Dept of Revenue ~ Saying Grace ~ Salad ~ Trader Joe's ~ Basmati Rice Dinner - Military Spouses

Good 49º somewhat cloudy morning.... rained windy late yesterday. Total of 1/4" of rain.

"Angry" doesn't quite cover it. I sent in my Oregon Income Tax along with a check and then the end of March I sent my check for my quarterly payment. I got a letter from them saying I haven't paid them! OMG. I was ready to send copies of the checks and a letter, but called the Department of Revenue yesterday afternoon when I got home. Talked to a SUPER nice lady, Christy, and she said what happened was the quarterly check was applied to 2014 instead of 2013 like it was supposed to be and they screwed up. She said she'll fix it, call back in a week to make sure. WHEW.

This from my friend Cyndi Moreno (yes, Pete's wife!)....
You don't need to understand Chinese to get this... These dogs are adorable. Saying Grace before dinner!

And posted on my FB time line by Debbie Flores.... LOL.

Yesterday was the yearly boob smash. Then a stop at Trader Joe's.

Basmati Rice with Wild Rice herbs and dried veggies (celery, carrots, onion, red bell pepper, garlic, parsley, mushrooms, leeks, and lemon peel), Veggie Chips (26 chips=160 cal.... made with potato, sunflower oil, sea salt, tomato powder, spinach powder, and turmeric), Garlic Rice Noodle Soup Bowl, TJ's Seasoning Salute (onion, black pepper, celery seed, cayenne pepper, parsley, basil,  marjoram, bay leaves, oregano, thyme, rosemary, mustard, coriander, garlic, carrot, orange peel, tomato, and lemon), Wasabi Mayonnaise, Brown Rice & Quinoa Flour pasta, and Cinnamon Alphabet Cookies for Tucker and Sami!

Military Spouses Day

Military Spouses Day is a day to recognize and honor the real backbone of the military..... the spouses of our soldiers. This day recognizes the contributions made by military spouses to the spirit and well being of soldiers and military communities. Where would military moral be without their spouses behind them?

WOW! I did not know there was a Military Spouse Day. I have copied that info and will go to my friend Ashley's FB page and post it there. Her hubby just finished his time in the Army after being deployed to Afgan. for a year. They have been on base in El Paso and she is dying to get home. (She is a Valley Girl) She is also expecting their first baby.

Thanks for that! I know she will love it.
