The floods and ice storm continues, so we’re not leaving the house.  I really need to get serious about going into my craft room, but just don’t feel like it.  It’s one of those days where I’m really feeling like doing nothing…maybe watching a movie.  I always feel like I’m letting viewers down when I don’t want to create anything, so I’ll apologize in advance for not feeling up to it.

It’s lucky that I have videos that need to be uploaded, so Rich is doing that so it’s invisible to those of you who don’t read my blog, when I’m having a listless day.  It’ll be our secret.

I forgot to tell you about a gift Rich got me for Christmas.  I’ve always been interested in my family tree, so he bought me the DNA kit from Ancestry.com so I would know where I originate from.  My DNA says I’m 57% British, and another 27% Western European,  Of course there are very small percentages from other parts of Europe, Ireland, Spain etc., so now I know where we came from.  I’ve always thought that was the case, but it was really fun finding out the details.  The DNA test also will tell you about cousins that my DNA says I’m related to, and there were very few second cousins, then more third cousins, and lots more further out.  I thought it was really interesting and will try to get in touch with those that are my second cousins, as I’d never heard of them and wonder who and where they are.  The Ancestry site doesn’t give you full names, but it’s kind of fun that I can contact them through Ancestry to find out where we are connected.  I’ll let you know what I discover.
