100: Goodbye 2010

(A hint.)

This will likely be another auto-post.  It’s actually the eve before New Year’s Eve as I type this.  It’s been a long day, chock full of fun and learning, ending with a dinner with good friends.  People who are really more like family after all this time.

Anyhow.  I’ve found myself some internet access (just trying to sound like the provincial I am…lol!) and decided I should set up an auto-post because I may not have time for it on New Year’s Eve.  I should be home by dinner time.  After that, who knows?  M and I might go over to Akron for their First Night celebration, weather permitting.

(Another hint.)

Some of you may have figured out where I’ve spent the last few days.  The first hint may not have been much help but surely the second gave it away.  And if not, you’ll soon know for sure as I plan on settling in for the weekend and getting caught up with you, on my own blog and by visiting your blogs.

2010 has been an interesting year.  A year of mourning.  A year of celebrating.  And certainly a year of traveling.  One of the things I like about the roll-out of the new year is it means staying home for a while.  A month or two of winter hibernation before we take off like the snowbirds we are becoming.

So.  Goodbye 2010.  I am grateful for the many gifts and blessings that were bestowed upon me throughout the year.  One of those gifts/blessings is getting to know my fellow blogmates a little bit better as well as meeting some new folks and making new friends.  Thank you all for your visits and your comments.

I’ll see you all again in 2011.  In the meantime, have a safe, fun, and magical celebration tonight.

P.S.  I know I should be celebrating and writing a blog post about the first 100 days of my outdoor commitment but it’s been a very long day and I could use some sleep.  Perhaps tonight in my sleep I’ll dream up a creative way to celebrate it, and surprise you with something over the next few days.

Or perhaps I’ll simply dream and just keep meeting my daily commitment, letting each day surprise me.

  1. Happy New Year, Robin! (((hug)))

    I’m sure you’ll forgive me for not recognising your location, what with never having been to the States, although you are obviously in a warmer climate than your beautiful Bogs. I’ll look forward to hearing the stories of your latest adventures. 🙂

    The end of a year is the perfect time for reflection, isn’t it? And a time when we can decide on the improvements we wish to bring into the next year.

    It has been pure pleasure getting to know you during 2010, with your storiesof your family, travels and home life throughout the year. 🙂

      Joanne: It has been a pleasure getting to know you too. I’m looking forward to getting to know you even better over 2011 now that you’re committed to blogging every day. It will be fun, I think. 🙂

      *Hug* back at ya.

    Happy New Year, Robin! I wish you all the very best in 2011.

    It’s been wonderful getting to know you through blogging. Thank you for sharing your wonderful photos and stories.

    Blogmates, I like that.

    It seems 2010 was certainly a wonderful year of travel for you. I’d REALLY like to get to the place you’ve just visited. It’s one of those things that just never gets planned as “real life” gets in the way.
    I have to say though, I’m a bit surprised about your lack of internet access over the last few days according to your location!

    • Robin says:

      I know how that is, Karma. There are so many places I want to visit (some not all that far from where I live) but the trips keep getting put off because of “real life.”

      As for the lack of internet access, it was more a matter of not wanting to pay for it. While most of the cheap hotels we usually stay in provide free internet access of some kind, the place we stayed at this time around charges $14.99 per night for wireless. And although we did eventually get it free (just by asking about internet access at the front desk — I suspect most of their guests are business people who don’t care if they pay because their company foots the bill), I was enjoying being off-line for a little while and only used it long enough to get this post scheduled. As it turns out, we could have done without it completely since I had time last night to write a post, but it was nice to be able to relax and not worry about it.

    Hi Robin! I hope your new year is wonderful to you.

    It occurred to me that someone needs to develop some kind of technology so that when we sleep and dream, we can post that dream automatically to our blogs. Wouldn’t that be helpful? And just think how much we would all learn about bloggers by sneaking into their dreams!

    Happy New Year!

    • Robin says:

      Yikes, Corina! lol! I don’t know if I’d want my dreams broadcast on my blog. That would be scary.

      On the other hand, it might also be entertaining. lol!

Thank you for visiting, and for commenting. I hope you'll join me at my new blog home, Breezes at Dawn.
