Happy President’s Day!

Hi everyone! Today we are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays, McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks and Curious as a Cathy’s Mewsic Moves Me blog hops. Being that it is a holiday in the USA , we are going to take a break from the reading hop today.

Joanie is taking a day off today. Mrs. Potato Head has offered to watch Gremmie for her while she naps.

She knows he will be safe. Mrs. Potato Head has eyes on the back of her head.

Our Spark today is a quote from Abraham Lincoln. “Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other thing.”

And this week’s theme is our choice for Curious as a Cathy’s Mewsic Moves Me so I am doing songs that annoy me. I know that seems like an odd choice in a post with Sparks, but it is just for fun.

Imagine Dragons- Thunder annoys me because a little voice keeps repeating thunder, thunder, thunder and it sounds like a little martian to me. Then it gets stuck in my head.

Adele’s Hello annoys me too. She has a beautiful voice, but the lyrics disturb me. Who in their right mind would like to get together with an ex to discuss what went wrong? Get out of the past and move on lady.

And lastly, Florida Georgia Line’s H.O.L.Y really irritates me because they sing “Holy, holy, holy” the same way it is sung before communion in church except they are worshiping a woman instead of God. Ok, that one wasn’t for fun, it is a pet peeve of mine.

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! Thank you to everyone who gave me some ideas for the A-Z challenge, they are greatly appreciated. I will try to find a pattern for kitty underwear-thank you Summer 🙂

We are joining McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks, Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays, Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? and Curious as a Cathy’s Mewsic Moves Me blog hops. We love to hop!

 We just finished Lessons from Stanley the Cat by Jennifer Freed. Psychotherapist, Jennifer Freed writes about lessons she learned from her beloved cat, Stanley. This book was published in 2010 so you can get a cheap used copy on Amazon. My Spark is one of his lessons, “Do not let any bad comments or derision bother you. Consider negativity as passing gas.” Very wise advice.

This week’s mewsic theme is your favorite love songs so here are mine:

I have never seen a Twilight movie, but I love this song.

Sparks and More

Hi everyone!  Today we are joining It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? The kiddy lit version hosted by Teacher Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers. We are also joining Comedy Plus’ Awww…..Mondays and McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks.

Joanie is posing with our book recommendation.

When I found out that our friend Cathy of Curious as a Cathy, had written a children’s book years ago, I was eager to get a copy for my great-niece. Cathy even wrote a little note for my great-niece and autographed it.  I will have to save this for her for a while because the book is for slightly older kids than a 2-year-old.  I bought the book so I am not under obligation to write a review, but I want to because I enjoyed it.

It is a cute story about 2 girls visiting their grandparents. While there, they also visit with their great-grandma and she tells them the story of a panther that chased her as a child. There is even a black cat in the book which made it extra special for me.  I think family is very important so I enjoyed that there were several generations together in the story. Cathy got the inspiration from her family and the girls portrayed in the story are her daughters.

If you are interested, you can purchase it at Amazon.

And our Spark for today is not a quote, but a link to a site with free meditations. All you need to do is register with them for free and then you can listen to several free guided meditations. Calm.com  I have not done one yet, but I hope to this week. I think everyone can benefit from meditation.
