Of Cats and Books

The babies are all back together. Two of them are thrilled to be on top of each other. One bolted not long after I shot the picture. TB isn't a fan of kitty piles.

Did ya miss me yesterday?

Oy. Last night … okay, all day yesterday … when I should have been doing anything else, I was, instead, worrying about my little girl kitty, Grey.

About 12:30 in the afternoon, the sound of a cat fight brought me up out of my concentration. I expected it to be TB and one of the kittens – there can be screaming, some dashing to hide and then it’s over. I turned to yell at TB to stop it and he came flying out from under the covers at the sound. At the same time, Earl came running at me from the front porch.

I added two plus two quickly and ran out to the front porch and realized Grey had to be outside, She’d managed to get out – I’m still working out how. The day progressed – not well. I had little to no ability to concentrate, so I just gave up.

After twelve hours of Diane = basket case, I was a wreck. But, I also knew that I’d been through this before with other cats. They’ve always come home – I’ve never trusted that it will happen. It always does. But my heart tends to take control in times like this.

At 12:30 in the morning, Earl leaped to the ground and ran to a cat tree ledge by the back window. He peered through the slats of my fan and stood up so he could look over it. TB heard whatever Earl did, because he was close by – ears on alert. I ran for the front door, opened it and there was Grey coming in the back screen door. The seige was over and I was so exhausted, I just went to bed after we’d all said hello and smelled the new scents she brought back.

What a day … what a lost day.

We’ve not completely made up for it yet today, but there’s still plenty of time. I got some sleep, you know.

This evening I went digging back through my Kindle library. What a riot. I got my first Kindle in July of 2008. And from then on, it’s fun to see how my need for information transforms with what I’m doing. The funny thing is, some of my first books are on writing, vocabulary and words.

I’m pulling all of my research-oriented, history, writing, words, etc., etc., books to a new Kindle I got. My goodness, they (Kindles) went on sale and I’ve been thinking about doing this for a long time. I want two more Kindles someday. A Fire – just for my hundreds of cookbooks and one more Kindle for all of my Christian history and religious books. Someday … someday. Let’s just hope I don’t have to start a set of bookshelves for my Kindles! (Oh Diane, you crack me up.)

So I’m curious … for those of you who are near your computers and can get to your “Manage Your Content” page, tell me when you got your first Kindle and what one of the first books was that you purchased there?

The first two books I purchased were “New Moon” and “Eclipse” of the Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyer. After that I went absolutely crazy with books when I discovered the immense library available to me on Amazon. I was like a kid in a candy store. I started buying series books like a wild woman.
