Feline Friday: The Sorry I Vanished Version

Sorry I've been scarce lately... Between the multiple days that got eaten by the "replace the desktop" reboot, and working on THE BABA YAGA'S SISTER (Baba book 2), and teaching my online writing class, and trying to get the yard into some kind of shape and the garden in..well, I think you see my point. Time? What time?

Speaking of gardens, I've been thinking of adding a Garden Tuesday, or something, with pictures of the garden and yard (it doesn't sound as good as Feline Friday, but it isn't my fault there's no day of the week that starts with G). Would this be boring to y'all or is it something you'd enjoy?

I have a treat coming up soon...a cover reveal for the next Llewellyn book. Wait until you see this one--it's gorgeous! (Yes, there is a black cat. Magic insisted.) The picture was done by one of Llewellyn's fabulous artists based on an old postcard. Very cool. As soon as I'm given permission to share it, I'll be sending it out in the newsletter (you can sign up on my website if you want to get it) and then a day after that, I'll probably post it here. *bounce bounce bounce*

Now, with no further ado, the feline stars of this week's Feline Friday!

Every once in a while, I actually manage to get four of the five cats in one shot. You'll notice that Mystic is off to the left, studiously ignoring little Samhain, who seems quite happy about that. No, he's not floating in mid-air (despite his name, he is decidedly un-magical); he's perched on top of a cat tower that has a comfy catnip pillow on top.

On a different day. Magic is curled up on the futon,Minerva is on the cat tower, and the two boys are sharing the couch. You can't see her, but off to the right, Samhain is perched on the back of my red recliner, waiting for me to stop taking pictures of cats and get back to the writing. My living room isn't anything special, really, but isn't the morning light wonderful?

Here is a shot of Magic and Samhain sitting by the desk. Notice something missing?
(Here's a hint...see that bunch of wires, including the bright blue one? That's where the desktop normally sits. On that day, there was only the cable modem and my network router, waiting in lonely splendor for the new computer. Clearly, the cats had figured out I was going to be needing either the desk or the chair that day.)

I hope your summer is going well, and that the sun is shining through your windows with glee. (At the moment, it is raining here--but that's okay. The garden needs it.)

So--question of the day: Garden pics, writing progress updates, or both?

Happy Friday from me and the Furball Gang!

  1. You could call it Tilling Tuesday.

    1. Clever! Tilling Tuesday :-) Of course, I have raised beds, so I don't actually till. But still, clever.

      How about Wilderness Wednesday, since my yard usually needs serious hacking back?

  2. I'd love a garden column on your blog! I always love to see what other gardeners come up with.

    Also, Tilling Tuesday is brilliant. :)

    1. Er, fourth the Tilling Tuesday.

      Opened the page several hours ago and got distracted, didn't refresh before commenting. Go me.

  5. You could always also do a Weeding Wednesday if you don't like the Tilling option. :)

  6. LOL. Weeding Wednesday would certainly be more accurate :-)

  7. I'm new to gardening, so Weeding Wednesday would be awesome!

  8. I follow your posts no matter the subject, and anything to do with growing things is good. Love the cat pictures. If your garden is a wilderness, maybe Whacky Wednesday is appropriate. Sorry, couldn't resist. I will be happy with whatever you call it.
