The end of a very exciting week is at last coming to an end. I've been sitting here at my computer, preparing for this next week's schedule of events. Last week, I had the excitement of starting as a freelance accountant, one day with a new client. After how things went this week, I have to say that I like both clients much better than I did last week. In addition to feeling like I really used my time well, I had enough extra time this week to take care of the usual and unusual demands of life. My garden is in place, the house is mostly in order, and things are right on track.

Now, for this coming week. I'm afraid I will be very busy, as I have my normal duties and am expecting a visit from the IRS. I don't know how much fun I can pack into this week!!! My small business, Nekko Systems is being audited - and you should see the list of things they're asking for! Most of it is laughable, and I don't suppose that the auditors will be here more than half a day, once they see that this is a home-business with few deductions and very little income. I do think this will probably be a good experience for me, as an accountant by profession.

No pictures today...you don't want to see the stack of paperwork I've had to accumulate.

Yes, it is Spring. I have been spending the last few days getting my garden in order for Spring and Summer. As I went out to weed, till, and plant, I found that I to harvest! Although most of what I pulled out of my garden was mostly dead, I did find a few onions and a giant head of lettuce. We have been eating salad every night since I pulled it Saturday. I also planted new veggies - tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, peas, bell pepper, eggplant, and strawberries. It's raining today, so you'll have to wait for a photo.

But that's not what you want to read about...you came here because of my job information. So here it is. I am now a freelance accountant. After months of cash flow and decision-making problems (not on my part) at the company which I've been working for over 2 years, they decided to close the doors. Then they decided to stay open. And they'll probably change their minds a few more times, but I care a whole lot less now that I'm a free agent. I also have to be at FMG a whole lot less that before, so I went and picked up another part-time'client.' Between the accounting work and Nekko business we've been picking up (oh yeah, I did get that new client for Nekko, too), I've got plenty to keep me busy.

And I'll try to update my blog more frequently...
