Look what we found today!!


Meg...the chocolate lab...was driving me nuts the other day when we were outside. There is a hole with a screen window covering it in the foundation of our house and she kept going over to it and carrying on...I thought she was NUTS! Then today Jason went to take the dogs out and something caught his eye...a kitten (the white and brown 0ne) was sitting by the screen. So he calls me outside and tells me to leave Meg in the house...what the heck. He tells me to go over to the screen and get my damn kitten! Whe I went over there were two there....one of the dark ones and the white one. So...he takes the screen away and of course they ran away to hide. He goes in the house and comes out with cat food and milk! He sits the stuff by the hole and we wait...about ten minuets or so...mommy kitty comes and eats and wants us to pet her. Then the babies come out one by one. Jason says I hope that is all there are...at this point there were two and then we saw another dark one...so there are three...hopefully that is all. They were out there playing most of the afternoon and all I saw was three of them. So now I need kitty names. I think we will probably try to get rid of one or two of them...Jason really likes the white and brown one. We have not been able to get close enough to them to pet them yet. Hunter is on vacation with his dad so I cannot wait until he gets home and sees them!

Stitching Update…Lots of pics

  LHN Family Sampler (excuse my crooked house…not sure why it looks like that) American Flag Quilt Sampler by Rosewood Manor.  I love stitching on this; I did however run out of the Brethren Blue.  I decided to put this down for a little while and have picked up the family sampler again. A close up! HAED Natures Mourning.  I have not worked on this in a while.  I plan to stitch on LHN Family Sampler until Friday and then work on this next. Last but not least is a little freebie that I did before Christmas.

OneNote | A Look Inside

I still have a few more notes to move over from Evernote but I am loving OneNote.  I keep to do lists, goals, projects, ideas, genealogy research and so much more in OneNote.  So what does my setup look like?  Lets take a look! {I usually use OneNote 2016 but I have tried the Windows 10 app and it works just as good.} The first screen shot below is OneNote 2016 and the second is from the Windows 10 app.  My first notebook is my task management notebook.  In this notebook I have my Inbox, which is my default section for incoming stuff, calendar and lists.  {Emails that I have sent to OneNote and screen clips go in my Inbox section.} The next notebook is for my blog, and then the Genealogy notebook is for research notes, then I have the GBT notebook which I use for notes and reminders for GeneaBloggersTribe, the Reference notebook is for things that don't belong in one of the other notebooks,  and the last notebook is the Archive. Lets take a closer look at some o

Marine Casualty Card Database

While I was writing Top 10 Blog Posts for 2019 I discovered that my top post was US Marine Casualty Cards from 2014.  Wow!  {There is also an update to the original post here  where I show some more information that was sent to me.}  I went back to read the post and discovered that the links no longer work.  I did a little digging and found a link to the Casualty Card Database at the Marine Corps University website.  At this site you click on the war you want to search and download a searchable spreadsheet.  Once you locate your Marine you send an email to request the card.  There are also links to download information about what the codes mean on the cards. I also found that you can search the U.S. Marine Corps Casualty Index, 1940-1958 , at Ancestry.com.  It gives the casualty date, type, unit, and service number.  There is a link to go to another website from the Ancestry database but that link does not work. {I believe it is the same as the link from my original post
