Awww Mondays

Audrey is here to brighten your Monday and help you begin the week with a smile.


KITTEN SHENANIGHANS: Tabby Kitten atop cat tree.


We woke very early yesterday morning to discover Audrey and Raleigh running around the house. We thought they were securely tucked into their enclosure Saturday night, but it seems we were mistaken. Later in the week, I will share a photo of what Dad Tom discovered when he went into the foyer, which is where their enclosure is positioned.

We believe the kittens must have run around and explored all night, as when I let them out in the afternoon for their usual bedroom playtime, they slept UTB for four hours!

Cats are opportunists, and kittens are particularly sneaky!

Audrey will be participating in the Awww Mondays blog hop hosted by Comedy Plus. Click on the Awww badge if you’d like to do the same.


SUNRISE SPARK: photo of Blue Ridge Mountain, Virginia, at sunrise.


I am using one of Dad Tom’s recent photographs of the sun rising from behind the Blue Ridge Mountains for my Spark today. I need a little extra strength right now, which I’ll explain in a later post. With new strains of COVID constantly popping up as well as runaway inflation, I think many of us are trying to muster up some extra strength to see us through this difficult time.

Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie is taking a “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. Many of us still continue to post a Spark on Monday, as we believe in Annie’s vision: “I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!”

The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky

This fun-loving, tabby duo will return tomorrow with the next installment in their adventure series. It is Stinky’s week to plan and post their adventure, so look for them right here tomorrow. I know both Periwinkle and Stinky will be looking forward to seeing all of you.
