Tortie Tuesday

Some days Tortie Tuesday should be wordless because really, my beauty speaks volumes...
It's a tough job being so Tortilicious but somekitty has to do it!

Hope you enjoy your Tortie Tuesday!

Weekend Harvest

Grandma from Vegas got me some kitty grass when she was here but Mommy had to grow it. I didn't get it until this weekend when it was really, really tall...
It smelled good though...
It would've been a whole lot easier to eat if it wasn't so tall and skinny...
Oh well, despite it being lanky cat grass I'm enjoying it very much...
By the way, I have one less hairball now too. Just sayin.

Do you enjoy cat grass?

Hope you had a great weekend!

Finally Friday

We're glad it's Friday but more than that, we're glad it's September 15th. It may sound like a normal day but for us CPA cats it's the tax deadline for business returns so we spent a lot of time in the office this week...
It was grueling let me tell ya. After we finished working yesterday, somemommy got out her newest stash of beads...
Beading relaxes her but since she had zero mojo there wasn't much relaxing happening. Well, except for one of us...
Eventually she came up with these earrings...
Thank Cod they were Tortie approved...
One more tax deadline next month and the 2016 tax season will finally come to an end. We're not even going to think about the 2017 tax season just around the corner. Nope. Not gonna. Uh uh. *sigh*

We plan on doing a whole lot of nothing this weekend, what are your plans?

Happy weekend!

Weekend Wrap Up

We don't normally notice weekends but last week was so long we (aka somemommy) really needed a nice weekend. Of course we made sure she did! Isabella didn't even sleep through movie night, instead she stared at mommy...
Whenever Mommy went outside, I kept tabs on her...
It all worked and she had a really good weekend! She and a friend got supplies for a new crafty project they're starting soon. She also got the nerve up to make bread and butter pickles for the first time ever...
Now before you think she's all domesticated or something, Daddy had to chop up the cucumbers and onions for her but she did stir the ingredients and mix them together. She says they turned out pretty good for her first try. What I thought was good was relaxing with her after all that hard work...
What's also good is that our friends in Florida are all safe after the hurricane. The Hemingway kitties in Key West are also safe. We're so relieved but we're continuing to purr for all those effected as they clean up the aftermath of such a devastating storm. 

How was your weekend?

Hope you have a great start to the week!

Any Takers?

Our Grandma from Vegas went home yesterday so now I have a tummy in need of scritching...
The line forms to the left if you're interested. I'll be waiting!

We're hoping to get back to our normal schedule soon. Between celebrations, visitors and now tax deadlines we're trying to keep up without cutting into nap time too much. A Tortie needs her beauty sleep!

Did you ever have one of those weeks where the weekend can't come fast enough? 

Happy almost Friday to you!

Long Weekend Wrap Up

We've enjoyed some time off while our Grandma from Vegas is here. We've been spoiled morning and night but in between Mommy and Daddy have taken her to the coast. They saw sea lions on the Newport Bayfront...
And saw whales at Rocky Creek State Scenic Viewpoint...
But the most interesting sight they saw was traveling kitties!
These kitties were with their dad in an old motor home just hanging out at the door and obviously the Tortie ruled the roost...
Just as she should. Just saying.

Grandma from Vegas is here until tomorrow morning so we're hoping to get lots of spoiling in today.

How was your weekend?

Enjoy your Tortie Tuesday!

Whatever You Do...

Do not look at the camera...
We practice camera avoidance regularly. Do you?

Thanks for all the birthday wishes for our mommy! She had a wonderful birthday at the coast. We didn't get any birthday frosting but we did get ice cream so it was a wonderful day for us too!

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Birthday Celebration!

Today is our Mommy's squizillion and ninth birthday! That's cause for a celebration that includes frosting and I sure don't want to miss it...
Of course I'm missing eight naps but who's counting, it'll be worth it!

We hope you enjoy something worth waiting for today!

Happy Birthday to our Mommy!
Isabella and Angel

Thankful Thursday

The noisy strangers finished the deck yesterday. It took longer than expected so we're very thankful to finally have peace and quiet restored during our hectic work days in the office...
We're also thankful that after we get done with work today, we're off until September 5th! We have an exciting week coming up with a birthday (frosting!) and a visit from our Grandma from Las Vegas! We have a lot to look forward to!

Do you have anything exciting planned as we near the unofficial end of summer?

Hope you have lots to be thankful for today!

