Hobbies and travel …

IMG_1673 One of the hobbies from a few years ago that I had put aside is family history research. Recently, a distant cousin came out of the woodwork and filled in a branch of our family tree that was blank.  It is very satisfying to connect with new family members. 

Another hobby of mine is photography. I’ve been studying up lately on how to make the leap from automatic to manual shooting with my point and shoot camera.

Lately, I’m using heavy plastic bags to hold my files instead of manila folders. I like being able to see what is inside.  The font on the files is 1942 Typewriter – love it.

See the heading in the photo that says Florida?  That’s a huge hint that I’m making a trip there in November. This trip will be one year to the day that I went on my European trip last year to the German Christmas Markets. More about the trip as it nears!

My uncle who died last November did the family genealogy for my dad's side of the family -- it was his passion for years. I don't have any of the information he collected as I lost contact with most of that side of the family years ago. When you move far, far away, not everyone takes the time to keep in touch and you kinda get tired of always being the one to maintain the relationships. Have fun in Florida. Next Sunday, we will be in Sri Lanka for the Eid Holiday. Hope you have a great weekend. Tammy

Perhaps you'll get caught up with your family genealogy in the future. I hear you on the one-sided relationship thing! I look forward to reading about your Sri Lanka visit!
