high noon

It’s noon time today, and I am out on one of my favorite tasks, the walking of my dog.   I haven’t seen  the sun shining so beautifully in like forever; this just makes me think of spring in all its glory.

The weather is beautiful… and spring has finally blossomed once again.

I was so excited Saturday morning, the beginning of the weekend, when my husband and I went off to Dunkin Donuts to pick up some cronuts for ourselves and our houseguests.
If you have not before heard of a cronut, it is just a simple twist on the croissaint and being shaped like a donut with a delicious honey glaze.  I took a bite, and I think it wpid-20150404_123239.jpgmust be something sinful!  I pick it apart, because (duh!) it has layers, its a croissaint, but not like one, because its sweet like a donut.

Let me tell you about these cronuts,  they had peeps- yes, those little marshmallow puffs of sugar coated artificially colored deliciousness on top of them!!  Talk about a major WOW factor!

Taking our dog Chazz out on a walk that morning, was yet again beautiful signs of spring… green buds emerging from the twigs that have managed to make it through the winter.  I mean, it IS already April, there should be signs of spring, all around us, only those darn cherry blossoms on the Tidal basin in Washington DC have not yet emerged!  Which is a terrible predicament to be in,  as the cherry blossom festival is on this Saturday April 11.  I feel somewhat responsible as a Northern Virginian resident for nearly 3 1/2 decades [born and raised!]

We may wonder and be upset over the weather, but Mother Nature has ways which are unknown… and the best things are worth waiting for!
