Here is my March 12 of 12. My pictures don't start until mid-afternoon; my camera battery was dead so I recharged it last night, but then couldn't find it this morning - so no work pics. But I've been having a lot of pain in my shoulder for the past few weeks, which for some reason was REALLY bad today, so I left work early and got a few pictures in.
Once I got home, I took a quick run to Safeway for food for dinner - boneless pork chops, asparagus (on sale!) and pasta:
It's spring (almost) in Seattle, it's been rainy, the back yard is muddy ... so there are muddy paw prints in the dining room (you can't see them too well in this picture - although you CAN see what looks like a spot where one of our beloved pets peed ... now who did that???):
Which leads to a picture of one of our smartest investments - The Bissell ProHeat 2X Carpet Cleaner:
Did you know that we have two cats? Most people don't ... Kasha is a "special needs" kitty who pretty much hides in the bathroom closet. But she made a welcome appearance here:
I went and bought TurboTax software (which is SO cool) yesterday to do my taxes - I've used this for years, it guides you through every type of income and deduction and checks for errors before you file electronically with the IRS, and lets you set up a direct deposit for your refund (or payment). I actually filed my return yesterday, but got confirmation today that it was accepted by the IRS and that my refund will be in my account on the 23rd! Yay! So here's a picture of the documents I had to get together:
I also bought a new iPod case - clear plastic with a brushed-metal face. It's really not scratched up like it looks here, that's some dust and a few scratches on the iPod (it's Scott's old one that he gave to me when he updated) - but the flash showed every imperfection:
To prove spring is coming - a planter on our front walk:
And crocus blooming at the base of a Japanese Maple by the front steps:
A Daphne starting to bloom by the side of the house - they are VERY fragrant, so they're below a window in the living room so that when it's warm enough to open the window, the scent wafts through:
Forsythia blooming in the back yard:
A not-so flattering picture of Yours Truly, as I'm going through my e-mail (I can't remember the last picture taken of me that I though was flattering ... ):
And finally, in the spirit of the "Green" theme for March, a close-up of the moss on our upper deck ... we're REALY hoping to rebuild the deck this year:
Happy March 12 of 12!
