In the north, signs of summer are never taken for granted. Our summer season is too short to do so. And while I long to be outside (minus the bugs) I'm enjoying work on a manuscript for a writer who has had a request from a publisher. That's always great news, and I'm happy to help.
I'm also doing research on my Metis heritage. This morning my cousin sent me a newspaper notice of our great-grandparents wedding announcement. The date was Oct 24, 1878. One hundred and 5 years before the birth of their great-great-grandson. Fascinating.
