Emmy is posing with A Bump in the Road by Roby Sweet. I am sure most of you are familiar with her Miss. Cuddlywump’s Investigates series, but I am a little late to the party. I have been following her blog, The Cuddlywumps Cat Chronicles for a long time.
A Bump in the Road is the first in a series of five mysteries. I really enjoyed this book and didn’t want it to end so I am thrilled there are four more to read and Christmas is coming ( hint, hint Mom). Miss Cuddlywumps is a beautiful and very intelligent calico cat that is adopted by a 40-something year old single woman named Rory.
Miss Cuddlywumps happens to witness a murder in Rory’s front yard. She attempts to investigate it herself, but is caught every time she sneaks out. I am in love with Miss Cuddlywumps and enjoyed reading her efforts to help solve the murder.
And here is my Spark for the week. “A minute of thought is worth more than an hour of talk.” from the book , How Would Buddha Think by Barbara Ann Kipfer.
Hi everyone. Before we show our Halloween costumes, I have a Prancie update. She is improving and can walk pretty well, just a little unsteady. The vet did not think she had a stroke. She thinks it is vestibular and possibly from an ear infection. She had an antibiotic shot and has ear drops. Thank you all for the purrs and prayers.
First off, black cats don’t need costumes, they are perfect just as they are. And Polar Bear is impossible to dress so he decided to pose with a ghost.
The other eight went with an ocean theme.
Sammy as Popeye with Olive Oil and Sweet Pea ( actually, it is a sugar snap pea).
Emmy is a penguin
Penny is a crab ( she is mad that she couldn’t do her tips today).
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.
PS: Penny is starting a new monthly feature on Tuesday.
And tomorrow our friend Annie at McGuffy’s Reader is starting a new hop to help everyone start their week on a positive note. To join, post a quote or photo of something that will “spark” the positive.
