Emmy is checking YELP for the best nip in town
Joanie has a DVD review today.
I looked on Pinterest for today’s SPARK and chose this:
“When it rains, look for the rainbow.When it’s dark, look for the stars.”
There is something good to be found in every situation, although sometimes we need to look hard to find it.
Hubby and I got to see 11 meteors Friday night, that was fun. Did anyone else watch for them?
PS: Some of you misunderstood our post yesterday. Feline Opines is not ending, just the Blogger Showcase hop that was twice a month. We are glad they will still be there.

Hi everyone! We are joining three hops today, but first I would like to ask for purrs and prayers for our friend Astrid of Four-Legged Furballs. She had surgery on what was thought to be a benign tumor, but now needs more surgery because it is a malignancy. Her mom is very worried so please pray for her too.
First off is Joanie’s review:
I haz no time for review this week. Halloween only 2 weeks away and I needz costume.
The book I am going to review ties in with my “Spark” for this week.
Einstein and the Rabbi: Searching for the Soul by Naomi Levy is an amazing book. The author was inspired by a letter that Einstein wrote to a man who had lost his son.She searches for the man and many others whose lives he had touched. Her search is only part of the book though, she also offers ways we can connect with our soul. One way is through meditation, she recommends just meditating on the word “husa”. I was not familiar with the term before reading this book. It means an artists love for his ( or her) creation even if it is flawed. Much like we are all flawed, but God still loves us. By meditating on this we will become more forgiving and soften our judgement of others and ourselves.
So my spark for the week is simply, husa.

2. Nic Cage’s choice of movies to act in disappoints me. I was so excited to have a new DVD from the library last Saturday called Arsenal, but we only watched 10 minutes of it because it was so violent ( and I like mob movies so I am not squeamish).
3.Rescuing cats is my calling in life.
4.In retrospect, I should have majored in something other than Elementary Education in college like English /Writing.

First off is Joanie’s weekly review.
Love with a Chance of Drowning by Torre DeRoche. I not drowning for anyone, I am glad my boyfriend, Simon is land lover like me.
Thank you Joanie. I actually loved this book. I am not sure why because I am not a fan of the ocean, I can’t even stand the smell. For some reason though this memoir pulled me right in. A 25 year old Australian girl spending a year in the USA meets a 30 year old man planning to embark on a journey around the world in his used yacht. When the time comes, they are still together and she joins him. It is quite an adventure with some humorous parts and some dangerous ones too.
I actually bought this at The Dollar Tree, the word memoir on the cover got me.Now that I have enjoyed it, I am going to give it away. If you want to be entered in the giveaway just say so in the comments. Books are heavy though so I can only afford to send it to someone in the USA, sorry.
My Spark for the week is: Kindness is free, sprinkle that stuff everywhere.I saw that quote on Pinterest with no author listed. Emmy made a little twist on it.
