wed. post

Good morning.
We are continuing our colder than normal spring with temps yesterday reaching a high of only 40. Our normal high should be near 60. :-(
But things are looking up. The forecast is calling for near normal temps by the weekend, and possibly, dare I say, slightly above normal temps by the middle of next week.
And despite the temps, mother nature is 'springing' forth. The grass is greening up, and the spring flowers are slowly emerging.
Monday, after we returned home, I cleaned out the mo-ho, while Craig did laundry and bookwork. I then got the cleaning bug and cleaned the bathroom and vacuumed. Tuesday, after we shopped for the weeks groceries, we came home and I did absolutely nothing all day. It was cold and windy out, so no yard work, and I couldn't find an ounce of ambition to do anything. So I played on the puter all day.
Craig got 2 letters in the mail saying our tax returns were in error. No one ever likes getting a letter from the IRS! But we had already gotten our automatic deposit refund, that didn't match our figures. The letters informed us that we miscalculated our self employment tax, and we were due a bigger refund than we had figured. Apparently last fall, as part of the stimulus package, they changed the way self-employment tax was figured and Craig must have missed that. It was a one time deal, so it won't happen again next year.
And this week in the Salon looks to be quite busy, and busy is good. -)


  1. Glad to hear they found in your favor. Congratulations!

  2. It's fun to have a day to just play on the computer. What happy news about the taxes!
