Kitty Cats

June 19, 2008

 

This is one of our cats.  Max is big and all black with long hair.  He is so funny! Dave says he is just dumb, and I just say it’s his personality.  He has this wide-eyed look that makes him appear to be surprised all the time.  He has a sauntering lah-dee-dah kind of walk that makes me laugh.  His tail flicks back and forth like some uncoordinated dancer with a boa. 

 Jasper is our playful tiger.  (I’ll post a picture of him later.  I haven’t taken any since the computer crashed.)  He loves everyone and likes to have lots of attention.  He even loves Dave who keeps denying that he likes cats, but secretly he really likes Jasper.  Jasper is just good-natured and doesn’t usually get that cat-moody, don’t pet me attitude. 

We enjoy our cats so much I don’t know what we would do without them as part of our family.

Loving Goodreads!

I am loving the website www.goodreads.com for keeping track of books I have read, want to read and am currently reading!  It’s great for seeing what your friends and others are reading and what they have rated the books they’ve read.

I have discovered reading again lately.  After taking quite a bit of time off of reading seriously it’s good to finally get back to reading some books I have totally enjoyed and immersed myself in.  I find myself lately reading more than one book at a time.  I think it’s because I just have to read what I’m in the mood for.  Sometimes it’s a fantasy novel (my favorite) and sometimes a self help book or spiritual book.  I have to have something different for the mood.  Along with the books I have a serious magazine addition.  It’s really bad!  My husband has to steer me away from the magazine racks whenever we go into a store.  Mostly I read home decorating and scrapbooking magazines.  Then we won’t even get into all the other stuff I read:  newspapers, blogs, stuff for work, gardening website, and tons of email newsletters.  Wow!  I never realized how much reading I get done until I listed it all.
