Sunday Evening

The weather has been absolutely beautiful this weekend. It was in the 70's yesterday and today we went into the 80's. We took a drive today going over two-lane highways looking at all of the trees that are blooming and seeing the greens of Spring. The red bud, crab apple, and pear trees are so pretty. You would see quite a few red bud mixed with other trees that you wondered how they got there. You thought maybe they were planted, but you don't know. Of course, the main thing it gave us a change of scenery. Small towns are always friendly and will wave at you when they meet you. They give you the feeling that they appreciate you coming to their community. You can find some good home cooking at some of the little restaurants and make you feel right at home.
I just know the weekends are much to short and there is only a week left in March.I don't know where it has gone, but the time is flying and you wish it would slow down or at least I do.
With the temperature in the 80's you wonder if we are going to have Spring at all or go directly to summer. Flowers that normally bloom in April are already showing their color. I know the weather has been weird all over and I pray for everybody who is affected with the bad weather. Mother Nature doesn't show any favoritism or what she does.
I attended a seminar about the sync features on my car. It was interesting and I learned things that I didn't know. It even has a 911 feature that I hadn't  thought about before. They can pin point where you are and get you help.
Our neighbor must be having health issues again, the fire truck just went by and there goes the ambulance. The guys that I know at the fire station says our neighborhood has several that have health issues and our houses are marked on the map in the fire station that may need their help. I don't know what the problem is but that makes the 3rd time within the last 6 weeks.
I hope you all have a wonderful week and hopefully we can have a few more days of sunshine. I did turn on the air, but I wasn't really wanting to, but with having allergies, pollen doesn't need to come into the house.

Scary about the neighbors.
We are probably one of those houses that are marked on the map or used to be with our son when he was home. Nice to know that they
plan ahead.
We had some beautiful it is getting cold but the sun is out. It's okay 4 days in the 80's was too warm for me this time of the year.

Life sounds very good for you right now, Shirley. Fascinating that we now have cars so complicated they require seminars! Hope your neighbors are okay. We get fire department paramedics in our neck of the woods, too, but perhaps it's more predictable because we live in an over-55 community. Still, wherever we live, there are always reminders of the fragility of one's lovely life - and the inspiration to live every moment fully and with joy.

Hi Shirley,
Sounds like the perfect spring day to go for a ride and enjoy the blooming trees and flowers. It certainly is an early year and I hope it doesn't mean a summer with soaring temps.
Glad you learned great things in your seminar. Hope your neighbor is okay too.
Thank you for stopping by and good luck in my giveaway.
Hugs, Celestina Marie
