    My DH is a CPA. He checks several times a year to make sure that we are having enough taxes withheld. It's far easier (and less painful) to do a course correction mid-year than to be hit with a big tax bill unexpectedly. Definitely keep that appointment with your accountant in June or July, even if it has to be done over the phone.

    Some people are so ignorant. Too bad it was not captured on camera.

    Lucky that your neighbour wasn't more seriously hurt. She has good neighbours.

    I hope it's not covid but just a cold or regular flu. If you get worst, please get tested. Hugs.

    Good afternoon!
    Last night about 1:30am I got a call from first alert. My neighbor (she's 88) had pressed her alarm. So I grabbed the keys to her house and went over. She had fallen down and couldn't get back up. I made sure she wasn't dizzy or hurt and then called my husband. Together we got her upright and then in her chair. She was so funny - while she was on the floor she kept saying "I should do a commercial for them - I've fallen and I can't get up!" She has the prettiest French accent, she is from Belgium. The fire dept arrived and checked her and then they left. Only one of the fire dept. men was wearing a mask. I was surprised they all weren't wearing them.

    Today my daughter came for the groceries I bought for her last week. She was glad to get them. She is working from home for the next few weeks, teaching her 6/7/8th graders remotely. School had been put on break until April 7 at least. She said there is very little traffic out there; she drove from south san Francisco through Marin.

    I received a jury summons so I called my dr for an postponement. Like others on this forum, I have systemic Lupus, Sjogrens, Asthma etc. so should be staying safely at home. I've never asked for an excuse before, I always just go. But not right now with the virus. Hope you are all sheltering in place or doing what's best for your health and the health of your neighbors. I'm so thankful for all of you.

    I hear we are probably shut down in town but really don't know. I hardly ever go there. Yesterday I made my annual scarecrow for the pond. Her name is gertrude. The fish are really funny. I went down a couple of hours after putting her up and they were all looking up at her wondering why they weren't getting fed. DH went down this morning and said they were doing the same thing when he got there. We think its funny. I guess they think its me, she has on my clothes and is my size. I'll take a picture when the rain stops and show her to you.

    Hi Everyone, I'm late today. I was busy in the kitchen all day doing some baking to keep my mind busy.

    My DD just called me to say that Amazon has quit delivering except for medical emergencies and all of Orange County, California is under mandatory quarantine. Her business is in Orange County but she lives in LA County. She was able to get a little food at Trader Joe's today. They had limits on everything. She found some dry pinto beans somewhere for $10.99 a pound (not sure where this was but she bought them because she had seen them much higher). I so wish she would jump in her car and drive here to ride it out, but she has too many responsibilities.

    Jeff and I are okay and so are the Girls. We will have soup and sandwiches tonight for dinner. I baked oatmeal cookies and brownies today also. When I get stressed I cook. I used to make tapioca but gave that up a few years ago because no one liked it. You could have used it for mortar for laying bricks.

    I'm off for now. I hope everyone has everything they need and that you are safe and secure. Hugs.......

    Must be a Mike thing. Hubby rarely eats leftovers and it drives me nuts.

    Happy St. Paddy's Day!!! Quiet here in Toronto, almost everything closing. My daughter was extremely distraught this morning as she was due into work at a mall. There were several bad experiences yesterday with people purposely coughing on her (not kids or teens either). Today she broke down crying because she is so afraid that she may bring the virus home. Her work managers say there is nothing they can do to stop people from being jerks and to just not worry about it. She fears for her co-workers who have small children and those who have their own on-going health issues. I am doing my best to help her not to panic but I know I am not making much headway with all the stuff on the news and social media.

    With my youngest, we made bread together for the first time. We had a blast and it tastes pretty good too. lol She is enjoying her extra time off (March break now plus 2 more weeks for virus control). I am going to peek around a bit more here and then back to 'mommy' mode and occupy those fertile minds of my children onto more healthy things......like fun.

    So have a great day and remember to have FUN!
    Hugs,
    Sandy

    Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!! I spent yesterday, my birthday, in my house since there is really no where to go. We have the same restrictions as most every place --- schools closed, restaurants/bars closed except for take-out, movie theaters, gyms, non-essential stores closed, and the list goes on and on. I put an order in to my local grocery store for pick-up, although the first available time was not until tomorrow between 2 and 3 pm. I have enough here until then.

    I do have to go out in a little bit to pick up my taxes. The office called late yesterday afternoon and said they were closing today at 5 p.m. for a couple of weeks and I needed to pick up my taxes or they could mail them. I told them I would pick them up because I am not sure how to do the electronically send in tax returns when you owe. The accountant called late last week and said, unfortunately, I had a HUGE tax to pay this year --- almost 3 times what I got back last year. He said the difference was that I now have to file as a single --- last year I still had my husband here and we could file as married filing jointly. He passed away in March of 2018 so I can no longer do that. Also, the his annuity that we changed to me after his death did not have enough money being taken out for taxes. I had to have $400 additional taken out each month which I changed immediately. The accountant told me to call him in June or July and made arrangements to go in to the office and he will go over everything and make sure I am on the right track.

    Worked a little bit in my sewing room yesterday --- still trying to get it organized. I still haven't found that quilt top made with some of my husband's shirts. I just cannot imagine what I did with it. I am planning on spending some time in there again today. I would like to spend a little time out on my back patio reading but the temps are not quite warm enough yet. Maybe later this week when it is supposed to warm up a bit.

    Have a great day in your "self-quarantine" and hope you all stay well.

    Nancy

    We managed to get quite a bit of sunshine yesterday, hope for more of the same today. We got out and walked, DH made it to the end of our street and back, maybe a 1/4 mile then I walked another mile or so. For some weird reason my right hip started hurting part way, that is new, ugg.🙄 I hope it was just the uneven sidewalk. I hope to do some more today. I plan on wearing my shamrock socks and the bright green Tshirt that was bought for our June cruise. It is looking less and less likely that we will sail then. We do still have some time for this crazyness to subside.
    I didn't do a thing in my sewing room yesterday but did finish a book, maybe sewing will soothe my soul today.🙂
