Stay Dry FriYAY

 We had to be extra clever today to avoid all the rains and luck prevailed when we were able to squeeze in a little fun time outside with the Doodle Doggies.  They were very happy for their playtime!
Ernie is SO ready!!!
This is a great walk mom!
Time for Zoomies
Who will get back to home base first?
We say it's a tie
But let's go for best two out of three!!!!
It's a close one!
Ruby Lou says, "Ernie - you won this round!"
Let's do it again!!!!!
Dog Heaven!
Happy FriYAY!

One of the Certainties

Today I devoted my morning to one of the certainties of life.....taxes. 
I attended a 4 hour long webinar presented by the 
Ohio Department of Taxation on Ohio Sales and Use Tax 
to make sure I was up to date on all the tax laws. 
The program began at 8:30am
so I had to be sure I was ready for the long event
Thankfully Hazel had my hair accessories ready!
I mean everybody who attends a tax seminar needs rainbows and lollipops!
Bella and Olaf also attended.  
I question their commitment to taking tax notes but the company was PURRfect!
Happy Tax Fun Thursday!

What To Do When it Rains

Another rainy day is upon us here at Yesteryear Acres- but the rare part is that I am actually caught up with (most of) my work AND Hazel is still snoozing away for a long afternoon nap. WHAT AM I TO DO WITH MY HANDS?!?!
Thankfully Ernie McDoodle came to my aid!
"First you have to make sure NO one is paying attention"
"Then you sneak onto the couch with a good quilt"

"Have a big yawn"
"And then settle in for a good snuggly nap"
Okay Ernie! Do you have room for one more?
"Always for you Mom!"
Ahhh... So that's what you do when it rains!
Happy Snuggly Rainy Wednesday from Ernie McDoodle!

 We interrupted our normal Caturday Saturday post for the beautiful Aurora Borealis so today we have Tuesday Meowsday!  Our Devon Rex kittens are becoming more and more adventurous.  They are a bundle of snuggly cuddles and lots of laughter.
Hazel loves taking care of the kittens
Bringing them unopened cans of kitten food is the best kind of fun
Kittens! Come get your food!
If I wait here, she will bring TWO cans!!!!
With a little help from Always Amelia - food magically appears on a spoon!
Here you go kitten
Happy MEOWsday!
