#CatThursday - #Authors and #Cats (61) Karen Blixen (Isak Dinesen)


Welcome to the weekly meme that celebrates the wonders and sometime hilarity of cats! Join us by posting a favorite LOL cat pic you may have come across, famous cat art or even share with us pics of your own beloved cat(s). It's all for the love of cats! (share your post in the Mr. Linky below)

The second Cat Thursday of each month is Authors and Cats Thursday. Each time I will feature an author with their cat(s), or pictured with a cat(s).


In honor of her birthday on April 17, Karen Blixen is our author this month. She is most famously known for her book, Out of Africa, though she wrote many others.

Karen Christence Dinesen, Baroness Blixen-Finecke - wrote as Isak Dinesen, Pierre Andrézel, other pseudonyms: Tania Blixen, Osceola, etc. (April 17, 1885 - September 07, 1962)

A Danish writer, who mixed in her work supernatural elements, aestheticism, and erotic undertones with an aristocratic view of life, Blixen always emphasized that she was a storyteller in the traditional, oral sense of the word. She drew her inspiration from the Bible, the Arabian Nights, the works of Homer, the Icelandic Sagas, and the fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen, who was her great fellow countryman. She wrote in English and in Danish.

Baroness Karen Blixen was born in Rungsted, Denmark, into a well-to-do patrician family. She was the daughter of Ingeborg Westenholz Dinesen, and the writer and army officer Wilhelm Dinesen, whose adventuresome spirit and storytelling talents influenced deeply Blixen's imagination. She spent her childhood on the family estate in Rungsted. Throughout her life Blixen's outlook and manner were unabashedly aristocratic. (from Goodreads)

Quick post here! We're leaving for Mammoth Cave in Kentucky today. I haven't had a chance to visit your posts from last week, as I was sick last week. Went to the doctor on Monday and I'm finally feeling better. Thank goodness! Anyway, enjoy today's funnies and I'll stop by your posts early next week. Happy Spring!

2017 Spring #Bloggiesta


As always, I'm in. Not sure how much I'll get done, or even if I plan on doing a whole lot. I was sick with some respiratory problems that (thought) I had finally kicked last weekend, but it came back Thursday with a vengeance. I've decided to go to urgent care later today if I don't feel much improved in the morning. I DO NOT want antibiotics, as I'm allergic to everything so let's hope it's not pneumonia or some other infection. The boys are on Spring Break this week and we're going to Mammoth Cave in Kentucky on Thursday. I need to feel better!

Anyway, I digress. Here's my list. I will add to it, if I see fit.

  • make button for Spring into Horror Readathon
  • draft and publish sign-up post for Spring into Horror
  • .....
  • ....
  • ....

I'll try to visit some blogs as well. 😀

Happy Bloggiesta!

#CatThursday - #Authors and #Cats (60) Gloria Steinem


Welcome to the weekly meme that celebrates the wonders and sometime hilarity of cats! Join us by posting a favorite LOL cat pic you may have come across, famous cat art or even share with us pics of your own beloved cat(s). It's all for the love of cats! (share your post in the Mr. Linky below)

The second Cat Thursday of each month is Authors and Cats Thursday. Each time I will feature an author with their cat(s), or pictured with a cat(s).

In honor of National Women's History Month, our author this month is Gloria Steinem. 


Gloria Marie Steinem (born March 25, 1934) is an American feminist, journalist, and social and political activist who became nationally recognized as a leader of, and media spokeswoman for, the women's liberation movement in the late 1960s and 1970s. A prominent writer and key counterculture era political figure, Steinem has founded many organizations and projects and has been the recipient of many awards and honors. She was a columnist for New York magazine and co-founded Ms. magazine. In 1969, she published an article, " After Black Power, Women's Liberation", which, along with her early support of abortion rights, catapulted her to national fame as a feminist leader.

In 2005, Steinem worked alongside Jane Fonda and Robin Morgan to co-found the Women's Media Center, an organization that works to amplify the voices of women in the media through advocacy, media and leadership training, and the creation of original content. Steinem currently serves on the board of the organization. She continues to involve herself in politics and media affairs as a commentator, writer, lecturer, and organizer, campaigning for candidates and reforms and publishing books and articles. (from Goodreads)

I read her book, Revolution from Within: A Book of Self-Esteem when I was going through a tough time in my early twenties. It really helped me. I've always admired Steinem.

As promised, pics from Alice and Arya's respective birthdays. Friday was Alice's 10th birthday, and Tuesday was Arya's 6th birthday. I'm so blessed to have such wonderful cat daughters. They are part of the family and we love them so. 😻

We didn't get as many shots of Arya with the boys. She's still not completely comfortable being held by them. She's a mama's girl.
