The Adventures of Periwinkle and Stinky

 

Periwinkle paced back and forth in front of the Teleportation Tunnel waiting for her boyfriend, Stinky, to arrive.  She was always nervous that something would mess up in the Tunnel (like when his brofur Raleigh was in it) and he would end up somewhere else.   After a few minutes, she heard the familiar WOOSH and out popped Stinky right into her paws.   They spent time whisker kissing and paw patting.  Stinky asked how Periwinkle's fursib Raz was doing and Periwinkle said he was doing great.  He was a good boy and let her Mom give him his meds without a fight.

Once again, Stinky asked excitedly if they would see the manatees.  Periwinkle said it had been pretty warm and there were still no manatees at their favorite spot.  He looked disappointed but was always happy spending time with his girlfriend.

Periwinkle surprised him by handing him a rose to wear and she popped on a rose headband.  Slightly confused, but always wanting to please Periwinkle, he put on the rose.  
"You sure look pretty in your rose headband," said Stinky.  Periwinkle blushed and thanked him.  She thought he looked pretty handsome with his rose too.  "Today is Rose Day and the start of Valentine's Week.  I thought it would be fun to tell our fans about this week," said Periwinkle.

Periwinkle had her Mom's laptop set up on the table and she pulled up some sites to tell him more about Rose Day and Valentine's Week.



"Here are some ways to celebrate Rose Day" said Periwinkle. “What is in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Yes, it does not matter if we do not call a rose by its name, it will do its work, and it will sweeten your atmosphere around. This bloom is the symbol of love, purity, respect and peace.

If you offer a single rose to someone, that represents you are thanking that special person being in your life. If someone presents you a bunch of red roses, that means that certain someone wants a special corner in your heart. It is a silent “I love you” without uttering a word, the rose builds the bridge between two souls whose hearts are beating pounding for love.  (Stinky blushed at this knowing she just gave HIM a rose!)

Rose is the only kind by which people can pour their hearts out with their feelings. From the ancient time, this blossom has been enthroned as an emblem for deep love, peace, affection, appreciation, admiration and many more human emotions.

You can also give a rose to friends, a yellow rose is the  symbol for friendship. By giving a yellow rose you can win a lovely smile on your friends’ faces.

Don’t forget your lovely parents who gave you a chance to live this beautiful life by adopting you. Give them a white rose which signifies purity and peace, and tells them you are soulfully grateful towards them."

Stinky was impurressed by what Periwinkle had found.  "What about the rest of the week? he asked" 

They both giggled when they saw Propose Day and then again when they saw Teddy Day. Stinky asked "Should we go visit our pal Teddy on Friday?" 

Both tabbies agreed that they could use a snack and Stinky gasped when he saw the way Periwinkle decorated their favorite snack spot.


After they finished their Fancy Feast, they decided they should get some roses for their Moms.  Fortunately, they could do online ordering and the roses arrived before Stinky had to leave.

Soon it was time for Stinky to head back home.  He thanked Periwinkle for another fun Adventure and they both said they were looking forward to next week's Adventure.  With a WOOOSH, Stinky with his paws full of roses, headed back home.

Periwinkle went to find her fursibs and to have a nice nap dreaming of her handsome boyfriend.

Monday Sparks

Today's Spark:



Even though McGuffy's reader is taking a break, we are continuing our Monday Sparks posts!  From the original Sparks posts:
Welcome to Sparks. Many years ago, it was my intent to post an inspirational thought each Monday. It would be my weekly meditation, and perhaps feed other people's spirit as well. Life got busy, and this fell by the wayside. Now, I feel a strong need to bring this feature back. 
The negative energy in the world has become thick and oppressive. Social media has become a part of this dark, negative storm. There is an obvious universal need for more positive energy and peace. And, we can all be part of this affirmative change. 
I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!
I hope you will join us. Please link up a positive quote, thought, poem, or verse. The badge and code can be found in my sidebar. Add the badge to your post to invite others. The more, the merrier. I welcome your thoughts. Peace.

Wordy Wednesday

 


Today, Raz is taking part in the February Challenge!


I want to thank all my pals who have been asking how I am doing.  I had my ultrasound last Thursday and they have no definitive results.  I could have IBD or I could have lymphoma.  My Mom chose not to do the invasive test for lymphoma.  We are treating me with steroids, Cerenia for nausea and vomiting and Mirataz for appetite.  They also gave me a B-12 shot and ran a blood test to check my B-12 levels.  My level was low so Mom is going to start giving me B-12 shots weekly.  MOL pray for her!! I am doing great and have not had a hork fest which makes Mom very happy.  One of my Cat Scouts friends has the same "diagnosis" and is doing very well two years later so I hope to follow her example!!!
