Lazy Day Journal - 06/23/08

Not a good genealogy day at all. Too much lazy and not enough all-out effort. Oh well!

I was on the computer by 8 a.m. and read my email and blogs, then posted "Sheri goes to Samford - Post 4." Then I started to write some questions and answers for the Blogger Summit at Jamboree so I look semi-prepared for whatever is asked. You know, an opening statement, something about why, how, when, my favorites, how much traffic, etc. I tried to think of something else to post, but got interested in my pastor's blog and a political forum and when I looked up it was time for lunch.

I left before noon for the library. Dearl and Gary were there, and I talked to them for awhile before I went off to the microfilm machine to do a query lookup in the Chula Vista Star-News in 1946. Found it! Talked to Dearl for awhile, then left to go to Office Depot to get some stuff, and I was home by 2 p.m. I posted "I'm Ready for the SCGS Genealogy Jamboree!" and wrote up some more Q&A for the blogger summit. I played a bit with RootsMagic and Legacy again to get birthday lists. I need another software question like a hole in the head, I think!

Linda came home, and I went in and read the paper, took a nap, watched TV and read my book until dinner time. We were supposed to meet my brother and his family for dinner, but Linda couldn't eat at the place they went to because of her allergies. So we ate outside - it was cooler tonight - only about 75 F, just perfect. I refilled the bird feeder, and went out and cut the front lawn after dinner. Linda had lots of email to work on and some reports, so she did that on the computer and I read my book, washed the dishes, watched Antiques Roadshow and SportsCenter, and finally got back on the computer at 9:30 p.m. I read email and blogs - nothing exciting happening! I'll do this post, then post something on the CVGenCafe, and be done for the night.

Genealogy today was maybe 5.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.0 hour writing blog posts, 1.5 hours on CVGS things, 1.5 hours preparing for the Jamboree, and 0.5 hour playing with software.
