It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww…..Mondays blog hop and Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? dscf2697

Prancie is showing you the latest edition of I Could Pee on This Too by Francesco Marciuliano. I have been reading these cute poems to Phoebe to give her inspiration for her poetry. These are just as good if not better than the original.

I have also recently discovered books by Laurie Notaro, apparently my head has been buried in a litter box because she has been writing for well over a decade. I started with An Idiot Girl’s Christmas from 2005 and also read It Looked Different on the Model: Epic Tales of Impending Shame and Infamy ( 2011).She writes about her life and she is hilarious. One tale was about her hubby accusing her of eating chocolate in bed because he kept finding chocolate star prints on his pillow. Eventually they discovered it was where their elderly cat had been sitting.


Today’s word for the #JHC is gate, but I decided to go with mice. dscf2669  Brody is posing with my cutouts I put on the steps. To give it a spookier look, I stop cleaning the steps in August so there is lots of dust. Just kidding, although I clearly need to use a swiffer on them.

Today is our 24th anniversary:

wedding My little niece was the flower girl and now her daughter is almost one year old.



  1. Happy Anniversary to you,Miss Ellen and Hubby!

    Those mice are cute,and the dust makes them more authentic like they really belong there, MOL!

    We nearly choked when we read about the chocolate stars, OMC!! Hilarious, Eeuuwwww!

  2. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!!!! Your wedding photo is gorgeous – you all look spectacular. Hope you have a wonderful day of celebration. No doubt the kitties will pitch in to give you a suitably QUIET day to enjoy. Love the cutouts – and the dust is a nice touch (haha).

    Love, Pam (and Sam)

  3. First of all, a very happy anniversary to you and your husband, Ellen! And these books sound like such fun to read. Also, I absolutely love your mouse decorations on the stairs. So cute, especially with Brody modeling with them! And I know what it’s like to have dust and hair all over. It seems like hairballs have accumulated again the very second after I put the vacuum back in the closet. Purrs, and a beautiful day to you all!

    1. Thank you 🙂 It is hard to keep a fur free home with so many pets, actually it is impossible. 🙂

  4. At present, I’m reading Going Underground, which is a dark, futuristic…. it isn’t a book I would have chosen, but I was asked to give it an honest review…. despite the ‘background’ I’m enjoying it…. and I’m also very grateful that I didn’t need to endure the horrors that the Nazis inflicted on people.
    I’m also working on final edits for Mr-YEOW!, which I hope to have finished by December.

  5. Happy anniversary! I didn’t know there was a second I Could Pee on This! I have the first one and love it.

  10. Happy anniversary! What a great stairway idea, too. Laurie Notaro sounds funny. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  11. Happy Anniversary! What a beautiful wedding party. 🙂 I love the mouse cutouts on your stairs. Those are really fun. It sounds like you found a really fun book too! I love kitty poems. I will have to check that one out. “Manna” used to do spoofs of different songs – particularly Christmas songs. 🙂

  12. Happy Anniversary! I’ve been meaning to check out the first “I could pee on this” book … now sounds like the perfect time to read both. I’m also going to have to look up Laurie Notaro.

  13. Happy Anniversary Ellen! Now that it’s official…my wedding anniversary will be on the 21st…just a few days before yours 🙂 Our photographer took pics of the ” I do” you sent me as I placed them on the soles of my shoes. I will send you pics when I get them back 🙂

    Sophie and the critters in the cottage xo

  14. Awww, our Dad loves the Pee On books! Our Mom is reading some Richard Matheson books (required reading list). She likes some of his stories, we like her reading them to us. Happy Anniversary!

  15. I Could Pee on This is one of our favorite books–we think we have like three copies around here somewhere, ha ha ha! We love your flowergirl pictures. I wish I could have followed her and gobbled up the petals though–shame to let them go to waste!
