Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival

Come on over to RAnn's blog for Sunday Snippets, a place where Catholic bloggers like me share our posts. I've discovered some wonderful blogs here.  How about sharing yours?

Semper Gaudete! : Only Two This Year

Semper Gaudete! : Soft Kitty Again

Semper Gaudete! : Books Read In The Past Week

Books Read In The Past Week

Books read for the first time are marked with a #
Books, (except Sunday books) are grouped by author, and not necessarily in the order read.

You'll notice that I've changed the format of this weekly post,

Sunday books

Soft Kitty Again

I just have to share what Winky did the other night... too funny!  
I was singing Soft Kitty to him, and right after I sang the words, "happy kitty, sleepy kitty," he purred three times! So we did the "purr, purr, purr" at the end together! It was a nice little duet.
