As we took down the Christmas decorations and cleaned, I just had to move around the furniture. Clears the mind…
It’s harder than I thought to buy houseplants in the winter. I traipsed around town looking in the usual spots– grocery floral departments– and even tried a new place (to me) Fresh Thyme, but found nothing. Finally I went down the street to my neighborhood store and bought an orchid and a kalanchoe. Later I went by Zeidler Floral and picked out some tiny plants for my Wardian case and a lovely jade plant just because.
I’m still on the lookout, so if you know a good spot to shop, tell me!
Mostly, though, I have slaved over at the Ancestry blog writing up Casey’s family. Remember last year when I started my subscription to ancestrydotcom and said I’d use it for about six months and let it go? Well, my last post was in July and I was just about to cancel it when I decided I should give Casey’s family a shot. I started seriously studying in October, but there was so much research to be done—300 years of it — and then came the holidays so I decided to wait until Now to write it up and get it published.
I plan a series of a dozen or so posts and I probably should publish them weekly, but I’m in love with the story and don’t think I can hold back. I tried to post four last night, but it didn’t go well and I was up until 3am un-doing and re-doing. >sigh< One at a time will work best…
So I cordially invite you to visit All My Ancestors and follow along as I trudge through another January digging up the roots o our Family Tree…
Start right here with Preface

Are those African violets in your haul? I finally let mine go. There wasn’t enough light in my living room, and I had them under florescent lights in the basement where they did not do well. Good luck with them! And the Jade plant. I’m jealous.
My African violets have been around for a while but I recently re-potted them and they’ve loved it. They love their spot in front of the south-facing windows. I haven’t had a Jade plant in decades and I hope she likes her new home.
