Penalty Box

This is where the kitten or dog go when they need a time out, now dubbed  The Penalty Box.

 We spent Wednesday putting together the grands playhouse.  As you can see, Captain approves.

What's Wrong With This Picture?

Can you see the incongruity in these two pictures? 
Yup, I've got my Christmas decos out and the roses are still blooming.  And the azaleas are trying to bloom too for goodness sake!

Another one of our blogger buds, Crystal Collier, (Did someone say cheese?) has a new book out.  Are our authors prolific are what?

Author: Crystal Collier
Publisher: Raybourne Publishing
Series: Maiden of Time, #3
Publication: November 1, 2016
Category: Young Adult (YA)
Genre: Paranormal Historical
Pages: 254

TAG LINE: Time is the enemy.
Log Line: Alexia races against her own clock, and the birth of her child, to stop the Soulless from existing.

In 1771, Alexia had everything: the man of her dreams, reconciliation with her father, even a child on the way. But she was never meant to stay. It broke her heart, but Alexia heeded destiny and traveled five hundred years back to stop the Soulless from becoming.

In the thirteenth century, the Holy Roman Church has ordered the Knights Templar to exterminate the Passionate, her bloodline. As Alexia fights this new threat—along with an unfathomable evil and her own heart—the Soulless genesis nears. But none of her hard-won battles may matter if she dies in childbirth before completing her mission.

Can Alexia escape her own clock?

Piper Morgan To The Rescue

I'm very pleased to have the talented and amazing--and our blogger bud--Stephanie Faris with us today.  Her book is on a subject near and dear to our hearts: animal rescue.

Piper Morgan to the Rescue
By Stephanie Faris


Piper helps some four-legged friends find the perfect home in the third book of the brand-new Piper Morgan series.

Piper is super excited to help out at Bark Street, a local animal shelter in town. Who wouldn’t want to be surrounded by adorable puppies and dogs all day? And when Piper sees Taffy, the cutest dog she has ever seen, Piper is determined to find a way to bring Taffy home. But it won’t be easy—especially when she finds out someone else wants to make Taffy a part of their family, too!


Stephanie Faris knew she wanted to be an author from a very young age. In fact, her mother often told her to stop reading so much and go outside and play with the other kids. After graduating from Middle Tennessee State University with a Bachelor of Science in broadcast journalism, she somehow found herself working in information technology. But she never stopped writing.

Stephanie is the Simon & Schuster author of 30 Days of No Gossip and 25 Roses, as well as the Piper Morgan series. When she isn’t crafting fiction, she writes for a variety of online websites on the topics of business, technology, and her favorite subject of all—fashion. She lives in Nashville with her husband, a sales executive.

Into Everything

As you can see, the kitten is still into everything, including the dishwasher.  A few nights ago I couldn't sleep so I got up and did some writing. About the time I was ready to go back to bed I heard a faint mewing. I went into the kitchen. No kitten.  I checked the pantry.  No kitten. I checked the bathroom.  Hmm, hear him, don't see him. Opened the linen closet.  Yup there he was. Since the HH and I went to bed at different times, it's unclear if he was in there for a few hours or half the night.

Look what I won from March House.  Barbara was kind enough to send this to me from the UK.
Thanks, Barbara!
