Good morning. It is a lovely day in the neighborhood, already 42 degrees out. We are supposed to get to 60. I will be trying to spend as much time outdoors as possible. Hope everyone has a good day and remembers to wear their red.

Good morning Dianne. Enjoy that 60 degree weather! Could Spring be in the air?

no, just a teaser. Last ime I fell for tis, and got some garden in, I was cold for the next few months & I had to replant. I don't even have any daffodils up. So this cannot last.

Well February is almost half over thank God. Its usually the coldest and snowiest month of winter. Our 10 day forecast shows temps in the mid 40's to mid 50's. Lovin it!

Morning folks. Just landed back at home. Cats are finishing breakfast. We are supposed to hit 35 today, 40 tomorrow and 46 Sunday. Can't wait!

Good morning Willow. What, no snow today? Lol

'Tis the season of mud lol

I forgot about that season. :-)

They jokingly say we have 2 seasons in MAINE: winter and the Fourth of July!

Hey Willow, whats the good word?

The word is good. My brother has improved greatly in the last 24 hours. He was able to stand for a couple of minutes this morning. The psychiatrist saw him and said he was in full capacity and competent to make his own decisions. He said he intended to stay sober. The doc felt his suicidal ideation was when he was drunk and miserable, and that he clearly was not suicidal now. If he continues to progress like this, he may not need rehab. He may be able to go home to his apt and receive home PT and OT. He has dodged the bullet. I hope and pray he can maintain sobriety, but know it's s crap shoot. I will continue to seek the help that I need. Right now I'm praying I don't get called in tonight as I haven't slept yet.

SSL. That's great news Willow! You must be so relieved. Sounds like your prayers have been answered. You must be exhausted!
