Stamp Collecting

I have another blog called Catnap Stamp Collecting dedicated to showing stamps from my collection.

I think you’ll enjoy the stamp blog, especially if you like animals. There will be plenty of cats, but also wildlife and the occasional horse, rabbit, dog, hamster, bird, guinea pig, sea creature, and reptile.

I collect stamps on a few other topics, and I’ll be sharing those too. You’ll see stamps about climate change, space exploration, and miscellaneous stamps that make me smile.

The blog is kid-friendly so it’s something you could do with any little humans that enjoy looking at pictures.

I’d love it if you come take a look and see if it’s something you enjoy reading.

Eco-Friendly Living

We live in Northern California in a typical suburban home. I’ll occasionally share photos of our garden and local wildlife.  We do our best to be kind to nature and live an eco-friendly life.

Books & Music

Cozy mysteries are my go-to for fun reading. I’ve posted book reviews, but now I use Goodreads to indicate which books I enjoyed (or didn’t). There is an Anipals Group that reads light fiction and has a twitter #Readpawty every other month.

I listen to a lot of bluegrass, classic country, classical, a cappella, & some pop.

The soul is the same in all living creatures, although the body of each is different. ~ Hippocrates

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.  ~ Margaret Fuller
