I would like each picture to be smaller, but I don't remember how to make it so, and photobucket was not being cooperative. :( Any tips? I did go to the helpful thread, but came away saying . . . um, what?

As I mentioned, I'm not keeping track of my reading. I'm reading at about the same pace as before. I basically read nothing in December, as it was a happy, busy, but challenging month for me. Still, I typically read less in December. I have read a lot of urban fantasy and some odds and ends. I am also reading David Rosenfelt, and not to alarm anyone, but I'm not reading them in order. These days most of my books have been coming from the library e-book collection. With the Andy Carpenter books, I just read them willy nilly as I find them. It works fine.

Melissa Olson
Anne Bishop
Ilona Andrews

have been on my radar, and I have read their books as well. Of course Patricia Briggs Thanks to Mamie. These books I have read in order.

Speaking of "in order" this site can be helpful with that:

No, no. I will not click on any blue words tonight. Already feeling overloaded.

So I got an ER book today Who Wrote "The Night Before Christmas?" kinda late. I don't really care who wrote it, but was hoping this would come around Christmas and get me in a better holiday mood.
At least it's a thin book. I really wanted the other book I requested, but no. So, there you have it.

Interesting weekend coming up... good, I hope.

It'll be 3 years this Saturday since Sig came into our lives. He's starting to be willing to sit on my lap for a few minutes, especially in the rocking chair. But he's definitely not a lap cat. He's an adventurous one, as you can see.

Isn't it time for another Drew picture???!???

>63 tymfos: I can't believe it, Terri! Are you sure it's been 3 years? My Woolly was not cuddly or a lap cat for several years herself. I didn't think she ever would be. But eventually she realized how warm and comfy laps are - which led to my being lap-locked excessively, but I never minded it. Missing it now. I would say give Sig more time... after all, he is a busy boy!

Still reading David Rosenfelt but I already had an unread book by Patricia Briggs on my kindle to read next, when I read this :

Official Patricia Briggs
Yesterday at 3:34pm ยท
It is with a very heavy heart that I write of the passing of one of the finest men I have ever known. Mike Briggs passed away early this morning, very unexpectedly. We are all deeply in shock and grieving. Things on the web page and Facebook will likely be a bit neglected while we sort things out and make all the necessary arrangements. Please understand if we can't reply to messages or inquiries right away. If you would like to send Patty and her family a condolence card, our address is P.O. Box 5394, Benton City, WA, 99320. Mike was simply just an awesome and amazing man; we will miss him every day for the rest of our lives. The Purple Avenger will be doing his good works in heaven;I will strive to live up to the example and high standards that he set. -Ann

This makes me very sad. Mike was fun and he clearly loved Patty...It took my breath away to read this.

Hey all... Thank you so much for your ongoing kindness in visiting my neglected thread :)

Maybe I should mend my ways, and spend more time here than on fb. It can get nasty over there.

Anyway, Hi to Kimmy, Joanne, Joe, rd, paul, Cheri, Karen and Chelle. . . I hope all is well... and that life is being kind.....

I'll try to pop in again soon

Hi Kath! Nice to see you.

I have never posted on FB, but I've been a liker, a lurker, and an occasional replier. Even that has palled and I can't remember the last time I was over there. Possibly two weeks ago?

I hope you're doing well.

HA! At the end of the night two young teenagers strolled over to get a treat. My bowl had a few bags of chips and about 40 of those teeny little candy bites they sell these days. I dumped it all in their bags... they were so dumbfounded! LOL

Your litttles are so cute!

So, I am way behind putting my books into my library. I'm not sure I'll ever really catch up. And in other news, I can't find a book. Book slump in progress.. booo!

I added a new pic of Drew to my library. I lost my photobucket account, because I am not paying 400$ to host some pictures. I don't know how else to put them here.. any suggestions?

Anyway, my sweet girl is 11 months today.

>150 mckait: Kath, you can just upload them into your LT photo gallery as you've done, and then post from there. That's the way I do it. I haven't figured out how to do it from a tablet, but when I post from my computer, it works fine.

Once it's in your photo gallery on LT, copy the image address and then post with img src= and the image address, inside a set of the pointy brackets.

(photobucket charges $400 to host photos? Sheesh!)

Kath: You need to read this book!



Really!

BTW, the caption for the cover photo is "Life is more fun with a partner in crime."

Today we were channel surfing and came upon a program called Meow Manor on some channel I never heard of, UP TV. Three kittens, litter mates, in a house scaled to kitten size, and all their antics. Sig was fascinated -- he never paid attention to TV before, even when we watched the Kitten Bowl. He jumped up on the TV stand and tried to interact with the kittens. Maybe it's time to get him a friend?

Thanks Terri. It looks like I can tune in as of 12/16. We'll see if my kitties like it :)

Thank you for the book rec. I will hunt it down.

I just came back from Drew's birthday party...it was nice. They have good friends. Downside, on of the 6 little ones invited was afraid of dogs. So Lola and my daughters dogs Sloan and Steve had to be shut in rooms. Lola has never been shut in anyway since she was rescued. She barked for 3 hours. . . unless someone was taking a turn being in with her. I finally took a few of the other kids into the room and we hung out petting her, and in one boys case lying on top of her proclaiming his love! lol. Nice young man.

So good to see you I often wonder what you are up to and how life is treating you :)

It is that time of year again, between Solstice and Christmas, just after Hanukkah, when our thoughts turn to wishing each other well in whatever language or image is meaningful to the recipient. So, whether I wish you Happy Solstice or Merry Christmas, know that what I really wish you, and for you, is this:
