Well, I'm glad I got to get outdoors and enjoy the nice weather while we had it. Winter has returned here. After temperatures flirting with 60-some degrees and bright sunshine and blue skies the weather is now cold (30 degrees not factoring in the wind chill) and snowy. I can't believe that just yesterday we were under a "tornado watch" and the winds were gusting to 60-70 mph and the night before last we had a terrific thunderstorm. I guess it was ushering in a cold front that has now arrived and is most unwelcome!
I finally have finished our taxes and hubby is pleased that we are getting a refund from both state and federal. I hate gathering all the info together that I need to do the taxes even if I do keep it all in one area....I still have to sort through it and it always stresses me out somewhat. But it's done now and I don't have to worry about it for another year!
I received a sad phone call the other day. A friend and neighbor from a previous neighborhood passed away. She was 57. Way to young. She had stopped by to visit me a couple weeks ago and we drank coffee and visited and laughed and caught up on each others lifes. It was a great visit and it lasted about 3 hours! She leaves behind her husband, one son and two daughters and at least 10 grandchildren. She didn't feel well and went to bed Friday night and had a heart attack in her sleep and passed away. No pain, no suffering....very peaceful. For that we can be grateful. Life is short and we never know what it holds for us or our loved ones. I will miss you my friend!
