Spring Where Are You

Spring where are you?
 Quit teasing me!!

For a few days we had springtime weather.
I opened my windows
 hung my linens on the clothesline to dry in the soft breeze.
It was heavenly
sometime during the night
it flitted away like a butterfly
winter returned!!!

Oh Well!!!

I am learning to live in the moment
at this moment

I am puppy dog sitting the most charming little Yorkie
while his mommy is out of town!
He is has been the very best of company.
Maybe I will just keep him!!
Just kidding.......

I have been feeling so chilled since the weather turned
so damp and dreary again.
My Grandmother used to tell me when I was a child
she was chilled to the bone!
I always wondered what she meant .
 Now I think I know!
I thought I would feel this way the rest of winter
a friend took me to dinner at Shamiana.
The moment I opened the door I felt instantly warmed
the colors, aromas and music
I promise Indian food will keep you warm for days!
I may have to go there every day!

I have been thinking about this scripture in

Ecclesiastes 3:1

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:

Shamiana (wedding tents)

very warm fish curry 

I have also been thinking about this scripture

Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

I may need to lean upon the strength of this scripture
help me through this season of winter!!!


  1. Weather people just said for us to expect a spring like week ahead. Wooohooooo. Benji is to cute.

  2. Adorable doggie, I can see you might want to keep him. We ate at a local Indian restaurant this weekend where we always choose the vegetarian buffet. Yum.

  3. It has been such a strange winter with no pattern, I stick my head out the door in my pjs each morning to get an idea of what to wear. My sweaters have barely been used,. But I did enjoy the cold and rain yesterday.

  4. I focus on those exact two scriptures... and I knit. ;) The Indian food looks wonderful! So glad you enjoyed the 911 soup. ;) blessings and hugs ~ tanna

  5. I hope that sunshine breaks out soon! It really does energize me! I've started a new venture on my blog! I hope you can stop by...I could use your encouragement! Thanks! ♥♥♥

  6. I love curry, wish i had some. Thanks for stopping by and giving me such a sweet comment. have a beautiful day. Richard from My Old Historic House.

  7. Sweet post Dottie....ahhhh...Indian Food.....I have friends who go to an Indian Buffet EVERY Sunday.....a little too much spice for me but I do like the occasional Bangan Barta. (sp)


  8. Sweet puppy! Does she miss her family?
    I've noticed that I feel chilled too and it's not that cold out. Seems like after a warm day cool feels so cold!

  9. ohhh such a lovely post dreaming of spring time. Please scratch Benji behind the ears for me. Thank you for linking up to the Thursday Favorite Things blog hop linky party xo

  12. Benji is adorable. I am puppy sitting for my son. Our granddog is a daschund and a real treat.
    Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed Roy Rogers and Dale Evans. My dog as a child was named "Trigger". Not Bullet but trigger. Guess I was really wishing for a horse.
    Have a great weekend, Ginger
