- Working on the transcription of the document I will use for my thesis. It's about 200 handwritten pages of medicinal recipes written between 1500 and 1700 (not too sure of the dates--although I know that some of them were written in Massachusetts in the colonial era. I hope to have a better sense once I finish the transcription). I will use it as a case study to see which medicinal theories of the time appear in these recipes, if recipes in different generations reflect changes in medicinal theory, and how it compares to other similar recipe books in the same time period. Need to get the transcription done (into Word) before I can start the research and start my thesis. It's one of my top priorities.
I also washed and put away my January pillowcase and put on the February pillowcase. I loved how warm and soft the flannel penguin pillowcase was, but looking forward to feeling the love with the February pillowcase.
I also did most of my baking for the week. My sister collected a bunch of recipes from all of us and gave us a family cookbook for Christmas. I tried out one of the recipes: chicken white chili. It's delicious.
Tomorrow I have church, a planning meeting for some genealogy seminars we want to do at our local FamilySearch Center, skyping with 2 different sets of family members, calls with many other family members, making roasted veggies & Aunt Dawnell's tortilla soup in the slow cooker. So much for Sunday being a day of rest :)
