Reminder: I am going on a blogging break for about a week. Because I moderate comments and plan to avoid the computer as much as possible, it may take a day or two for your comment to show up. But, I will approve comments and reply, eventually.
I leave you with a quote from Peace is Every Step by Thich Nhat Hanh:
Everything we do is an act of poetry or a painting if we do it with mindfulness. Growing lettuce is poetry. Walking to the supermarket can be a painting.
Have a happy week!

Aw, what a sweetie!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Kathy. She is such a love. :)Delete
Awww...looking at kitties always makes me feel better!ReplyDelete
Wahoo! Same here. Love kitty pics! :)Delete
She is adorable! I love the quote that you included too. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Alyce! Isn't that quote awesome? I need to frame that. Love the way he makes the everyday sound so joyful.Delete
That looks like a perfectly grand napping place to me!ReplyDelete
Well, it would have been. I have a tendency to pester the cats, just when they've found the perfect place. I actually got under the table for a bit and the light streaming through that tablecloth was just beautiful! So tranquil.Delete
Awww, cute pictures!ReplyDelete
I love the quote, too. How interesting to think of the everyday things we do as something more extraordinary, which oftentimes they can be.
Have a lovely break!
Isn't that a wonderful quote? I'm definitely going to have to read more by Thich Nhat Hanh. He does have a gift for making even everyday things like washing dishes or sitting at traffic lights sound like gifts.
We humans are SO mean! ;) I comfort myself by considering the bad nights of sleep I've had because of my cat when I'm interrupting her nap.ReplyDelete
LOL Yes, I know exactly what you mean. They tend to interrupt our sleep so . . . payback! Except, we're really just so crazy about them that we have to find them where they sleep to make sure they're okay and give them a tiny rub because they're so darn cute. There's just no getting around those 5 AM wake-up calls, though, is there?Delete
She is too cute thinking that she is hiding! I love your kitty!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Zibilee! She's really quite good at finding hiding places. Yesterday, she wrapped herself up in a bedspread after I stripped a bed to start the washing, the little furry nut. She's such fun.Delete
Enjoy your break....painting, sketching, breathing, reading, walking, singing. You will be creative with every moment, I'm sure. Stay safe!ReplyDelete
Well . . . reading and singing, anyway. Probably there are at least two cats and two humans who would like me to shush. ;)
Love the kitty picture and tablecoth! Great quote, too. Have a lovely bloggy break!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Les! Hope your weather improves and you have a terrific week!Delete
Your cats must be the most adorable around. Just saying.ReplyDelete
Well, I think so but I'm obviously biased. :)Delete
What fun! I wish my cats did more than just lay there for photos. LOL Enjoy your break!ReplyDelete
I'm lucky I have such crazy-active felines. They really are extraordinarily entertaining (and pretty photogenic, too). Thanks! I'm book purging. It's a job-and-a-half but it's nice to step away from the computer, now and then. :)
