On Thursday morning, I saw that the crocuses were out, I almost croaked!
Saturday, March 30, 2013 - Hap Half Birt day to me.  Yeah, that's right.  The best half birthday present I got this year was to see that the purple baby crocuses were blooming.  WOW!  Last week, these guys were covered with snow.  Amazing that nothing can stop them from their blooming mission.  see ya, djb

This is one of the balloons that I brought to our get-together at Schmidt's on March 3rd.
Wednesday, March 27, 2013 - Since this blog has Andrew and Jarrett's name on it, I figured I'd put a picture of them in here.  This is the last picture of them alive together on the planet.  Oh yeah, and I took it.  God bless Andrew.  God bless Jarrett.  love you both!

This is one of my African violets that started blooming a couple of weeks ago and it just won't quit.
Monday, March 18, 2013 - Happy Birthday to Karen.  I can't believe it's already this late in the month.  Isn't that weird?  Time is going by so fast.  Doncha just love that African violet.  Once I stopped trying to make them bloom, they just did it all by themselves.  Kind of like Mother's orchids.  We've decided benign neglect is the best medicine for tropical flowers.  haha later, djb

 This picture was taken just before 2 p.m. looking toward Elburn.  You can still see our neighbor's house on the right side.
This picture was taken just before 6 p.m.  Looking out the same window.  You can't see much of anything in this picture.
Sunday, March 10, 2013 - Happy Daylight Saving(s) to you!  So, where is the daylight?  We had rain all day and in combination with the heavy snow cover, it turned into the air into FOG. It's now 7:16 p.m. CDT....but I'm still living on Standard time.  Hopefully, I'll adapt sooner rather than later.  djb

 Here's Jarrett's evergreen tree that is growing in Blackberry Cemetery on March 3, 2013
Here's Andrew's white pine tree growing near Jarrett's tree in the cemetery on March 3, 2013.
Wednesday, March 6, 2013 - Don't those two trees look absolutely gorgeous sitting there on the pure white snow with a cloudless azure sky as a backdrop!!  Answer:  YES! 
     I'm so glad I planted those trees because it makes my heart happy to see something alive and growing connected to Andrew and Jarrett in the cemetery where they were buried 10 years ago.  djb

 This picture of Andrew and Jarrett's candles was taken at 8:03 a.m.
This picture of the front yard (including the boys' candles) was taken at 10:01 a.m.  You can barely see the road.
Tuesday, March 5, 2013 - They keep saying on the Chicago radio station that road conditions west of Elburn on Interstate 88 are treacherous.  Gee!  I think that's entirely possible.  That's why I went to the store yesterday to stock up on supplies so we could hunker down today.  Let it snow, djb
