I'm pleased to feature Linda Faulkner as my Thursday guest this week. She has an interesting twist on "write what you know," so I hope you join us. I'll have the coffee on (and hot water for the tea drinkers).
Giving Away a Copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul
I attended a reading and signing of one of the contributors to the new Chicken Soup for the Soul: Shaping a New You on Saturday. I've been enjoying my copy of the book so much that I bought an extra copy to give away here. Just leave a comment on today's or tomorrow's blog post to be eligible. Be sure you have a way for me to reach you in your profile or in the body of the comment. I'll close off entries tomorrow night at midnight, and will announce the winner on Saturday.
Katie Kat Takes Over
When I use my desktop computer, Katie likes to sit in my lap. Unfortunately, my chair is a little high, so my lap slopes and Katie tends to gradually slide toward the floor.
I found a solution yesterday. I moved the pillow that I kept behind my back to my lap and braced it against the keyboard tray. Katie slept on the pillow while I wrote this blog post. I'm not sure who's the pet and who's the mistress here.
