I'm Back!

Wow! I had no idea I would be away for so long. I apologize to my loyal followers. I'm not sure what happened to me! I thought I would take a short break and it ended up lasting for a few months. I've been busy with other things in my life. I guess I just needed a break.....

I have a love of Genealogy and that is what I've been spending the most time on. I figured out a very difficult line (Forcier) and I spent about 6 weeks on that one. I'm still working on another one (Rondeau/Rondo) that is proving to be even more difficult! But I find it to be very rewarding and it has ignited a passion for history that I never had before. I also have a greater appreciation for the pioneers of Canada and the US. I've even found relatives I never knew I had and helped them with their research too!

I've spent quite a bit of time with my grand kids but I'm no longer babysitting them. I had to quit so I could spend more time on home and work. I need to start paying more attention to my vintage jewelry business or I will have to find a job! So, needless to say, I am motivated to work a little harder on my business!

I've been getting out and doing a lot too. I just had a 1 night camping trip with my granddaughter Emma, my sister Kristy and my niece McKenna. It was great fun! My sister and I just sat and talked for hours by the fire. We slept in a tent on the hard ground which isn't my favorite thing to do! But we had a few comforts of my laptap to watch movies. I hate to admit this but my sister went and got us McDonald's for breakfast! It was fun to get away and I like making the memories for Emma to remember me by.

I'll keep it short today and add a few photos of what I've been up to lately! I really missed being here and I will try to keep it up! Thanks for sticking with me!
