a visit with Mom.

Good morning.
Winter persists, as we got another dusting of snow last night.   :-(
Sunday, Craig and I drove up to Muskegon to visit with my Mom.
Cut her hair, emptied trash, and took her out to Applebee's for lunch. We were met there by my brother Brian and his wife Ruth, and another brother, Bruce and his wife Tammy.
We had a nice lunch, and a good visit. After lunch, we said our goodbyes to Bruce and Tammy, and headed to the VFW with my Mom and brother Brian and Ruth. As usual, no luck with he pull-tabs, but had a nice time with family. Left the VFW and said our goodbyes to Brian and Ruth, and stopped at the grocery store on the way back to Mom's apartment for some groceries. Got her back home and settled in, and headed back to Lansing, arriving save and sound.
Monday was our usual running around, bank P.O. and groceries. But before we left home, while Craig was in the shower, I put together our St Paddies Day dinner in the crock-pot. The most delicious corned beef you could eat. It cooks for 8 hours on high, so I needed to get it started before we did our running. And as usual, it was so tender and tasty! If you haven't yet, you really should try this one!
Anyway, with the colder than normal weather persisting, I'm unable to do any work outside yet.   :-(
Hopefully, the weather will soon get better, although the next weeks forecast isn't looking promising. We're suppose to "average" in the mid 40's this time of year, but 30's is all that's forecast for the rest of the week.   :-(
Oh well, spring will get here eventually.....I hope....

    P.S. What did I miss? Why the word verification?
