It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

We are joining McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks (even though she is on hiatus), Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

River of Time: My Descent into Depression and How I Emerged with Hope by Naomi Judd with Marcia Wielke was excellent. I have read all her previous books and admired her honesty in telling all the details of her life, mistakes and all. This book is the same as she gives all the details of her severe depression including being so desperate that she endured electroshock therapy. It seems hard to believe that someone so successful could get into such a deep depression, but heredity plays a role in this too.

I’ve Been Thinking . . .Reflections, Prayers, and Meditations for a Meaningful Life by Maria Shriver is also well worth reading. Each chapter tells a lesson she has learned in life as well as a prayer or meditation at the end to tie in with the lesson. I have always admired the Kennedy family’s dedication to the service of helping others less fortunate.

My spark for today is a quote from Maria Shriver, “Time is our most precious resource, but very few of us use it as wisely as we could. We rush around so much that sometimes we forget to actually live. ”

Joanie was not particularly cooperative for her photo shoot.

Penny will be here tomorrow with one of her tips and Wednesday we will be showing photos of Moo’s first stop.

 

Bikini Season

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade. Basil, one of the hosts of the Pat Parade is not feeling well, please purr and pray for him.

We are also joining the Appreciate the Moments blog hop hosted by Everyday Dog Mom and Dog Mom Days. The word this month is summer and nothing says summer like a kitty in a bikini.   I love this badge that Ann of Zoolatry made for us back in 2015.

2. The last thing I purchased online was a Keurig carafe my niece asked me to get her for her birthday. She is going to be 30, I feel very old. Her 2nd child is due on the same day as her birthday, that would be cool.
3. I have never left the country. I have no desire to either. Actually, I don’t even like leaving my home.

Here is my poem for  Sammy’s Poetry Day.

Once again I went with a haiku to go with this photo.

Sweet, loving, cuddly.
Kittens are so innocent
and very playful.

Tuxie Tuesday

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Tuesday Fun Blog Hop.

Emmy wants to thank you all for the purrs and prayers. She continues to have a good appetite ( knock on wood , 3 times).  She also gifted me with a ginormous hairball on Sunday morning which is probably what part of her problem had been.

We also want to show off the badge we got from Teddy at One Spoiled Cat.

We had to create a recipe from a gross photo, we didn’t win, but you can check out all the recipes by clicking here.

 

Memorial Day

Hi everyone!I know it is Memorial Day, but we are still hopping.We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays, and Mewsic Moves Me (hosted by Curious as a Cathy, Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.) We are also still doing a Spark.

My spark is a quote by Gandhi- ‘ Speak only if it improves upon the silence.’  I m not sure if it is just me, but it sure seems like there is too much talking everywhere and so much of it is just babble. It drives me crazy to see drivers on their cell phones, people walking and texting. Pardon my rant.

This week is our choice for the Mewsic Hop so I chose a song that goes with my spark.

Neon Trees- Everybody Talks-

And here is another photo of Joanie from her photo shoot with The Great One.

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! We are joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfies Blog Hop

Some of you have asked about Gremmie. Him is good. I is dealing with a new kind of gremlin now.

Does anyone have a place I can hide on Thursday mornings? At least she gives me treats.

Mrs Potato Head is having some relatives over for dinner- Grammie is bringing potato salad. Maybe we won’t tell Mrs. Potato Head.

Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

  For my art, I am reusing this art I made of Lucy in 2015. She posed with a photo of my Dad in the Air Force and his memorial flag.

Thank you all for the purrs and prayers for Emmy. She is eating again. I hope she stays healthy, but I know the antibiotic shot has an anti inflammatory effect that helped Phoebe eat when she first had one so I am cautiously optimistic. I do think the addition of Trouble stressed her which could have led to a UTI.
