Tuesday Time to Tackle: Day with the Granddaughter!

Today I got to spend much of the day with my happy granddaughter.  We hung out together while her mom had a doctor's appointment, then spent some time grocery shopping.  She's such an easy-going girl and rarely fusses. 
 
I failed to take my camera (bad Grandma!), so you'll just have to take my word that we had a great time.  I read  Brown Bear, Brown Bear to my granddaughter, and I was delighted that she sat through two readings of it, and seemed to enjoy the story.  

My blog posts don't occur as frequently and regularly as in the past, and I'm still trying to figure out if I want to make a schedule change.  I will continue each weekend to participate in the Ten Things of Thankful Blog Hop--please join me!--but will take some days off sometime during each week.  If I ever decide on a fixed plan, I will let you know.  :-)

  2. Bad Grandma! NO pictures?!! Please think of this next time you have her over.... Although quality-time with a little girl is always more important than making pictures of her...

    Having the same problem with the blogging routine. Hard to get a regular time to blog when you're busy with other things, isn't it?! Well, even if you just blog once a week, that's just fine. Life is more important. Blogging is just a happy extra. Thank you for visiting my blog though. You are my only faithfull reader left I think.... Lost the rest during all those silent days/weeks. Ah well, there are worse things.... Have great week!

  3. Sounds like a lovely time with your granddaughter.
    I haven't posted much myself lately. Life is just too busy sometimes.

  6. I can't help but reprimand you for the lack of photos but I look forward to seeing them soon! Please? Your day with your granddaughter sounds like the perfect day to me and one I have enjoyed often with Amara -- and 9 years later those days are even better! You have so much fun in your future!

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…

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…

Ten Things of Thankful: Nearly Christmas Edition

This is a busy time of year, and though it isn't as busy for me as it has been in past years, my to-do list still seems longer than the hours in the days. However, I find that when I spend time to focus on the reason for the season, I can feel the joy of Christmas and the tasks-at-hand fall back into their proper place. This week I had the opportunity to attend some wonderful events, and I'd love to take you along for a virtual tour:

Let's start at the Conference Center on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah, last Friday night. The Tabernacle Choir joined with the Orchestra at Temple Square and the Bells on Temple Square, along with dancers and guest artists Kelli O'Hara and Richard Thomas, to present a spectacular Christmas concert. Although I couldn't record any of the performance, the following 2-minute video from the church provides an overview:




The last time John and I had attended a Christmas concert by the Tabernacle Choir, they were still holding those conc…
