A Taxing Day
Logan's exhausted from doing the taxes.
You really don't want to be around here when it's time to work on taxes. There's cussing (which is a rarity in these-here-parts), muttering under the breath, papers everywhere, and in general high levels of distress.
Uncle Sam hates the idea that hubby has a free-lance job in addition to his regular work, and we get hit with a huge self-employment tax every year. Therefore, the process is put off as long as possible. But today it's done! And the damages were just about what we expected.
Which explains this.
We've also got another project to go to retreat. Cutting time is tomorrow. This is the Pinwheel pattern from Phenomenal Fat Quarter Quilts by M'Liss Rae Rawley. There are six dark/medium fat quarters for the pinwheels, six lights for the background, yellow for the inner border, and a pretty print for the outer border. A lot of the fabrics are from Chez Moi for Moda (some are "Posh" and some are "Charisma," plus a few odds and ends thrown in).
Plans for this weekend are also firmed up. A few postponements had to be made due to Linda's health, but we're still on to attend The Cheezies concert at Miami University tomorrow night. Linda's son is a member of this men's acapella group. I've included a Youtube link to give you an idea of the joy in music that will be shared. (You'll need to cut and paste the link into your browser.) Philip is the tall, light brown-haired fellow singing and emoting right behind the lead singers. This video makes my heart soar with love for this young man!
Saturday night a couple of girlfriends are coming over to eat pizza and watch "Calendar Girls." Great chick flick evening! And of course, this Sunday is Easter. Rejoice!!
