We left for our walk in the park a little after 7 this morning. The sky was putting on a show as we left the RV park and drove east on the highway.
|As we drove into the park this morning - this was our view.|
As we made our way around the first loop, here's the next view.
|The leaves are growing fast - you can see a big difference every day now.|
|Our swimming pool bathhouse.|
|I love this little area and the tulips were just gorgeous this morning.|
Back home, I made our shakes, then did the morning chores. I already had another load of laundry to do - it accumulates way too fast.
I took some chicken thighs and a leg out of the freezer so they could thaw for dinner tonight. Dean will grill them, along with sweet potato fries, and deviled eggs; that we will follow with white chocolate pudding and 2 small white chocolate chip cookies for our dessert.
I made a few calls and discovered that we can use the incorrect 1099 even though they didn't hold KS tax out for 3 months. The online program I am using will adjust the tax rate based on our income - and sure enough that is what happened...the state tax increased. Overall it was quite easy. I was able to finish up everything and get our 2019 taxes filed. Woo-hoo!
Next I wrote a letter to the company that "thinks" we live in Texas asking them to make changes for the balance of 2020. I explained we still reside in Kansas, and only use a mail service out of Texas so we can get our mail while we are traveling. Mike suggested we move our residence to Texas. We seriously thought about that when we decided to go full-time. After giving it quite a bit of thought we decided it would be too much of a hassle to change so many things back when we are no longer full-timing, knowing we would return to Kansas.
After filing the tax return, we had a light lunch followed by our daily apple. I'm going to need more apples after our lunch tomorrow, so I better head over to our grocery store in the morning before the weekend arrives. I'm starting to get low on almond milk as well, but we are in good shape otherwise.
Tyler at Robison Automotive called to let us know they have finished the repairs on the car, so we went down to get it. I put hand sanitizer on, came home and then used Lysol on the inside of the car, and the outside doors. Is it overkill? I don't think so.
It's been a busy day, and the list of things I made that I wanted to get done is quickly dwindling. I think I'll be ready to get my first tub of pictures tomorrow so I can begin the process of sorting them. While I'm not looking forward to it - it's not because I don't want to get it done - I'm going to have a terrible time deciding what to keep, what to give the kids, and more importantly what to get rid of.
While I'm at the garage tomorrow I'm going to look for a puzzle as well. I think I'd like to have one here in case I need a break from pictures.
Our dehumidifier quit us over the winter. Once we were back in Kansas we realized we needed a new one soon. The humidity can get pretty high here, especially when those fronts start to move in. I ordered it over a week or so ago. It arrived today. Dean used sanitizer on his hands, then sprayed Lysol on the shipping box, as well as the box the dehumidifier came in. All I had to do was plug it in and it started working. These are great devices.
My friend Betty posted a picture of this cloudbank on Facebook, so I ran out to take this picture. Betty and I are not too far apart - by the way the crow flies.
With this picture I am going to bid you goodnight. I haven't had a chance to read any blog posts today, so that's how I will spend my time the next hour or so, while we enjoy our evening snack.
Thanks for following along. I'm so thankful to be in Oswego where we feel relatively removed from much of the world right now, and safer. God is always with us, and I am very thankful he is!
