We’re into week 5 of 2018 already! My SIL, Becky, (who blogs over at Down in the Root Cellar) and I are attempting to keep up with Amy Johnson Crow’s 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks blog schedule. I opted out of last week’s theme (“Invite to Dinner”) because when Becky alerted me that Amy had come up with a new year of prompts, I already had my blog year scheduled. Last week’s previously scheduled set of blogs didn’t fit into the week 4 prompts so I skipped it. This week’s theme is “In the Census”. I can cover that one easily with what is already planned. By the way, you should definitely swing by Becky’s blog and check out what she’s got going on!
Here is this week’s schedule:
Sunday- Blog Schedule (of course)
Tuesday- I’m going to try to post the first short installment of the series about the final years of John BATES during the Civil War. John’s final years will end up being a series of short blog posts since I don’t usually have a lot of time during the week to do extended research so it’s easier to do shorter posts over time rather than one longer blog post.
Thursday- I will celebrate and blog about Minerva BRINCEFIELD UNDERWOOD’s birthday. Minerva is my paternal 3rd great grandmother. She was born in February of 1813.
It’s going to be a great week for me. On one special day this week one of my grandsons will be turning 6 years old. Happy birthday to him! My best friend just announced that her first grandbaby will arrive next year. I’m so excited for her! She’ll be an amazing grammy! She was my child care provider when both my kids were young and I am so glad they had her great example of how to live and behave.
We only have a couple more weeks of taking it easy on the blog and then things will really heat up for a couple of weeks. You will begin to see several blog posts a week if I can keep up with that schedule. If not, I’ll just dial it back and save some posts for next year. I’ll do as many as I can though!
I hope you have a great week!
Until next time,
