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 must 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!
