It’s not yet Christmas, but I’m already looking toward tax time, as I do every year about this time.
I worry and fret about what it might cost me, as I pay once a year and it’s one chunk instead of doing it quarterly.
I believe I pay a $40 penalty for paying it once a year, but it’s just easier for me.
It is nice and sunny out today. But I had to scrape the windshield before I could take Charlie to acupuncture.
He was coughing pretty bad this morning. But he hasn’t coughed much at all this past week. I have only had to give him the hydrocodone cough medicine a couple of times since he last went to get acupuncture.
Because of Christmas, the clinic is taking off all next week. So Charlie won’t have another appointment until the 30th.
I’ve got to order some gloves. I have seldom ever worn gloves. Every year I tell myself I will order a pair and then never do. I think I will get online after I pick him up and do just that.
A Week Until Christmas:
My hands were so cold this morning when I was scraping the ice off the windshield and windows. But I only have cause to wear gloves a few times a year, so I forget about it.
I had a pair of gloves in Texas, though I never needed them. But somehow once I got to Oklahoma there was only one glove in the pocket of my coat.
Just a week until Christmas. I shall try my best to stay out of the stores until after the new year.
Then my focus will be on my taxes in January. I book an appointment with my accountant as soon as I have my documentation.
Last year I was just paying taxes from my ads on this blog. This year will also be additional Social Security taxes.
Looking Forward To Planting Time:
Next up will be looking forward to planting in spring, which usually for me is the middle of April.
I haven’t quite decided what I’m doing this year. But I know I’m planting more zinnias because they did well and lasted quite a while.
Other than that there will be herbs, as I always have herbs.
My rosemary is still doing well outside the French doors. Maybe it will make it till spring.
