Kizmet has taken charge of the kittens. She determined that Audrey had not done a good job of washing her face, so Kizmet took over the task, as the two enjoyed a sunpuddle. If you enlarge the photo, you can just see Kizmet’s tongue to the left of Audrey’s right paw. Audrey often returns the favor and helps Kizmet bathe.
I think the way Kizmet takes care of the kittens is pretty darn awww-dorable. That’s why she and Audrey are joining the Awww Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus. Click on the Awww badge to do the same.
I have posted this Spark previously, but I do think it is one worth repeating. It basically is telling us to be present in our lives at all times. I often go through my days just doing and not thinking. I have trouble living in the moment. As I continue to grow older, I need constant reminders that our time on earth is fleeting, and I should not just let it slip away.
The author of today’s Spark, Sai Baba of Shirdi was an Indian spiritual master, identified as a saint and a fakir. He was revered by both his Hindu and Muslim devotees during, as well as after, his lifetime. According to accounts from his life, Sai Baba preached the importance of “realization of the self.”
The photo is one of Dad Tom’s, which he took recently. In the background is Looking Glass Mountain, which is located in Transylvania County, North Carolina.
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
Your favorite cartoon tabbies, Periwinkle and Stinky, will be taking their next adventure tomorrow right here. These two active youngsters have barrels of fun when they’re together. Tomorrow they will be making their annual visit to their friend, Walter, who has a home for black cats, to get his Halloween wish list. Next week, they will deliver the items on his list. Periwinkle and Stinky will be wearing the costumes our readers voted for in the poll from two week’s ago. They really hope you stop by to see how cute they look and accompany them on their visit to Walter.
