Awww Mondays


A grey tabby cat with noms (food) on his nose.


Sawyer’s always awwwdorable, but particularly so when he’s eaten his entire breakfast—a rare occurrence—and saved some noms on his nose for later!

Sawyer will be joining the Awww Mondays blog hop hosted by Sandee at Comedy Plus. If you would like to be a part of the hop, click on the Awww badge.


We are enjoying one of the prettiest autumns this year. The leaves have had the most vibrant colors. I decided to use a photo of our crepe myrtle tree as the background for my Spark. It had begun to lose some leaves when Dad Tom took the photo, but I think you’ll agree that the bright orange leaves are stunning.

The beauty of this autumn made me think of how humans currently are not being very good stewards of our earth.  That is what prompted this Spark from environmental activist, Wendell Berry.

I thought you might be interested to know the history of the tree. Dad Tom and I planted it 25 years ago in memory of my friend, Lynn, who passed away that year (1998) from malignant melanoma. She was three months short of her 40th birthday. We now have a small crepe myrtle growing up from one of the original’s roots. Three of the Kitties Blue sisters, Daphne, Thelma and Louise, are buried beneath Lynn’s tree.

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.”

The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky

It’s time again for our two fun-loving tabbies, Periwinkle & Stinky, to take-off on another adventure. With it being Halloween, it might be something spooky! Stinky is busy planning it, which means you can find them right here tomorrow. I know the kitties will be looking for you, so don’t forget to pop on over tomorrow.

Thanks for joining us today.
