This past week was a rather quiet week, even at work. Which is wonderful considering it was fiscal month end. I'm an accountant, but I don't do taxes (except my own). While I don't have an April 15th tax crunch, I do have a monthly cycle I am very much subject to, which some big deadlines. But, as I say, this week things went smoothly. Yes, even with an account that was unexpectedly out of balance when I went to reconcile it. But I think I have a handle on that, so I entered the weekend happy.
Another reason why I'm happy? These pastel lights for my balcony came. In late 2020, I bought various colored lights to hang on my balcony for holidays other than Christmas throughout the year to give us a little more cheer. Last spring, I got to thinking I wanted to find some pastel lights to hang up around Easter. I didn't do anything about it last year, but I did this year. I'm not sure if my neighbors have made the connection or not, but I like them, and that's what matters, right?
This morning, I went paddle boarding at a nearby lake. A friend has two, and she invited me to go with her. We were supposed to hit a pocket when the wind was going to die down. It didn't. Paddling out to the dam was rough, but once we got there, we turned around and didn't paddle at all back. We were back in no time. Still, it was nice to be outside for a while today. We got plenty splashed, but it was a warm day, so it wasn't an issue.
So far, the squirrels are leaving my flower boxes alone. It seems like they bother them most in late summer, but I'm taking it a week at a time.
