Goodwills! K’s Shirts! Tax Matters! 3.11.23

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:15 pm  

Yesterday, I had a Pileated Woodpecker at my suet feeder. It’s the largest N. American woodpecker, about the size of a crow! I had a tiny nuthatch (smaller than a sparrow) continue to dive bomb that big woodpecker the whole time it was eating the suet. Then chased him to the other tree!


Turns out my exemptions for my house were already set up. Sounds like something I’d do.

Emailed my health insurance guy about the name on my SSA account. He helped me set up the medicare account and the full legal name wouldn’t work. Now I’ll have to go down to their office and get it squared away. Shouldn’t be that big a deal. I have another issue with my SS that I’m trying to figure out with my tax guys before I go down there. I have about five years where the SSA doesn’t have me paying any taxes into SS which is ridiculous.



Watered my upstairs plants.

Put out ant poison.

Walked 1.26 miles while I studied Spanish.

Learned how to take screenshots on my Mac Air.

Ate lunch at Cicis. It was really good. I don’t go there very often. I noticed their location a few weeks ago.

After I ate, I went to Goodwill to try and find shirts for K’s work. No luck.

They had some beautiful wisteria, however!

Cloudy and cool day.

Listened to radio from Spain. The last few days I’ve really felt like I’m understanding a LOT. Makes me feel good.

Always learning new words that I hear.

I stopped at the Goodwill by my house. They had four shirts that K likes! That’s major success.

I cut K’s toenails. Also looked at a small cut under one of her toes. Cleaned it out and put antibiotic on it.

Picked up my groceries. Just had a few items I needed.

Sent my sister-in-law Ann a prayer.

Changed the clocks in my house in anticipation of the time change early tomorrow morning.

Ordered some pants for K.

Just keep going. Study works!
