What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than with a basket full of Romance???

Candy and I are creating a marvelous goody basket for 
(502) 222-4216

We told the owners, Lilian and her daughter Becky, that we thought it a grand idea -- what better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than with romance.  It's not complete.  Some other treats will be added - a bottole of wine, some chocolates and some CDs.  Then it will go on display at the Cafe until Valentine's.

Some lucky person will get enough romance to last them a year!!

My Books included:

Riding the Thunder
The Invasion of Falgannon Isle
A Wolf in Wolf's Clothing
One Snowy Knight
A Restless Knight
In Her Bed
Cat O' Nine Tales

Candy's sister's books:

The Marsh Hawk
Renegade Riders
Blood Moon
The Brotherhood
The Ravening
The Privateer
Prisoner of the Flames
The Waterlord
Falcon's Bride
The Counterfeit Lady
The Ravencliff Bride
Rape of the Soul

HINT:  For online followers -- I am planning on doing something similar for you, too!

A dress to steal an author's heart!

"Something quite interesting...Storybook gown constructed entirely out of recycled and discarded children’s Golden Books. Designer Ryan Novelline created the bodice from the golden spines of these classic children’s books and sewed together the skirt from their illustrated pages..."

What a wonderful vision, beautifully executed!!!

Say hello to Loki

It's 5 below zero here, with windchill nearly minus 25.  I mean cold!!  I made a snap decision to adopt another stray cat and so glad I did.  The gentle boy has been coming around Candy's for the last year and a half, and she had been feeding him.  Since Candy couldn't care for him while she is in the back-brace, I have been going over daily and feeding him.  He quickly came up to me for pets and we bonded.  Since losing Algie, I thought perhaps I could move him over to my heated carport so he could be safe once I made better friends with him.  Thursday I woke from a horrible dream of him being out in the cold and I knew I needed to move him now.

I went over and he was just going up the hill in the snow.  I called to him, and he came back.  He saw so pitiful, looking down at the snow and crying he was cold.  I stuffed him in a cat carrier and was off to my house.  He cried, scared.  I assured him everything was okay and he immediately settled down.  He was scared in the carport, but I put him in Algie's cat cage and he settled down.  This is cage that is covered by -40 sleeping back, has another sleeping bag inside.  He can come and go.  Which is he quickly did.  He settled in quickly and really loved his new home.  He was very warm in Algie's down sleeping sack.

This morning I was concerned because of this 20 below windchill.  I was afraid the carport wouldn't be warm enough.  I was right.  When I went out at 5am he was fine.  When I checked again a 7 he was shivering.  The windchill was coming through the walls like they weren't there.  So, Loki came inside...lol.  

He is sleeping on the bed.  I put him in Boot's room, Boot's went to the exercise/pantry/laundry room.  He perfect pet, purrs and purrs.  He slept the afternoon on his back, sleeping with his feet in the air.

So the bad weather didn't get this one.  Loki already answers to his name.

I think I found a very special new friend.

I do believe he sighed mo dhachaigh a-chaoidh as I left the room.
