My latest literary interest is the British author Tom Cox, who writes about living out in the country with a bunch of cats. I love his stuff because he truly loves cats and understands feline nature, and also he's really funny. I had to order his first two cat books (Under the Paw and Talk to the Tail) from a UK seller on because they're not published in the US yet. I was able to check out The Good, the Bad, and the Furry from the library, but I'm sure I'll be buying that too. And the new one, Close Encounters of the Furred Kind, once it is available in the US.

He also has a Twitter account called "Why my cat is sad" (@mysadcat), about his wonderful cat The Bear. Here is an article about The Bear.

I have a three-day weekend. I was going to be productive and do a lot of stuff today but all I really got done was a 7-mile wog, plus going shoe shopping with The Mighty Sam, who has embarked on a couch-to-5K program.

Crocuses are out all over, and even some daffodils have started blooming. West Seattle is a teeny bit more temperate than the rest of the region, but even so I think the climate here has definitely changed. Stuff never used to bloom this early. You'd see crocuses in February but no daffodils until March.

There are a few things growing in our back yard, probably daffodils. It will be fun to see what starts blooming around here. Then I'll have an idea of what to plan, and plant, for next year.
