No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

"The future enters into us in order to transform itself in us, long before it happens." - Rainer Maria Rilke

I awoke to sunshine and warm temperatures. Bailey helped too in the awakening process. What would I do without him?

It is nice to have a somewhat slow morning. I had time to sit and read my inspirational readings, take care of Bailey, and clean up the kitchen a bit. Also crossed off one of the cleaning projects the housing authority thought I should clean now it is one down and one to go.

Today's project was to go into SLO-town to get our taxes done. It wasn't a big deal last year although we went through AARP. But this year, we went through VITA Tax Counseling for the Elderly.

We arrived 30 minutes early and two-and-a-half hours later; we finally left with our taxes submitted electronically. We were doing fine until one of my 1099s was above the tax preparer's level of learning. Trying to get someone in the know to come over and show this person what to do was like pulling finger nails.

Once the paperwork was done, then everything had to be reviewed. I am glad I brought a book to read. Michael was mildly (and I say this with tongue in cheek) irritated and ready to spit nails. In my ear I heard, "we are not doing this again next year." Yup, that is a definite.

The best part of the day besides coming home and nothing more to do was a stop off at the local Ace Minor's store. They were having a 20 percent off sale and I was able to get a five pound bag of bird seed for under $5.

For another two months Bailey will have cat TV.

So for today, I bid you adieux.
