Hello y'all! First day of spring and I am spring cleaning....and very tired....so taking a break to chat! We've had rain again...for 15 days out of 21 in March....but not too much at one time, just soft gentle rains mostly, the kind that sinks in....we so desperately need it, the lakes and water sheds are beginning to resupply! It is raining again today, thus the cleaning mood.....LOL! All the trees and weeds are so green and growing so fast! I have been so busy with this temporary job and the taking care of the eyes...etc...that I have not had time to clean properly. This morning my bathroom, bedroom and the kitchen and dining area got steam cleaned, even the floors and re-shined! It is in the low 50's, cloudy and gloomy outside, but the inside is glowing (well, half of it anyway)! I've worked up a sweat so time to take a coffee break...I got some Southern Pecan flavored coffee and creamer....it is so yummy and tastes like a real treat.
I've got my bed changed and the sheets and spread washed...the couch cover has been changed and washed too...now all I need is a small load of towels and whites and a medium sized load of shirts/tops and one of jeans...then I will be all ready for next week.
Sure is getting hectic at the accounting office, everyone just insists their taxes be done before the deadline of April 15, but it ain't gonna happen, some will have to file extensions...we have over 115 that have been dropped off to date and that doesn't count the 20-25 that are done each day! I have been trying to plug in some of the forms and correcting addresses or adding new information so that it will not take as long to finish the returns, but some of them are just way too complicated and the new laws with the Affordable HealthCare Act means more forms and takes longer to file, so at the end of the day I am too tired when I get home to clean or do laundry. I barely get litter boxes cleaned and all the fur babies fed before I am in my jammies and on the bed watching TV....ROFL! Getting older don't ya know? (Actually, The Voice, American Idol and Dancing With the Stars and some others that I have to DVR, are for me to fall asleep to)! LMBO!!!
I think I did manage to do a page for Calvin last week and I did a couple of QPs to give away at Miriam's Scraps this week using her MK19. The QP of Calvin is a gorgeous gift from Dawn at OklahomaDawn, that girl sure makes some awesome papers and elements, then gives them away and her templates are the greatest. This entire page is her template and her kit called Rustic Charm (you can find it on her blog)! The photos are a series that Margaret took of Calvin playing in the dirt with his trucks. Isn't he adorable?
Miriam's Scraps were so fun to make, her MK19 is supposed to be a mini kit, but is an awesome MAXI kit that she is generously sharing with all of you on her blog! Check it out you will love it! Here are the first 2 QPs I've made if you are interested...I've even made a page of Ms Annabeth in the #2 QP. Thanks Dawn and Miriam for all you share with me!
