Joining Annie’s Sparks at her blog McGuffy’s Reader. She asks that we spread the light of positivity. We can use a quote, poem, thought, or verse. I don’t think she would object to a picture. Read more about her Sparks by clicking on her badge above.

“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like “What about lunch?” ~ A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

I am a lover of food. I find great positive energy in sitting down to good food with a good friend. Friends and food make my heart lighter and there are days that friends and food transform a not so good day into one of the very best!

      1. I thought maybe you had headed South ♥ Picked a great time to go as it was bitter cold here for sure. We have had a couple of good rains lately , Last night gave us 1 and a quarter inches in the rain gauge!!!! Much needed ♥
        Woke up this morning with a sore throat and a cough…. hope the flue hasn’t caught up with me!!!


        1. I got that sore throat, cough, and laryngitis on the first night on the trip. It’s almost gone but it’s trying to hold on,,, the coughing. CH has it now… Oops. Take care of your throat with your tea. CH had to see our GP for an injured knee which happened before the trip and the Dr. told him to just ride out the sneezing, nose blowing, and coughing. Said it takes a bit to get rid of it and that it is going around. CH said there were three peeps in the office with masks on!


  1. Bravo bravo bravo and we all know for 100% that Winnie is the wisest of wise and is an expert in sweets and as we like to say here life is short eat dessert first
    Hugs madi and mom
    Welcome to Monday Sparks Pix


      1. Don’t fret, I can send you the recipe for the beetroot and split pea fritters. Octavia gave them the thumbs up last night, so I am ready to roll them out to the rest of the world!


  2. Oh Pix my friend I’m so happy you are SPARKING with us……..and I would have predicted that your first SPARK would have been special just as it is – Winnie the Pooh never fails to impress me with his wisdom and inspiration. The simple things in life ARE the best – including FOOD of course (!). You know how I feel about a good bacon cheeseburger and THAT impresses me more than some fancy-shmancy meal ANY old day. Add a good friend to giggle with and talk to and you’ve got the PERFECT occasion for sparks.

    Love and Hugs, Pam and Teddy Bean


    1. Yes, I know how you feel about a good bacon cheeseburger and I know how you feel about friends! Pooh’s inspiration says a lot about how to live our life and his view is beautifully simplistic. Friends are the best and inspire us to live our best life… thanks Pam! Hugs to you and The Bean!


  3. I was so happy to see a post from you today. Excellent spark! I feel that way too. As soon as I get in the car with my mom to go shopping, she says where are we having lunch? 🙂 XO


          1. Let me know what you think. You have inspired me to get another copy. I loaned my old, very worn copy to someone and never got it back. There is also The Te of Piglet. It is the simple teachings that stay with us, I believe. Hugs.

  4. Great quote! In a neat, ironic twist I’m reading a book that sat around for ages without being opened called “The Tao of Pooh”. It’s a fun, interesting read. Be well!


Just say "hey"! Say more if you want, that's good too :)
