#FunFriday A Reality Show about Kittens?

Yes, you read that right! And now thanks to Icelandic broadcaster Nutiminn and the Icelandic Cat Protection Society, you can watch the kittens in their dollhouse-like habitat. The habitat has hidden cameras to record the kitten antics and they are, in a word, adorable.

To see a live feed of the kittens at play, click here to visit Nutiminn’s live feed.

Just in case they’re asleep, and boy do cats sleep a lot, here’s a compilation of the best of the kittens! Click here if you cannot see the Nutiminn kitten video below.

#ThrowbackThursday Our Disney Monorail Ride

My hubby, daughter and I are like the Three Musketeers and her awesome boyfriend is our new Fourth Musketeer! We always have lots of fun together and one of the places where we have fun is Disneyworld. In this picture, we asked our daughter to ham it up and make believe she’s afraid of the monorail. We thought she was pretty convincing. How about you?

#WriteWed At the Shore #2 DANCED ALL NIGHT

Sorry I wasn’t with you earlier this week, but I took the opportunity of a long weekend to plant my butt in the chair and do a marathon writing session on #2 in the AT THE SHORE contemporary romance series. This book is tentatively titled DANCED ALL NIGHT, but I’ve really been rethinking that title based on the themes that are emerging as I plow more and more into the book.

The hero and heroine of the story, uptight lawyer Connie Reyes, and laid-back surfer dude inventor Jon Pierce, are like oil and water. Dynamite and a match. Despite that, they are perfect together and it’s been really interesting so far showing how they came together a long ago summer (wow – another possible title concept) and where they both are now.

I love second chance at love stories like this one, especially when there is an unexpected surprise as well. I suspect that these two characters are going to have yet more surprises for me as I write their story.

Since this book happens at the same time as ONE SUMMER NIGHT (a true writing challenge), you’ll get to see more of Maggie and Owen from that story and also check out the hero and heroine for #3, unromantic wedding planner Emma Grant and sexy chef Carlo Texeira. It is a stand alone story, however. No worries on that one.

Anyway – if you’ve ever wondered what my winter writing place down the shore looks like, here it is! In the summer you’ll find me out on that little balcony amidst the flowers that I plant.

#ThrowbackThursday Levittown Drum & Bugle Corps

Moving to the suburbs was an experience and although there were some tough moments, there were that many more good memories of growing up in Levittown. One of them was discovering the Levittown Drum and Bugle Corps which met just a couple of blocks away at the local church. It was one of first experiments with playing music, but from there, my sister and I both went on to other instruments. My sister was an amazing violin and viola player while I took up the bassoon. Being involved in music groups provided us both with amazing opportunities.

This photo is of us with our parents as we proudly display the bugles we were learning to play!

#ManCandyMonday A Different Shade of Jamie Dornan

So I know lots of you have run out to see the latest installment of that story, but today I’m sharing a more intriguing side of Jamie Dornan – his role as serial killer Paul Spector in the BBC’s THE FALL.

I’m a little late in the game to see this crime drama. Season 3 just ended this past October and there are talks of a Season 4 in the far off future.

I did my equivalent of a binge watch, catching two or three shows at time when I could. It was really fascinating to see the police procedures in another country and how a female Detective Inspector (Gillian Anderson) deals with men in power, her own demons, and the reality of a serial killer who is highly intelligent, methodical, and scary. Handsome. The face of an angel with a soul filled with evil. Fascinating.

If you get a chance, check it out. It’s available on various streaming services.
