Early Spring Picnic

It feels a little cruel to share these photos on such a cold and windy day. But this was just four days ago! I was wearing capri pants and I was too hot.

This little outing was arranged after a no-good-very-bad-day. Everyone who pays their own taxes in quarterly installments has a horror story or two to share. That day, we got one of ours.

But Peter is full of wise, good sense, and I am very optimistic. The horror faded quickly, and we remembered how crazy lucky we are. We have jobs; we have money in the bank. And we have a lake to visit on unseasonable warm afternoons in March.


  1. Amen to that! Can I ask a question (perhaps a naive one): why do you pay quarterly? Is there a benefit to paying quarterly or is it related to your job?

    1. I was an independent consultant at my last job, so you have to take out your taxes yourself! There's no reason to do it at a normal job :)

  2. Quarterly taxes sound four times as hard as regular taxes. Sorry, Room! But glad it turned out well and you had a nice picnic. One of the best things about marrying Neal was free taxes for life! (His dad's a CPA.) Just kidding. Sort of.