Tortie Tuesday

Did you get to see the solar eclipse yesterday? If so, I hear it was amazing. If not, yeah, I didn't either. I was taking my five hour morning nap... 
When Mommy came in babbling something about the total solar eclipse happening at 10:17am...
Seriously Mommy? You woke me up for an eclipse? 
Clearly she didn't realize it meant it was going to get dark and what do we do when it gets dark? That's right. Sleep. *sigh* Anyway, I knew my little sisfur was watching her watch the eclipse because, well, she doesn't let Mommy out of her sight...
See, it got dark! I guess the stars came out too. I wouldn't know. I was sleeping.

How was your view of the eclipse?

Hope you enjoy a nap this Tortie Tuesday!

Finally Friday

Boy are we glad it's Friday! We're looking forward to a weekend with no noisy strangers. Why just a weekend? Well, progress has been made on the deck...
But they won't finish today so they'll return Monday afternoon after this little event that's happening called the Total solar eclipse. We're in the path of totality so hundreds of thousands of peeps are coming to our neck of the woods to watch it. As a result, the locals are staying off the roads Monday morning. Our Daddy said that yesterday the lines into the gas stations were so long cars were in the street trying to turn in! Don't worry, we have enough foods and treats so we'll be okay! We also have our ISO approved eclipse shades...
We're ready for everything! Especially the weekend!

Are you in the path of the solar eclipse?

Happy weekend to you!

Tortie Tuesday

While I was sleeping someone stole our deck...
I didn't want to get closer to the door for fear someone would steal me too. Torties are valuable you know. Just sayin.

Enjoy your Tortie Tuesday!

And So It Begins...

Noisy strangers showed up an hour ago to, well, make noise removing the boards on our deck...
Isabella doesn't know yet since she's power napping. She'll find out when she comes down for lunch. Paws crossed for new boards and silence by Friday.

Did you have a good weekend?

Hope your Monday is quiet!

August 8th

Today is our mommy and daddy's 29th anniversary! Yesterday we were left alone all day while they went to Mommy's happy place - the coast...
It was foggy and 59 degrees over there (90 here at home) but they had fun and even spotted some whales...
It's obvious from their wedding date that Mommy's lucky number is 8 and being a romantic she loves hearts so we're not surprised she found a heart shaped rock on the beach...
Even though Isabella was less than impressed, Mommy hopes to make it into some jewelry...
I have a better idea for it. Let's just say that little sucker moves really fast when batted across a smooth surface...
We're not sure what they're doing today but we think a celebration should include frosting or at least whipped cream. Seriously. 

Happy World Cat Day to our kitty (and honorary kitty) friends!
Happy Anniversary to our Mommy and Daddy!
Isabella and Angel

Weekend Wrap Up

Hope you had a great weekend! I got to do whatever I wanted this weekend because Mommy let me be the birthday girl for four whole days! Yeah, okay, so I get to do whatever I want every day but this time there was a reason. I also got really awesome scritches from my daddy...
He seriously gives the bestest scritches ever...
And tummy rubs too!
Oh yeah, this is heaven on a cat tree...
We hear that there are kitties that don't like scritches and tummy rubs but both of us love them. Do you?

What did you do this weekend?

Happy Monday!

Happy Birthday, Angel!

Today is my 11th birthday! It's hard to believe I'm 11 already when it seems like yesterday I was a cute little baby...
I'm still cute today although I've certainly grown into my beautiful furs...
I'm celebrating my birthday with everything I love including my scratchers, treats, my family and hopefully whipped cream! I'm a very lucky birthday girl!

I hope you enjoy something you love in honor of my birthday!

Finally Friday

It's the last Friday in July! Tax season will be here before we know it! I think summer is going so fast because we're working so hard. As soon as we're done working on taxes, I have to snoopervise the making of beady goodies...
Somemommy pointed out that I was paying more attention to the birdies than beadies. As if. Anyway, if that's what she thinks, I'll snoopervise from a much closer vantage point...
Of course she complained that I was too close. Okay, how about I snoopervise from here?
We finally got the beady goodies made. They would've been done much quicker if she hadn't stopped to complain so much but whatever. After I did my snoopervising duties, Isabella had the easy job of modeling...
It took just a few shots to get that one. It helps that she moves at a snail's pace so her poses last an eternity. She really is a Tortie slug. 

We're hoping to relax this last weekend in July. August is a busy month for us with birthdays, an anniversary, noisy strangers on the deck, many thousands of people coming to our town to view the solar eclipse and even a visitor coming to our house the end of the month. Our sporadic posting will be even more so but we'll pop in from time to time. 

Do you have plans for the weekend? Any big events happening for you in August?

Hope you have a wonderful end to July!

Monday, July 24, 2017

Oh Yeah, It's Monday...

You know it's Monday when you start the day with a wet willy from your big sisfur...
I still love her though...
We're experiencing the hots here with temps around 90. Closed windows and naps are on the agenda today. What's happening in your neck of the woods?

Hope your day is off to a great start!
