Happy end of February. Winter has returned here to New Hampshire with more snow and some cold temperatures. And according to the forecast there's more of this type of weather coming later this week also. That old saying that March comes in like a lion and out like lamb sounds like it will be true about the lion part.
Since winter is rearing its ugly head in my location today, let me start off with my tulips which are actually looking lovely right now.
I also picked up this hyacinth bulb at Trader Joe's, and it is blooming and smelling great too.
You might remember last week I mentioned I had had a mother-in-law driving day. My husband and I had taken her from one sister-in-law's home to the other's home. This past weekend it was a reverse driving day. We picked up my MIL at my sister-in-law's house in Massachusetts (where she had been visiting for the week) and drove her to the other sister-in-law's home in Maine. My mother-in-law "lives" with my SIL in Maine, but that SIL had been having her school vacation last week and had plans to go away for a part of the week. My 89 year old MIL isn't in good enough shape to stay alone any longer (even if she's still convinced she is) so she had needed to go to my other SIL's home in Massachusetts for the week.
You might also remember that last week for T day I mentioned how when we drove my MIL down to Massachusetts, we stopped for lunch while traveling.. We did the same thing this past weekend when we drove her back to Maine. We were going to have lunch at a different restaurant, but my MIL (who can't remember what she did an hour ago) remembered where we ate last weekend and asked to go back there. Since that restaurant worked in every way we needed it to, back we went to Grill 28 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. It's actually the restaurant on the golf course near the airport, and I'm guessing used to be the clubhouse when this was all air force base.
