SPARKS and a Reminder


Monday means sharing a SPARK with each other.   Something that SPARKS the imagination, SPARKS a feeling, SPARKS a memory, SPARKS creativity – gets you going for the beginning of the week.    What exactly IS this Monday SPARK thing we do?   Well, most of you know that Annie of McGuffy’s Reader – who started SPARKS – was hacked and has been on an extended break from blogging although her idea to spread some inspiration on Monday of every week goes on.   Many of us who participated in her SPARKS Blog Hop and found value in sharing a thought on Monday continue doing that to hopefully give each other a “Monday boost” – perhaps something to think about to inspire us in the week ahead OR help us deal with something that’s on our mind.    Why not join us by sharing something that SPARKS you?   It might just start a spark in us too.

My SPARK image today is just a little different – it’s not really meant to inspire you (or me) so much as to share a thought about something many of us think is an irritation – a rainy day – or a series of them……..rain, rain, go away, come again another day.   Remember that?    Well, I happen to be one of those people who actually LOVES a rainy day.   Not necessarily a WEEK of rain or several days in a row without ANY sign of the sun though!    This image and quote really just says it perfectly about how I feel about these WET days………


I think this kind of sums up the thing many people say about rainy days – that they are COZY………….do they  mean “like a blanket” ??   For me that’s just what it’s like………………….Mr. Coupland just said it for me in his quote!

Enjoy your Monday and your week and should you have rain – just think of it as a nice warm blanket or sweater…..or a HUG!

Love, Pam

    • At least you didn’t have rain for your TEST with the burds out in the field – it would have made it worse if it’d been a big muddy mess! We had rain all day yesterday….it was nice – fire in the fireplace for the first time this year too!

  1. Okey dokey, now this is something weird about my mom! She has a special pair of blue jeans, she calls them her Rainy Day Jeans. She found them in the back of closet a few years ago. That are just a tiny bit big, ergo…loose and comfy. They are also just a bit too long. She can’t remember when or where they came from. When she’s at home, or has just gotten home for somewhere in the Outside, and wants/needs to feel cozy and comfy and warm, she puts them on, with a pair of her fuzzy “bed socks.” It’s kind of like wearing a security blankie for Mom. Makes her enjoy those dreary, rain filled days!!
    Chip Hauckcat. Love you Teddy and Mom Pam!!


    • Interesting! My Mom tends to have her “comfort clothes” too and breaks them out when we have a rainy day. I figure I have my rainy day/sunny day/any day fur coat on and am comfy in any weather!!!

      Love, Teddy


  2. We have had a years worth of rain in less than half a year, so I’ll not miss the benefits of rain for a while now. 🙂 But your spark was right on!


    • I’m with you about the outside on a rainy day thing……Mom is nice enough to hold the umbrella over BOTH of us but some part of me always sticks out (!!) and I get wet. Not a fan of SOAKING WET either!

      Hugs, Teddy


  3. After such a long time without rain, Mom isn’t surprised that she and Mom Pam chose a Spark about rain. Mom likes it for a day or two, but then she needs the sun back or she gets really down. We are supposed to have another day of rain again tomorrow. Sending lots of love and hugs.

    • Uhoh…..we had that about a month ago – it just got more and more dry around here and grass, trees, everything was slowly dying – since then we have had decent rainfall and it’s helping us have a NICE Fall!

      Hugs, Pam
