Yesterday was a productive day. I started by going to the bank to take care of some financial matters connect to my bathroom renovations. Next stop was at the doctor’s office to get a prescription for the tub so I would be able to take a tax deduction for it on my income tax next year. The salesman told me that it was a medical device and tax deductible. I decided I’d better have some kind of back-up documentation from the doctor to keep me out of trouble with the IRS. The doctor agreed. He wrote the prescription saying I needed the walk-in tub for my degenerative disk disease and the hydrotherapy for diabetic foot conditions. We agreed; better to have some documentation and not need it than the reverse.
Came home from there and addressed some letters I had written the day before and got them in the mail. Then it was off to the accountant’s office to pick up my tax returns for this year. Since I was closer to the site for the monthly Knitters’ Guild meeting than I was home, I stopped in a McDonald’s for lunch and then headed to the library for the knit meeting. I was, of course, early so I asked about using their computers for checking my email. Since I live in a different county, my library card wasn’t accepted but they gave me a guest one. I had limited success because something was going on with their computer system. Everything was very slow.
The Guild meeting was very interesting. Our speaker this month was a member who has an alpaca farm. She did a slide presentation and they are such cute animals! She gave us a lot of information about them. She also had samples of their blanket (raw fleece), roving and spun yarn as well as a few completed garments and other items.
