Olivia 😸 has been on the prowl this morning! She is always assessing her environment to find hidden catnip toys (her favourite is Yeowww catnip Purr!-muda Triangle – she is very happy with it).
Another favourite of hers this summer is her cooling mat which she loves to lounge on in her office. Though, she has little to no interest in her hammock. We’ve tried placing a familiar blanket her grandmother made for her on top which helps a bit. But, alas, the cat hammock is still an unknown situation in the household!
The weather outside has been a mixture of rain/thunderstorms and clear, sunny weather. The rain has been very much welcome, though, as the last few summers have been terribly hot and dry. It looks as though today is the perfect day to get a few plants for our garden – look for a garden update next week!
We are still working our way through Radium Girls, Wildseed Witch, and Surviving the City. Alas … we have not completed any books this week! However, we did host reading sprints on our booktube channel yesterday which were a ton of fun; thus, we’ve made a fair bit of progress on Wildseed Witch and hope to finish it today!
This week was all about setting up our new blog! I transferred from Blogger to WordPress.com simply because I wanted to easily use various plugins, I like the community aspect and various other features, and finally I wanted to learn how to use a new-to-me platform.
One minor hiccup when changing domain hosting platforms … What I did not expect was how long it would take for my DNS to propagate – basically meaning that I was unable to access my site for more than a day 😅
But we are still here!
And my cat Olivia and I are SO happy to continue blogging so we can share our thoughts about books and check out everyone’s posts. Thank you for being here!
