Really Random Tuesday: Boots, Kitty Pic & Giveaway Winner

Yesterday, in my Mailbox Monday post, I mentioned that I’d recently bought a pair of funky boots (and was able to pick any book in the store for free), so today I thought I’d share a photo of my new-to-me boots with you:

I’ve worn them once (we had snow on the weekend) and while they’re comfy, they take a while to lace up! (They have zippers down the sides, but the zippers are defective—I can unzip the boots to take them off but can’t get them zipped back up again without unlacing them first!)

And here’s a pic of Cairo on top of our fridge enjoying scritches from Mr. B. If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you can read the cat comic strips on our fridge! (The one on the left, with the cat with her nose in the air, says “I’m not feeling the love.”)

Finally, it’s about time I pick a winner for my giveaway of a copy of The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are—Your Guide to a Wholehearted Life by Brené Brown (read my review). The winner is Debbie F. Congrats, Debbie—I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did!

  1. Aw, what a sweet kitty. I've got a tabby, too. Aren't they the greatest?

  2. Congrats to Debbie!

    The boots are fun, even if they do take a while to lace up.

    Cairo is one cool cat on the fridge (sorry, couldn't resist!).

    Thanks for doing this meme, Avis!

  3. Your boots are cute and should keep you warm this winter.

    Congratulations to Debbie!

  4. thank you so much! Looking forward to reading this one!!!

  5. Love the boots. Probably because I have a similar pair in black. So far the zippers are still working.

  6. Are those the boots you got from the shop where you get free books? They look great and a little hard work is worth it for cute shoes.

  7. The boots are uber-cool!!!! I want some but not the snow!! Loving the cat photo too!!!

  8. Ohh love the new boots! They are gorgeous!

  9. Those boots are awesome. I love the color. Too bad they didn't design the zippers better though.

  10. Nice boots!

    By the way I came across two similar covers at work the other day. Have you already posted about these two:
    Life Studies by Susan Vreeland
    The Book/The Writer by Zoran Zivkovic
    Both use the same painting in the cover.
