TWiP: Taxing

This Week in Pictures

My week has been dominated by financial things. I finished the taxes with 24 hours or so to spare, and then I set to recording my expenses and such for this year so far. I intend to do keep up with this task through December, but if my enthusiasm fizzles and I don’t make it, I will at least have January-March done when tax time comes around next year.

I’ve also been working on getting the Handmades Shop up and running. I kind of forgot that it was left in limbo when I redesigned the site. Oops. That might explain the complete lack of recent sales. #facepalm

Essentially, I have spent a lot of time this week with my laptop open. And yet, I think I have turned a time-management corner because I have been able to accomplish all of this nerd stuff while still keeping up with the laundry, the dishes, and some beautification projects I’ve been undertaking around the house.

What’s making me so productive lately? It must be that I’ve harnessed the power of Google Now, Google Keep, and their reminders to keep me on a schedule. It’s either that, or it’s the open windows all over the house. (Spring weather finally – YES!!)

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for my Project 365 (one image each day for all of 2015), plus some everyday-life snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…

Saturday

Instagram: I will probably have to move to a proper desk at some point, but for now I am starting my taxes, on my comfy bed, while listening to some nice Saturday morning tunes. Anything to make this task less onerous :-p

365: 2015 100/365 – Well, I started. After lunch begins the mind-numbingly boring task of recording all of my business expenses for the year in a spreadsheet: a task I should have been doing all year long. #ineverlearn

Sunday

365: 2015 101/365 – I’m pretty much still chained to my computer, but hey! It’s the first open window day of the season! Yay!

Monday

365: 2015 102/365 – I found my next crochet project… this hat is adorable!

Tuesday

365: 2015 103/365 – I’m feeling kind of bored with my photography today.

Wednesday

Instagram: I think this little pink button will do nicely 🙂 #crochet #crochetersofinstagram

365: 2015 104/365 – I love this cute little hat. It was so quick to crochet, though, I’m back to having nothing to work on. Maybe I need to make another one 😉

Thursday

365: 2015 105/365 – I discovered this morning that we’ve run out of lunch bags. I had to scrounge.

Friday

365: 2015 107/365 – The first dandelion of the season.

Thanks for taking a peek at this week’s photos! If you want to see this stuff as it happens, please feel free to follow me on Flickr.

I may already have plans to blog about some of these things in greater detail over the coming week, but be sure to leave a comment if there’s something in particular you want to know about!

    • Isn’t it? And so easy to make. I will probably whip up another few once my niece is born and I can see what size her head is – I’ve forgotten what size newborns are!

What do you think about that?
