A special thank you to the Reid-Thompson Public Library in Humboldt, Saskatchewan. We all had a lovely time reading to the children and look forward to doing it again. Last but not least, a thank you to the Humboldt and District Kinettes for sponsoring me for the TD Canada Trust Summer Reading Program.
Hi! I know I was supposed to post pictures of the two foster cats that we took in for the holiday. Between last minute Christmas shopping and a death in the family, I just never got around to it. Here are the pictures of the two cuties available for adoption at the Humboldt & District SPCA.
One Freckles website update:
We have also removed Erika-Elizabeth's Blog page. She is getting older and would prefer to not have it on any longer to keep some of her privacy. You can still follow "Craft Time with Erika-Elizabeth."
I am in the works of writing a new children's book entitled, "Through the Eyes of a Bunny." It will be less cartoon like then the other stories as it is meant to be seen with understanding and reality. The book will follow a rabbit's life through being bought at a pet shop to ending up in a shelter, to it's final home. I am hoping to not only teach children and parents about rabbits so that they think before buying but also teach them about the right way to care for them. Sadly, rabbits are often a discarded pet. I hope the book will be out for the New Year however I will be working out some of the details once the book is complete. I hope to have some news to share with you before the year is out.
Freckles' book should be coming out within a month or two. We've had to span them out due to Anastasia's schedule and my family moving back into our home. We plan to try and keep the books roughly 4 months apart as before. It will all depend on how long some of these are.
I am still planning on having a second book out early this year (at least I plan to try). It will definitely be out before the end of this year. Please keep checking his blog or Facebook page for updates.
A late Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all those who celebrate!
School & Library Readings
These are the areas we will be visiting. Please note a few more locations have been added. These visits are free as are our Skype visits. If however you are outside of these locations, a small fee to cover expenses can be arranged to visit your location.
There is a new page on the website, "Story Reading and Fundraising." These files, locations and more can be found on that page. I am still working on the fundraising and other stuff but it will be available there as well. Event Readings has partially been added as well.
It's that time of year again. School is starting and so much more! Sorry I haven't blogged updates here in a bit but we've been rushing to get back into our house. Some things have been moving far faster then we planned. We are hoping for everything to slow down after next month and for us all to be settled in. In the meantime, here are some updates now & some to expect over the next month or so for all 3 websites: Now:
I have finally managed to fix those pictures on Freckles' website.

As many know, Erika-Elizabeth is my daughter. She does the crafts for the books & video records them for children to do with her. She also does book reviews for me in her spare time (book reviews are on hold until we can get her computer down here). She has finally posted a second post and will continue to do so as the week progresses. Erika-Elizabeth has also co-authored Freckles' book # 6. Find her blog on Freckles' website & her review's on mine.
