Hello Again! Early Autumn Update

102

Hope everyone had a great summer! 

I’m having a wonderful early autumn, currently visiting Vancouver Island and will probably be moving here soon too.

It was a very hectic summer for us so the “chill time” we are now enjoying is much needed and appreciated.

I hope to be back to blogging on a more regular basis in the next few weeks. But for now, sending you all best wishes and thanks for your continued support of my blogs/books…it is most appreciated!

Taaa…daaa…Mr. Cheddar’s Meowsings! :-)

Mr. Cheddar is now a published feline! 😉

 

Mr. Cheddar’s Meowsings!

Mr. Cheddar and I are very happy to announce the publication of his first ebook:

Mr. Cheddar’s Meowsings!

Kibbles of Wisdom from a Wise and Witty Feline

Here’s the description of what this furrrry new ebook is all about, from the Amazon site:

Mr. Cheddar serves up his own unique and flavorful blend of feline tummy-tickling humor and puuuurfound kibbles of wisdom throughout the pages of: 
                                                                                                                   
Mr. Cheddar’s Meowsings! Kibbles of Wisdom from a Wise and Witty Feline
                                                                                                                       
Color photographs of the ruggedly handsome Mr. Cheddar are featured throughout this book, purrrfectly complimenting his wise and witty words.                                                                                                              
 
Catty Topics of Note Include:                                                                                                   
  • advice for the lovelorn (applicable for felines and humans)
  • dealing with difficult neighbors (only humans, of course)
  • kibble quality control (never, NEVER let it slide)
  • disciplining humans (they can be taught, with time and patience)
  • litter box humor (snort…)
  • napping etiquette (there is a right way to do everything)
  • grooming suggestions (gilding the furry) 
  • aging disgracefully and loving it (heh, if you’ve still got it…)
and munch, munch more…
                                                                                                                         
Mr. Cheddar is currently furrrrriously pawing more litterary masterpieces, with minor assistance from his Meowmie: Geraldine. 
                                                                          
He scoffs at the need for any type of human help, but with such big, manly paws, typing can be a challenge at times, for the otherwise incredibly gifted Mr. C. 
                                                                                                              
And for Mr.Cheddar: furrrrbulous, feline words of wisdom and witticisms happily flow like a never-ending bag of premium kibble!
****************
And speaking of Amazon,
Mr. C and I were thrilled to note his new ebook on  three, Top 100 paid lists at Amazon.ca, this morning. We only added it to the Amazon sites, late yesterday.  

Available at all Amazon sites.

Happy Reading and Week from:

Me and (published feline) Mr. C!!! 😉

10 Under $20: Holiday Gift Suggestion List 2015 :-)

The
first of
December
brought thoughts
of Christmas magic.
The Day, so soon to arrive.
Our expectations ran high.
Through snow days and blizzards.
Making a list and checking it twice.
Santa’s letter printed and ready to mail.
Christmas baking: heady, wonderful aromas.
Pageants at school, with costumes of many colors.
The tall lush evergreen, centerpiece of the season.
We decorated so carefully; each bough lovingly adorned.
With some old, some new, every one used and none forgotten.
The long days of dark December. Finally, homework complete.
Sitting in the darkened living room; time alone to drift away.
Marvelling at the masterpiece of lights and shining ornaments.
Gazing far beyond to the bliss to follow. Hurry, hurry, hurry!
Christmas eve: midnight mass and carolling.Treats aplenty!
Then the long awaited, special treasures.
The secrets of shining boxes and ribbons.
Finally revealed and always worth the wait.
Off to sleep, to dream of a perfect snowy Christmas Day.
Now content, to still remember these childhood memories.
On
this
November day.

This is a Christmas-themed poem that I wrote, several years ago.
These lines still conjure up some wonderful holiday memories for me, from long ago. I hope you enjoy it too. 😉
