We went home to Alabama to spend time with family and friends over the holiday break, arriving back in Indy last night.

Aside from visiting with family and friends, we were really looking forward to heading south to get break from our winter weather. It's funny though, they've had a serious drought for quite a few months in the south, but it rained just about the whole time we were there. My parents were happy to be getting rain, however, my hubby and son, who put the cargo carrier on top of the SUV just so they could take their golf clubs, were less than thrilled. It wasn't a total bust though, since they were able to get in their one and only game of golf on Saturday morning before our family get together. It also dried up enough for me to plant the spring bulbs that I brought for my mother.

Our welcome back to Indiana wasn't very nice either. We had rain and high winds last night and woke this morning to a dusting of snow that has continued throughout the day, and brrr is it ever cold, with wind chills in the single digits.

It is hard to believe that another year has come and gone. Thank you to all who have visited Robin's Nesting Place and especially to those who have taken the time to leave comments.
I hope that 2008 will be a year of peace, health, prosperity, personal growth, and blessings for each of you.

Glad to hear your back safe and sound. We are planning a trip to Nashville next week, I sure hope the weather is better there.

Same thing happened here. During our drought, my brother and family came from MD to visit on Friday and it rained, non-stop, for the length of their stay.

Now we have sub-freezing wind. After all, it's winter :o)

Glad you are back!

Happy New Year to you. I look forward to knowing you better.
