To all moms everywhere, Happy Mother's Day! You do the hardest work in the world, raising children and taking care of your families. I salute you all.
Mom and I had a lovely long chat yesterday afternoon. We talked about lots of things - we always do! I updated her on some family tree stuff, too, and she was fascinated. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find anything that pushes mom's family lines back further than about maybe 1820 or so in Poland. However, new information and records are constantly appearing and I will keep looking. For her birthday later this month I'll lug the laptop over to Mom's house and show her the FT now that I've got Family Tree Maker on this computer and have downloaded all of the information from ancestry.com.
Here was last week Saturday:
Here is today:
Oy! You can see I seriously need to sweep up the nut shells that my squirrels left behind on the deck, and I'll get my work-out in today cutting the grass out back. It's on a slope and takes extra muscle power :)
Enjoy your Mother's Day, ladies! Here's a bouquet just for YOU!

Hola! Where does the time go, Geez Louise! Half summer is already gone, and I am first now updating this from last December, tsk tsk. Bad Jan! So, been busy puttering around the yard, as always, and paying more attention than I probably should be to politics. The kitchen "remodel" is on hold due to budgetary constraints, but I hope to have that remedied before the end of the year. And I have yet to paint the guest room - it's only been 3 years now since I moved in to this version of Maison Newton, I'm not lazy or anything, nope... LOL! Take care and have a great rest of the summer. Jan
