I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!

    Hi Ramona,

    Wow, you must REALLY love that Magellan after such mayhem and chaos! I couldn’t believe the fate of your pretty lamp! Funnily enough, I’ve linked a post about our own feline, Prince Richard, who just happens to be his own publicist!

    Thanks for hosting and have a wonderful week!


    • Poppy I can’t wait to read about Prince Richard – I’m sure that’s an apt name for your precious feline!
      And yes, Magellan has really worked his magic on us – although I must admit, I was a tad cross the day he destroyed my lamp!
