Morning Meanderings…Winners and Cat-Dogs

Happy Saturday everyone!  Did you know this is my favorite day of the week?  Saturdays are the one day each week I can linger a bit more in the morning without rushing out the door.  If I can, I keep them fairly open, non commitment filled… I like the options of choosing what I do with my day, at least once a week 🙂

I hope you had a chance to stop by yesterday to my annual Blogiversary Party.  It is always fun that it lands shortly after BEA so I can give away a few books and swag.  If you have a few minutes, it is well worth just reading the imaginative comments that make me smile, and occasionally laugh out loud.  (I challenge everyone to let me know how they arrive at the party and what virtual food item/or gift they brought with.  Lets just say it is going to take me weeks to get the crumbs out of my blog side bars and pretty sure there was a little cake on the header this morning too I had to clean up.  😛

SO now…. for my winners!  Using, here are the winners of the packages:

Package 1 goes to:  Kaye (comment #61)


Package #2 goes to Julie at Read Handed


Package #3:  A Book Dragon’s Lair


Package #4:  Lydia from The Lost Entwife


The $10 Amazon Gift Card:  Joan (comment #45)


Congratulations everyone!  As soon as I have your addresses I will be able to mail out – email me at



Ok, now that the business portion of this morning post is done I do have a picture – yes, one picture (so unlike me) for Alyce’s Saturday Snapshots.  This one I took the other day while sitting outside on the deck with a friend and my to dogs…. we were sitting in the tall chairs at the tall table and Bailey, decided to climb up on the deck table… while that was shocking enough, Sam… climbed from the deck, to the table, to the chair, leaped up on the deck railing and sat there…. like a cat.  😯

Be sure to stop by Saturday Snapshots at At Home with Books to see what other people are taking pictures of!

One last little “housekeeping” item… I am running a blog survey this week (see upper right side bar) and I would love it if you could take a minute or two to give me some feedback.  Next week after it is complete I will post the results and offer up a $10 gift card to one of the participants in this survey.  😀

Enjoy your Saturday, I am about to write a guest post for a friend and a post for later today…. then… I think I will be outside – it is gorgeous out today and I want to take full advantage!

  1. Sorry I didn’t get to stop by yesterday! Happy Anniversary!!! I’m so busy prepping for tonight’s shindig that I’m just sitting for the first time today/yesterday.

    I had to make time to get a haircut… since important people will be here tonight (first impressions are everything) HA!

    Have a great day Sheila.

  2. Thanks for the giveaway, Sheila. Reading all the answers as to how to get to your party was a total blast. So fun! I’m thinking Ryan should write a book. His comment was awesome! Congrats to the other winners.

  3. Congratulations to the winners!!
    Love the photo! My dog likes sitting on the back of the couch so so she can see out the window. Funny thing is, the cat never gets up there, she loves sitting at the sliding glass door in our dining room or the one in our entertainment room, and the dog never does.

    1. Louise I go all out for the Blogiversary… if it wasnt for all the great book conversation (comments) I get through this blog adventure… I would have given it up a long time ago… I love “meeting” other book lovers and getting to know what they like to read.

  4. They are so funny acting like cats! 🙂 I miss having a small dog in the house. I grew up with one, but my husband isn’t a fan of small dogs, so we’ve never had one. Hopefully someday I’ll be able to talk him into it.

Hmmmm... what do you think?
