My October Reading Wrap-Up

If September was about vacation, October was about getting back to work and dealing with house and health issues. Our attempt to adopt a pair of cats didn’t work out; unfortunately our older cat wasn’t up to the stress of dealing with newcomers, and our idea to give him some company wasn’t well-timed. We were…

My September Reading Wrap-Up

September was an exciting month, from our two weeks in Hawaii to our search for a pair of cats to join our family.  We’re going through a trial adoption right now, so until that’s official I won’t say more.  But I will share a few pics of our vacation (none of Mr.CG, though, because I…

I’ve also been thinking about ways to update my blog and I’m trying out a new book-tracking…
