Introducing Starburst

A few weeks ago my daughter and I were in Petco and saw these lovely Guinea Pigs. One in particular caught my eye and I just had to buy her. Guinea pigs love to groom each other, but my Starburst wanted none of it and she started having this kicking fit~I knew right then and there she was the one for me!

Guinea Pigs make great pets~if you show them love they will love you back. They also jump a lot(called popcorning)and the first time my daughter and I saw Starburst jumping, we did not know what was going on. It is still funny to see her jumping all over her cage for about 30 seconds almost non stop. The books will tell you to have more than on Guinea Pig, but Starburst has been fine on her own. We do hold her a lot when we are at home and give her maybe to much attention.

If you are thinking about buying a pet~I would recommend starting out with a Guinea Pig. Who can resit a face like my Starburst?

Hoping everyone will have a great week.

Think Time

Each day is a new canvas to pain upon. Make sure your picture is full of life and happiness, and at the end of the day you don't look at it and wish you had painted something different.

Book Giveaway

A few weeks ago, I had the honor of meeting North Carolina's author Vicki Lane at Fountainhead Bookstore. I have just started reading Mrs. Lane's books and blog and I am taking with it all! Mrs Lane has written several books on Elizabeth Goodweather which are Appalachian mysteries and I have enjoyed her first book very much.
A Wonderful Independent Bookstore

Before, Mrs Lane read from her book, she asked "Where is Tracy Garcia?" It took a few seconds for me to realize she was asking for me! I was honor that she remembered me through her blog and it proved to me~yes you can have friends through blogging. I did speak with Mrs Lane after her reading and she is a very sweet and soft spoken person. She signed all her books for me and I have an extra copy of her first book.
