McGuffy’s who was hosting the Sparks is on hiatus, we are going to keep posting them anyway!  She says “I truly do 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. There is hope. Together, we can light up the entire world!

Mes knows it is a special holiday here in Canada and the US but Worker’s Day is May 1 in most of the rest of the world. If yous lives elsewhere, does yous guys has a holiday this weekend too?
Mommy has been reading the great Canadian Classic – Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery (in 1908).  Mommy liked this book when she was little as she had red hair and a stellar imagination. When Mommy was looking for a special quote that she could only remembers part of, she discovered it was from the Anne Books and a voyage of rediscovery has begun.

That is why she picked this quote this week, “I believe that the nicest and sweetest of days are not those which anything splendid or wonderful or exciting happened, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another, like pearls slipping off a string.” by Lucy Maud Mongomery.

Mes, Nellie Bellie, believes this too and mes trys to reminds Mommy and Marv of this eah and every day! Does yous have simple pleasures that brings yous delight?

Now peoples always complains about Jam, they think there is too much sugar in it… Sugar does a whole bunch more than make your jam sweet. Its main function is to works with the pectin and fruit acids to MAKES the gel structure wes calls jam. Sugar acts as a preservative that helps maintain the beautiful color of the fruit and inhibits mold growth.

And yous knows, there really is not a whole lot of calories in a tablespoonful of jam (there is usually 50 calories) and a whole tablespoon will does 2 pieces of toast! With plain yogurt, it add less calories than the stuff they put in to make it fruity. And with homemade, yous knows there is no other junk in there! Which leads mes to this….
