This week’s Photo Challenge from Cheri at The Daily Post asks us for our interpretation of Sweet.
Looking back at some of my earliest posts on WordPress I came across this one Exercise……There’s Nothing Like It! At the time it remained pretty much unread. It included pictures of some of my favorite foods which featured several sweet treats. If you have a couple of minutes to spare, slide on over there to see how these tasty delights fitted into my daily exercise routine.
As you can no doubt tell, I have a sweet tooth which probably accounts for another post Icing On The Cake that dwelt on the love affair between my family and cake.
No matter how we dress it up or how scary it may look, there is something about cake and all it’s close relations that is just so deliciously hard to resist. The feel, the taste, the smell of all those delectable desserts are too good to pass up and when the call goes out, “Anyone for afters?” the reply is always, “Sweet!”

I’m still getting used to the new Wednesday start day for the Weekly Photo Challenge at The Daily Post so am hurrying to get this one in on time. There were so many images that looked like A Good Match but I’ll quickly share just two that stood out in the old photo files.
What used to be known as ‘elevenses’ in our house; tea and biscuits, preferably with plenty of jam on them. A good match. As the name suggests, this short break from daily activities usually took place around 11am but as the years advance I find that ‘elevenses’ has slowly worked its way forward until now we appear to be enjoying this delightful repast somewhere between 8:30 and 9am.
Two people who obviously enjoyed making beautiful music together; Violinist Oliver Colbentson and his accompanist. A good match.

The Weekly Photo Challenge from the folks on The Daily Post at http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/11/08/weekly-photo-challenge-habit/ is Habit. I wish I could write something deep and meaningful for this but all I can think about is food!
Why break the habit of almost a lifetime; tea and toast for breakfast.
Followed closely by coffee and biscuits or elevenses as we used to call it back home, although, as the years have gone by, this habit has gradually worked its way forward to sometimes as early as 9am in our house.
Somewhere between lunch and dinner is tea time. Truthfully I’m more likely to eat the candy bar than the apple, although usually for candy read biscuits, or cookies as they’re called here in the US.
Contrary to what the placemat says, this is not strawberries but spotted dick. Another habit of a lifetime, eating dessert with and, on more than one occasion instead of, dinner. Probably a bad habit, especially when it’s something like treacle pudding or jam roly-poly.
