We Need A Blogcation...

You know it's time for a blogcation when someTortie is up before somemommy.
Hey, Mommy. Don't you think it's time to get up and move your patooty outta my spot?
We're taking a staycation next week so in between snoopervising yardwork and other home improvement stuff, we're going to take a blogcation for a week or so too. We'll come back rested and ready for summer! 

Happy weekend!

Weekend Wrap Up

We hope you had a wonderful weekend! We had lazy kind of weekend so did a lot of cuddling...
I also taught Mommy a new trick. All I have to do is get on my tippy toes, stretch way up on the fireplace in the mancave until she runs over, picks me up and helps me climb all the way to the mantel...
At first she thought I only wanted to do this once. MOL! Was she ever wrong! I do it every time we go downstairs! The mantel isn't very big but I lay on it because the brick is nice and cool. She stays close by since she's a worry wart and thinks I might fall. She doesn't let me jump down by myself so often makes me come down before I'm ready. That just means we start the trick all over again. I can be very purrsistent. Just sayin.

Did you do anything fun this weekend?

Enjoy your Monday!

Finally Friday

It's finally Friday and the remodel is finally over...
Well, at least the noisy stranger is finally done. He finished yesterday afternoon. Who knew it'd take all week to do a tiny backsplash and install the faucet! As you can see, there are still missing items such as a mirror...
It'll be up later along with other things including the door. Yes, the noisy stranger forgot to put the door back on! Makes it easier for us kitties to go in but guests probably won't like it too much. Anyway, we're all glad it's finally over. 

Since we take weekends off, we want to be sure and wish the moms of kids with and without fur a Happy Mother's Day!
Sending extra special Mother's Day wishes to our Grandma in Vegas! She had surgery last Friday but is recovering well. Our Aunt Dolly is a good little nurse!

Do you have plans for the weekend?

We hope you enjoy your day!

Weekend Finds

We had a relaxing weekend napping at home in sunpuddles. Mommy had a relaxing weekend at her happy place on the beach...
She and Daddy had the beach all to themselves so she explored and found lots of interesting things such as this pattern in the sand...
And these heart shaped rocks...
Also a ladybug caught in the edge of the surf...
She thought this shell looked like Wilson from the movie Cast Away...
On the trail back up to the car, Daddy spotted this painted rock shoved in the cracks of the post it's now sitting on...
Further up Mommy found this Care Bear painted rock...
After she got home she thought she found seals...
It was just us waiting to find dinner.

How was your weekend?

Hope you find whatever makes you happy today!

Finally Friday

We're glad it's finally Friday! It's been a long week of working, soaking up sunpuddles and doing the initial inspections in the half bath...
The new light is up, the floor is in, the storage drawer is complete and the cherry wood vanity doors are upstairs soaking up sunlight to darken them to a richer tone to match the drawer front. I hereby declare it's ready for completion...
Especially since the backsplash tile and trim finally arrived yesterday...
If all goes as planned, the noisy stranger will be here Monday morning to finally finish. The total work in this remodel is probably just a week but circumstances caused it to drag on and on. It's kinda like how long it'd take Isabella to do it in between her 20 hour naps. Just sayin.

Do you have any plans for this weekend?

Hope you have a great day!

Weekend Wrap Up

After a sunny and warm week, we had a rainy, cool weekend which meant indoor chores to catch up on. Mommy had a pile of old t-shirts that she needed to cut up and send to our Grandma in Las Vegas to use in a quilt. Yesterday she finally did it and it required my help...
With occasional birdie watching of course...
And some breaks just because...
Hey Angel, you're a slacker...
Don't worry Mommy, I'm here to help you...
I can't work these though. I don't have thumbs...
Yeah, okay, this is exhausting. How about I just lay here and snoopervise?
We eventually got everything cut and will be sending them off to Grandma in Las Vegas soon. We can't wait to lay on the finished quilt! Thank you for making it for us, Grandma! 

We want to take this opportunity to pay tribute to one of our bestest kitty friends, JellyBean. She had to go to the rainbow bridge last Thursday. Our mommy had visited JB, her mom and five furblings in Texas so she knew firsthand how special JB was...
Our purrs and prayers are with JB's mom.

We hope you savor every moment of your Monday!

Weekend Wrap Up

The weekend flew by so fast we didn't even have movie night nor many naps! On Saturday, I snoopervised garden clean up - from inside of course...
Yesterday, Isabella snoopervised the floor installation in the half bath while holding down the box with the new sink and countertop...
In between all that, Mommy took care of the neighbor cats, Dez and Callie, until their mom got home. That's certainly not hard work...
Of course a beautiful spring weekend meant a trip to Mommy's happy place for a bit too...
They went to some sand dunes around a jetty and saw evidence of horses on the trail but didn't see any actual horses. Back at the parking lot they saw this...
After seeing that, Mommy sure wished she'd seen those horses! That organization will be one of the recipients of our shop proceeds soon!

