Taxes and Turkey

From this....

to this...
We worked together, each doing the part we were better suited to do...
sometimes checking each others addition, sometimes adding receipts simultaneously
on two separate calculators..
It felt good to get it done--organizing some papers and getting rid of others.
It's kind of like roasting a turkey at Thanksgiving.
It always sounds like such a big deal, but it isn't really that difficult.
(I'd take turkey over taxes ANY day, though.)
The orchid?
 My first!  A gift from a house guest last Sunday night.
Isn't it beautiful?.


  1. Glad you got your taxes done sweetie.

  2. Such a wonderful feeling when taxes are complete!! But I'll take the Turkey over tax any day!!! Love it! Thanks for a HUGE smile, Rebecca! And that's a gorgeous orchid! It matches your blog beautifully, too! Love, Janine XO

  3. Beautiful Orchid! I love it. Glad you have your taxes behind you!

  4. Yes, your orchid is very beautiful, and it's beautiful to have that tax task behind you now!
    Enjoy a job well done!
    Love to you,

  5. Congratulations, well done and yes the orchid is beautiful.......:-) Hugs

  6. The Orchid is lovely! And I'm with you, I'd much rather have the turkey! Congratulations on a job well done. I'll bet you both felt good afterwords!
    Love Di ♥

  7. We couldn't begin to do ours... I'm so very impressed! Glad to have ours done, although the state refund promises to be late in arriving. Why am I not surprised?!
