Two tabby cats, one brown and one grey lying together with the quote: "One must be prepared for some surprises in life - some things will work out your way, some won't. You just have to keep working and do things to the best of your ability." by Fawad Khan.


This photo may not be the perfect accompaniment to today’s Spark; though, Sawyer was surprised when Audrey joined him for his nap. And he appears less than happy with the situation. When I selected the Spark I didn’t have a photo in mind, except maybe the following one.


Yard, tree, birdbath, umbrella and flag with a light covering of snow.


Though a “wintery mix” was the forecast for Saturday night, I was surprised to wake up to this Sunday morning. This was our first snow of winter, and as you can see, it didn’t amount to much. There are blooming daffodils in the photo. Of course, “working to do things to the best of one’s ability” has no relationship to this photo.

The author of today’s Spark, Fawad Khan, is a 41-year-old Pakistani actor, producer, screenwriter, model and singer.

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.”

PetBiz Collaborative

I chose this Spark because it speaks to me, and it has everything to do with “working to do things to the best of one’s ability.” This past week I have been trying to create reels for Instagram. Though I had done a few in the past, this was a project set up by a group, the PetBiz Collaborative, of which I am a member. It has been an incredibly difficult challenge, and one to which I will be putting in some additional effort. If you’d like to see what I have accomplished, click on the Instagram-logo-bearing mouse on the sidebar. And if you are interested in finding out more about the collaborative, click on that link.

The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky

Those two fun-loving tabbies, Periwinkle & Stinky, will be setting off on a new adventure tomorrow. You’ll be able to find them right here, as it is Stinky’s turn to plan their adventure. Adventures are more fun when you join in, so they’ll be waiting for you.
