Today was the first day back to school- we're easing back into the routine. I go to "work" tomorrow, but today I chose to tackle my sales tax form. I spent the morning with my 2008 receipt book, a calculator, pages of reports from etsy and paypal, and plenty of coffee. I had good intentions of organizing everything quarterly but stopped after the second quarter of 2008. I dreaded this task, but happily, it's all done.
This was my best year for pottery since I began keeping records in 2001. I am so grateful to you all for buying my wares. Now I 'm more than half-way through my income tax organizing, and my check for the Tennessee Department of Revenue is signed and sealed in its envelope, ready to go to Nashville.
I also got my calendar (both the wall version and my new happy moleskine pocket calendar) updated with birthdays, working days, and holidays for 2009, and in the very few minutes I have left before school pickup, I have a large mess of papers to clear off the dining room table.
It's cold today- 32 and raining intermittently. I'm thinking about making a steamy curried coconut/shrimp noodle soup for supper. I made dough for a king cake this morning and need to bake it (tomorrow is epiphany!) soon.
Maybe I'll learn how to upload photos without a cord this week. . . .
