I had a terrible night Thursday up and down with some kind
of stomach thing. At 3:30 AM I heard a large dog barking. No one
has one in this neighborhood, so I knew something was up besides
me.  I went to the window and saw two police cars, one with a dog,
and an ambulance. Seems our neighbor who has heart trouble
was being taken to the hospital.  No word on her condition yet.
Trying to get back to sleep after that was very hard, even Mom
got up at  6 AM. I think we felt the warmer weather coming.. Wink
Friday found us with 70 degree temps here in town. I was so surprised, Surprised
I thought maybe 60 or so if we were lucky. Took a short trip and took
this shot of the sun going down.. It was hazy by then.. I hated to see the
day end.. we got such a great taste of SPRING!!
First week of March and all the local ice cream parlors are open.
Now that really tells us Spring is coming!!
They did a pretty good business  too. Gas was up to 2.04 but
all the pumps were busy as people were heading out for the weekend.
The freeway was very busy… and so were the stores. I managed to
snag another filterless humidfier that had been marked down
THREE times. Trying to find a filter is almost impossible, so I was
happy to invest in one that will NEVER need one. Smile Made MY
day.. ! Bought a paper at the gas station and heard that it will increase
in price as of the weekend and so will cigarettes. Not good for those
who rely on their paper and smokes everyday. Sad Lots of complaints
I am sure will be coming soon.
Saturday we are in for rain and lots of it.  Nice day to stay indoors and
do things we have put off.  We can only dream about the wonderful two
days we had and more of them to come.

  1. What a wonderful surprise on the weather! We’re in the teens yet again and I don’t know when that will stop…sigh. No matter what it will be officially spring this month and daylight savings will kick in and we’re on our way! I’m glad you had a great day!

  2. Oh what I wouldn’t give for 70’s — we are due for 50 degrees today and I’m excited about that. I can feel myself coming back to life. Now I know how bears feel when they hibernate in the winter and wake up in the Spring. I think I have "bear blood" in me. Have a great weekend Caroldee — Enjoy the warm weather!Deb

  3. The 70s make for a perfect day and I’m sure glad you and mom had one! Have a great weekend and don’t forget to set your clock forward tonight!

  4. It was 72 here yesterday, a beautiful sunny day that told me spring would soon be here. I am glad you got to share in the warmth in MI.Hugs to you and mom. I hope you are feeling better.

  5. We had the same kind of day just loved it so. Suppose to get near 80 today??? Its cloudy hope the rain holds off, want to clean out flower beds. Hope you are feeling better. Enjoy your day. Hugs, Pat

  7. Hi Carol: It was lovely here yesterday in the upper sixties, loved it. Sorry to hear about your neighbour, hope she feels better soon.We got rain today coming down as I type but it’s better then snow so it’s a good thing as Martha Stewert would say. Have a good day and God bless……………..Rusty ((HUGS))

  8. It was 60 yesterday but overcast with wind so felt in the 50’s. However it beats ice or snow! 😉 Have a great weekend Sis.

  9. Sure hope you’re feeling better now. It sounds like you had a great Friday too. It was gorgeous over here. Today is another story. But hey, we had one beautiful day! So what would be some good NASCAR colors for a pincushion…yellow and black, perhaps? hee he

  10. Glad you can finally experience some warm temps! It should get up past 70 here today. It was super foggy this morning but the sun has burned it off and now it’s bright and sunny. Still can’t believe spring is around the corner—another snow storm (or in our case a rain storm) could still blow in. But will take what good weather we can for now!!!

  11. Its been warm here, but not 70! 40 if we are lucky. Still, I’m anxious for spring too. We might get more snow this weekend. Yuck! Hope your nieghbor is going to be alright. I’ll be thinking of ya. Hugs

  12. Oh gosh I’m watching the snow fall.. a lot… sigh, I know it’s coming but I wish it would hurry up! Sounds like you had a great day! That should be making your mom feel better too, warm sunshine does a body good.

  13. Oh gosh you reminded me I was going to look at the humidifiers today.I will tomorrow as shopping again I go Hiho!!
