The Sunday Post #54

Greetings you guys! How has life been treating you lately? Who agrees that this year can start the countdown to reset any day now? My Mommy was wondering if we should join this year’s Ho-Ho-Ho Readathon that kicks off on Thursday. She finally made her mind up and yes, we will be joining in the Christmas cheer. |We even have a short list of books we hope to read this season.  It’s time for the Christmas Spirit. Who cares if it’s way to early. Who else is joining? South Africa has made international headlines once again, this time on the literacy front (for a welcome change). Lets start with the good news. And the sad news for the whole world, but especially for South Africans today, is the passing of Wilbur Smith. My Mommy wasn’t the biggest fan of his work, but Daddy has read a few of his books and loved it. That is an amazing accomplishment. I know a lot of South Africans who don’t know books and authors very well, but here, in his home country, Wilbur Smith is a household name.  May he rest in peace. I know we’ve been absent a lot lately, but the […]

Weekend Book Friends #24

Weekend Book Friends #24

Greetings Humans! First order of business today – it’s my adoption anniversary! Yea to me! And to Mommy for coming to my rescue from that horrible orphanage where we could never, ever get some more. No matter how nicely we asked. Oh, I’m such a Drama Queen. The pet shelter was actually lovely, but not a place any kitten would want to stay forever. My Mommy is at home today and I hope she will spend some time here on the blog, we’ve been a bit absent the last two weeks. The weather outside is however begging her to just take her book and go read. I am not going to complain about that. Snuggle time! My Mommy is very eager to start reading the following book later today: If you know my Mommy and read our blog regularly, you will know that this book might as well have been written for her. We are going to have a wonderful weekend! Let’s see who we can share it with: For our first stop, we will pay a visit to Gilion over at Rose City Reader to share our Book Beginnings.  Every Friday you can link up and share the first sentence of […]

Wondrous Words Wednesday – Asinine

Wondrous Words Wednesday – Asinine

I can’t believe a fortnight has passed and it’s time for Wondrous Wednesday again. I am so sorry that we have been absent from the blogosphere so much over the last 14 days. This time of the year is just crazy. Especially if your school-year runs from January to December. There simply isn’t enough hours in the day and too many things on your plate, leads to stupid mistakes and foolish actions. Wondrous Words Wednesday is a biweekly meme hosted by yours truly. The concept is fairly easy – all you need to do, is share any new (or new to you) words you came across this week and share them with us. You are also welcome to share words you simply want to show off to us. For more on Wondrous Words Wednesday, you can click here. Stupid and foolish actions, brings us to our Wondrous Word for today: My Mommy is currently reading This must be the place by Maggie O’Farrell. It’s what my Mommy calls an onion book. So many layers that needs to be peeled. It’s a Book Club book and she’s had it for the last two months and she’s still not done! It’s just one […]

Monday Bloopers #4 – A Spark of Light

Monday Bloopers #4 – A Spark of Light

Greetings Humans! It’s the first Monday of November and this month, we are going to be better. We haven’t done a Monday Bloopers post for the last 2 months and I am terribly upset about this. I’ve inspired my Mommy to upgrade to WordPress, I’ve slept sat through hours of post tweaking and blog design and she still doesn’t do the one post that is all about me. Monday Bloopers is a fun monthly meme to show off your pet’s lesser photogenic side.  I guess the idea is to post a photo that didn’t work as well as the shooter anticipated it would. *Camera shooter. It’s hosted by Melissa @ Melissa’s Mocha’s, Mysteries & Meows and if you are in the mood for some feline love, you really should go and visit her. Pet Photo Fails is also a link-up meme, so don’t forget to share your link and to visit the other photo fails. As I’ve explained to you on more than one occasion in the past, the only problem with this fun meme, is that it’s basically impossible to get a bad photo of me. It’s quite similar to capturing a ghost – not possible. Talking about ghosts, did you guys enjoy your Halloween?  […]
