Blown Away

It was mostly sunny when we left the house but as we drove just the few miles the sky grew darker. Not to worry. All the news reports said slight chance of rain early, then pleasant cooler weather.

So we set-up.

It began as a soft mist. Then drizzle. Up went the plastic drop cloth. Real rain now.
Maybe, it would stop at this.

But it didn't.

It was becoming a soggy mess. Wetness creeping along the tablecloths, water drenching all of the items we had stowed out-of-sight under the tables were now wet from water running down the curb and drips of water puddling on and around the crocheted beanies I had worked so long on.
But even with our dampened spirits and chilly bones, we would have persevered longer had not a gust of wind attempted to blow away our canopy. Abbey and a passer-by caught the legs of the canopy in mid air.

Abbey and I were done.
Even if the rain stopped, everything was damp or completely wet.
My ever optimistic husband would have stayed.
He was out-voted.
And now he's napping
the sun is shining.

Genealogy Search takes us to the Oberdier House in York County

Preparing for a genealogy research trip, I searched the Internet for various family names. I came across a post by someone who said he grew up in a house once belonging to a family in my fathers direct line. Hoping the email address listed was still current, I sent a reply. Through email and phone conversations he shared history and the address.
Not knowing the current owners, we decided to take a chance and drive up the long lane to the house. We were greeted by the new owners who told us they had hoped someone would one day come along and tell them history about this old house. The local high school history class had published research at the York County Heritage Trust and we made copies and gave it to the new owners.

Finished and Wishing to be Finished

I have finished the capelet that I began a couple of weeks ago and my precious daughter, Jamie was so kind to model it for me.
This young lady is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.
And she really wishes she was finished too...
her pregnancy, that is.
