April 25th - Saturday Morning

I should be cleaning the house, but......any excuse in the storm, right? 

This has been a busy week.  I had a patron at the Family History Center on Wednesday who needed help, so I spent about 3 hours with him.  He comes every week and usually works on his own, but he had questions today.  We found some answers, but also found  more questions!  I do love helping people with their family history.

Thursday was art class.  In addition to Ashby and her friend Abby, they brought a third friend, Bronson.  The three of them were so cute.  We talked about Georgia O'Keefe and then painted a picture of a close up of a flower.  They all did so well.  Apparently, Bronson enjoyed it, according to his mother, so the three of them will probably be back next week.  That will be Abby's last day, as she is moving.

I had a fun texting convo with my roommates yesterday.  It is fun to connect with them spontaneously over silly things.  We are hoping for a September reunion.  Then we can really catch up!

Well, I guess I should get back to real life.  The house is all straightened, so the rest of the cleaning shouldn't take long.  I have quite a to-do list to work on, so I should be busy all day.

April 17th - Been Missing for a While!

The last blog I posted was on March 8th.  I went in to write my next day's blog and I just didn't feel like doing it anymore.  So I just stopped!  It has been over a month and I am still not much interested in writing anymore.  How funny is that?

Anyway, I may write on occasion, but I am not going to be keeping a daily blog for the foreseeable future.

I can fill in the last month and a half by saying - "Things as usual!"  Art class continues each week and we keep having more fun.  For the rest of the year, there will be three artists in the class.  I work at the Family History Center every Wednesday and have a couple of patrons who come every week now.  It is certainly more fun when there are people who want help.  The Genealogy Study Group continues to meet monthly and I am still doing presentations and working closely with the group - and loving it, I might add.

The kids still come over most Sundays for dinner and to spend time together.  Ashby and Brooks continue to grow and get smarter every day!  And cuter, if I do say so myself.  I still love the job of grandmother.

So, I guess, I don't have much new news to talk about.  We went to the Aurora Theatre last night to a play - "The Explorer's Club" - very funny and well-done.  We are buying the house from Billy and hope to be able to close on that by mid-May.  The appraiser came by yesterday.

Well, we will see when I am prompted to write again!
