Off to the Quiltors ! !

Winter was only a few short days in my area ! - - But - - I manage to complete one Quilt Top  on those Cold nights.  But - now, I'm off to the Quiltors ! !  My new Quilt will look great once the Quiltor adds her special touch !  My dear Sunday School Ladies are talking about another "Quilt Festival" in our midst.  I so enjoy those - - there are never 2 Quilts the same.

"Serving" my Green Beans & Potatoes

My Special Church Family called me & requested that I prepare a Vegetable Dish to be included with a family lunch after a Funeral last week.  I did not hesitate to say 'Yes'.  - - However  - - It's a known fact - - I am NOT a Chef  by any means !  But - - they needed food so they made it E-Z for me.  I prepared a dish of Ham-Flavored Green Beans - topped with New Potatoes - - all comes in a can - - but is truly delicious !  - -   Now - - to my amazement, the Team Leader asked me  to consider participating on 1 of 4  Church Ministry Teams for Future Meals needing to be prepared for Funeral Lunches.  The Lady asked that I prepare the exact Dish of "Green Beans (Ham-Flavored) - with New Potatoes on future Meals - - when I am asked.    I did not hesitate to say 'Yes'.  
'Best Ever' New Potatoes & Green Beans cooked in one pot with just a touch of sugar, tossed with garlic and butter. Kid approved!

       The purpose is for a Sad Occasion - but its truly a 'JOY to Serve' with my Special Church Family.

Extra Fun on Sunday -

Sunday is always a Beautiful Day - - Rain or Shine !   This past Sunday was no exception - - but included the participation in a Wedding Shower for Trent & Natalie.  It was a very enjoyable afternoon - - spent with a special group of people @ the Lake Sherwood Country Club - -  making new friends - - meeting 2 neighbors of mine that are acquainted with both Trent & Natalie - -  enjoying delicious food - -  very entertaining to watch Natalie as she opened one-by-one all the fine gifts received for her & Trent.  I must admit I enjoyed hearing "Oh, you are Trent's Aunt - - so very pleased to meet you !"   It's truly a JOY to be a part of their lives as together they embark upon their new Journey in Life.

Advantage of being a Senior Citizen - - -

There are so many advantages of being a Senior Citizen !  One of those is the fact that a Senior Citizen is eligible to register to have their Income Tax Prepared - - at no charge - - by the Livingston Parish Library - - did I mention - - no charge!   As a Senior Citizen, I'm taking advantage of this opportunity and have already registered for Saturday, Feb. 4. 

This Special Program is Co-sponsored by the Internal Revenue Service & also by the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program.  This provides free tax preparation for participants with a low to moderate income during the tax year.  Of course, you must provide the official tax documents such as W-2s, 1099s, and information for deductions and credits along with a copy of last year’s tax return and a Social Security card.  If you are Blessed with results to receive a Refund, you may also bring proof of a bank account for Direct Deposit. 

Volunteers will prepare only simple returns - - more complicated returns will not be processed.  I'm very thankful my return is very simple; and therefore, I plan to show up at 11:45 on Saturday - Feb. 4.  I also had this done last year - - so I know it really works ! This is truly a big help to me !  

Oh, it's truly such a Blessing to be a Senior Citizen !
