Day 11 of Quarantine….

Today was an okay day. My husband’s hours got cut and his pay got cut at his job. He repairs coffee machines and sell coffee to offices. I wish this Covid 19 garbage would just go away so everyone could get back to normal routines. I really would like to have a nice summer, wouldn’t you?

My son’s teacher, Ms. Bollard, had a Google Hangout time with her students by video call. Wiley enjoyed seeing his friends. I video called one of my friends today. It was nice talking to her and seeing her face.

I discovered that I can read articles on the “Post and Courier” news website (Charleston SC) for free during quarantine. I always have enjoyed reading the ‘Post and Courier”. I miss living in Charleston sometimes.

I didn’t look at any estate records today for Cornelius Cook’s and Mary Cook Donaldson’s parents. I did come to the realization that there are 6 houses that are connected to my maternal ancestors that are still standing in South Carolina. I might do a historic house blog in the future.

I really like writing my blog posts. I am kicking around the idea of writing a short story but I need to overcome my anxiety about it. I would love to write for a historical magazine as well if I could find my ancestors that are missing. Email me or comment below if you own a magazine that is looking for freelance writers. My work speaks for itself.
