As I have done in the past, I am sharing an inspirational quote sent to me by my friend in California. She always seems to sense what I need and sends something appropriate. I hope it resonates with you as it did with me.



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

In spite of Mau’s claim yesterday that tuxie cats are the handsomest, everyone’s favorite ginger cat, Cooper Murphy, is back today for the Awww Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus.



No matter how much you might like to snorgle this boy’s chest, I advise against it, unless you want to be nipped. As Dad Tom always says, “It’s a trap!”

Today is the first day of my favorite season. Unfortunately summer won‘t give up its grip on us. Yesterday was 90 degrees, and today is supposed to be 88 degrees. We have had the most ridiculously hot summer, and I want it to be over. I want to drink hot chocolate, snuggle with kitties and need to put on a hoodie. 

Wherever you reside, Kitties Blue and I wish you a good week.
