The books are our entry for The Book Date’s  It’s Monday! What Are You Reading ? As always, I am reading several books, but I wanted to give these 2 cookbooks a shout out because they were written by LouLou’s Mom.

Rome at Home and No Need to Knead are both cookbooks by Suzanne Dunaway. I have been following her kitty LouLou’s blog for over a year and once in a while she posts a great recipe so I figured it was about time to check out the cookbooks. I haven’t had a chance to make anything yet, but I will as soon as I get done with Phoebe’s crown. I am planning to make English muffins and a French baguette from No Need to Knead. I also want to make potato gnocchi recipe in Rome at Home. badge

And last, but not least, I am joining Create With Joy’s Inspire Me Monday Hop. This is a fun hop that includes craft projects. recipes and so much more.. I thought the button art would qualify. DSCF1488Inspire Me Monday

Phoebe already has 12 names collected for the sunglasses to travel. She is still taking names and will display the badge tomorrow. This is going to be fun. Now I must go finish Phoebe’s crown or I will never hear the end of it.

  2. Before company arrives, I MAKE SURE THE LITTER BOXES ARE SCOOPED, IF THERE WILL BE A LOT OF COMPANY, I LOCK THE CATS IN THE BEDROOMS WHERE THEY ARE LESS STRESSED.

I am also going to join the Friendship Friday Hop:Friendship FridayCreate with Joy

Another hop I have been wanting to join and finally remembered is: The Friday 56 is a fun hop, you turn to page 56 of a book you are reading  ( or 56% in a reader) and pick a line. I haven’t been reading as much this past month since my beloved Lucy has been gone. We had started to read My Street Cats Their Personalities and Social Behavior by Raphaella Bilski . Here’s a line from page 56 even though we only got to page 48: “One harsh winter day, we heard the fierce cries of a kitten.”

Friendship Friday at Create With Joy

Spooky and I want to recommend a book too. Usually Lucy is in charge of books, but Spooky is feeling better and he looks so much like the kitty on the cover:003

 The Good, the Bad and the Furry by Tom Cox is the third book about the author’s cats. I read the first one and loved it, I haven’t read the second one, but I plan to. This book finds the author recently divorced and adjusting to life with the cats he kept in the divorce ( his ex took the younger 2 that were bonded). Most of the book is humorous stories about life with multiple cats including strange cats entering through the cat door.
See you tomorrow for more hopping.
