This has been one of those weeks. You know the kind that has its ups and downs. I've been having computer issues all week and have spent many hours getting "help." I probably need to look about getting another computer as mine is getting older. I'm from the generation where we expect things to last! Oh well, I need to get over that one.
I took this photograph on the evening of March 6, 2015. There was snow on the ground still, even though the Worm Moon comes when the ground softens as the earthworm casts reappear so the robins return. The ground is now quite soft and we have seen lot's of robins! And a lot of mourning doves!
We visited my husband's older brother this week. He lives 4 hours away. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer's a couple of years ago. This is such a devastating disease. He is now in a memory care unit as his wife can no longer care for him. This was a shocking and emotional visit for my husband and his sister as well as me. We all knew this would be the way it would go. Knowing and seeing are two different things. Thankfully for his wife, three of their four children live close by.

On a lighter , brighter note, our weather has greatly improved. We have been in the 50's and some 60's. Hurrah! It was a beautiful day driving on Thursday as we travelled to see my brother-in-law and family. We were so happy to have the sun shining and safe travels.
I'm excited that our daughter is coming by train for a visit this week. I sure do miss her as she lives in NH----I know her son will be glad to see her. Another of our grandsons will be having a birthday so it will be nice to have the family all together.
