I've been writing and sorting and comparing and wondering and (not) finding information all day! And I loved every minute of it. Well, almost. I kept knocking files down to the floor and all the papers would spread around. The hanging files have that little hook on them and they kept getting caught on my sweater. I am at a stopping point so I quit for the day. I've been working on getting some information on the Dillon family to a grandson of William Roscoe Dillon, my Grandpa's oldest brother. I came across him on "23 and Me." On his profile he said he would like to find more information on his Dillon family and he was a 2nd cousin match to us. So I contacted him. His last name is not Dillon because his mother's maiden name was Dillon. He has given me information I didn't have and now I will reciprocate. I love it when that happens!
Today wasn't sunny and bright like the last three days have been. It didn't rain but it was a gray kind of day. The ocean was still pretty with the huge waves. I saw a Coast Guard helicopter go by. Watched a spider spin her web outside my window. Snow birds were flitting around in the yard. I love watching them.
Our "landlady" (friend) dropped in yesterday with a Christmas gift. A loaf of homemade pumpkin-nut bread, a snowman night light, a box of "no sugar added" hot cocoa, a cute little Christmas card and a gift card to Blue Heron French Cheese Company! So sweet of her. Hubby made two prints of a doe and her fawn smelling the flowers in the yard and framed them for her. She had planted the flowers this spring. The fawn still had spots on it. The pictures were so cute! (She loved them.)
I haven't much to report tonight. Don't forget about my offer to send a handmade envelope to anyone who wants one. Just PM me on Facebook, leave me an e-mail (address at the top right hand corner of this blog) or make a comment if I already have your snail mail address.
Have a great weekend. I'll try to be more interesting next time!
Ta ta for now,
