SPARK on Monday

Standard

It’s Monday again and you know what that means right?   Time for a SPARK – a message that will get you through the week or at the very least give you something to think about!  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.

I found this quote from Albert Einstein by accident…………….but maybe it wasn’t such an accident after all?   Maybe I needed to get the message?   Maybe you do too?

I actually have HEARD this quote before but had no idea it was by Albert Einstein.    He was a VERY smart man!     Have a super week……………….keep on moving……………………I will too.

Hugs, Pam,

Friendly Friday Fill-Ins

Standard

Happy Friday!!   Time to HOP with our co-hosts and do some filling in of blanks.  Each of our co-hosts gives us TWO sentences with “holes” and we just fill the holes in however we want to – it’s a super fun way to get to know more about each other – there are ALWAYS surprises but also ALWAYS a lot of fun.   If you would like to HOP with us – click the badge above which will take you to 15andmeowing where you can LINK UP!

Here are our FOUR sentences for this week with our fill-ins.   Mom and I shared fill-in duty this Friday.    If the words are my Mom’s they are in GREEN but if they are my own words, they are in ORANGE!

 

1. One word to describe my week is WET – after the storm moved through more rain has arrived – it’s either TOO MUCH or TOO LITTLE here!.
2. My biggest success has been getting more outside time since Mom and Dad are staying at home just about all the time – WOO HOO.
3. Not to brag, but I can run fast as lightning to chase a wabbit or bird – even at 22 lbs. I’m FAST and FURIOUS!.
4. For me, contentment is the meaning of life.

So there you have it – our filling in exercise for this week for which we THANK our co-hosts!    It sure is fun reading everyone else’s fill-ins too.   We continue to be fine at my house – so far we don’t know anyone who has the virus so everyone we know is staying safe.   PLEASE DO THE SAME………WE CARE ABOUT YOU!

Love, Teddy and Mom

Thankful and Poetic Thursday

Standard

Hello!   Welcome to Thursday.    Thursday is THANKFUL DAY and it’s also the day we play around with poetry with Angel Sammy.     First up we must be very thankful because we were extremely lucky with the Tropical Storm that blew up the coast yesterday and day before – we had a whole lot of rain but no tornadoes or damaging winds.    Many were not that lucky so we SHOULD be very thankful.    Hope all of you were that lucky too.

Angel Sammy’s email is below and he shares not just the poem he wrote for this week based on last week’s photo but gives us all a photo inspiration for NEXT Thursday too!     Ready?

♥♥♥

YAY – It’s Thursday – Time For Poetry!

Hello friends…………..greetings from the Rainbow Bridge.    We Angels have been keeping an eye on things down there and it seems there’s a whole lot going on that we are unable to help you with.   Particularly that nasty virus – you all will have to just do your best to follow the rules because some things we can help with and others you must help yourselves………OK?

Now let’s talk poetry.    Last week I gave you (and me) a photo to use as inspiration for a poem and below you’ll find MY humble effort.    I hope you wrote one too and if you did, tell us that in comments so we can read it and enjoy it.    Poetry is a lot of fun and particularly if we’re all looking at the SAME photo and seeing different things – imagination is a wonderful thing!

“Lady In The Mist”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell        ©August 5, 2020

 

The hounds guard the lady from every direction

Her gown moves in the breeze with sheer perfection

She waits in the mist for her love to arrive

The anticipation is building and the woods are alive

In the distance the sound of hooves faintly heard

Her heart beats so fast as she whispers one word

“Antonio” she says as her heart skips a beat

His black stallion arrives and their eyes and hearts meet…………..

 

Yeah kinda “mushy” isn’t it.    Well I couldn’t help myself – even a cat has romantic feelings and thoughts you know!    I found out that back in “the day” royalty would always ride with dogs alongside to provide protection.    I thought these dogs in the photo were keeping an eye in all directions for danger.   Very cool.

So I have another photo for you to use as next week’s poetic inspiration…………..here it is!

 

Another bit of nostalgia……………..thought this one might be a fun one and bring back some memories to some of you too (like my Mom!).     So we’ll get together next Thursday and see what we’ve come up for this one OK?   OK – it’s a date!

Have a good week until then………….stay safe………………….do the RIGHT things for YOU and for those around you………………..

I am the Angel Poet in the green beret…..and I hope you join me for POETIC FUN each week!

Hugs, Angel Sammy

♥♥♥

Always makes me happy to hear from you Angel Sammy.    Thanks for the poem and for visiting all of us every week.    I’m sending you and special hug from me and Mom!

Love, Teddy

In Purrrrsuit of Flavours

Standard

Hello Friends!    We know we give you a recipe every Saturday but today we’re joining someone else’s recipe share – our buddies at Canadian Cats AND Easy Weimaraner.     It’s a Blog Hop so if you’d like to share a recipe (this month’s recipe is supposed to be something EASY TO MAKE and LIGHT for the Summer), just click on the badge above and add your blog address to the LINKY FORM!!

My suggestion for an EASY PEASY and incredibly refreshing summer meal is a FRESH TOMATO SALAD…………………doesn’t get any easier than this.    Mom uses either regular sized farmer’s market tomatoes OR even the little tiny tomatoes which have even more concentrated tomato flavor.    My Mom will often have just THIS for dinner.   Yes she’s a tomato freak.

INGREDIENTS:

4 medium tomatoes cubed (OR a big handfull or two of tiny tomatoes if you prefer)

1 clove crushed garlic

Thinly sliced onion (however much you like)

2 Tablespoons chopped fresh basil

 

Mix everything together – stick in the refrigerator for a while as it “marinates” the flavors and VOILA – the easiest meal EVER!!!!

 

Hugs, Teddy

 

SPARK on Monday

Standard

Happy Monday!   Time to SPARK together!    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.

I’ve been thinking a WHOLE lot about patience lately.    Sometimes I think I’m running out of it – sometimes I’m amazed at how much of it I have.   Somewhere in the middle is where I want to be.    This quote speaks to me………maybe it will speak to you too??

We’re all ready to get our “old” lives back but maybe even BETTER……..maybe we will have learned something after this is over……….maybe we will be rewarded for our PATIENCE??

Happy Monday!   Hugs, Pam
