That's where I've been. I am suffering for my sinful ways this week. Resolved: record-keeping will be a priority this year.
I have been slogging through receipts and piles and piles of paper. It's so not right to be doing this when we are having our first decent weather this spring, but that's what I get for putting it off. I'm reaching the home stretch now, but a couple of questions have my sitting here waiting for someone to respond on the IRS chatline. Ah me.
As I've been working on last year's taxes I have also been putting this year's records in order. It should be a simple matter to enter the data into the spreadsheets now and keep up on a regular basis. I am not a math-minded person and as a leftie I am certainly in unfamiliar territory working on these forms. But I am getting there; the end, thank goodness is in sight.
I have been watching Larry outside in the garden, planting the onions, peas, lettuce, and carrots. And here I am, stuck inside. Yes, I am feeling sorry for myself. I did run down and see the baby chickens in their new home. They moved to the henhouse this morning and so far they seem to be settling in very well.
We took a break on Tuesday to restock both booths, and yesterday we went to a few yard sales. We found a few bargains but there are not many sales yet since it's been just too cold and wet. I expect to see the roadside blossom with signs next weekend, however, as the temperatures will be closer to the normal range for this time of year.
I wish I had something more exciting to report! Tomorrow will be a fun day as I'll be participating in the book-signing and reading event at Taylor Books in Charleston. We plan to look for some cabbage and broccoli plants too, to complete planting the spring gardens. And maybe by Sunday evening I will have finished these tax forms and be ready to breathe again.
