We woke up to plenty of rain this morning - and it continued most of the day. We even had a good spell of lightening and thunder. Our side yard looked like a river. So, on a rainy Monday, what is one to do? Well, nothing, of course!
And that is pretty much what I did - nothing. Well, there are always a few things that have to be done - empty the dishwasher, straighten a little, make the bed, etc. Other than those few things, I pretty much was at the computer working on family history a good part of the day. I was checking the documents I have found for my grandfather's siblings, hoping to get everything posted in all the right places. I was making pretty good progress, too. I had finished the oldest sister, her husband, and their first child. Then, when I started on the second child, I found a new document. I had already checked and downloaded everything I could find for the whole family over the last couple of weeks, so this was supposed to be just a quick finishing up of details. Well, the new document provided some missing information, which opened up a ton of information. I spent the rest of my time working through all of that. It was all good information and finding a document image is always the preferred way - and I really am happy that I have been able to fill in so much missing information about her. However, it sure put a stop to my quick finishing up. Instead of finishing several of the siblings, I am still on the first! I am not sure whether to be irritated or excited - well, actually, I am excited. But I really like to finish things off, so who knows when I will get it done now.
With all the rain and thunder storms, and it being Monday and all, I finally decided that I needed to spend some time reading and in bed. I ended up reading for an hour or more and then fell asleep for half an hour. It was the perfect thing to do on a day like today.
