Awww Mondays

Yesterday was International Box Day. That’s a holiday Kitties Blue do not like to miss. But with it being both Sunday Selfies and Father’s Day yesterday, they had to wait until today to share their love of boxes. They did receive a new box yesterday, of which Cooper Murphy and Kizmet took advantage.

Kizmet’s second birthday is coming up in a couple of days. With this in mind, she felt entitled to the first “sit-in.” Cooper Murphy did not agree and let her know. Kizmet eventually did get her turn!

The two are participating in the Awww Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus.


My Spark this week has a loose connection to Kitties Blue and International Box Day. I was thinking about how comfortable cats are in boxes. That made me search for a Spark having to do with comfort. This is what I found, and it turned out to be pretty much the opposite of what I expected to post.



Having “one go-round on this planet” struck a chord with me, as I am drawing closer each day to the end of my go-round. Time is precious.

The author of today’s Spark was unfamiliar to me. Here’s a bit about her. Jen Sincero is a 56-year-old, American speaker, success coach and #1 New York Times bestselling author. She is best known for her You Are a BadAss series.

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.”
