In my family, there’s a story my maternal grandmother was a descendant from a Native American. I’ve heard this story my entire life. It was interesting to get my DNA testing done and discover where my DNA comes from. One of which was a slight indicator (1%) of Native American.
But of course, I have two parents. My father is passed so we couldn’t test him. However, my mom did get tested and we recently got her results. There was a lot of similarity in our DNA – as you would expect – but interestingly no Native American, not a trace of it. This means if there was any (which with such a small percentage it’s debatable) Native American in my lineage, it came through my father’s family.
One of my sisters also got her DNA done and it was fascinating to see the differences between her and I even though we have the same parents. We were able to see three areas which were not in my mother’s DNA so they are good indicators of our father’s DNA.
I find genetics a fascinating topic and if I were science minded (which I fail at completely) I would go into genetics. Now it would be interesting to see how the other siblings compare. I would also love to have my husband and all my daughters tested. I just have to convince the people and find the money to do it.
We had our rummage sale over the weekend. We got rid of several of the big items and some of the other stuff. When it was done, Ken and Vicki filled up her Equinox and took a load to Goodwill. During the sale, we only sold two big items which was disappointing. Vicki suggested we post the other items on Facebook. So I did. We sold three more items through Facebook. I have a number of them still posted and we will see what happens.
We still have items in my garage which will need to be loaded into her car and donated. I’m hoping that will be on the agenda for this weekend. There were a few other things which were higher dollar items I want to post to Facebook. Additionally, I have a bunch of crocheting I want to do. Preventing me is the need to work on my stories. They’ve been taking over! I love it but it can also be exhausting.
The next thing for me to prep for is to determine if I’m going to make the attempt do the vendor sale in November. If I am, I need to make a lot more crocheted items – including a lot more variety. The thing is I feel if I’m going to do the vendor’s sale, I should be able to take credit cards. This I’d have to figure out. It’s a lot of research and I’m not sure I want to hassle with it. This is why I waffle.
If I do the vendor’s sale, I could take my books and crocheting. I might be able to put out my books and sell some with more profit going into my pocket. It’s definitely something to consider.
Right now on my couch, I have a dozen projects but have been so buy writing, I don’t have time to crochet. I may have to take a Saturday or Sunday to binge watch something and work on finishing projects. I’ve been getting ideas and ideas and ideas on projects I want to work on so I know I’ll be switching from writing to crocheting in the near future.
