Hello. It's me, Clyde Whiskers Sawyer, filling in for my human 'cause she's...well...tuckered. It's been a reallllllly busy week for her. She said she was too tired to type, so I said that was okay--I could put my paws to the keyboard and tell everybody what's been going on around here.
First of all, we now have an official library in the B&B. My human was so happy when the shelves she ordered way back in April finally arrived. It didn't take her very long to get her books put away, and her hubby was happy that the last of the boxes could go to the recycling center instead of sitting all stacked up in the corner of the room.
Kinda pretty, isn't it? But we kitties aren't allowed to climb on it. My human has made that very clear. So in a way, I miss the boxes. Nobody said, "No, no, Clyde--get down!" when I jumped on the boxes. *sigh*
Then, right after the shelves got here, some PEOPLE got here! People my human calls "critique partners." They're actually pretty nice. They're good petters, and the one named Miss Connie gives good hugs. Miss Connie even brought us kitties some new mousies. I think that was pretty nice of her.
When all those critique partners showed up, another room got changed. My human's office. Those ladies pushed everything to the middle of the room, then they all pulled old wallpaper off the walls, and then my human and Miss Connie dipped these brushes and stuff into pans of color and put the color on the walls. (Did you know if you sniff that colored stuff it makes you sneeze? It does, so be careful, but it makes the walls looks very nice.)
My human likes purrrple. A lot. In case you didn't already know that. So anyway, the walls are purrrple now. Dark purrrple and soft purrrple. And I have to say--even though I don't know a lot about decorating (I am just a cat, you know)--it looks pretty nice. If I could operate my human's camera I'd share a picture. But that'll have to wait until another week.
My human wanted everybody to know she appreciated all the visits to her website last week during the Scavenger Hunt. She said 95 people dropped by and said hello. That's a lot of people! But only one could win a book, so I'm supposed to tell ANNA BRASWELL she will get a copy of my human's newest book, When Hope Blossoms, as soon as she has them, which shouldn't be much longer. Anna, please email my human (kim at kimvogelsawyer dot com) and tell her your mailing address so she knows where to send the book. And just so's you know, I sat on my human's lap a lot while she wrote the story and made sure she included some cats. So be sure and look for the kitties when you read it.
Well, I guess that's about it. While you're reading this, my human and all those critique partners are in Ponca City, Oklahoma (wherever that is), visiting something called the Marland Mansion (whatever that is). She'll probably tell you about that later, too. And while she's gone, I'm gonna take a nice long nap on the sofa in the library. It's a pretty great place to relax. Even for cats.
As my human would say, God bless you mousely...er, muchly as you journey with Him!
