This year’s tax refund check is basically all ready spent and accounted for, just waiting to see that it has been deposited into my bank and I’ll start writing checks and completing online purchases.
The first thing is one of the Swim Spas that I have been eyeballing for way too long now. I believe that I deserve it after a long hard day and/or night at work. Right now is a great time to buy one, what with all the sales and all going on right now.
Just look at this, this could be me:
Of course I’ll be picking up a couple of new Chick Feeders that I found and totally think will be perfect for what I’m looking for and it will make my dad happy as well. He has really been taken with the chickens that we bought him just a few months ago. It was Christmas time, but we didn’t give him the chickens as a present, we just new that he would get a charge out of them and we found a great deal. It worked like a charm, those chicks did. I haven’t seen him get that attached to any type of critter in so long.
My father was in the Steel Fabrication trade. He retired just three years ago and is going stir crazy. This was not the way he intended to spend his senior years. When my mother passed away it really took it’s toll on him, mentally and physically. He looks like he has aged a good ten years than he has, but has decided to pick himself up and get busy with all of the chores and tasks that are in dire need around the house and the yard.
When the weather finally warms up we are going to start getting the backyard ready for a garden. My mother always loved to garden, so it will be good to have the place looking and smelling the way she always worked so hard to do. She used to make sure that all the window boxes had fresh and well tended flowers and plants in them. All the neighbors agreed that our house and yard was the most beautiful in the whole neighborhood. It would be great to see the place looking like that again. It will take a lot of work, but well worth the time and effort.
