Leap into Beauty

Hee-hee! Get it, leap? Today only happens every four years, Miss Penny speaking. And the beauty part is me, but then you knew that. Do you remember my tousled look of last week? Well, I was right. We took a trip to Pet Agree in Kanata; I love Joni and look what she did. I have never felt so glamorous; I have a pink flower tucked strategically on my right ear (that’s a big word for a little dog) it matches my winter coat and my boots. I sure needed my boots this week. Even on the ploughed sidewalks, the snow came past my belly and inside my coat. Now, that is cold! And squatting, to you know what, I need say no more. I like pushing my nose into the soft snow, I can smell squirrels and that’s confusing because squirrels run up trees, not that I’ve seen any recently.

Susan is giving me ‘the eye’ she has book news. Believing Her Lies – A Lavender Cottage Book (3) has an amazing cover. Psst! I kept telling her the design was okay, but it needed a professional touch. She finally listened and the results speak volumes. Susan uploaded the book ready for the official release March 26th pre-orders available on Kobo and Amazon. First signing Coles Bookstore Billings Bridge March 27th.(TBC)  Click here to read the synopsis.
