Felines and Fill-ins Friday Week 3

Happy Friday, friends! I am once again participating in three blog hops. By the way, does anyone know of any movie-related blog hops? If so, please do tell! I watch a lot of movies, so I might be interested in joining one of those.

Let's get hopping with today's installments.

Question: What are some of your favorite books?

My response: Well, from the description of my blog you can probably conclude that my favorite genre is cozy mysteries. To read more about how this came to be, click on "Why Cozies" on the right sidebar of my blog. 

Some of my favorite cozy mysteries are Farm to Trouble, by Amanda Flower, Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder, by Joanne Fluke, A Sprinkling of Murder, by Daryl wood Gerber (which I will review in September), and No Parm No Foul, by Linda Reilly. 

My favorite non-cozy mystery book is Pride and Prejudice and my favorite non-cozy author is Nicholas Sparks. I have not read any of his books in a while, but of the ones I read, The Notebook is probably my favorite.

My favorite non-fiction books are probably the two I'm currently reading - Can't Hurt Me (the clean version), by David Goggins and Happy Mind, Happy Life: 10 Simple Ways to Feel Great Every Day, by Rangan Chatterjee. The latter has a much calmer tone, but they are both very powerful and thought-provoking books. I didn't choose to read them at the same time on purpose (it just so happened one of them that was on hold became available at the same time I borrowed the other one), but they balance each other out nicely.

FRIENDLY FILL-INS, hosted by Four-Legged Furballs and 15 and Meowing

1. I'd like to peek into Tinker Bell's closet. I think she would have quite a stash of found things, with plans to repurpose them. I may even find in her closet some of my own things that I lost.🤔

2. I secretly enjoy eating in front of the television. (I guess this is no longer a secret.)

3. There's no use crying over pieces of egg shells that fall into the bowl when I crack them (although I certainly do feel like crying when this happens).

4. If I don't get 7-8 hours sleep, I don't function well the next day.

FELINE FRIDAY, hosted by Comedy Plus

Fiona (pictured below) wants to know if you have time to chat.

I am so proud of the cat this kitten is becoming. It used to be that I could not have her in my lap without her biting me. And it was her choice to stay in my lap! They were just little love nips and I know she was just being playful, but it was a bad habit that she needed to stop. 

Nowadays, at times I can tell she's tempted to bite, but she never follows through anymore. It's kind of funny to see the look on her face and the thought process she goes through when she ultimately decides not to bite.

Now, she's not completely obedient, though. She is now into grabbing my jewelry (I wear a medical bracelet, so I have to wear at least one piece of jewelry every day) and buttons on my clothes. She also loves to play with (a.k.a. attack) my hair. She attacks my hair from the front when she's on my lap and from the back when she gets up behind me on the top of the couch. I think my hair reminds her of Bell's tail, which she also loves to play with (much to Bell's dismay).


  1. Happy Feline Friday to you too 👍

  2. Those cozies sound fun. I need to read more of those!

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Love cozy reads too.

    Love your fill-ins. A fun thing to do each week.

    Aw on Fiona. What a cutie pie and often when they are kitties they do things that they quit doing when they get older.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. ♥

    1. Thank you, Sandee! True about kittens when they become cats. I am trying to savor these wild and crazy days while they're still very young. :-)

  4. Cozy mysteries are my favorite too. Great fill ins and what a beauty Fiona is. What a sweetheart! Have a great weekend!

  5. Such a beautiful kitty. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. My hubby and I always eat in front of the tv. I like cozy mysteries, my favorites are Patricia Fry's klepto cat series.
    Have a nice weekend.

    1. I will have to look into that series. Thank you for the idea! :-)

  6. Cozy mysteries are so fun to read. Have a great week.

  7. Fiona is going to be a gorgeous lady and I'm glad she's a mischievous kitten!

  8. I really want to start reading cozy mysteries - they always have such great titles, and make great Hallmark Mysteries movies, but I've been burned with the ones I've tried so far :( I'll check out some of your favourites, hopefully I'll do better with them!

    1. Cassie, one cool thing about cozies is that there are so many themes there's probably something out there for everyone. :-)
