Today we get laundry done, lots of errands, fill one of the propane tanks, general housekeeping items that need to be done. I prepare a to do list for my research at the Mississippi Archives and we recharge our personal engines. The rhythm of life, the necessities of life continue, the day is full but not hurried.

Second day of research at the Mississippi Archives. Solved the mystery around Alfred T. Darden, brother to my great great great grandfather. The weather has been sunny and nice while I have been inside the Archives for two days. Al is feeling better, we have lunch both days in downtown Jackson eateries, where the food is good, but expensive.

Gloomy and wet all day, tonight it will rain and then rain some more. We spend the afternoon shopping. The frig is now filled for the next week or so.
