    Thanks for the hosting – wishing you an awesome 2015.

  3. Gina says:

    Happy New Year! Thank you for the link-ups!
    I gave my blog a “facelift” for the new year. 🙂

      Dear Gina,

      Happy New Year to you – your blog looks awesome!
      That is one of my goals for the upcoming year!
      First, however, I need a new computer – my old one DIED right before Christmas!
      (Do you know how challenging it is to blog without a computer? lol!)

      • Gina says:

        Thank you for the compliment! 😀
        I cannot even begin to imagine blogging without a computer. It’s challenging, even with a computer!

        I know! I’m convinced God decided that was the only way I was going to take a much needed break!
        I’m hoping that life will be back to normal soon!
        (If your computer DOES break – at least the Christmas holidays is the best time for it to happen!)

    Thanks for hosting and hope you’re ready for The Poisonwood Bible Readalong. I posted the discussion “schedule” today but stop by anytime to discuss. Hope you enjoy it. Happy New Year and wishing you much continued success in the coming year my friend!

      Happy New Year to you Tanya! I have my copy of The Poisonwood Bible in hand (got a large print version online from a midwest Goodwill for a few bucks!) Hope to share the challenge soon. As I mentioned to Gina, I have been without a computer since the weekend before Christmas so I am as behind on everything as can be right now – blogging the basics until I get a new one in house and set up!

      Here’s hoping you find the perfect homes for all of the wonderful cats that enter your doors in 2015!

  11. Vickie says:

    Wahoo! We made it to 2015!! Though I am a bit disappointed that our cars don’t hover (In Back To The Future, where they depicted what 2015 would look like, THEIR cars hovered!), I am grateful that there is still hope for our world! Thanks for the party, and have a joyous and blessed new year!

      That would be so cool! It’s really fun watching older movies that look into the future to see what does and doesn’t come true!

      Happy New Year to you!
