It has been hot and rainy here for the past month. I mean HOT and lots of showers in the afternoon.
So, given that the steamy weather continues, I have taken on a project of Epic proportions. It's been quietly waiting for me....loads of photos, a dear Sister-in-law that has been doing research along with me, and pile of genealogy left to me by my Aunt, who recently died at 104.5! It is such a gift to have all of the family history, and it is a pleasure to bring it up to date. This has filled my days.
|all these albums are now filled with the family history,|
|Albums waiting to be filled|
|A snug corner to work in, with all that I need for creating albums|
|I had to use a few extra surfaces (like Beds!) because I ran out of room.|
Good thing we don't get a lot of guests in the summertime.
|Piles of photos of our immediate family|
await future albums.
I laugh at how many photos we have compared to
generations past. I tried to cover every moment of
my life with Sweet Hubby & Kiddos.
I look over at the drawing board, and my work still sits there, waiting for me to get back to it. So far, I have filled six albums of information, some being sent off to siblings. I have worked on a self published photo book with the "Who's Who" in our family, to be printed professionally.
It's not that I haven't been outside each day...I do! I walk every day and find beautiful plants as I make my way around my neighborhood. My neighbor invites me over to see her lemon tree, which is hanging so low, it can hardly NOT fall over. But the fruit is still too green, so we wait in anticipation for lemonade! But, she has other beauties growing.....
Nope - not lemons....but beautiful in this deep shade.
|White Bird of Paradise|
A stunning beauty, for sure!
