Heart of a Southern Woman

A snapshot of life one blog post at a time.



Hi friends and family, hope your summer has been going well. I did not mean to take a summer break from writing, but as it turns out, I did so! We have been busier than ever.  Doesn’t it always seem that everyone is so busy these days? My husband and I are both retired, but we stay crazy moving. This summer we have had the joy of seeing a fair number of guests, for short visits many, and for a bit longer others. How much that adds to our quality of life doesn’t it!

Max has been woodworking and gardening with me. I’ve been gardening and playing with family, friends and grandkids!  We’ve had some health issues to deal with. Mostly we’ve had joy and love, and a life worth living. Here are just a few photos of our activities this summer!

In the next few posts I want to share with you some adventures in dna, genealogical research, and where those exciting connections can lead!  Hope you’ll join me if you can.  Wishing you all the best, always, Helen

Old enough to enjoy life, I am a Red Hatter, grandmother, gardener, and amateur genealogist. I am a retired clinical psychologist, master's level, who is disabled with heart disease, but having fun with family and friends. Married over 40 years, I have two grown daughters and three grandchildren. I have learned that grandchildren provide a joy one never knew existed---writing feeds my soul, gardening is therapy, and genealogy research makes me feel like a detective!
