It’s the little things that count!
I have this morning ritual. I eat egg burritos, hopefully have a clementine or something similar, and drink my coffee.
A perfect ritual involves coconut oil in the coffee, but right now it’s not perfect. Sigh . . .
I eat, then crack open the laptop and check all my accounts. Needless to say, this morning was super sweet because I have been in the hospital the past week with my son. We went to the ER exactly a week ago today with what turned out to be appendicitis. He had surgery Tuesday afternoon, but since it had turned gangrenous he had to have a drain and also IV antibiotics.
To say we were both glad to finally come home yesterday is an understatement. After all, the hospital doesn’t serve egg burritos, and coffee in a styrofoam cup in a hard hospital chair just isn’t the same.
The little things.
I did manage, with so much time sitting, to finish the 2nd edition of Metes& Bounds II: David Crews, Ancestors & Descendants.
I also pulled the first chapters on John Crews and Sarah Gatley, and on his son David Crew and wives Mary Stanley and Mary Ladd-Magee, as well as the chapter on the Stanleys, to create another book. This book will be just for individuals who descend from Crew/Gatley and Crew/Stanley. Anyone descending from them through David Milton Crews (1740-1821) need not purchase the smaller edition as the chapters are in the larger work about his life and descendants.
I also debuted the trailer for Metes & Bounds II last night. You can see it below!
I should have both books available the week of Thanksgiving. I will post here, on my Facebook page, as well as several other places when they are available. I will ask, though, that if you purchase please go through my website which takes you to the publisher Createspace. Amazon literally takes 1/2 my profits.
Purchasing through Createspace is a little thing, yes, but it is the little things that count!
