I have way too much fun with my favorite online photo editor. This particular pose was exciting because we've never seen Fiona inside the little cubby in the kitty tree prior to this week. Lucky me, I had a camera handy.
I added the checkered overlay at pixlr.com. Love their pixlr-o-matic!
And the update:
Remember when this used to be a really active blog? Hopefully, that will resume, soon. There was actually one day this week that I unpacked books in our home library for several hours and then I walked through the kitchen, glanced at the computer (which is currently in the breakfast nook, of all places) and thought, "Oh, yeah. I haven't even looked to see if there are any blog comments since yesterday!" Nor had I bothered to write anything for at least 3 days, at that point, but I went through a pretty intense bout of migraine/insomnia that basically shot 2 weeks of my life and left them metaphorically bleeding on the pavement.
Hopefully, things will pick up on Monday. We have guests visiting, this weekend. Woot! I'm so happy to have room for guests to sleep, eat and sit!
Kiddo arrived fairly early and we met up with his girlfriend at Mississippi College to check out the college's book sale. Ohmygosh. It was wonderful! I bought about a dozen books, one of which was by an author I've never found *anywhere*, although I've been looking (Elizabeth Taylor). Here is my goat checking out the spoils:
Purchases in no particular order:
The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill but Came Down a Mountain by Christopher Monger
A View of the Harbour by Elizabeth Taylor (!!!)
Kennedy by Theodore C. Sorensen (my dad went to school with "Ted")
The Eye in the Door by Pat Barker (second in the Regeneration series, very exciting find)
The Faithful Gardener by Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Snowstorms in a Hot Climate by Sarah Dunant
Immoveable Feast by John Baxter
The Short Stories of Saki (H. H. Munro)
The Four Seasons: Japanese Haiku
1943: The Victory That Never Was by John Grigg
Guadalcanal Diary by Richard Tregaskis
Bomber Country by Daniel Swift
I've gotten a few other books in the past 2 weeks and I'll list them in either a Monday Malarkey or Tuesday Twaddle post.
The Longest Way Home by Andrew McCarthy (travel memoir - excellent, so far), The Art Forger by B. A. Shapiro (fiction - just started and I'm enjoying it very much). Occasionally, I'll dip in and read another chapter of Michael Palin's Hemingway Adventure. I've finished watching the program on YouTube and only occasionally remember I'm reading it. It's the kind of book you can just pick up when you feel like it, so no big deal that I'm so forgetful.
Wishing everyone a fabulous weekend!
