Tuesday Time to Tackle: A Bunch of LIttle, Neglected Chores

A friend once told me that she didn't blog because she didn't think she had much to blog about.  Today is one of those days for me; I'm getting miscellaneous chores done, but nothing that really deserves a tutorial.

So, what have I been doing lately?  Besides the everyday chores of dishes and laundry, I've tackled a few other mundane tasks.

Let's just say my sock drawer is finally organized.  Lost mates have been found, and socks with holes have been tossed.  I fleetingly thought to take a photo, but then my more rational self thought, "You've got to be kidding!" 

I stamped and mailed out thank you cards for those who helped with our church women's conference.

I practiced playing the songs the choir will be singing at the upcoming stake conference.

I moved the pile of papers that had accumulated on top of the piano.  (I still need to actually go through them, toss, or file.)

I helped amazon.com stay in business.  Birthday season is drawing to a close here--three more birthdays in the next month.   

I organized the Relief Society closet at church.  I'm pretty sure we are set on paper goods.  :-)

My to-do list is not complete, though, so I'm going to stop blogging and start doing.  First up?  Sewing one of Drexel's straps back on his guide dog puppy vest.  It came undone today in the car.  

What have you been doing today?

Thanks for variety to help spice up daily life.

  3. How funny, I cleaned out my sock bin as well, after years and years of accumulating them. Now I just want to figure out what to do with each type that are still technically good but not worn but not good enough to donate.

It's #RootsTech Giveaway Time!

In February of 2018, not knowing exactly what to expect, I attended RootsTech for the first time. What I learned is that RootsTech has something for everyone, from the most beginner of beginners to professional DNA genealogists. If you are interested in your own family story, come to RootsTech! RootsTech offers over 300 classes, amazing keynote speakers, an Expo Hall packed with all sorts of vendors, and evening cultural events. 

After an enjoyable experience in 2018, I returned in 2019, and even got my husband, John, to come one of the days to hear Saroo Brierley give a keynote address. 

Speaking of keynote addresses, this week RootsTech just announced that one of the speakers for 2020 will be David Hume Kennerly, a Pulitzer Prize winning photographer. I can't wait to hear his story!

RootsTech 2020 will celebrate its 10th anniversary, and is bound to be the best one yet! I have been delighted to be accepted as an official RootsTech ambassador. One of the perks is that I received a c…

Never Give Up Hope

Twenty-three years ago, a beautiful little girl was born. From the get-go, she was sweet, sensitive, and rather shy. She has grown into a young woman of whom I am so proud. She has worked hard to overcome challenges, and recently told me she is trying to face her fears, and asked me if I would write her story and share it here on the blog, in hopes she can inspire others through their own struggles. Although I offered to publish an auto-biographical piece for her, she wanted me to write her story from my perspective. At her request, and with her approval of this post, I share the following:
The phone rang, and the social worker on the other end informed me that a baby girl had been born 10 weeks early and drug-exposed. She wasn't ready to be released from the medical facility where she was currently staying, but would we be interested in being her foster-to-adopt parents? Of course! When John and I filled out our paperwork, we indicated that we were comfortable with a premature bab…

Ten Things of Thankful: So Long, October!

Although the number of good moments in October outnumbered the sad, I'm still thankful it is now November!

November brings:
1. a time change. I'm thankful that mornings will be lighter earlier.
2. John's birthday. I'm thankful for him, and love thinking of ways to make his day special.
3. Drexel's birthday. He will be 7 years old this month. Time passes so quickly! I'm thankful for him; he's a good dog. 
4. Thanksgiving. I'm thankful we have a designated day to remember to be thankful.
5. Oldest granddaughter's birthday. She will also be 7 this month. Time passes so quickly! I'm thankful for her; she's a sweet girl.

Other things I'm thankful for this week:
6. Books. I read Educated  and started It's All Relative. Educated is thought-provoking on many levels. I'm looking forward to finishing It's All Relative; I started it in the Baker City Public Library while waiting for our van to be repaired. My copy from Amazon should arrive late…
