SPARKS, Blog for Peace and Reminder



It’s Monday and time for a SPARK!   It’s a special Monday too because it’s also BLOG FOR PEACE with Mimi Lenox and we have participated for several years in this global effort to “Give Peace A Chance”.

First though – what exactly IS this Monday SPARK thing we do?   Well, most of you know that Annie of McGuffy’s Reader – who started SPARKS – was hacked and has been on an extended break from blogging although her idea to spread some inspiration on Monday of every week goes on.   Many of us who participated in her SPARKS Blog Hop and found value in sharing a thought on Monday continue doing that to hopefully give each other a “Monday boost” – perhaps something to think about to inspire us in the week ahead OR help us deal with something that’s on our mind.    Why not join us by sharing something that SPARKS you?   It might just start a spark in us too.

I love Fall but it’s the actual CHANGES Fall brings that make me love it so much………………The trees that surround our house and the countryside where we live remind me every year that if THEY can let things go, so can we.    And really – why not?    Carrying things – especially anything negative – just plain WEIGHS YOU DOWN!

Also today it’s the annual Blog For Peace Day – want to know about this wonderful effort Mimi Lenox heads up every year?    CLICK HERE

This year’s Theme is Blog for Climate Change………………one of those subjects people like to ignore but is becoming more and more “undeniable” as years go by!    Anyway, if you want more information on how to join up for this year’s effort – up to and including getting a free template to design YOUR way to express your thoughts just click the link above.    Here’s our Peace Globe which I am sending to Mimi.

“Seeing Mother Earth makes our hearts happy…..Seeing her in danger because of climate change makes our hearts sad….Let’s DO something to STAY HAPPY.”     Teddy and I agree…….


Speaking of Teddy, he wants all of you to remember that tomorrow is TEASER TUESDAY – at a surprise time – we will have a photo for you to figure out as usual on a Tuesday.   Oh boy!!

Love, Pam and Teddy too

    • We need our battery power to have fun don’t we boys? Nature is beginning to do a lot of snoozing around here too – leaves are still coming down but it’s in the 20s in the morning – THAT’S COLD!

      Hugs, Teddy


    • Hope you have a wonderful day too………Fall is our most favorite time of the year! Spring is next favorite – maybe it’s the “coming” and “going” of those seasons that makes us love them so.

      Hugs, Teddy and Mom


  1. Another wonderful spark and I so agree. Letting go of thing can be healing and good. Anything we can do for peace and our climate I am all for. Teddy, I love the picture of you sitting in your Mom’s lap. It makes me smile.

    • I am SO glad that your LadyMew “got” that SPARK…..letting go is like the most FREEING feeling in the world. Guilt weighs us down and doesn’t allow us to be open to feeling things we’ve been “blocked” from feeling. I’m so happy that she understood the SPARK and believe me, she will be glad she DID.

      Love and Hugs, Teddy

  3. What a terrific Spark. I’d never thought of fall that way previously, but now I will. Very nice Peace Globe as well. We are always happy to see how many participate in BlogBlast for Peace. Love to all, Janet and Kitties Blue


  4. I love your peace globe……….and am so sorry your friend’s blog got hacked. That is terrible, especially when it happens to people doing positive things in the blogosphere. Sigh.


    • We were so sorry about the creator of SPARKS – it shouldn’t happen to anyone but it happened to her so we’re carrying on the SPARK idea. It sure worked well with the Peace Globes this year didn’t it! Two inspiring things on one day. We were so happy to be part of it. Thanks for visting us!!

      Hugs, Teddy and Mom Pam


  5. A beautiful SPARK today friends. We have never liked fall because it heralds in Winter….a damnable season up here. No walks no lazily gardening, just hustling our butts from place to place. However, fall does let go of its older leaves and s refreshed by the snow. We have never thought of it this way…..a great way to accept fall.

    Your blog 4 peace is right on Teddy.



    • We aren’t looking forward to full on winter either – it can be pretty – quiet mornings after a light snow, etc…….BUT none of us are fans of day after day of COLD COLD COLD. Guess we have no choice – and who knows – maybe it will be a MILD winter. Glad you liked our SPARK today!

      Hugs, Teddy
