considering the volume of work I accomplished in a mere twelve hours. Of course, the pile of papers still looks big, but it's getting done, little by little. I rearranged the desk a little to make folders and things more accessible.
I am also making headway on getting ready for tax season: shredder out of the closet, three months worth of cat litter on hand for keeping the associates happy...
The client folders are already done.
Bee is checking out my shoe for some reason - and probably the boxes I'm hoping to have ready to ship out on Monday. I've decided to spend Saturday at the sewing machine - I am pretty sure I'll need a break by then!
My sweet friend, Erin, sent me an ME-a-day calendar. The mailman brought it to me today - and I got to enjoy the first ten days of the year all at once! The funny thing is, I sent her one for Christmas, too. Maybe we should coordinate our gift strategy next year - and save postage. Aggie suggested that - isn't she smart?
The wise one - although she is not much help with paperwork...
I did manage, over the past couple of evenings, to finish reading the latest Hamish Macbeth mystery from M.C. Beaton. Death of Kingfisher is typical Hamish - he is always one step ahead of his nemesis, Inspector Blair, from the Strathbane Police Department - much to the inspector's chagrin. Hamish is such a lovable character - for being a lazy village police constable, with absolutely no ambition to advance. The fact that he is truly happy where he is confounds his superiors and frustrates the would-be Mrs. Macbeths. I can't wait for the next one - number twenty-eight!
I think I've done enough work for one day - time to blow out the sugar cookie scented candle that's been brightening up my work area all day. Isn't it pretty? The candle was a Christmas gift and it fit perfectly in the candle holder that Ariela gave me for my birthday. Another happy coincidence!
