Today has been rather busy and the hired hand came back to work this afternoon so I made a seafood chowder for supper and baked some Pillsbury Apple turnover for desert. I just wasn't feeling all that chirpy today and thought that it would be a change. I usually bake from scratch.
I had no idea what I would write about and maybe under such circumstances I shouldn't blog . I'm feeling myself to be a bit boring  at times.

I just finished answering my emails and checking blogs after working on three months of  HST                   ( Harmonized Sales Tax) for the farm. There are so many transactions that happens in the course of three months and we pay 13% sales tax on everything we buy for the farm and then we get a rebate back from the government after we file the tax claim.  It's a tedious job that I really don't like but have to do, just like the Pay Roll deductions from the employees that we have to remit to the Government for the 15th of each months. If we're late they penalize us. Thank goodness for on-line filing and banking.

Today I went to get my flu shot, picked up some calf feed, gas up the car and did some banking and paid for my two widows. Of course it was more expensive than I thought it would be.  But at least I'm still appreciating the life giving light that comes through those widows.

I'm hoping that everyone stay safe from the flu. Kim from Millie's Mat is down with it and my thoughts are with her, her auntie and mom.
