Sparks: Week #4

We are all exhausted from partying yesterday for Me-yowl-o-ween! Most of us are trying to recover from our sugar overload coma. So, it’s a purrfect day for Wordless Wednesday, but we missed the Sparks blog hop on Monday and are going to use a few words and post our inspirational quote for the week.



Once again the photo was taken by Dad Tom. This is the Glade Creek Grist Mill, Babcock State Park, West Virginia. We think it is a great complement to the John Muir quote.

This is a blog hop established and hosted by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). In starting this hop, Annie said, “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!”

To join the hop, which remains open through Friday, click on the badge above.

Total Cat Mojo Giveaway

If you missed our Monday post, Mom reviewed the new Jackson Galaxy book, Total Cat Mojo. Mom says this is the reference manual all cat guardians or anyone considering adopting a kitty needs at their fingertips. Galaxy addresses every cat behavioral problem he has ever encountered or been questioned about.

One lucky reader will have the opportunity to win their very own copy. Just leave a comment on the review post, Total Cat Mojo Review & Giveaway, for a chance to win. Winner will be selected using Giveaway is open worldwide.

That turned into more than a few words…sorry!

We’ll be back tomorrow with a new poem for Teddy and angel Sammy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

We love love love the picture and the John Muir quote is wonderful. Our human makes slideshows for a nearby nature center and uses a lot of nature quotes and she has not seen this beautiful one. Thanks for sharing both!

Pretty fall photo, Miss Janet! When Mom first saw it she thought it was an old mill in Colorado that she visited years ago with Grandpa. It gets photographed a lot & looks a lot like the one you show here. Mom loves historic architecture. Thanks fur sharing!
