of sunshine.  Tomorrow we're supposed to get some snow.  Yuk, yuk.

This morning I did my best to sleep in as late as possible, but I finally had to give in and get up.  My boy was hungry, so I fed him.  (and me too)  Sleep came in patches all through the night.  I'm not sure why, but at least I did get some sleep.

Today I will get started on those nasty taxes.  I keep trying to put it off, but time is flying by so I really need to buckle down and just do it.  If I work on them for a few hours, I'll treat myself to a new batch of muffins.  Besides, I need to try out my new muffin pan.  (a good excuse)

Well, my opinion of the WalMart order pickup program is pretty good.  I will have to be careful about them substituting items.  They substituted four items.  Two of them were good, and two of them were only so so.  Otherwise, I am very happy with this program.  I'll still have to shop in person for meats and fresh veggies and fruit.  I'm very picky about these items. 

I have a photo of my new dolly.  The dress is only pinned on and I still have to make the accessories, but at least you can see how the dress will look on her. 

I haven't decided on what to do with her hair.  Put it up?  Tie it sideways?  I'm not sure.  However, it is not a top priority right now.  I'll have plenty of time to play with her after the taxes are done. 

The mailman just came, and in my mail was a piece of junkmail that said please deliver this between 2/7/19 and 2/9/19.  Today is the 11th.  Hmmm, something is not right here.  Ah well, I'm tossing it anyway.  It's an ad for Dell computers and I don't do Dell.  (I've always had an HP)

I borrowed an adorable image from the web that I just have to share.  I know that most folks think squirrels are just pesky things, but they really are lots of fun to watch.  I feed them in the yard, and this keeps them out of the attic.  Admit it, isn't this little guy just adorable?

I am so looking forward to being able to sit out on my little porch.  I'm thinking that if I hook up a fan, I may be able to stay out there even longer when the temps get to be too hot.  It's something I'll look into. 

On JTV this morning, they are showing items made of Nevada Black Jade, and they are saying that it is not so easy to come by.  I have a big black rock that my Uncle Freddie gave me years ago that is Black Jade from the desert in either Nevada or Arizona.  It's one of my favorite rocks.

Another image I'd like to share is this one.  Folks, all doggies are precious.  The cruelty that exists toward our animals is just heart breaking.  Our animals are to be treasured and treated respectfully and lovingly.

Now I'm off to do a bit of blog reading.  Then I really must get started on those pesky taxes.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

We got snow here this morning and are expecting more tomorrow along with freezing rain. I am so looking forward to spring. Your little dolly is so cute. I love the dress. The last picture made me want to cry. I think all breeds can be good or bad according to how they are treated. Poor little doggie.
