Summer vs. Genealogy

It's been at least a week since I searched for anything in the pile on my desk. The reason? Summer. Yes, I know it's May and summer has not officially started, but it's warm out and the pool is open.

Not that having the pool open per se keeps me from doing genealogy, but there is a certain amount of maintenance with pool chemicals, brushing the sides of the liner, vacuuming the bottom, scooping bugs and the occasional squirrel out. Wow, I kind of wish I had taken a picture of the squirrel in the pool before hubby fished it out. Then it took some extra pool shock to sanitize. It's a good thing the water was still cold then. 

Since we took our first seasonal dip in the pool last Friday, by the time evening comes who wants to sit and  transcribe death records, search for obits, births and marriages? To be honest, I do, but when I try to sit in my office and do stuff like that I get drowsy. Hmmm.

This photo is from opening day.
