Another great Saturday! I was in cleaning mode,
starting in the kitchen on the telephone desk and
cabinet. The 2 bottom doors hold 2 shelves of tea
towels, dish cloths, potholders and tablecloths. I
sorted and rearranged, just in case I could recycle
something to Goodwill. Not much there that I didn't need.
Then the 2 drawers that hold extra pencils, pens,
twist ties and misc. Mostly tossing extra odds and ends.
The counter holds the phone, a cup of pencils, note pads
but also held tons of papers. I sorted through a huge swath
and tossed 3/4 of the accumulation. The top shelf also
saw a huge reduction. Everything looks better now.
Next I addressed my 5 drawers of t-shirts, sweaters, etc.
Two larger bags of clothes to take to Goodwill or another
charitable organization. Everything was freshened up
before I carried it upstairs. By the time I finish, I should have
a car load to those who can use it.
We met with the tax man this morning. DS and DIL will see
a refund over $2,000. They were so happy!
And we saw a refund for the second year in a row although
this year's was large enough so that we will make NO
quarterly deposits and still get money back. DH lost money
on the farm since we had to pay for the new fencing around
the pasture and feed costs soared mid summer. Guess I was
more worried about owing money and haven't been sleeping
the best but now that concern is gone.
The only thing pressing now is studying for my life/health
insurance license. Time to hit the books.
Have a simply serene Sunday. HUGS!
