Catnip for Christmas

I promise this will be my last cute animal picture for 2006. After that, we’ll move back to historical fiction. But after my daughter took this video of Baxter opening a container of catnip on Christmas day, I couldn’t resist posting it:

Anyway, since many bloggers have been posting their Top 10 books for 2006, I will be following suit before the end of the year. (I’m still pondering the matter.)

On the nonfiction front, I got Eamon Duffy’s Marking the Hours: English People and Their Prayers 1240-1570 for a Christmas present. For those interested in medieval history and/or religious history, I recommend it highly. Fascinating text, beautiful four-color illustrations throughout.

    Baxter is our most talented cat as far as opening things. He can almost turn doorknobs, but hasn’t quite mastered the art yet.

    He would love Germany then, we have handles not knobs. 🙂

    He’s trying to fill out a passport application now. No barrier between him and the bags of cat food then!
