last Friday of tax season!

This season seems really long, could it be the weather? Today I am filling in at the Edith Dyer Library , if you are in the neighborhood, come on down and say hello.  🙂

This week was LOOOONG, I did taxes 4 days.  Yesterday was the last day at the old office, it was hectic but we made it fun – had lunch brought it, did over thirty tax returns.  Whew!

So the real fun is tomorrow – Mom is coming over, we are heading to Bangor to pick up niece B at college – to go back to the bead store.  Any excuse!  B likes to make earrings, Mom needs buttons, so we will probably go to JoAnn’s as well to see what we can find.  Then lunch, and who knows what shopping we will do after that?

Nothing much else new right now – that’s what happens when I do taxes all week.  But next week we are through, and then things can get back to normal, and I might have things to share on the employment front.  Also the medical.  Some good some bad, or at least, not good.  More later.

Here’s what’s not new – SNOW.  Three days this week the school delays crawled along the bottom of the TV. Today is an icy mix.  But we might get a gorgeous weekend, who knows?

  1. I hope the medical bad news goes in the annoying-but-can-be-taken-care-of column. On the weather front we had a brief heavy rain and thunder last night. No Daffs here yet. But the hellebore is starting to look like it might want to live.

    1. I hope so, too – should have news today. I told them it was OK to leave it on the answering machine because I won’t be home. I hope they remember that. rain is good! We are having some now, but it was really cold and icy this morning. The top edges of the raised bed walls are out of the snow, but the beds themselves still have snow, so I would guess we have 8-10 inches on the ground. Still have piles a couple of feet high where we shoveled. It is coming, I know, but man, it is taking a long time. Glad your flowers want to live! Hellebore is a wonderful sign of spring.

    1. I am OK with that. Why should everyone be in frozen land? We had lots of melting the past few days. 🙂 Actually, it is warm here this weekend – lots of melting!

    1. I hope so as well. Still waiting for lab reports. As for the bead store Oh heavens – I had a grand old time. I’ll post some things shortly to show you how bad I was. 🙂

    1. we did! And when all the snow melted off the raised beds Sunday, I saw that the tulips are popping out of the ground already! they were under the snow.

          1. Sounds awesome. We are heading towards winter, and the rain should have stopped by now, although we still get some rain. Soon it will be falling leaves and early evenings, so much better to knit!

          2. I hope the rain stops soon! I do love the changes in light – both to early evenings, and too longer ones after a winter of darkness. They both feel good when they come.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
