This is where my feet are planted now.
I have loved the beautiful snow that we have been getting the last 2 weeks. It seems to have been so long since we've had winter.
Another few inches is predicted yet today & the temps are staying low enough all week that we aren't going to lose it any time too soon.
I even spent part of my weekend shoveling the white powdery stuff from our driveway. Yes, we have a snowblower, but I like to shovel. The exercise is good for me & Libbi the Wonder Dog loves to be on the receiving end of the snow as I throw it from the shovel.
It was a very quiet weekend. Dream Boy had to work overtime both Saturday & Sunday, so not much happened on the home front.
I managed to finally finish the poncho I've been working on for a few weeks for Son #2s girlfriend. It'll be in the mail this week to Minnesota (don't ya know).
I certainly hope she likes it. I'll try & capture some pics & post them before I send it off.
Late Saturday Dream Boy & I had an appointment with our tax man, otherwise known as, my uncle. He's in his early 80s & still does our taxes every year! He told me that he's not gonna live forever & I told him that's not an option. I don't trust anyone else to do them. His partner maybe, but it's one of those things that you gotta be picky about.
We are getting a nice little refund this year, but with no thanks to our Congress - we can't file for them until mid February!
Yeah - you heard me.
While fighting over the "fiscal cliff" issues, there wasn't any time for many of the new forms that the IRS needed to update for filing this year, to be approved.
Absolutely insane! While Dream Boy & I work our hiney's off for our pennies, these people sit around & argue about putting our country further into debt, holding up a process that will allow me to get back some of that money I overpaid them in the 1st place, while they continue to get their weekly paychecks/benefits!
Okay - I'm moving off that subject.
We also sold our old retro couch at the consignment shop we took it to at the beginning of January. So we stopped by & picked up our check.
I went to Michael's yesterday after church & picked up my Smash Book for our Florida trip this year.
Love those books! Especially when they're on sale!
So I'm back to school this week for a full week. Lot's to do getting my kids back on track with all the snow days last week & my being gone a few of them too.
I'm actually looking forward to getting back into the groove with them because next week is a short week for me as Dream Boy & I will be heading south......
to put my toes in this:::
:::soft, sugary sand between my pudgy toes.
Have a happy week everyone.
Stay safe & stay well!
