Happy Halloween you guys! Gosh, I’m proud of myself. I didn’t hide away at all over the frightening month of October. I stayed cool, calm and collected and only slipped away last night when Mommy and Daddy were watching Things Heard and Seen. Extra nibbles for me! How was your October month? November is a breath away and then we can all start thinking about Christmas and my Mommy needs to start planning how to keep me out of the Christmas tree.
How was your passed week? Ours were terribly busy as my Mommy had a fun Book Day at school on Friday and you know things like that don’t just happen by themselves! She asked the local Book Shop to come and set up shop at school and negotiated for some serious discounted prices. It was a marvelous success and everyone had loads of fun. The kids (and staff) could dress up as their favorite bookish characters and the creativity was amazing!
My Mommy received stacks of new books for the library and she should actually be going to school to go and put it on the system. Only problem is that she came home on Friday with the sniffles and been down and under for the last 2 days. I know I should actually cuddle with her until she feels better, but spring is finally here and I am enjoying the sunshine and warmer weather outside. She needs to sleep in any case.
Yes, she did buy new books for herself as well at the book sale, but we will share those next week. Her books are there in between the kiddies books and it will be a miracle if she does manage to get up and go to school today. I believe there is an ARC or two in her inbox as well. All will be well at the end of her cold.
Scratching the Blog Pole
Since we last joined The Sunday Post, we’ve managed 4 posts:
Book Review – Secrets and Showgirls. This was a lovely read and we hope we can read for History Quill Book Club soon again.
We had so much fun with Fraterfest 2021 and we couldn’t be more delighted to be the Fraterfest RAT Insta-Challenge Winner!! Whoo hoo! We have never won anything here on the blogosphere and the bragging rights are awesome.
We also did our first Top Ten Tuesday Post on the new template and my Mommy just can’t get over all the fun she’s having here on WordPress and with discovering CANVA. Yes, there are still lots to do, but it will all happen in good time. You can click on the image below if you’ve missed our Ten Pets you can get at Stephen King’s Pet Shop.
We also did our Wondrous Words Wednesday – Fright vs Freight. We need to figure out how to promote this biweekly meme a bit more. If you love words and come across new ones on a regular basis, why not join us for Wondrous Words Wednesday! It’s always lots of fun and my personal goal is to one day be the cat with the best vocabulary in the whole wide world.
On the couch
The problem with being sick, is finding something to read or watch that you really like. My Mommy is between two minds with all the books she’s reading at the moment. She has never read a Sarah J. Maas book, but the hype around this woman’s books are so great, that she decided to try one. She’s currently listening to A Court of Thorns and Roses and she quite likes the Beauty & The Beast vibe. Or is she mistaken here?
The fourth instalment of my favorite cats-in-fantasy series, Destiny Falls Mystery & Magic, will be released next weekend. So sick or not sick, my Mommy has to read this one so that I can meow and purr about it.
Our Book Club picks have been drawing the short end of the stick lately. We’ve had the the same books for the last two months. We’ve started with This must be the place by Maggie O’Farrell and I hope we will have this one done before the end of the week. After Witches, Spiders and Schemes of course.
We’ve started watching Locke & Key and both Mommy and Daddy are enjoying this series. Mommy says she just can’t figure out if she’s suppose to be scared or just intrigued. She’s really not feeling well.
That’s all from us today. I guess I will have to go and cuddle with my Mommy now if I want her to be able to get up and feed me later. We hope you will have a wonderful week ahead and enjoy your November!
