A Good Start

Have you ever had one of those days where you wake up and everything just seems out of sync?  Monday was one of those days for me.  It was obvious that my co-workers were feeling that way too because 4 of  them and I each decided before we arrived at the office that what was needed were several kinds of baked goods to put the day on track.  Two of us even stopped at the same place near our office. (Panera Bakery).
For me, nothing helps to put a day in the right direction better than a cheese danish.
Or a Dunkin-donut....
And of course for me, nothing ends a cold day better than getting off work early and getting home!  
And seeing that first sign of spring in your yard. 
I hope your week is off to a good start too!


  1. I know that feeling, but oh boy do those cakes look good, guaranteed to cheer anyone up.

  2. It seems that great minds really so think alike!

    I love Todd in his snazzy scarf!

  3. Oh Ya Girlfriend, to well......but a donut will make it all better.......Lucky you saw the first sign of Spring, here sooo cold, windy, Winter all the way, YUK!!!!! Have a great day today, Francine.

  4. Oh, this posting is far too delicious! I'd like those pastries as well! Have a great day. Hugs to the dogs!

  5. Hi Kim - for me the best thing for a day out of sync is to drink as much tea as possible! hope Tuesday is better. xxx

  6. I'm there today...but the Danish are not..I may have to remedy that!!

  7. My tummy is growling!! Yum! Are you serious that you have spring poking up through the ground? We are supposed to get up to 12" of snow Thursday !! I'm really really over it!!

  8. Hi Kim, Dont know about you but our dental world was crazy yesterday. It's endo season here with the impending storm!! I was so glad to get home to my girlz and that theater sized box of butterfinger bites!! Have a great week.'

  9. Care to share some sweet treats?

  10. Cheeeeeese. Well that will start any day off right. And MOM smiled at the signs of Spring. I think we have to wait until April before that happens. But it is coming.

  11. always love seeing your babies. :)

  12. Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. I'm drooling.

  13. What a great way to get everything back in sync...comfort carbs, as we call them.



    Oh oh oh, the first sign of spring - hooray!! I've just about had enough of this winter, I'm ready for green and fresh :)

    Todd looks SO CUTE in his little tartan scarf!!


  15. That's my day today, only I don't have a car to run and get danish - you big tease, you! Did it help?

    Signs of spring here too - it is too soon!

  16. A great start to any day, and super finish, to take goodies home, spring greenery showing already, brave plants, Here we have leaves falling more every day, starting to change colour if still on a tree. The drought has meant many more leaves fell so much earlier. Cheers from Jean.

  17. Dear Kim, my day absolutely & totally feels out-of-sync today... and I have NO DONUTS!!! Accckkkkk!! Woe is me!!!


    I think I will have to simply put extra sugar in my coffee & be happy with that... but oh, a cheese Danish. That would fix me right up, indeed!! :-)


  18. But getting home to the doggie babies are the best things but I wouldn't turn down the pastry.

  19. Looks like Spring is on it's way!

    We usually have a big walk and read blogs (HER with a cappuccino) so we start off our day well....of course it also helps that SHE doesn't work!)

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

    Love Todd's scarf.

  20. Woof! Woof! Mom always starts her day with a sweet pastry of course with her coffee. Oh what a face to come home. Golden LOVE to the Golden Pines Gang. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  21. Hi, I have been feeling like I have no energy-maybe I need a gluten free chocolate donut. We have snow in the forecast for the next few days; I am so ready for spring.
    Hugs, Noreen

  22. There's nothing like comfort food at work and dogs to greet you when you get home!...:)JP

  23. I'm trying SO hard right now not to eat my feelings, and I am afraid that I'm losing the battle. Pass the cheese danish, please!

  24. Oh my gosh.. so many are seeing spring already. And today I startled a couple of birds checking our our spouting... probably making plans for nesting (they usually do there).
    Love Panara Bakery!!

  25. Hope the entire week is as good as the start!

  26. Its good that when one person has a need for bakery, the other four do too! Is it Misery loves Company, something like that?

    Add me to those who admire Todd's tartan scarf! Cute as can be!

    We are back to doing the sub-zero weather which is not for me at all!

    We send hugs all around.

    Jo, Stella and Zkhat

  27. Howdy All, yep, cakes always make our mum feel good. It's the walking afterwards that she doesn't like hehehe but we make her do it! No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  28. I had lunch at Panera today and it is always difficult to just pick out one thing for dessert. Spring is so far off for us so thanks for sharing a bit of green.


  29. Todd looks like he'd vote for baked goods too !

  30. Baked goods are a great way to start out the day!! We won't be seeing green for months at the rate we are going...thanks for sharing yours!! Love all of your pics! I just love Panera...but we don't have one near us anymore since the new one they built closed down.

  31. It's only 9.50am but my stomach is now rumbling at the sight of those delicious bakery items!

  32. Nothing better to start the day than a cheese danish...a woman after my own heart. Thanks for stopping by my blog...

  33. get thee behind me satan!
    although i love stuffed with cream danish or whatever they are . . .
    i would have chosen the little artichoke spinach soufflé. LOVE'EM!
    lovin' that tartan scarf on my favorite scotty. it would look good too on the cute little wheaten terrier with one beautiful blue eye! he's so special that charlie.
    and annie... well. that face.
    i just want to bear hug ALL of you!
    human and dog alike!!!

  34. I love your first sign of spring! We
    have some brave little things peeking out of the earth too!
    And ohhhhh Danish- with creame cheese- yum, yum,.,, the perfect way to start a day! We would love to sit with you and enjoy some too,

  35. Baked goods make everything better. They have the best orange scones at Panera. :) Hope you are having a good week!

  36. My week got off to a pretty good start as well, but baked goods do always make things seem a bit better :)

    On another note, I love Todd's scarf!

  37. Thump-Thump ANNIE !!
    Loves and Rooooooooos from Easton

  38. Our spring is so fleeting that sometimes it is almost sad to see the first green of the year. It means we are heading into almost 5 months of too hot temps!
