I am telling you

I seem to be having a bit of trouble lately in filling my blog with interesting tidbits about my life. I could write about the weather, but it's autumn, northern hemisphere, close to the sea. I don't need to tell you that that means wind, rain, nice, rain, nice, wind. 

However, despite having trouble in the recent past, I have plenty to tell. Like the fact that I just preposted 2 posts for November. Both posts containing giv... not telling you yet. 

Like the fact that I am doing better headache wise. Yes, I had a headache last week, but I know exactly where that came from (the seat) and I managed to get rid of it, not by swallowing a pharmacy's supply of pills, but by using heat and massages (although yes, I did take a few pills). 

Like the fact that I am feeling very proud of myself over the whole food and dishes thing. I do have to do the dishes from yesterday, but I think there was two plates and a food container. 

Like the fact that my knitting actually looks quite similar to my sister's. Even if I have to knit in a way that is not my way, I knit a lot looser (more loose?) than she does, but for the sake of not wanting to unravel everything she has done already, I stick to her way. 

Like the fact that I am doing a lot better inside my head. Perhaps because I have been so busy with my genealogy, but I love doing that. If you let me I would talk about that all day long! Every gold nugget I find gives me more impetus to continue. I now have asked my family to come up with contemporary stories about the experiences of my ancestors. Have things changed or are they still the same? So far, I have one story submitted and a bit of my own story and a letter from my father to me. 

Anyway, time to do the dishes and/or the laundry and go back to work for a few hours.

    On the whole, then, all is positive! I admire you adjusting your knitting tension successfully - I tried that many years ago under mother's instruction and failed miserably. ... and I think you'd find that telling your genealogy stories would entertain us very nicely indeed!!! YAM xx

    1. I know you lot would love it, but I would like my family to read them first. Especially if there were a lot of contemporary stories to accompany them.

      Fair call! Indeed, writing 'true events' can be a bit daunting - rarely does anyone in the same group remember things the same way!!! But golly, the world loves biographies &*> YAM xx

    3. The only stories I would be writing on the blog would be the ones of long dead ancestors, not the contemporary stories. But that will have to wait a while yet. In the mean time there will just be teasers....

  2. Speaking of genealogy, I did try ancestry at the library last week but went around in circles. I have looked at a couple of tutorial videos and may try again, but I am not very good at it. I tried your Family Heritage site/ It looks friendly, but, of course, to research anything requires a paid membership.
