Summer is over. School is back in full mode for those with children or young adults headed to college.
For me, summer meant being away from the computer for a good bit. And not by my choice. Mother Nature had other plans! Southwest Texas was hot and dry. We had the dust from the Sahara desert move in and mix with the pollens from our trees and grasses. Living at the bottom of the Texas Hill Country, this mixture was a menace to a lot of us (yep, me). I was sick for several weeks with allergies/respiratory issues.
And then, my best friend, my "patient-with-all-this-genealogy-stuff" husband, had his 2nd knee replacement surgery.
And, as if the other stuff wasn't enough, I tried to spend as much time as possible with my five grandchildren. They've lived within minutes of our home for years and we've been blessed to have a big part in their lives almost daily. The family was moving almost 2,000 miles away from us, and my husband and I tried to spend as much time as possible with our grands.
So, fall is in the air (I'm dreaming, you know) in the beautiful Texas Hill Country/Wintergarden Area of Texas, and we've had some good rains over the past two days.
I hope you had a good summer. As for me, I'm ready to get back to the computer and continue on with the genealogy work I'm doing for myself and for others.
Fall is upon us!! Almost. Saturday, September 22, 2018, will be here soon.
Happy End of Summer and Almost Fall to y'all!
