Last night we went to the beach house Audra is renting. Hubby made a pot of stew so we took that over and had dinner with Audi, Emme, Sophia and Lily. John was there for the weekend and had us over for dinner on Sunday night but he had to leave early Monday morning to go back to the Tri-Cities to work.
After we ate our fill of stew, Lily and I colored. The other girls were resting. Audi and Vic went for a drive, checking out houses for sale, etc. We all like to do that...its a family "thing." I guess that way if we win the lottery we can buy a beach house, LOL! Anyway, we visited for awhile, then the little girls asked Pappy if he could build a fire so they could make S'mores. Yummy, yummy. I love burnt marshmallows on mine and the fire was perfect - my marshmallow caught fire and made the best S'more ever. Everyone needs to have at least one S'more a year, don't you think? The last time I had one was on the 4th of July when Audi and family were here last year.
I have a conglomeration of paperwork that I'm trying to put in order. It has to do with the Burnett Family History. I'm making a list, and checking it twice! No, really, the list I am making is of our direct line, similar to the one I just recently completed for the Dillon Family History. When I come to a person who is what I call a "dead end," I make sure he or she really is a "dead end." And sometimes, he or she isn't actually. So then I go off on that line and continue it until there is a legitimate, or true, dead end. So I am off on one of those tangents. In order to keep it all straight, I make a Family Group Sheet for each person and I put them on a Pedigree Chart showing who belongs to who. It gets kind of muddled because each person has two parents, four grandparents, eight great-grandparents, etc. A muddled pile accumulates and sometimes my mind gets somewhat befuddled!
I enjoy what I am doing, but if I have to get up and do something else, for example, fix breakfast and eat it, I have reorient myself and get my mind back to where it was before I left. Sometimes that is confusing!
