No pictures tonight just a bit of a catch up on what has been happening here and how we are fairing.
I have been working on the prayer shawl every night and once I am done this post and checked out a few of my blogging buddies I will be at it again. It is moving on slowly but surely and hopefully I will have a picture of the finished product soon. Since my friends mother has only been given 2 to 4 months to live.....it needs to be done and done as quickly as possible.
My basil turned brown and withered over the past few days, so today I replaced it with a healthy one. Now as long as we don't get inundated with rain this one should be okay.
I have weeded the hosta bed and the perennial bed and feel that I am keeping on top of things. Wonder how long that will keep up. I sometimes get tired of all the weeding that needs to be done and kind of let things slide, I hope not to do that this year.
Dad's estate work is slowly but surely coming to an end....well at least the corporation part of it. I am going to take a big hit in taxes, but what else can I do. I am putting as much as I possibly can in my RRSP, but believe me that really isn't much. My sister can tax shelter almost all of her share. Makes me almost wish that I could have made more, or even not put in as much as I did over the years. Oh, well, this is extra money so I guess I should not complain too much. My accountant on the other hand could have a bit of a problem next year making out my tax return.
I went shopping today. Yikes, grocery prices are going up by leaps and bounds. I have a feeling we will be reworking the budget sooner than we thought. As I filled my cart, my thoughts went back to when my mom used to send me grocery shopping. Boy could a person get way more in the way of food back then. Even with inflation I think that those people who are on fixed income are going to have big troubles. I don't think the increased cost of transporting the food has even reached its high point as of yet. I could have fainted when I picked up 10 pounds of potatoes and looked at the price.... $11.99!!! Two weeks ago it was $8.99, if only I had known. Waiting for the garden to start coming in and save us a buck or $11.99.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
