Monday Malarkey

I'm not sure what Fiona thinks about the whole "stuff on cats" concept but she looked even more perplexed when I took the book away (maybe she missed the warmth?) than when I propped it against her.

Recent arrivals:

  • The Summer of Me by Angela Benson - from William Morrow for review

Yep, just one book arrived, this week! Shocking.

Books finished since last Malarkey:

  • Close Encounters of the Furred Kind by Tom Cox
  • Nimona by Noelle Stevenson (actually read this in electronic form and decided I really like reading graphic novels that way)

Currently reading:

  • Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert
  • Father's Day by Simon Van Booy 
Enjoying both. I checked out Big Magic from the library mostly because I'm curious about it but feared it wouldn't be anything great. I'm finding it inspiring, though.

Last week's posts:

In other news:

The cats have been doing a lot of sweet Eskimo kissing and very little fighting - confirmation, I think, that we're back to normal, around here. We do have a couple of outdoor neighbor kitties who consider our yard part of their territory but Huzzybuns and I have made an extra effort to drive them away if we see them because we're pretty sure they were the source of the friction between the kitties.

I'm working on purging books and other stuff, at the moment. Might be time to reread the Marie Kondo book, although it's going well without. We shall see.

  1. Love the picture. I'm happy the kitties are getting along again. I've never read a Elizabeth Gilbert book. One day.

    1. Elizabeth Gilbert is an interesting person. She said Eat Pray Love was on the bestseller list for 3 years. Wow. Love it or hate it, the book is worth talking about. Definitely loving Big Magic. I haven't read anything else by her and I had mixed feelings about Eat Pray Love but I think I have one of her novels on a shelf, somewhere.

  2. Casey is basically my only animal understanding enough to handle anything leaning against her... My other animals think I am crazy. lol

    1. My cats have never minded having things propped on their backs - the other kitties, too. I remember putting cut-outs of states on Miss Spooky's back to show where she'd traveled. She was a well-traveled cat. LOL
