Greetings! It’s Sunday and we are still here! The Angels were definitely hard at work this week in accomplishing that miracle.
Our week was rough, but the weekend was good enough. Mommy spend hours upon hours trying to figure out all the know hows
of blogging again, and I’m not all that sure that she is much wiser 7 days later. But alas, she still tries and I do provide the necessary assistance and support by catching birds and releasing them in her bedroom. Luckily it’s now time for a quick coffee break with Kimberly over at her cozy corner of the blogosphere, Caffeinated Book Reviewer
to rant and rave about our past week. There we share the books acquired, what we are currently reading and watching and anything else you deem necessary to share regarding the last 7 days. You are most welcome to join us – just link up!
Adding to the litter
Except for obtaining some new skills regarding HTML codes and skimming Blogging 101
, we didn’t actual add anything this week. Mommy just received another lovely coloring book from one of her friends. Querkles Cats by Thomas Pavitte
I have to be honest, I was shocked to realize that she didn’t have this one yet. I mean really, just look at me. What do I look like?? A famous art work or a cat?
As with most Thomas’s that I know, this one is quite the clever chap. He knows how to make people who are completely useless at art, like my mommy ?, believe that they are one of the great masters (there are 3 other felines in this house. Really, what doesn’t she get? She will never be a master). Mommy can sit for hours coloring the querkles or tracing the spiroglyhics while listening to audio books. None of us are complaining. It usually results in a rather relaxed atmosphere where you do get the occasional extra helping of the yummy food from the small tin.
On the couch
Not that much TV this week. Or least, not that much that I remember stealing the couch from Mommy and Daddy. Daddy is watching a skop, skiet en donner
(roughly translating to kick, shoot and and hit) Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan
, while me and mommy rather knit. We did watch a very cute movie, Artemis Owl, last night. I tried to hide at first, you are aware that owls consider little white kittens as the perfect midnight snack, but luckily I just miss-read. It’s actually Artemis Fowl. Loved it!
Let it go
As explained last week, I need to do my name proud and every week I will make a suggestion of what you can just let go in the upcoming week. We all tend to carry a bit too much.
But this week, I am going to suggest that we rather hold on as tight as we possibly can. Let’s hold tight to the memory, but mostly to the books of Carlos Ruiz Zafon
who sadly passed away on Friday. As long as we read the books and tell of his marvelous stories, he will live on forever.
Thanks for the lovely books, Mr Zafon. I know they made my mommy very happy.
Seeing that Artemis Fowl and the loving memory of Mr Zafon’s amazing books are fresh on our minds, I would like to leave you today with the most beautiful and well known words of the Irish Blessing:
“May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face
The rain fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.”
Have a wonderful week and let us know what you were up to!
Lots of love,
