mrsmarch @LibrarianRyan Whacked myself in the ankle with the car door a month ago and the pain just won't end. Not broken -- had an x-ray Tuesday night. But it hurts like a burning devil. The shoe helps a little. 4d

There we go! I had to look up the highest elevation I‘d ever been. I knew I‘d been to Denver, and that I stopped in Vail for a bathroom break once, so I had to figure out where I crossed the Great Divide. The highest elevation on I-70 in Colorado is the Eisenhower Tunnel and I drove it at 18 in my dad‘s 1997 Ford Ranger (red) full of college things and towing a Uhaul trailer.

AmyG Ah, then that‘s my highest spot , too. 👍🏻 (edited) 4d

It has been. A day. State meeting, wonderful opportunity to meet ladies and share ideas, but today was unnaturally full of folks with negative attitudes. Don‘t feel as replenished as I usually feel at the end of a day so I‘m recooping in the hotel bed with a crossword and Norse gods.

#BlackAndYellow #Hello! Thank you so much Ashley!! I don‘t know who was more excited to finally open the box — me or my two year old 🥰. I can‘t wait to celebrate #FallAtHogwarts — hopefully there‘s no murders on the Hogwarts Express this year, like the train murder in The Mitford Murders. I wonder what new students will join us at the #Hufflepuff table? #fallathogwartsswap #FAHS

mrsmarch @ashley_o13 I remember you said you were also a hufflepuff! Cleo was so excited for the new “pot”. 2mo

mrsmarch @ashley_o13 My 6 year old took the Pottermore sorting hat quiz and it put her in Ravenclaw, which makes sense if you think of her as a Luna Lovegood type Ravenclaw 🦅 💙🧡. I don‘t know where the baby will sort to, but I am beginning to suspect Slytherin. 🐍 💚🖤 2mo
ashley_o13 @mrsmarch that's so cute she looks like a ravenclaw lol and I'm guessing the little one has a little evil side ? And I thought my 9 year old was too young to do the Pottermore sorting hat quiz I'm going to have him take it! 2mo
mrsmarch @ashley_o13 I walked River through the quiz when she was 4 because I couldn‘t wait another second. And her patronus was specifically a stray cat, which again, if you knew her IRL, is totally accurate. Cleo is adorably evil, but she has the classic Slytherin strive-for-greatness drive. If she isn‘t Slytherin, she‘s a Gryffindor, because she‘s 💯 a long-lost Weasley. 2mo
ashley_o13 @mrsmarch aw! That's so cute! I'm definitely having Brayden do it tomorrow! I feel like he could definitely be Slytherin or Ravenclaw his personality is so in between them. When he takes it I'll let you know what he gets ! 2mo

Before the ? debacle (see previous post), the girls and I went to Dunstable today to find this grave: minor Boston socialite, translator, and founder of my DAR chapter, Anna Davis v. Rydingsvärd. There are at least 4 “Davis plots” in this cemetery, she was in the 3rd one I found. She translated “My Lady Legend,” which I have a copy of but haven‘t read yet.

Busily working on my last piece of homework this afternoon when...this happened. Got the girls 👧🏼👶🏼 out of the house, leashed up the dog 🐕, and crossed the street all while on the phone to 911 and then waited for the fire trucks. The 🔥 put itself out before the firemen arrived. Guess how many services arrived for my little call? 🚒🚒🚒🚒🚒🚓🚓🚑🚗

Visited my alma mater today to complete the “visit a repository” assignment for my genealogy research course. It felt backwards to choose the resource and THEN develop the research question, but I suppose that is the way it must be done. But I was super glad to get to use my alma mater to do the research.

Marcus says this will be pickles. The recipe is for rum-pickled chilis, but I transformed 6 scotch bonnet peppers in to 6 mini Persian cucumbers 🥒 instead. #cookbooks

ValerieAndBooks That looks so good 🤤! 4mo
MicheleinPhilly Probably a wise decision. I made his jerk sauce once and in addition to it being insanely spicy, I didn‘t wear gloves when I sliced the MANY scotch bonnets the recipe called for. For about a week any time I touched my face it was like ☄️☄️☄️☄️. 4mo
mrsmarch @MicheleinPhilly @ValerieAndBooks Update, I tried one of the cucumber slices, quite piquant between the jalapeños and the rum alcohol because you don‘t cook the alcohol off per the recipe, but not too strong. I‘m going to put them in the refrigerator and have them cold later on — thinking as a condiment to a burger ?. 4mo

Hey #lmpbc #round6 #groupJ...some books I was thinking of for our swap. They‘re all under 300 pages, by women authors, two fiction and two nonfiction. I haven‘t read any of them before but they‘re all on my to-read! What do you think?

