Monday Musings ~ March 20, 2023

For those of you in the Northern Hemisphere, Happy Spring Equinox. While ‘Spring’ isn’t fully in evidence in many places, it’s one step moving toward the season of renewal. For those of you buried under mounds of recent snow, we hope today is just the beginning of a shift toward warming days, Spring bulbs and fresh green sprouts. Happy first day of Spring.


Live, love, bark! ๐Ÿพ

    1. You’re so right-not many think smiley things when they’re experiencing winter. They’re too busy looking for their snow shovel. ๐Ÿ˜‡

    1. Ugh, we really hope DST goes away for good this year. Iโ€™m still trying to acclimate and itโ€™s been 3 weeks since our switch.

    1. Hurray for sunshine! Weโ€™ll be in the mid 50Fโ€™s all week. Finally!

  1. That saying is so, so true. I also learned years ago that a kind word, perhaps a sincere compliment, makes even the “I wish I wasn’t here” clerk look at me and smile.

    1. Amen to that! The first day has been cloudy though pleasant temperature wise and the sun should return tomorrow.

  2. Happy spring flowers!! We took our first day of spring visit to Dairy Queen for a pup cup!

    1. Oooh, I like the way you celebrate Springโ€™s arrival. Yum! Soft serve is sooo tasty! ๐Ÿฆ

  3. We don’t have that Spring feeling today, Norman, Elsa and Monika. It’s getting cold again and it rains rains rains…so the only one who’s springing is us…MOL…Great Spark๐ŸŒžDouble Pawkisses for a Happy Week ahead to all of you๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜ฝ๐Ÿ’ž

    1. Happy first day of Spring. Hopefully the snow will go away soon and you can enjoy some spring flowers. ๐Ÿ’

  5. Awww, so precious and I so agree.

    I linked this post to Awww Mondays.

    Have a fabulous day and week. Scritches to the pups, a smooch to Norman and a big hug to mom. โ™ฅ

    1. Happy first day of Spring Sandee. Norman sends his best wishes for a wonderful new season.

  6. A lovely quote to formally enter Spring with…and I have a mind to go outside and lay down in the lawn…but perhaps I’ll just settle for a nice walk instead. Hope your typical March snows are replaced by sunshine this time around!

    1. However you celebrate the first day, may it bring you and those around you, a big smile. Happy Monday, Bruce.

    1. It sure is taking its sweet time arriving, isn’t it? ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ it happens soon.

  7. Most snow gone from the Golden K and dry weather beginning later this week on its way. Whew- what a winter! Bring on Spring and longer days. Oh yeah and baseball! Have a great week at the Ranch.

    1. No doubt you are all rejoicing about things drying out. Hope you have a wonderful Spring baseball season.

  8. AND… not only is it the first day of Spring, it is International Day of Happiness so your lovely image is perfect ๐Ÿ™‚
    Happy Spring Equinox and may you find things that make you happy today!

    1. Thank you, Dale. And to you as well. It’s going to be a good day to find happy (I did not know about the International Day designation-but cool-we need things to celebrate like that). ๐Ÿ’

      1. Thank you. I didn’t I saw a post about photographers sharing images of what they perceive as happy. So I’ve been sharing a few of mine, and will do so all day ๐Ÿ™‚

        1. Excellent! Will look for your pics. You can never have too much happy, right? ๐Ÿฅฐ

  9. Hurray, that IS something to celebrate! Typically March is one of the heaviest snow months but so far, we’ve managed to dodge that bullet. No doubt we’ll rue that in July. Enjoy a sunny day.

  10. Having just had three weeks of rain and thunderstorms I am delighted to see sunshine this morning!
    Washing machine very busy….and no muddy paws to be seen.

Feel free to bark your thoughts...but no growling please.
