Finally Friday

Tax season is finally over and we're off every Friday for the rest of the year! Yay! We spent the week enjoying much deserved relaxification. *yawn*...
Mommy has been doing things around the house that she's put off for months. She also went with a friend to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Fest...
The rain held off long enough for them to enjoy the 40 acres of tulips and seeing many different varieties...
Today is supposed to be our nicest day of the year so far with sunny skies and a high near 70. We'll be sure to soak up some sunpuddles before they give way to rain once again this weekend. 

Do you have any weekend plans?

Happy Friday to you!

Tortie Tuesday on Tax Day!

The rain has returned and our mommy is falling into her usual after tax season funk so I thought it was the perfect time to remind her of my wise advice from way back in 2012. Here's a rerun which she needs to hear again. Okay, maybe I'm hoping she makes another cake so we have frosting. A Tortie can dream! Anyway, hope you take my advice to heart too!
******************************
Yay it's Tortie Tuesday and it's also Tax Day! We had to help Mommy work an extra day this year since yesterday was the Emancipation holiday in Washington, DC so the whole country got an extra day to invest in their IRAs and to file their taxes today...
But now it's time to get back to normal around here. One of the things Mommy doesn't like about tax season is that so many things get put on hold because she's working so much. My wise Tortie advice is that life is too short to be put on hold! I even convinced Mommy that it's okay to take a cake decorating class she's always wanted to and she listened! Here's her first cake that she made last Thursday:
She said it was more stressful than a 6 hour tax return but she did have fun. We love the buttercream frosting and can't wait for the next 8 weeks of cakes!
Huh, what's that Mommy? Why are the next cakes going to Daddy's work? Can we at least have some frosting?

Anyway, today's lesson is: Life is too short, enjoy the frosting!
If there's something you've always wanted to do - do it!

Hope you have a very Happy Tortie Tuesday!

Weekend Wrap Up

We hope you had a great weekend! Ours was filled with sunpuddles, relaxation, a little beady goody making and of course movie night. I'm not sure what Daddy watched but here's some highlights of the show Mommy watched...

She said it was her favorite show ever! Of course she says that every time but by the squee-o-meter, this show was ranked pretty high! 

How was your weekend?

Happy next to the last day of tax season!

Fishin' Friday

We effectively wrapped up our tax season yesterday since all returns not done at this point will be extended by Tuesday's due date. With no tax returns to prepare, Mommy decided to go kitty fishing. As you can see by the smidgen of white floof in the background, somekitty wasn't biting...
Nope...
Okay, maybe a nibble...
Without much action on the desk, she decided to go bottom fishing and hooked a Tortie...
Amazingly, no sound was made nor was there any mention of fishing but Isabella woke up from her usually uninterruptible nap to come in and play. It's kinda like when she can tell that someone is eating cereal or ice cream in a bowl as opposed to something like soup or chili. Must be her Tortie superpower!

Do you have a superpower? 

Have a great weekend!
Happy Easter too!

Almost Over

Less than a week to go until the end of tax season and I am so ready. I'm beyond bored with being in the office every day. I'm tired of cat trees, scratchers and tissue paper. I even tire of having the window open quicker than usual...
Mommy does play with me every day and she'll follow me into another room for no particular reason other than I cry and want her to. Still, I can't wait until we spend more hours out of the office than in it.

If you're wondering what Isabella thinks of tax season, well, let's just say she's very well rested from sleeping through it!

Hope your day is a good one!

Weekend Wrap Up

We had a few sunpuddles this weekend. Our winter has been colder and more rainy than usual so we're looking forward to a spring filled with warmer temps, more sunpuddles and relaxification...
SomeTortie is not looking forward to is when the flannel sheets are put away until next winter...
One thing is for sure though, there may not be cats on the sheets but there'll be a cat in the sheets.

Is spring springing in your neck of the woods?

Happy last week of tax season!

Finally Friday

We're so glad it's Friday! After today we work just one more Friday for the rest of the year! Oh, and of course we only have one more week of tax season left! Speaking of which, we're winding down on our work so it's been much more relaxed the past few days...
It's nice to not have to work so hard and just be cute...
Having sunshine this week has been nice to. Life is good!

How's life in your neck of the woods?

Hope you have a great weekend!

Tortie Tuesday

My Tortie Tuesdays have been few and far between lately but I had to kick off April, as well as the last two weeks of tax season, with some Tortiliciousness...
We're in the home stretch and the end is in sight. Not sure if it's the end of Mommy's sanity or of the endless tax returns but either way, it's almost over. We're ready.

Hope all is well in your neck of the woods!
