Another Hopping Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining three hops today, but first I would like to ask for purrs and prayers for our friend Astrid of Four-Legged Furballs. She had surgery on what was thought to be a benign tumor, but now needs more surgery because it is a malignancy. Her mom is very worried so please pray for her too.

First off is Joanie’s review:

I haz no time for review this week. Halloween only 2 weeks away and I needz costume.

Sammy and I thank Grammie for late birthday gifts. 

The book I am going to review ties in with my “Spark” for this week.

Einstein and the Rabbi: Searching for the Soul by Naomi Levy is an amazing book. The author was inspired by a letter that Einstein wrote to a man who had lost his son.She searches for the man and many others whose lives he had touched. Her search is only part of the book though, she also offers ways we can connect with our soul. One way is through meditation, she recommends just meditating on the word “husa”. I was not familiar with the term before reading this book. It means an artists love for his ( or her) creation even if it is flawed. Much like we are all flawed, but God still loves us. By meditating on this we will become more forgiving and soften our judgement of others and ourselves.

So my spark for the week is simply, husa.

I am joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays, Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? And Sparks by McGuffy’s Reader. Sparks is a new hop, this is week two. The goal is to make the world brighter by each posting a positive quote or photo.

1. Keep calm and ____________________.
2. _______________ disappoints me.
3.                           is my                            .

4. In retrospect,                                   .

My answers:

  1. Keep calm and hug your cat *

2. Nic Cage’s choice of movies to act in disappoints me. I was so excited to have a new DVD from the library last Saturday called Arsenal, but we only watched 10 minutes of it because it was so violent ( and I like mob movies so I am not squeamish).

3.Rescuing cats is my calling in life.

4.In retrospect, I should have majored in something other than Elementary Education in college like English /Writing.

I am also joining Feline Friday being hosted by Comedy Plus.

Three Hops in One

Hi everyone! We have three hops to join today. Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?, Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays and McGuffy’s Reader Sparks.

First off is Joanie’s weekly review.

Love with a Chance of Drowning by Torre DeRoche. I not drowning for anyone, I am glad my boyfriend, Simon is land lover like me.

Thank you Joanie. I actually loved this book. I am not sure why because I am not a fan of the ocean, I can’t even stand the smell. For some reason though this memoir pulled me right in. A 25 year old Australian girl spending a year in the USA meets a 30 year old man planning to embark on a journey around the world in his used yacht. When the time comes, they are still together and she joins him. It is quite an adventure with some humorous parts and some dangerous ones too.

I actually bought this at The Dollar Tree, the word memoir on the cover got me.Now that I have enjoyed it, I am going to give it away. If you want to be entered in the giveaway just say so in the comments. Books are heavy though so I can only afford to send it to someone in the USA, sorry.

My Spark for the week is: Kindness is free, sprinkle that stuff everywhere.I saw that quote on Pinterest with no author listed. Emmy made a little twist on it.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 74

Hi everyone! Prancie thanks everyone for the warm welcome you all gave her yesterday on her first official blog post.

Time for the Friendly Fill-Ins. Don’t forget to add your link at McGuffy’s Reader, you can also answer in the comment section. Thanks to all who participate.

1. October is the perfect time to ____________________________.
2. Halloween _________________________.
3. Every October, I                               .

4. My experience with the supernatural world is                                   .

My answers:

  1. October is the perfect time to have a wedding, I love Fall weddings. On October 24th, my husband and I will celebrate 25 years of wedded bliss.
  2. Halloween is tied with Christmas as my favorite holiday. Actually, I prefer the reason for Christmas, but I have a sickness for Halloween decorations.
  3. Every October, I torture my niece by putting a plastic spider in the shower. I did that for years when she lived with us and I still manage to sneak one in her shower since she has been married.
  4. My experience with the supernatural world is non-existent. I have read books on connecting with spirits, but I do not have that gift. I do believe some have it, including my friend’s daughter who has communicated with my Dad for me.

We are also joining Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.

Millie* is our official pumpkin inspector. These are my book pumpkins, still needing stems and bows.

*Millie wants to thank everyone for saying he is pretty the other day. He also wants you to know that he is a boy with a girl’s name. We named him Millie because he was born in the mill yard in town.

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! We are joining Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading and Comedy Plus’ Awww… Mondays.

Joanie has a review prepared for today.

Taming Your Gremlin by Rick Carson. Book tell me how to tame a gremlin, but not where I can get a pet one. Mumma just laughs and says if I get one not to feed it after midnight.

Me and Sammy had birfday on Saturday. We iz 12.

We had a pate cake And got a bag of Temptations 

Nothing from Grammie though.

Sammy wants to thank his friend Teddy for the nice card:

Thank you Joanie. I have two good books to recommend by the same author, Marianne Leone. She is an actress that played Christopher’s mother on The Sopranos. Her latest book is about the strained relationship she had with her mother , Ma Speaks Up: And A First- Generation Daughter Talks Back. In this book, she referred to her son that she found dead in his bed at the age of 17. She had written a book about him , Knowing Jesse: A Mother’s Story of Grief, Grace and Everyday Bliss.

Jesse suffered from severe cerebral palsy. Her book about him tells of all the struggles to get him a proper education. He was highly intelligent, but many couldn’t look past his disabilities to see that. The book includes many beautiful poems he had written.

I was reading this as I was watching Phoebe decline at a rapid pace. I was angry that God wasn’t going to give me more time with her, but reading this made me appreciate the 14 wonderful years I did have with her.

Tomorrow we have our Chewy review from September. Later in the week, one of the kitties will attempt to write. Phoebe chose Prancie as the new ruler, but I don’t know if she wants to write. We know that no kitty can replace Phoebe.

Emmy has a solemn look about her.
