Spring Forward...

The clock sprung forward to daylight savings time yesterday, and there's only 8 days until spring officially arrives.  The stores all have their Easter/Spring décor displayed, and I found two cute bunny plates at Marshall's recently, and am searching for two more.  At $3.99 each, the 222 Fifth porcelain dishes in the pattern, "Bunny Party" are a deal.  They come in pink and blue too, but I like yellow best.

My granddaughter, Brianna, was home all last week on spring break from college. I took her to lunch on Saturday at one of her favorite restaurants - Panera Bread.


They have a great Greek salad with Quinoa Tomato Sofrito blend, Romaine, Kale, diced Cucumbers and Kalamata Olives tossed in Greek dressing and topped with Feta Cheese and toasted Almonds. It was so good, and definitely one to recreate at home.  I enjoyed a glass of hot Ginger Peach Black Tea with it [by Republic of Tea].

The forecast yesterday was only a high of 30 degrees in southeastern Michigan, but the sun was shining, and I'm antsy to get outdoors and back to a consistent walking regime.

What's it like where you live?


  1. First - those bunny plates are darling, and I hope you can find the additional ones you want. I know you enjoyed time with your college granddaughter. Weather here? Well, it's been warm and things have started blooming, daffodils are about done and fruit trees are opening up. Last Thursday and Friday it was 72 degrees, then Saturday it turned cooler and Saturday night it snowed, 2-3 inches of wet snow that was gorgeous but didn't stick to the warm roads, and was melted by Sunday afternoon. Tomorrow we may get more snow and Weds temps will go down into the teens again! March weather is fickle around here.

  2. Mmm ... makes me want to head to Panera, and since I received some Panera gift cards as a thank-you following the ladies' tea last week, I believe I shall! Your new bunny plates are so cheerful and should help you survive winter. I was already quite accustomed to the seventy-degree temperatures we'd been having, but today it's back in the forties and drizzling. Brrrr!
