The words taste good this morning. Each one is digested slowly after rolling them playfully across my tongue. Some words I savour and others are washed down with hot sips of morning java. Today I read for myself, for research and for fun. If we were having coffee I would ask you what you are reading and share with you that I am reading the chapters of The Nameless files that I have completed so far, Writing Down the Bones for research and The 100 for fun.
If we were having coffee I would share with you that I got my Ancestry DNA results back. The results were fun and not overly surprising. Getting my results sparked my memory that I had been given a thick package of papers with family history in them years ago and I had stored it away without reading it at the time. Well, I have dug that out and started sifting through and it is so interesting. It is all from my mother’s side of the family but it all fits with the DNA results. I have a couple birth certificates (copies) that are from the 1800s! Anyway, I am now deciding what to do next. I am now craving more knowledge about my family tree and history. Any suggestions on where to take my next steps for research?
If we were having coffee I would share with you that when I stopped in to share a virtual cup of coffee with you last month, April 25th to be exact, I was sitting at 999 followers. I am excited to share that I have reached one of my 50 before 50 goals and achieved one thousand followers! BIG THANKS TO ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR AMAZING SUPPORT!
If we were having coffee I would share a picture of my first 3D puzzle with you. I was a bit overwhelmed when I opened the box and saw this I said to my husband as I picked out the instructions that came in the box that I may have bitten off more than I could chew. In the end it was a lot fun. And yes, it is Harry Potter. It is The Burrow also known as the Weasley Family Home.
If we were having coffee I would share with you that Parent’s Canada ran my article again. Online this time. If you are interested in having a look it is a short read: Lady Parts.
If we were having coffee I would invite you to join my new Facebook page. It is a freshly created page that I am hoping to use to advertise these posts, share inspiration and links to other writer’s posts. I am hopeful that some good dialogue can come out of it. Check it out: HERE.
If we were having coffee I would share a couple of pictures of the cake I made for my older son’s birthday. I was pleased with how it turned out. In a few days I get to make another cake for my other son’s birthday and I am hoping it turns out as well. I will try and share pictures the next time we have a virtual coffee.
See you June 27, 2021 for a virtual cup of coffee!
