Morning Dribble

Sometimes a day gets started in a wonderful way. My husband woke before me and took the following photos of deer in our back yard.



Living in Arizona through the winter has its drawbacks. You’re not assured of receiving all of your mail. We never received the renewal notice for the truck. Yesterday’s mail brought a surprise notice of delinquency from the DMV. So, we get to go to Arvin in another week to plead our case of innocence. I have documentation in case they need it. <sigh> I have to wonder what else we didn’t get in the mail while we were away. Forwarding orders expire, and not knowing when we’d be returning home, I guessed at ours–and two weeks went by before we noticed we weren’t getting ANY mail. There’s no guide for how to be a Snowbird–you ‘wing’ it until you’ve worked out all of the bugs. Seems like someone would write a book about it!

Income taxes is another thing that happens whether you’re home or away — I called our tax preparer and asked her to file an extension. I didn’t know it then, but an extension lasts until sometime in October! I don’t need quite that long to get my stuff together. So this morning I have an appointment to finish filing our taxes. Big check mark on the “To Do” list.

I gave up trying to get the 12th BOM sewn. I had to rip stitches three times and as I wrote to my friend and co-BOM partner, I wound up tearing out stitches that should have stayed in. Not good. So I changed shoes and headed out the door with the hubby to do a walk around the block (or several blocks). We came back and I considered whether I wanted to mess with the block again — nope, it can sit there on the ironing board for this evening.Tomorrow is soon enough to tackle it. 

In looking at my past entries, I noted that I’d written about Open Diary a couple of times. When I checked the link to see if it went anywhere, it didn’t — so I Googled Open Diary and found a Wikipedia article on it. Amazing place… 

That’s all the dribble for today — I ask for blessings for all, be safe, be well, and please be happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them.

The easiest way to define myself is as a very happily married woman with two sons and two grandsons. My hobbies include reading, writing, sewing, trains (watching, photographing and running them in G scale), and travel. My husband and I are retired and we spend our winters in Arizona. I used to own a secretarial and desktop publishing business, but closed it when my husband retired in 1999. We have truly enjoyed our retirement years, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.

    And once you have done all these blocks of the month, what then?
    Yes, I am sorry you decided to be a snowbird. It takes you away from your wonderful new home to another out there in the desert. I wish next time you are down here you could make time for a lunch or dinner catch up. Hugs.