See All 14 Comments
Sward7 I‘m so excited to be a part of the group. I‘m on the road today but will spend time looking at these and proposing my options tomorrow. Thanks for getting us started. 4mo
Fridameetslucy Me too - excited because I love writing in my books. Super good choices mismarch! Gingerbread is in my to read list already. I like the sound of murder in matera also. Let me think about others after the weekend. I have an unveiling to go to for a friends 20 year old daughter - hard sad weekend 4mo
Sward7 So far I‘m liking Murder in Matera 4mo
Sward7 So, I'm lame and don't know how to properly post. I need my daughter to teach me how to do a pic collage - but until she's home, I will have to post my recommendations here and see if one of you can help me out: The Huntress, The Thirteenth Tale, Thorn Birds, or Shell Seekers. These are the books I'd like to read and share - 2 contemporary fiction and two classics. I'm happy with any of the four.
4mo
Lidia @mrsmarch I think I would like to read Murder in Matera ☺️ 4mo
mrsmarch @Sward7 Wow! Those are all so long. 😰 I have to keep in mind that I‘m taking a class this summer and don‘t have a ton of free time. 4mo
Sward7 Huntress (560 pages), The Thirteenth Tale (432 pages), Thornbirds (704 pages), Shell Seekers (656 pages). Yes, these are all novels with depth. With it being summer, I didn't realize we had a page limit. As a group do we want to establish different rules? What does everyone think?
4mo
Sward7 @mrsmarch @Fridameetslucy @Lidia do we want to limit books to less than 300 pages? 4mo
Lidia I would like to keep it in the 300 pages limit. I work long hours and I‘m not sure I can commit to finishing longer books. 4mo
mrsmarch @Lidia @Sward7 @Fridameetslucy I‘d prefer keeping this book to one that‘s under 300 pages in hardcover — so under 325 or so in paperback (because of size, pbs are sometimes a smidge longer). 4mo

Tamra This has my go-to recipe for shiro wat! Yum, now I have a craving. 😋 4mo
mrsmarch @Tamra I have a friend whose father was an Ethiopian immigrant, and she loves spicy food — if it is so spicy she cries she‘s at her happiest. And even SHE was flabbergasted at, like, the recipe for rum-pickled scotch bonnet peppers. I took a picture of the recipe calling for 6 of the peppers with caption “Marcus is out to kill us” and she responded “😳”. I could definitely rum-pickle some other veggie, though... 4mo
Tamra @mrsmarch my children are Ethiopian hence my discovery of the cuisine. I adore spicy and that rush of endorphins is exhilarating, but no thanks to the Scotch Bonnets! 😅😂😜 (edited) 4mo

I can‘t let go of this book. I‘m rationalizing it to myself as the effect that adoption has on genealogical situations, and therefore it is pertinent to my studies. But it‘s also reinforcing to me that it has always been about policing women‘s bodies, and that if anyone tells my daughters what to do with their respective uteruses, I will fillet them alive.

mrsmarch @ValerieAndBooks I am in the DAR and I looooove lineage research! One morning I was having trouble getting out of bed and my husband said “Today‘s the day you get dead people” i.e. I had arranged daycare for my youngest so I could go to the library and read tax rolls on microfilm and I nearly leapt out of bed in excitement. 5mo
ValerieAndBooks @mrsmarch awesome !! My grandmother was in the DAR and I have been meaning for years to join but life always got in the way — have actually been in touch with the local registrar and need to schedule a meeting with her to show her the info I have and then go from there. 5mo
mrsmarch @ValerieAndBooks If your grandmother was a member, your path should be well-paved. I wish you luck. What‘s the chapter or the town? 5mo
ValerieAndBooks Hopefully!! Her chapter was one she joined in Northern California back in the 70s when requirements might have been different. But she did a lot of on the ground genealogy And passed away before the internet really took off. The chapter I‘m currently in contact with is in West Chester PA. What about you? 5mo
mrsmarch @ValerieAndBooks Boston MA. Boston Tea Party Chapter 1-009 MA. I‘m starting my second three-year stint as Registrar! You might have to fill in some blanks because yes, some things might be needed to bring an application up to today‘s requirements, but it shouldn‘t be onerous. Good luck!🍀 (edited) 5mo
ValerieAndBooks That is really cool! My oldest graduated from Berklee College of Music last year (now in Nashville) - Boston is so full of history that I still haven‘t seen all of it! Now I know who on Litsy to discuss DAR stuff with 😊 5mo
