An Awww Mondays Spark

Today’s Spark is really more about the photo of Cooper Murphy and Astrid than it is about the quote. So, I have combined Sparks and Awww Mondays.




It’s been so dang hot, it is hard to be anything but lazy. I’m not sure if it is ever respectable for humans to be lazy, but it is always so for cats. All of the Kitties Blue crew are champions at it.

The author of today’s Spark, Sam Keen, is a prolific American author, professor and philosopher. He’s known for his exploration of questions regarding love, life, religion and being a male in contemporary society.

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.”

Cooper Murphy and Astrid are participating in the Awww Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus. Click on the Awww badge to pop over there.

Great spark, and a perfect photo to match. This summer has been brutal. If staying inside means being lazy, we are guilty for sure. XO

We have rain in our forecast today which keeps the temps down. Our high is to be 87F. Being lazy every now and then is telling us (humans) to regroup. Now, cats, on the other hand, can be lazy anytime they want to. MOL

Well when the temperature is 105 you just HAVE to be lazy – if you do anything energetic you feel awful. Teddy and I are taking it easy – very easy – as in napping whenever possible and staying out of the HEAT! Love the quote.

Hugs, Pam and Ted too

Well, we think its fine to be lazy sometimes. At times of stress, the body needs a good long lazy stretched out kitty-lazy experience! Thank you, Cooper Murphy (FROM WHERE?) and Astrid for the examples of PERFECT lazy lounging.
