Sunrise To Sunset

I will follow my God from sunrise to sunset.
I will set my eyes upon Him.

Glimpses of my week
with a lot of goodness.

Greek food, wine and dancing .... so good!!!

goodness, too?



  1. I took a picture of this same moon two nights ago but couldn't get as close a zoom as you did. Love the pics, and see's chocolate, and Greek food!!!

  2. Dear Dottie, I had a See's chocolate once and it was sooo GOOD! Yummy! Just thinking about it is makig me dizzy..hurry! I need another..
    I love your pictures..

  3. You write about some lovely moments and things during your week. My dh and I love Greek food and festivals and attend our local festival twice each year.

  4. The Greek food looks delicious. I like the way you summarize your week and take note of things.

  5. Beautiful week, Dottie! I could take a few lessons from you! =) blessings ~ tanna

  6. Oh Dottie, you did have a wonderful week.
    I love, love greek food. There isn't anywhere to eat greek around here. Yum! And the sangria.........

  7. Thank you for coming by my place and leaving a sweet comment. I think you have a beautiful life, too! I'm drooling over the pictures of your garden, and the Greek food. And the dancing, how fun! And the moon has been simply gorgeous lately.

    I hope you're staying cool today!



  8. You are teaching me to recognize the good in my life, thank you for this! Your week sounds perfect!

  9. Yum! FOOOD!!
    White blouse with jeans is my favorite way of dress!
    I never thought of a flag like that!!!

    I will be sure to keep you in my prayers :)

  10. you did have a wonderful week
    thank you for sharing
    great pictures
    you make me want to enjoy
    things out of my comfort zone!

  11. Hi, Dottie! Just popped over from Tina's blog to tell you that you are in my prayers.

  12. I just sent you a comment but it seems to have disappeared. I think you would enjoy the book. It is a page turner and is entertaining and at the same time sort of eye-opening, depending on where you grew up. It's neither sad nor happy I don't think and you do become attached to certain characters. It takes place in Jackson, MS in the 60s. You probably would do better reading the book if you can, before seeing the movie. :-)

  13. Love the photo of the moon. I took one a few nights ago when it was just a sliver, but I really like your close up shot.

    And the first garden salsa....well, it doesn't get much better than that.

  14. Oooooo, nice post, Dottie. You had fun, fun, fun at the Greek festival. And that Greek food, well, yummy yum yum. Thanks for sharing. Susan
