Christmas Belle!

I've been playing around with my smaller camera lately. It has all kinds of cool settings, like taking pictures underwater, behind glass, in candlelight, during fireworks, and so forth. Apparently, it even has a setting that snaps a picture when someone smiles. Fun stuff. Anyway, yesterday I was taking pictures of our tree using the available light setting and the candle setting to see how the lights would show up. Guess who shows up instead? Miss Belle! So, the little Christmas Kitty sat there in front of the tree for me. She sat perfectly still, but managed to move her head back and forth just enough to annoy me. I got a few cute pictures of her though, including this one.

On totally different news, my book Lemur Troops & Critter Groups is now officially listed on Amazon. It's still cheaper when you buy it directly from 4RV Publishing, but at least there are other options. You can order this book through any bookstore with the ISBN numbers. Those are ISBN-10 0984070893 and ISBN-13 978-0984070893. So, if you don't order online, bring those numbers to any bookseller and they'll be able to get it for you. I ordered some books for myself recently, since I have family & friends who don't order online and I wanted to have some for them. I cannot wait to see this book. Nikki Shoemaker is an amazing illustrator and has done an incredible job with this book. Like I said, I can't wait to see it for myself!

  2. It looks like your cat is thinking, I own you.

  4. Great picture Rena! The only time our cats go near the tree is when we are asleep and they are trying to eat the ornaments.
