Cats know how to appreciate and cherish the simple things in life: a piece of string, a cork, the ring from the milk jug lid, and cardboard boxes!
Audrey is enjoying the same box Cooper Murphy took his selfie in for yesterday’s post.
Thinking of Kitties Blue, I knew I wanted a Spark about cherishing the simple things. I was surprised how many quotes exist representing this sentiment, and any of them would have been appropriate. But as I am one of those “older” individuals, this one spoke to me. I suspect most, if not all, of you will agree.
The author of today’s Spark, Ronan Patrick John Keating is a 45-year-old, Irish singer. He debuted in 1993 as the co-lead singer of the Irish pop group, Boyzone. His solo career started in 1999, and he has recorded eleven albums.
Sparks is the creation of Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend. Annie stated when she began Sparks, “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.”
Audrey will be participating in the Awww Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus. You can join her there by clicking on the Awww badge.
The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky
Tomorrow, our two experienced, adventuring tabbies, Periwinkle & Stinky, will be setting off from right here on their final adventure prior to Christmas. Once again, Stinky has not shared any details with me, so I will be as surprised as the rest of you to see how they spend their day. Periwinkle & Stinky always have more fun when you join them, so please drop by and lend them a hand or paw in whatever they get up to!
That is so true. Very cute photo. XO
Purrfect Spark! Merry Christmas!
Sweet photo and great Spark. Periwinkle can’t wait until tomorrow.

Audrey is a cutie pie and it’s good that Cooper Murphy shares his box. He’s such a good boy.
Love the quote. So very true.
Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. Scritches to the kitties, a smooch to Cooper Murphy and Sawyer and a big hug to mom. ♥
That Spark is proving true as I get older, for sure! Adorable picture of Audrey!
That Spark is so true!
Mom and I certainly agree with that. We both know, but especially Mom, the truth of those words. Cliches become cliches because they ring true. It takes wisdom and experience to know that though. Old things… another cliche, become new.
That is so true. I remember when I was young I thought the song “Simple Man” by Lynyrd Skynyrd was just the ramblings of someone who needed to join the Twentieth Century. Now that I am older, I see them as words of wisdom.
That’s a great SPARK. My Mom says she feels the same way….the simple things are the things that really matter. It’s easy to forget that in this busy world. We’re looking forward to a very simple Christmas in my house. Full of love and hope for a GOOD new year and we wish that for all of you too!!
Hugs, Teddy and Mom
