It's that time of the year....

It's that time of the year....

Friday, February 11, 2011

Whew, that’s done for another year…

the taxes I mean.  I went over them with the accountant yesterday and now they are in his hands.  I am hoping for a refund, but I am not holding my breath.  My daughter went with me and afterwards we had lunch at Grumpy Pete’s now the 8th Street something or the other.  The food was very good.
Now what do I have on tap for today?  First I should get the weather out of the way.  It is 18 degrees right now.  This is the first morning in a while that the wind chill hasn’t been below zero.  The forecast for next week is a string of 40 degree plus temps.  I am hoping it will melt off some of the many inches of snow on the ground.
My daughter is coming over in a few weeks and we are really going to do some serious spring cleaning.  It was so hectic when I moved in that I just put stuff away to get it out of sight.  We are going to clean closets and take the curtains down to wash.  I can hardly believe that I have lived here almost a year.  The time flies by so quickly.  I still haven’t found my second iPod.  I know it is buried under something.
I hope you all have a blessed weekend.  Stay safe and be happy!!
Red heart  Beth


  1. Hello dear Beth!
    Hope all is well with you.
    Hope your daughter and you'll have a nice time together.
    Wish you a nice weekend!
    Take care
    Hugs Ann

  2. Lovely Beth hope you and your daughter have a wonderful time. It's 10c 50f here today heating is off , there is a drizzle and pretty dull but not bad at all. Have fun Hugs Beth xx

  3. Hi Beth,
    A year nearly already, time certainly does fly by. Hope you have a good weekend too - Hugs Nita

  4. Got our taxes out of the way and have already received our state refund. Federal is due for direct deposit Monday. I was mazed at the amount we're getting back but it's a blessing because we can get ahead on a few bills and there's even enough left for a few luxuries....I'M GETTING A NEW LAPTOP AND A LARGER CAMERA BAG....WOO-HOO!

  5. I'm glad you're finished with your taxes...I do hope somehow you get something back out of it. We haven't even gotten our forms yet but then it takes about a half an hour to get them done for us on-line so no big deal. It's warmer for us today too but we have a high wind warning in effect so I doubt it will feel very warm. Bless you my friend.

  6. I know your glad to get the taxes out of the way. Please don't mention cleaning....

  7. I like your new look Beth, nice Valentine feel.
    \It still seems very cold where you are, we're warming up a little, but getting very grey and wet.
    Two hopes for you, first you get a refund, and second you find your other i-pod, at least if you get no 1, you;ll be able to buy no 2,
    Have a lovely week-end.

  8. I'm here Beth. You know it's nice to take a break from the computer whether it's intentional or not. I haven't done my taxes yet. I probably won't be back here till Sunday at the earliest so just in case...Happy Valentines Day Beth!

  9. Glad you got your taxed behind you. Have fun on the Spring cleaning, always good to make more room. Hope you find your I-Pod. When I start digging, I usually find something I haven't seen in a long time.

  10. Hey's your Twin over here in the sunny State of Tennessee. I am so glad the sun is shining for the SECOND day! Hold me BACK!

    Cleaning? Um..I'll pass but thanks anyway. :-) (you know I'm kidding).


  11. Could you send some of that spring cleaning energy up here? I need it. Our tax appointment isn't for a couple weeks yet. But I look at it this way. If a refund is due I have money coming, if not time to save up.

  12. What is happening says IF you don't cleaning today :-)
    Have a lovely weekend.

  13. TWO iPods AND taxes finished? You are living the dream...

  14. haha Beth

    times flies when u get thoseyearly things before ur eyes
    succes with the curtains Everything will smell like SPIC and Span

    Enjoy the weekend

  15. Is there A Pete? and is he Grumpy? ;-)
    Good that your taxes are over and done with, and who knows, maybe you will get a refund? I'll keep my fingers crossed, but like you, not hold my breath...
    and a year has passed? Time flies on wings of haste, so I think I'll slow down a bit!! :-)

  16. ☆☆ HELLO Beth! It’s only me. Hope all is well with you. Just coming by to say ‘Have a most excellent day.’ ☆☆

  17. Beth, thanks for stopping by. Hope you and your family are well. It seems like an age since I was last here.

  18. Hey Beth (Aunt Beth to Sam & Lucy), I am still doing those darn taxes but the last of the 1099's are supposed to be mailed out to us taxpayers no later than 2/15, so almost done now, thank goodness. I wanted to run by and see how you are and I see it's still an icebox out your way. Whew, it's been wayyy too long now. Guess what I saw yesterday! One of my chipmunks came out from hibernation and sat on that stump in my yard. He spent about an hour just looking around and catching some sun rays, but that means Spring is definitely on it's way. Let's hope anyway.
    See you soon :) XOXOXO

  19. ☆☆ Uuugh! Yes tax time. Ever wonder why the IRS calls it Form 1040? Because for every $50 that you earn, you get 10 and they get 40!! Besides doing your taxes, sound like you have been keeping well. Good for you! Glad to hear! ☆☆
