No one asked but these are my plans for the winter.
I want to write a book. I figure I've read enough and have a head full of useless historical information sooooooo I'd like to write a short book actually more of a collection of letters written to and from the women of this area between the 1780's and the 1840's. Sort of a maritime history of what it was like being home alone and writing to your father, brother, husband while they were out at sea as so many men were during that time in our local history. I've have a workingn title at the moment.....Dear Caroline: Letters Across the Waters.
Caroline is Caroline Currier who's father Capt. Caleb Currier's portrait hands in the Portsmouth Historical Society. I know of one letter that he wrote to her that was filled with longing for word of what home life like while he was. I found it very interesting and that's where the idea grew from. At the least I might learn something.
Let's see what else do I want to accomplish.........oh yeah driving Chris to the brink of insanity by staring at him and saying that I am bored and I'd like to become a bit better at crocheting as it keeps my hands busy which makes me less apt to choke him.
