first of all , i have to tell you that i have been obsessed with "clean house"- a program on tv. that goes in, earmarks items for a huge yard sale - has it , and then matches the profits and takes that $ and completely makes-over the areas in the house that were usually disasterous. i have become so inspired by this show that i have decided to become ruthless in my own disast-opps- home. ssooooo, i was cleaning the downstairs- stuffing various treasures- now junk- into black bags (so i can't see it and change my mind), and in the process, i went upstairs for something and happened to open the spice cupboard- yow! what has been going on in there and why haven't i noticed it before??? leaving the downstairs project hanging, i began to empty the cupboard. i filled a small trash bag with old spices, flavors and empty containers. i'm sure that all the company i'm having in the next week and a half will be so impressed! (did i mention that joanna is being married ,yay, in just over a week and her new inlaws will be here- along with shannon,brian and kids and nella)-soo-o you can see why this project (the spice cupboard) was top priority. AM I NUTS? you don't need to answer that- but, do you find yourself doing the same kind of things? and is your spice cupboard neat?
i never have thought much "about me" so this is an interesting experience. i have simple likes. i love to watch people and animals. i enjoy reading and also teaching in various church callings. i have 6 children- 5 i have raised and the oldest i didn't know until he was 21(adoption situation). i loved being a mom to my kids and found it challenging and rewarding- especially since i see them now as adults.i like to draw,knit, cook, garden and spend time with different friends.my faith has always been an important part of my life and gotten me through the various challenges i have faced.
i have a little collectibles shop "red squirrel" that i totally love- my daughters convinced me to build this. it's been a creative outlet and an
opportunity to meet many new friends in the past 5 years- i love to travel- especially to visit my kids or friends.i would consider myself a creative person who enjoys doing things for others especially if they are in need. i have been blessed with good health and a good life.
