    Taxing Thursday #528.

    IT's that time of year, once again to either thank goodness your taxes are filed, are hustling to get them done or putting in for an extension.

    ------------------------

    And what is with this weather, 85 degrees yesterday and getting into the mid 40's tonight.

    If I was crazy, I'd swear it was the End of Days.....

    But it's not and it's time for a hot drink and something good to eat.

    DONE?

    One nice thing about being poor and having no income -------- you don't have to file income taxes. I baked a cake this morning for no special reason - lemon with key lime icing. It's on the bar if anyone would like to try a piece.

    That cake was inspired by the summer-like temps we've had for the past few days. It was supposed to cool off today, but it still got up to 80! Lower 70's tomorrow with some much needed rain. The temps caused so many of the flowering trees to bloom in just a couple of days - cherry blossom, dogwood, forsythia, etc. So pretty. Of course the maple and juniper are past the budding, and the pollen is taking it's toll. Sniffle-sniffle-sneeze-sneeze........

    My taxes are done, filed and paid. Woo Hoo! It's snowing here, yes snowing! It always snows on the day that was my sisters funeral. I'll have some cake please and a tea too. Then off to brush before the dentist.

    I guess the taxes are done - not up to me! Our accountant works that out with my husband, it's e-filed and we don't even have to sign it - it's e-signed. So amazing! No tax stress here...

    I'd like some of that cake, though, it sounds wonderful!

    Okay, this is getting out of control.

    A couple of weeks ago $20K worth of nutella was stolen.

    Last week 140,000 pounds of cheese was stolen (Muenster, as well)

    This week $100,000 worth of hamburger patties was stolen, and yesterday a truckload of strawberries was stolen, but the heist was foiled by a zombie attack. (no, I'm I'm not making this up!)

    1) Has anyone seen David and the Orc lately?

    2) has anyone done in inventory of the L+F?

    Whatever it is, someone has one hell of a case of the munchies!

    Thank goodness my taxes have been filed. But it is a chilly, damp day in Chicagoland today ... so I am drinking tea. Would anyone like some with me, it is just your basic black tea. I'm drinking tea and counting my blessings
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Speaking of taxing, it's snowing and it's mid-April.

    Orc, toss another log on the fire while I sit down and have a coffee.

    Could there be some correlation to the fact that a certain herbal substance is now legal in some states?
