Winter is Coming Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the Winter is Coming Giveaway Hop,  hosted by The Kids Did It and The Mommy Island.

First of all, the above may be the cutest hop graphic ever. But then, I love cats. I can’t imagine ours in the snow – although it certainly would make our Lucifer easy to find – if we had snow.

Winter mostly deals the Atlanta area a glancing blow – but it is coming. Even if local temperatures during this blog hop will reach up into the 60s a few times. But we do get enough winter that the trees lose their leaves – which fascinates the cats no end. Falling leaves make GREAT kitty television.

I do not miss the winters in two of our previous homes – Chicago and Anchorage. Both are equally miserable this time of year. They are also both terrific cities to live in, but their winters – recently arrived in Chicago and long arrived in Anchorage – are nothing to sneeze at unless you have the inevitable cold or flu. Then you’re sneezing a lot.

But it’s chilly enough here that we’ve brought out the cushy blanket for our bed – which has motivated all three cats to not only sleep with us, but to sleep ON the bed instead of UNDER the bed during the day. And we’re happy to make them happy!

Still, ’tis the season for wintry weather, holiday shopping and curling up with a good book and a cuddly fur-person or two. To help with your winter snuggles, I’m giving away your choice of either a $10 Amazon Gift Card or a $10 Book from the Book Depository. And all of the participants in this hop will be happy to help you further with your holiday presents and post-holiday recovery!
