Jade/Kathy is locked in her writing cave, so #Squidge and Cinnamon have decided to fill in for her today on the blog with their autumn likes/dislikes.



I'm Cinnamon and I keep Jade/Kathy as my human pet. She is very good scratching under my chin--though not for long enough--and can usually be annoyed enough to feed me really good food. This makes her an acceptable human pet and therefore I have decided to help her out with this blog.

Things I like about autumn.

A. Mousies! Mousies in the morning, mousies in the afternoon, mousies all day long running everywhere!

B. Plentiful mousies mean I get to eat one, gift one to my human pets, and play with all the rest!

C. My human wears thicker clothing so when I want her attention, I have to really push my claws into her leg. But she's much more willing to let me snooze on her lap. Apparently in summer I make her sweat.


D. It's not hot anymore. Chasing mousies in a fur coat in summer is really not as fun as it sounds.

Answer: Mousies!

Hello! I'm #Squidge.


I have no idea why Cinnamon thought it was fun to be in a bag of toilet paper, but for consistency sake, I took a picture here too. Weird cat. The things I like about fall are:

A. I don't notice the temperature change, so cold or hot makes no difference to me. But my human likes this weather so I get to go more places. Sadly, I usually just sit in the car while she walks around or rollerblades in the park. Which means I'm not so fond of autumn. Look at this picture of Grant Park in Chicago. Do you see me anywhere? Nope. I was in the car.


B. When she does take me out, there are lots of cool colors. This was fun.


C. But as soon as the leaves start falling off the trees, it makes it really hard to play hide and seek. I kinda stand out.


D. Readers and Ritas! November means I get to be adopted by lots of new friends! Anyone going to Readers and 'Ritas will get to adopt me! SQUEEEEEE!

Answer: D -- NEW FRIENDS! Readers and 'Ritas! Yeah!

From Jade/Kathy -- Thanks you two for helping me with this blog. And now commenters, it's your chance. Tell me what you like/hate about autumn and one lucky reader will get a free Jade Lee or Kathy Lyons eBook of your choice. Here's a picture of my latest Kathy Lyons book -- TWO WEEK SEDUCTION.

I love autumn's cooler weather. Thanks for a fun post.
(G S Moch 12:55pm November 5, 2014)

I like the different colors of the leaves, but I don't like gathering them from the yard.
(Kv H 5:01pm November 5, 2014)

i love the foliage
(Debbi Shaw 9:35pm November 5, 2014)

I love the cooler weather, but I hate the fact that it gets dark so early.
(Abby Thorne 10:54pm November 5, 2014)

I love the changing color of the leaves and the crisp smell in the air.
(Marcy Shuler 12:11pm November 6, 2014)

This time of year, I love looking out of my windows, and
looking at the beautiful colors of the trees, of every color
imaginable. I enjoy watching the farmers with their heavy
equipment, harvesting the corn and soybeans on part of the
property I live on. It's amazing to watch. I also love
watching the new birds who have come here to eat at our
feeders for the Fall and Winter. I don't care for the
cooler temperatures, because it affects part of my health
problems, so I hibernate more. I also miss some of my
favorite birds like the Hummingbirds and Grosbeaks, who have
migrated to warmer climates. When you live in the country,
it gets dark so early, you have a hard time staying awake
after 5 pm!! lol The last thing I hate is when you can't
get a choice between e-book and print copy!! I have an old
computer, and volunteer to teach a knitting class. Since I
don't own an e-reader, this computer would have to do for
downloading, and I'm also on dial-up, living in the country.
I don't have room on my computer, since my class material
has taken up the space on my computer!! I would love to
read your book this upcoming Fall/Winter, but guess that
leaves me in the bag of toilet paper with Squidge!! lol
Take care.

love autumn--my birthday and thanksgiving!
(Denise Holcomb 11:25pm November 6, 2014)

love the snow
(Kent Cook 7:58pm November 25, 2014)

I don't like autumn at all, I can't stand the cold!
(Jen Barnard 4:24am November 26, 2014)

where I live, logging companies and farmers burn fields starting in fall. I
hate the smoke and how it gets dark early.

But I love the moderate weather, sweaters, and my birthday.
(Leann Griffiths 5:36am November 26, 2014)

I am more of a spring kind of gal
(Donna Antonio 10:11am November 26, 2014)

Autumn is the start of cold weather so no, not my favorite time
of year. It seems this fall we've jumped right into winter.
(Glenda Hefty 11:23pm November 26, 2014)

Awesome post #Squidge and Cinnamon. Your human Mom writes such cool books:) I like the cooler weather of Autumn and the leaves start changing color.

Mindy :)
(Mina Gerhart 8:50am November 27, 2014)

Enjoyed the post. Favorite thing about autumn is the crisp cool
temperatures and the leaves changing colors.
(Michelle Anderson 10:16pm November 27, 2014)

Love Fall will all the different colored leaves. My sweet gum trees are turning now.
(Vera Wilson 7:01am November 28, 2014)

I love the cooler weather (although here in Houston it's not that much cooler)
(Lisa Avila 8:34am November 28, 2014)

I love the fact that it's not 100 degrees out anymore, and
I love the amazing colors.
(Terrirri Chlapek 5:12pm November 28, 2014)

What a great post! Loved it!
(Ashley Applebee 9:41pm November 28, 2014)

I love the changing colors of the leaves and that I can start
wearing my sweatshirts again!
(Kim Perry 11:55pm November 28, 2014)

November is the month of my birthday and Thanksgiving and the
fall colors are lovely but....often it gets cold and snowy and
I'm not a fan!
(Glenda Hefty 2:30pm November 29, 2014)

I love the somewhat cooler temperatures in autumn.
(Janie McGaugh 8:48pm November 29, 2014)

The colours of autumn are what I love the best, especially when I can get out with the camera to try to capture them!


(Lynn Rettig 5:25pm November 30, 2014)

I live in Florida so the weather gets just a little cooler (people start wearing gloves, hats, winter jackets cause they still think they live in the North!) I am still in shorts & flip flops!
(Nancy Ludvik 10:28pm November 30, 2014)

thanks for the posts!
(Stefany Burroughs 1:38am December 3, 2014)

I love the colder weather,but not the snow. Autumn is my
favorite season. It is so beautiful and the crisp air is

(Marilyn Collins 5:36pm December 9, 2014)

I love the colors and weather of fall until it starts veering
toward winter. Winter is not a favorite living in this area of
the country. Spring is my most favorite though because winter
is over!
(Glenda Hefty 6:25pm December 10, 2014)

I love to win your contest!
(Susan Mahaffey 10:36pm December 11, 2014)

I love autumn because the weather is just cool enough (and not too cold) and I
don't have to put up with the heat in the summer! I'd rather feel the heat when I
read romance!
(Shelly Ash 4:23pm December 12, 2014)

I like when the summer humidity is gone with the autumn air.
(Diane Sallans 8:58pm December 12, 2014)

I love Autumn...Cool, crisp and clean...a nice change from the Texas heat...and helps get us ready for the Winter temps...40's and lower sometimes. LOL Loved your post
(Kimberley Coover 6:57pm December 13, 2014)

I love the cooler temps.
