Monday Sparks

 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.


We like this one a lot!!

Caturday Cat Art

 We're joining Athena's Caturday Art Blog Hop


We used Reesie's Wordless Wednesday photo for today's artwork.  We used the crystal ball effect from Super Photo.  We must like this one because we realized afterwards and we did similar artwork with Noelle back in 2020!  We added a frame with Pizap.


We also did a puzzle for you!

Poetic Thankful Thursday

 Today is Poetic Thursday hosted by our pals Teddy and Angel Sammy at Two Spoiled Cats



Today's photo prompt is

Two Couples

They meet for coffee every week
They say some things with tongue in cheek.
You never know what might come out.
You need to be easygoing and not pout.
Each says something that's outrageous.
We think the fun is contagious!

Today is also Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!


We have TWO Teaser thankfuls today.  Mom was one of FIVE firsties AND the first right guesser.  She won this cute badge for us!

The Adventures of Periwinkle and Stinky

 

As always, Periwinkle woke up early that morning knowing that it was Tuesday and that was the day her boyfriend Stinky came to her house to have an adventure together.  Suddenly the tunnel shook and Periwinkle heard the familiar WOOOSH.  Stinky tumbled out into Periwinkle's paws and the two giggled and shared whisker kisses and paw pats.


"Boy, your weather is a lot nicer than ours is" said Stinky.  Periwinkle laughed and said she thought it was a bit cold.  Stinky said the temperature at Periwinkle's house was about 30 degrees warmer than at his place.  "I'm a Florida kitty and we're kind of weather wimps," said Periwinkle.  Stinky said he didn't care, he loved her anyway which made her blush but smile.  "You're so big and strong to be able to take that cold weather," said Periwinkle.  Now it was his turn to blush and, so she wouldn't see it, he asked what their adventure was going to be to change the subject.

"This is the 20th Anniversary of Harry Potter and I thought it would be fun to go to Harry Potter World at Universal in Orlando today.  There's even a movie, Return to Hogwarts.   Here's the trailer"


After watching the trailer, the two couldn't wait to visit so they hopped back into the Teleportation Tunnel, set the coordinates, and off they went!

They landed at Diagon Alley and spent some time walking around and taking in all the cool storefronts.

They both gasped when they saw the dragon at the top of the building.  Stinky joked that he should climb up there to hang out with the dragon.


All of a sudden they heard a sound and held onto each other because the dragon was breathing FIRE.  "Whoa, that was a close one!  I'm glad I didn't go up there.  I would be TOASTED Stinky" said Stinky.

After that scare, the two held paws as they strolled down the street.  They stopped at the wand shop and were amazed at how many types of wands there were.  Periwinkle said she wished she could find the wand that would stop Stinky's seizures.  He agreed that a wand like that would be wonderful.


Walking a little more they spotted Hagrid's Motorbike Adventure and, of course, had to hop on for a ride.


From there, they headed over to the rollercoaster.


After the rides, they were both thirsty so they stopped into Three Broomsticks for a drink and a snack and a little rest.


After their drinks, they decided to find Platform 9-3/4 and take a ride on the Hogwarts Express.





They agreed this was a lot more soothing than the rollercoaster and motorbike rides!

Always thinking of their Moms, they looked for the gift shop to find something to bring them.  All of a sudden Periwinkle said "OMC, Stinky....LOOK"  They both shared a good laugh when they saw the poster!


They finally reached the gift shop and spent some time checking everything out.  Stinky couldn't help himself and went up to the top to see if he could find anything special.




Neither one had enough green papers to buy the statue of Hedwig and they thought it  might not be a good idea since their fursibs might think it was real.
They decided on bracelets for their Moms.


Soon it was time to get back into the Teleportation Tunnel and head back to Periwinkle's house.  They spent some time visiting with Periwinle's fursibs and gave her Mom the bracelet which she loved.  After some whisker kisses and paw pats, Stinky climbed back into the Teleportation Tunnel to head home.

Periwinkle found a sun puddle and took a nap, dreaming of her handsome boyfriend and wondering where they would go next.
