Rainy day activity

For various reasons (starting with: it was cloudy and uninspiring out), we went to town this morning, and straight to the County Clerk’s Office. I looked up the old deeds for this property, and found, as usual, at least one surprise—or bit of evidence that I haven’t been paying attention to when someone’s been reciting family history to me…. Like, the property came into the family via the great-grandmother of the lupines. At least that’s how it appears—I had thought her husband was the original purchasing ancestor.

“Further research needed,” as They say all too often.

This is classified as a rainy day activity because 1) it was indoors, and 2) the afternoon actually became rainy from about one on (this is very good for plants and the dry-dry gardens).
