What a full week! Last Sunday Michael got called out to work from 3pm to 7am clearing the roads during a little snow-spurt we had. Jessica had left for Wabash, IN where she would be working until Wednesday, so Olivia and Samantha came over for a sleepover. They were able to sled down the Great Sonnystone Mountain both days. Little one (with her sock mittens) had to be pulled up the hill and Grandpa was worn out…
We had 2 Birthdays this week! Eliza is now 8 years old!! Emma is, gulp, 13!!
I started working on my Ancestry in earnest, starting with a Prologue to my new blog, All My Ancestors… I don’t have a schedule for posting over there, but I will let you know here at The News when I do.
Casey put down new flooring in the bathroom. I didn’t take a before and after picture — did I hear you say, too quickly, that’s okay? It looks great and is much warmer.
Then, out of the blue, just a couple of hours ago, I found the draft of Grandmother’s story!!! I won’t even get into where I found it, but it is there, all 3,242 words of it! I read it over in disbelief! However….
As I’ve been poking around the family tree, I found out more about Grandmother Mayne that may or may not disprove my theory of her “lost years”. No matter…it’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
I’ve been pretty faithful to my photo-a-day project over at Photo Synthesis, too. If you’re sitting around trying to stay warm reading blogs, you should check it out… I’m just sitting around trying to stay warm writing them..!
