I usually have a reason for selecting a particular quote for my Spark, but honestly, I selected the photo first. This is a recent sunset photo taken by Dad Tom. The photo was taken at Beaver Dam Farm in Buchanan, Virginia. It is a 21-acre sunflower farm. I have shared photos from this farm on the blog in the past.

Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie has been taking a “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. Unfortunately, during this break, Annie has been the victim of a hacker. This has continued to keep her off-line and caused her much distress. Please continue to send prayers to Annie and her family as they work to get their lives back to normal.

Many of us believe in Annie’s vision: “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!”

Awww Mondays

I don’t know what is up with Kitties Blue lately. They have not been doing anything “Awwwdorable.” Or, if they have, we haven’t gotten any photos. So I am dipping into the archives again for a kitten photo. This photo, however, isn’t that old. It is from December, 2018 and was taken one month after Sawyer joined the family.



Sawyer is joining the Awww Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus. To join him, click on the badge below.

Birthday Party Tomorrow

Tomorrow our two senior citizens, Mauricio and Misty May, will celebrate their 15th birthdays. Of course, all of the Kitties Blue will be celebrating and invite everyone to join in the fun.

Love the sunflower field and quote……….and that “baby” photo of Sawyer is sweet. He looks happy – he knew he “landed” in the right home that’s for sure! So Mau and Misty May are celebrating tomorrow as they should. Fifteen is a good age…..”old enough to know better but young enough to go for it anyway!”……..HAPPY MONDAY…..

Hugs, Teddy (and Mom Pam)
