Once again, I colored today’s Spark using the Happy Color app. This is a something with which I have a little difficulty. I have quite a few unmet goals, as I often let even the littlest distraction or problem get in my way. So today’s Spark is a reminder to myself.

As I’ve been reminding you for months, 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.”

Awww Mondays

On our Sunday Selfies post yesterday Astrid promised you some photos of her on the catio checking out the last of this summer’s nip. In fact, she was the first to climb in the pot. Cooper Murphy (“Our Over-Stuffed Turkey Cat“) is on the railing behind her and nosed her right out of the pot. I need to take a lesson from Cooper Murphy. He didn’t let a little problem like Astrid get in the way  of his goal of getting the catnip!

Hi Guys!
Mom loves that quote! This last year has been quite the problem. |Thing that should have been easy peezy have been difficult.
We have to tell you-that pot of nip is magnificent! And we can see why there have been many who would like to imbibe! Are there ever more than one of you “enjoying” at the same time?

This is so true….our goals don’t care a bit about our disabilities. However, when we hit the goal after struggling so hard to get there, the success is ever so sweet.

What a cutie you are Astrid, enjoy the nip. I love that spark and I love all those colors too.

Love the Spark and it’s ever so true. We need to deal with the problems that are standing in the way of our goals. Cooper Murphy is ever so right, as always.

Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. Scritches to all the kitties and my best to your wonderful mom. ♥

Such a wonderful NipFest and a darn good Spark too.

Coop and I know that there’s nothing more determined than a BIG orange tabby so poor Astrid didn’t stand a chance of occupying that pot of nip for long!

Hugs, Teddy

A delightful potful of nip! Every kitty’s goal is to imbibe to the max, even if it means gretting into the pot! Cooper Murphy are you a wee bit of a bully?? MOL!

When I am at my work, a lot of times there are distractions or things that make our goals seem impossible, but since we know what those goals are, well, we try to stay on track as best we can. The day to day problems need attention, but they can’t steal those goals off the list!


Meows, purrs, hugs and MOLs are greatly appreciated. Please no hissing, spitting or scratching unless you want one of us to whap you!
