Hi everyone! I am such a dip that I forgot to post my Z for the A-Z challenge in Sunday’s post. Z is for Zeppelin. I couldn’t find a free pattern so I made it up as I went along.
And now for the fun part, I am giving everything away to 2 lucky winners. Each winner will get 11 toys and 2 hats.Just leave a comment saying which item I made was your favorite. Phoebe will announce the winners on Thursday.
Memoirs are my favorite genre so I read Insomniac City by Bill Hayes even though I was not familiar with his writing before reading this. I can’t even put into words how much I enjoyed this book. Mr. Hayes lost his partner in San Fransisco suddenly then he moves to NYC and finds love again with Oliver Sacks ( another author I was unfamiliar with, but will read now).
I really enjoyed his style of writing and how he chose his words. Here is one quote, ” I’ve come to believe that a good cry is like a car wash for the soul.” Another quote after describing some books falling over and making a sound ” …..that sound alone is the reason to have books. May books never disappear. ” I also enjoyed his love of NYC and all the positive encounters he has with strangers.
I feel bad that I haven’t read any cat books lately, I will soon though. I think I spotted a black and white cat last night so I put out food and something ate it, but hubby thinks it was a skunk. Time will smell, I mean tell.
