Penny’s Tips Volume 41

Hi everyone! Look what I got from one of my fans.

My friend, Vicky of Eastside Cats recently visited the Denver Mint. She got me a shiny new, uncirculated penny and a blank one too.

 Sorry, they came out blurry. My photographer is not the best.

Thank you! That was so thoughtful of you. Now I need to go hide them from my Dad.

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

One more thing- I want to give a shout out to my folks. Today is the 30 year anniversary of their first date ( yes, they are old).

 

I’m Possible: Jumping Into Fear and Discovering a Life of Purpose

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

I just finished reading I’m Possible: Jumping into Fear and Discovering a Life of Purpose by Jeremy Cowart. I found it very inspirational.

*Disclosure: I received this book for free as part of The Book Look Bloggers book review program. I am not required to write a positive review, all opinions are my own.
I was not familiar with Jeremy Cowart, but I chose to review this book because i enjoy memoirs. I think everyone has a story to tell that can contribute to improving the world. Jeremy Cowart is a photographer that uses his God-given talents to help others. He is not a typical rags to riches story. In fact, he grew up in a loving and supportive home in Hendersonville, TN ( fun facts: Johnny Cash used to live there and Taylor Swift went to high school there).  His grades in school were not great, but his Dad always reminded him of the biblical quote, ” You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.”
Jeremy excelled at art despite his average grades. He was able to make a career with design, but was not happy in an office so he took a chance to start his own company. And later tires of that and moves on to bigger and better things. I like that he is willing to take that leap of faith so many of us only dream of doing- and it paid off. Along the way he met several people that mentored him along his path to being a successful artist.
He now uses his photography skills to help those in need. The book has a section displaying some of his collages and art which are all amazing. He has documented people in Africa. Haiti, and many other places after tragedies so they can tell their story. This has brought awareness to causes and helped raise funds for them.
I highly recommend this book to anyone that wants more out of life or is still trying to find their purpose. I think it would make an excellent graduation gift too. I love when people use their talents to improve the lives of others and that is exactly what he does. I also enjoyed the inspirational quotes and biblical references.
I enjoyed it so much that I want to share it with someone so if you want to enter for a chance to win ( sorry, I can only afford to ship in the US) just say so in the comment section of this post before Tuesday at 9PM ( EST) . Winner will be announced Wednesday.

I review for BookLook Bloggers

Sunday Selfies

Hi everyone! I am a day late for Sabi Saturday, but here is my entry. (Sabi Saturday is a hop where you show something old, repurposed or upcycled.

We have repurposed a lot of screen doors for use inside the house. This is one in the kitchen leading to the hallway. We had to come up  with a way to separate cats and allow heat and air to pass through the doors.

Joanie and Gremmie wanted to do the selfie for today.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

I am thankful that I got to meet Lola and Lexy’s mom, Dawn. She is very sweet and a lot of fun.

Sammy is thankful that it is corn season. ( Don’t worry, he only had 2 bites).

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:

This art show is a bit odd,
I guess you could call it mod.
I like this polar bear in a blizzard,
but the artist is no wizard.
If you want to visit one of the great galleries
Making sculptures out of litter and pee
now that takes creativity.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.  Sandee, #2 is for you.

1. I would love to be a personal assistant to ___________________________.

2. If I had a boat, I would name it ________________________.

3. I want to improve my _________.

4. Surprises are _________.
One more thing- Our prayers are with all affected by the storms in the central part of the US.

 

Penny’s Tips Volume 40

Hi everyone! I am still looking through pennies for some worth more than one cent.

Did you know that an 1856 Flying Eagle penny is worth $ 12,850 ? I think one has a better chance of winning the lottery than finding one though. There were only 2000 were made as a pattern coin as it wasn’t supposed to be distributed until 1857. Several of these were in circulation though.

Cat Vs Dog-The Pet Diaries 1

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday What are YOU Reading?

I was thrilled when Rosa Silva offered me a chance to review her latest book Cat VS Dog- The Pet Diaries 1. I enjoyed her other two books, you can read those reviews here and here.

*Disclaimer- I received a copy of Cat VS Dog in exchange for a fair review.All opinions are my own.

I am pleased to report that this book was just as enjoyable as Rosa’s other two. The illustrations are fantastic and really bring the diaries to life.

It is fun to read what Oliver, the cat thinks of Max, the new dog. At first, Oliver wants to get the dog into trouble, but Max’s sweet personality starts to wear him down. I don’t want to tell you everything as this is also part mystery story. I highly recommend it for any cat lover ( and/or dog lover too).

It is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle format.

Hi everyone! I am a day late for Sabi Saturday, but here is my entry. (Sabi Saturday is a hop where you show something old, repurposed or upcycled. I wish more bloggers would join this fun hop.)

I thought my Dad’s dog tags would be appropriate for this week’s Sabi Saturday. Sorry the photo is blurry.
