Back From A Week

 A special hello to all of you my friends.  I have been gone for a week because we were visiting our family in  Alabama.  We had not seen our little granddaughter for almost a year, so it was time to go.  Caleb , our grandson, had a 3 day week-end so off we went.  It was wonderful seeing the children.  The weather , not such a pleasure.  We flew into Nashville last Wed. and came home yesterday.  Now those of you who live there will not be surprised by this post.  I was shocked by the weather.  There was snow and ice while we were there.  Remember, I showed all my spring pictures before I left.  Well,, there are even more flowers blooming now here in the NW.  We came home yesterday and there were folks on the flight that were suppose to have left Nashville on Mon.  SW airlines stopped all flights that day due to ice.  We were happy we got out yesterday.  Tomorrow I'll show you some stash but today, it's all about the trip.

 Living so far from these two is very difficult.

 The trip to the  Nashville Airport!!!! There were all kinds of dire warnings about the weather as we drove the 2 1/2 hours. We did fine, thank goodness!

 Notice the trees bent over with ice!

Pretty but very cold!

Thanks so much for joining me and I hope you all have had a good week!

  9. Welcome back! I could only imagine how difficult being away from those two precious kiddies would be. I can't imagine being far away from my son at all. Your Nashville pictures look like what we have from November to April!!!

  15. I just noticed that you need to update your profile to include your granddaughter! They look so sweet, and I know it must be hard to be so far away from them. As they get older... not so much! Ha!

  18. Gorgeous grandchildren, I can see why it is so hard to live so far from them. Look at all that snow!

  19. I can easily understand what a shock it must have been to come from spring into cold winter with ice and snow. That's not what you expect when you fly south, lol.

    Spending time with the grandchildren is one of the best things I can think of. It must have been so so wonderful for you. I am also longing to see our little boy again but I still have to be patient, maybe in two or three months.

  20. Yes, welcome to our world, Barb!! It's been so, so cold (-9 here when I woke up today) and the snowy landscape is starting to wear on us... But, what a delight to see your grandchildren--you are very blessed. That must be so difficult to say goodbye after a nice visit. When they're a bit older they can come visit you!

  21. As I watch the snow coming down, I am jealous of your spring weather. :-) How fun to visit your grandchildren!
