It must look like we're having lots of sunshine. Maybe it looks like we've finally reached the season known as Spring. We wish. Our Easter Sunday was all shades of snowy, and that is no April Fool's joke. Evan wasn't all that impressed.
We're holding on to hope, though. Spring has to be out there somewhere!
Now we're moving on to the second day of the A to Z Challenge.
Today, we're at the letter B. As we've shared before, for this round of the A to Z Challenge we're putting animal-inspired twists on the titles of classic stories, and then creating little doodles for these new titles. Today, we went with Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, but of course changed it to Brave Mew World.
To be totally honest, I have never read Brave New World, and when did a bit of research, I found out that its plot is nothing like what I thought. I quite honestly thought it was a historical fiction revolving around the time of colonization in America. I was wrong. Very, very, embarrassingly wrong. Brave New World is actually a dystopian novel addressing concepts such as artificial life. Hence the robo-kitty in the doodle above.
And since we're on the topic of Brave New World, I chose a quote from this novel for this week's Sparks blog hop.
This hop, hosted by Annie of McGuffy's Reader, is a wonderful way for us to share positive thoughts in this often negative world. So, here's our positive thought for this week:
"Never put off till tomorrow the fun you can have today."
-Aldous Huxley (Brave New World)
Don't forget to have some fun today! Happy Monday!
Our Tip of the Day:
April is Heartworm Awareness Month. For the next couple of days, therefore, we're going to repeat some heartworm tips that we gave a couple months ago. So, these tips may sound familiar, but we've decided to share them again for this significant month.
We'll start simple and remind you all that heartworms come from mosquitoes, and a dog or cat can become infected if they are bit by a mosquito carrying larvae. This can occur in either indoor or outdoor furbabies. For indoor animals, you can try to keep all windows and doors closed, in hopes to prevent mosquito entry into the house. However, they can enter through cracks, or simply when you open the door to enter or exit. What’s more, it is possible for mosquitoes to be out and about year round, even in the winter. For this reason, our first, very significant tip is to simply ensure that you keep your dogs and cats on preventatives that include heartworm coverage, and that you do this year round.
