There is nothing like coming home...

(This is a picture from the plane as we were entering Arizona)

I just got back from the frozen tundra, a.k.a. Illinois! brrrrrrrrrrr!!! (Is all I can say.)
And it seems that living in Arizona has thinned my blood nicely.
I was told (several times) that Illinois is having seasonally cold weather for them? Ha! Funny! Those Illinoisan crack me up.. Comedians I tell ya! Every single one of ya!
All I have to say to that is, I have been going back and forth between Arizona and Illinois for about 10 years +/- and every time I go (and I admit it is usually the winter months we go) it is always FREEZING cold to me...And this time was no exception to the rules..

It was windy, cloudy and raining... and I believe the highest it got was 59 degrees? But on the morning we headed out, the sun decided to peek out from behind the clouds.. (Real nice!) I hope it reaches 60 degrees?

Dear Friends and Family of Illinois,
I hope you are enjoying your 59 +/- degree weather, ohhh and just to let you Illinoisan know, today our high is 102!
Hugs and kisses,
