I'm still discombobulated from the holiday weeks we had, when I had no idea what day it was, unless I looked at my calendar.
I have been so busy this last week and had no errands to run that it didn't really matter what day it was, but still, I was shocked to realize that today was Saturday and only realized it when at 11:00, I realized that Michigan State and University of Michigan were playing the rival game today at noon.
We (Michigan State) lost, which wasn't really unexpected by me. Two weeks ago, we were the #1 college basketball team in America, beating teams by 28 points. BUT--that was preseason and you can't really tell how good or bad a team is until they start conference play.
Oh well--you don't need to hear about all that.
The genealogy that I am working on now, has been interesting. Probably made more so because my client has biographies written by her grand parents. I can print those pages and put them in with the "facts and figures" pages and plump up the book. Just imagine what a treasure to have for the generations still to come.
I decided to renew my subscription to Ancestry.com International, so that I can access birth and marriage records from European countries. My client's ancestor's are fairly new emigre's and if I could only access USA records, I'd only get a couple of generations.
I'm near the "top of the tree" now, so I may be able to finish writing the book this week.
We are back in the deep freeze. All the snow had melted by Thursday evening, with a temp of 57 that day. Then Friday the snow started--we got 3-4 inches, which was nice because it covered up all the mud and dead grass and is once again, a pretty, white wonderland outside. Along with that, came the single digit temps again.
I wanted to run up to Subway and get me a Spicy Italian Foot Long sub for supper this afternoon, but every door on my car was frozen shut and I wasn't in the mood to wrestle with that problem. I DO have to go up to Meijer tomorrow to get cat food, milk and bathroom tissue, so I'll pour some water on the driver's side door, to get it unfrozen, and then when I get home, try and remember to spray the rubber around the door with PAM cooking spray. That helps the doors from freezing shut--or so I heard.
My grandson is getting married June 2nd, so the other day, I did spend some time on a few websites looking for an appropriate "Grandma" dress to wear. That was quite an experience to tell you about later.
