It was a dark and stormy night. No this is not the start of a new novel, it was the weather last night in San Diego. It arrived a little earlier than the weatherman predicted.

I love a rainy night

The furry ones and I cozied up in bed and I opened the window just a teensy bit so I could hear the rain fall. It's so relaxing. We watched Brit Night (Keeping Up Appearances, As Time Goes By, etc.) on our local PBS station. These shows are as old as the hills and I've seen them over and over but I still find them fun and am a big fan. Patricia Routledge who portrayed Hyacinth is 81 this year.

Keeping Up Appearances

I loved the look of this bed which is sort of dressed like my own. It looks cozy and warm, ZZZZZZZ!

Have you noticed my latest blog, The Literary Gato? It features Kitty as The Literary Gato and here he is helping me select books to review.

I previously wrote book reviews for which you can still find but I have decided to forego theExaminer and start a new book blog. Here's a link to my latest book review of The Fixer Upper by Mary Kay Andrews.

Also featured on The Literary Gato are photos of Kitty's friends and fellow book lovers. Here are two of them...

and Kramer from The Victorian Parlor

If you think your literary gato would like to join the photo gallery let me know! I'd love to feature your furry companion.

Hope you all had a fun Sunday and are looking forward to a new week!


  1. Bonnie dearest,
    What a cozy evening and to spend it with these wonderful old British comedies sounds like my cup of tea! I used to watch these and laugh myself silly to sleep. There is somthing about British humor that really tickles me! Have a great week my dearest!


  2. I love to curl up and read with a cup of tea when it's raining! Thanks for mentioning Kramer-he loves all this celebraty attention not to mention getting to be included with other good looking kitties:).!



  3. Hi Bonnie,

    I am addicted to Keeping up Appearances. Ms Bucket has me in tears on a regular basis.
    The kitties are precious.
    We got the rain right after you did. that's o.k, we need it.

  6. HI Bonnie
    Sometimes Anita and I love to just stay in and do a movie marathon during and after dinner, followed by plenty of tea on those "indoor" days. Love the picture of Sadie the Scottie, and of course you sweet own Sadie. I will have to come and check your new book review blog.
