Sqirrly, Squirrels & Spring

Where to start with a title like that? Miss Penny speaking. I’ve noticed that this lockdown, because of the corona thing, is causing my two legged friends to get a bit testy, hence the word squirrly. I’m told by the author is not a word, but I’m a dog so, to the grammar police, its doggy language. It also reminds me of squirrels, and there are a lot of them as we get into spring—even spring is debatable. I saw flakes of snow this week, plus a cold wind that blows right through my fur and I have a long thick coat right now. Hm, we’ve not been to the groomers for a while, close because of this corona thing. Gees, it is making life difficult. Back to squirrels. My walks are exciting as I watch the squirrels play. I try to chase them through the trees. Did you know a squirrel can run up a tree in a flash? I tried following by standing on my hind legs and leaping at the tree, nothing happens and I fall over.  Susan laughs, very embarrassing. Hm, let’s change the subject and see what Susan has been up to this week.

Well, she is very squirrly, not from the corona thing but learning how to advertise on Amazon. I don’t understand this but it requires, scraping data, spreadsheets and thousands of keywords, that’s definitely a perfect definition for squirrly. Susan tells me that Amazon is not shipping her print books, so she needs to sell more ebooks to buy my kibble and chicken. What? Yes, I have fresh cooked chicken breast for my breakfast and supper. I know I’m spoilt but then remember I’m an adorable little dog. Psst! If you’d like to have a copy of one of Susan’s nine books, try Book Depository, or Contact Susan or click on the links below. I like my chicken and having to eat plain dry kibble or, ‘shudder’, canned food doesn’t bare thinking about. Love you all, Stay safe Miss Penny and Susan.

That’s Me!

That’s me! Miss Penny VA. Can you see? Right there in the left corner of Susan’s website image. No idea what VA means Very Attractive, perhaps? Oh, Susan says  it means virtual assistant. I prefer my definition. You may notice Susan A Jennings Author For the love of story website has a new look. I’m chuffed, final recognition how ever you define VA. But what’s happened to my blog? I know Susan is busy,  working on the modified website, (she apologizes for errors work in progress) and promoting the new Lavender Cottage Book, Believing Her Lies. But Susan promised. I’m pouting a little. Occasionally she takes her focus off me, which is totally unacceptable, but pawing for attention with my wayward look and sad eyes is not working at the moment. To make matters worse, we have no hydro this morning. Up early as usual and before the coffee finished filtering, puff the lights went out. Thank heavens there was enough coffee for one mug. Psst! She can be cranky without coffee. No walk this morning, it’s pee-pad or wait, because the elevators aren’t working, that’s unusual too. The generators might not have kicked in. I don’t mind, I’ll just curl up and sleep. Now, this would be a good day for Susan to make my blog. What do you think? Um… maybe not no hydro, no internet. Sigh…………Update: Hydro back on, a fire in a substation caused the black out.

Believing Her Lies – A Lavender Cottage Book (3)  Now uploaded; the official release March 26th  Pre-order now on Kobo and Amazon.

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.

Mission Accomplished!

I’ve had enough of this weather, Miss Penny speaking, snow and more snow. Do you have any idea how cold it is to walk with bare paws in snow? And, if it’s not cold snow it’s stinging, burning wet salt, creeping in between my paw pads. Susan tries to help by putting socks on my paws, but I look like a right narna with happy face socks; they feel weird and I try to kick them off. Adding insult to injury Susan laughs as I kick my back legs calling me a donkey. Donkey, indeed! Did I mention the cold? At eight pounds, I don’t have much fat on me so even with my coat on, and there’s another story, I’m cold and shiver. But Susan makes me walk, cruelty it is. Eight pounds or not I can sit on my haunches and dig my heels in and nothing can move me. Then, I lift one paw, pull my ears close to my face and look up with sad, hurt eyes. Hee, hee! That does it. She picks me up and if I wind up the shivering, Susan cuddles me and carries me home to our nice warm condo. Mission accomplished. Now, I can curl up in my bed and snooze while Susan works. BIG News!
