Actually, if we wait 10 minutes, the sky will be blue again. But then, in another 10 minutes, it will be pouring again. Such has been the weather for the past . . . weeks, it seems like. I keep mumbling about how absolutely ideal the temperature & rain are for all those flower seeds I'd hope to get planted this spring . . . but I still only have the Creeping Thyme in. Why? Well, when the weather is good enough to be working outside, either the wind is blowing so fiercely that trying to rake anything and then plant teeny, tiny seeds would be a joke . . . or I'm away from home . . . or I'm AT home but doing some of the MUST-DOs on my list! (Sigh.)
Matter of fact, I'm not even home right now. I'm nannying, and the peanut is asleep . . . but struggling a bit restlessly through her nap. She's popping through a molar and has a little fever. Oh, the trevails of a 19-month old! :)
But, being here - away from MOST of the STUFF I have to do at home (I'm choosing to very consciously ignore the large TUB of mail I brought to wade through) - is giving me the chance to work on something fun: the family history! I was contacted by someone who is related to Tom by a few generations back. Via the Internet, he stumbled upon the information I've posted in the family history portion of our homepage. Anyway, in comparing his information with mine, I made a new graph of a portion of the family tree and was able to clearly see that the colleague of Tom's who we call 'Cousin' (when he was working up on the Rez - I'll try to find that post later) shares Great Great Great Great Great Great Great (yep, that's 7) Grandparents with him! Cool, huh?! (Well, I think so, anyway.)
Okay, gotta check on the wee one.
(Yup, I see sun shining now!)
