Awww Mondays

Yesterday for Sunday Selfies I shared a two-fur photo of Raleigh and Audrey. Today, for Awww Mondays, I have a three-fur with Calista Jo, Astrid and Cooper Murphy.


smoochable toe beans: Three cats (ginger tabby, tortoise shell and dilute tortoise shell snoozing on humans' bed and showing off their toe beans (paw pads).



All felines are adorable, so obviously I think these three qualify for inclusion in the Awww Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus. As an added bonus, Coop and Astrid are sharing lots of smoochable toe beans. 

Cooper Murphy, Astrid and C.J. will be popping over to Comedy Plus to join the Awww Mondays blog hop. If you would like to participate, click on the badge below.


Yesterday, Dad Tom and I attended the memorial service for a friend who died a week ago. Yesterday was also the 58th anniversary of my mother’s passing. Of course, those two things got me thinking about death. I have lost a few friends who were way to young at the time of their deaths. I, however, have never personally been afraid of facing my own death. I’ve just always felt sad about the fact that things will occur after I’m gone that I would not have wanted to miss. I don’t particularly feel like that now, however, as our country and world are in such a mess. Dad Tom and I tell each other often that we are happy we are in the latter years of our lives.

All this is to explain why I selected the following quote for my Spark.



I cannot imagine too many individuals would be content to live a life totally without love.

The author of today’s Spark, Russell Marion Nelson Sr., is an American religious leader and retired surgeon. He is currently the 17th president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

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. It’s Periwinkle’s turn to plan what they will be doing. That means, you’ll need to stop in at her blog, Friends Furever, to join in their fun. I know the kitties will be looking for you, so don’t forget to pop on over tomorrow.

Thanks for joining us today.