Anyway, today the noisy stranger comes back to get 95% of the half bath remodel done. Hopefully. If he finishes what he's supposed to finish, the tile backsplash decision can be finalized and the tile ordered so the remodel can be completely finished next week. We hope. Tomorrow we go back to work but thankfully just part time. Yay! 

How was your weekend?

Happy Monday to you!

Finally Friday

We had a relaxing week off but Mommy had a pretty busy one. She hasn't sat down much this week but any time she did, I made sure to keep her down for awhile. I might have fell asleep a time or two but that just kept her down longer...
The rain stopped Wednesday and now our days are filled with sunshine and yes, more naps for Isabella...
Mommy and a friend went on their annual visit to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival in Woodburn, OR. They really enjoy seeing the thousands and thousands of tulips every year...
The countertop and sink are finally in so the half bath remodel will be almost finished on Monday. It can't be completely finished because Mommy changed her mind about the tile backsplash yesterday and it'll take a week or so for the new tile to come in. Hopefully that'll be the last piece of this long process. *paws crossed*

What have you been doing this week?

Hope you enjoy your weekend!

Weekend Wrap Up

We're well on our way to re-converting our Mommy from the accounting type of CPA to our type of CPA - Cat's Purrsonal Assistant! I helped her relax as well starting with movie night...
On Saturday she left us to go to an art class with a friend. They did something called gel plate printing. She doesn't really understand the purpose of it but she had fun rolling paint on the gel plate and transferring it to paper. Here are a few of her creations...
Notice how the tiger's eyes in the middle bottom print still show through. She was pretty impressed with that but don't tell her it was pure luck since she had absolutely nothing to do with that happening. Anyway, she had good time despite not knowing what was going on. 

Oh, I successfully got her up early enough Saturday to avoid starvation and when she yelled "SHUSH" to me on Sunday, she woke Daddy up so he fed us. We usually try to let him sleep but hey, whatever it takes!

How was your weekend?

Hope you have a great day!

Finally Friday

We're finally done with tax season! It's the last day I'll watch the world, and birdies, wake up outside this window at o'dark thirty...
Oh my Cod, I just realized breakfast is going to be later from now on!
Nah, that won't happen. I'll just do laps all over Mommy to wake her up. Nothing's going to change except we don't have to work so early nor so much. Much more time for naps!

Do you have any plans for the weekend?

Hope you enjoy your day!

Weekend Wrap Up

We had a rainy and windy weekend. There wasn't much to do besides nap since even the birdies weren't out and about...
It's going to rain more this week but we won't notice since we'll be working hard to finish up tax returns...
Paws crossed this will be our last week of tax season! It's been our busiest one in quite awhile so we're all ready for it to end. Not sure we want the early morning meals to end but it'll be nice to have all of Mommy's attention again!

How was your weekend?

Hope you enjoy some naps today!

Thank Cod It's Friday!

This last week of March was a doozy. There was no work done on our half bath after Mommy painted it last weekend. Supposedly it'll be done next week but we'll see. At least the faucet Mommy ordered arrived in a really cool box...
Our neighbor has a cat sitter staying with her kitties while she's away but he also had to go out of town for three days this week so Mommy took care of Dez and Callie.She felt bad she couldn't spend much time with them especially since Dez upped the cuteness each visit...
We're already 20 returns over what we prepared through the last day of tax season last year. That means we're extra exhausted. Thankfully spring has returned so we can relax in sunpuddles this weekend...
Monday is April and we're certainly ready. Just a couple more weeks until we can go back to part time for the rest of the year. It's a tough job being CPA cats but somekitties have to do it!

We hope you have a great weekend and a Happy Easter!

Weekend Wrap Up

We hope you had a good weekend! Ours was cold and quick. It snowed on Friday, Saturday was 38 degrees and rainy but that didn't stop somemommy from going to her happy place...
Instead of curling up in a blanket with us when they got home, she painted primer on the new wall in the half bath. Since the door is off and there's a big, enticing hole in the wall where a drawer will eventually be, she stuck a perfectly good Chewy box in it in case one of us got the idea to jump up in that hole...
She's a party pooper. Anyway, yesterday she slept late so our breakfast was late. Then she painted the half bath and Daddy worked again last night so none of us slept. Supposedly that is the absolute last time he has to work through the night and we all hope that's true. Today is already starting off better because it's the last week of March! Only three more weeks of tax season! Woo hoo! We're awesome CPA Cats but after nearly 300 tax returns, we're pretty tired and ready for it to be over. 

How did your weekend go?

Happy last week of March!
