Random Thoughts For a Sunday

I didn't plan to do much work today, as Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest, but I usually do a quick update of news on on Sundays. Then I will often to a little bit of promoting for my books and taking care of tasks like updating my Web site.

Today I decided to check statistics for my Web site. I like to see if I can figure out what promotional efforts might be paying off in terms of driving traffic to my site. It was quite a surprise to find I had a huge spike in hits the week of January 3rd. I'm talking a jump of 500 percent.

As far as I can recall, I did not do anything special that week in terms of promoting, so I have no idea what caused the increase in hits. I'm just thrilled that it happened.

But, back to my random thoughts...

The clouds have gathered over East Texas for the fourth or fifth day in a row. I've lost count - can't even remember when I saw the sun last.

It's a good day to read a book. So maybe I will. And maybe I'll just find a nap hiding in the sofa.

All my cats are napping, so why can't I.

That cat is funny. I had to click on the picture to see if I could figure out which end was which!

I know what you mean about needing sunshine.

LOL, Helen. He gets up on the back of the couch and I swear one of these days he's going to fall through the crack.

The good news is he'll land on his feet.

I stopped back by to tell you I gave you an award today on my blog. (And to peek at the cat again.)

LOL You can hardly tell that fluff ball is a cat! Where's the head?

Nice pic!
