Rain and Taxes - Just Go Together

 Today's dreary all day rain was definitely a signal that it was time.  Time to start working on taxes.  Business taxes are due in 2 weeks so putting off the inevitable was no longer possible.  And so with the rain falling, I pulled out my calculator, pens, highlighters, computer, receipts and more receipts and dug in. Sigh.  Rainy day and taxes - they just go together.
Thank you for the moral support Ernie. 
You know just how I feel!

Another Quilt Done! Y Acres Studio

We love quilting customer quilts on our Longarm Machine.  It is so fun to see the great piecing and sewing that others have done and we love being able to finish their hard works of art!
This quilt was huge!
So much work went into creating this King Size Quilt
Ready to be picked up this week!
Time to cut more batting
and start loading another quilt for the Longarm!
Happy Saturday from Y Acres Studio!

Spring in Our Step

 This morning it was -3* when we woke up but by this afternoon it was in the upper 20's!!!! All the Doggies were so happy to have a nice long stroll in the beautiful warm sunshine! It was a perfect way to spend a winter afternoon!
Lovely groomed paths for walking
The sun feels great!
We all had a little SPRING in our step!

we cut more batting and started loading another customer quilt

Actually, Snow Shoveling Isn't That Hard

We have had our fair share of shoveling snow lately.  Every morning we wake up to a fresh new snowfall that subsequently needs shoveled away. It feels like an endless cycle! Today I took on the task of snow shoveling.  
I believe I have mastered this winter hardship. 
First, Sit Upon The Snow Shovel
See? Snow shoveling is not that hard!

Crunchy Snow

 The arctic chill has created quite the crunchy winter wonderland. I think every step should now count as double the steps!!! The Doodle Doggies however have mastered the snow leaps required to get from 
Point A to Point B.  They are having a blast!
Scavenger Hunt Time!
Crunchy Snow Fetch!
Doodles are just the best at fun Winter Games!

They Said It Would Stop

The latest winter storm called for an additional 8-12 inches of snow and then the storm was supposed to be over last night around 3am. 
Why is it still snowing?
One more month until Spring
Happy Snow Day (again!)

Happy Valentine's Day Cookies

 Everyone knows that Valentine's Day means chocolate. Some people might mistakenly believe that valentines are for people in love but that is merely a subset of the true intention of the holiday. The real meaning behind "Will you be my Valentine" is please bring me chocolate. 
In honor of February 14th
Holidays need to be celebrated with the utmost respect
and dedication
Will you be my Valentine?
Yes.  Yes I will!
