who doesn't want a nice shiny, new refrigerator? actually, me!! (not this way, anyway). it all started (ended) with a branch falling on electrical lines going to our house, causing a huge power surge which in turn wiped out pretty much all the electrical do-dads inside. NOT the way one would wish to be able to get new appliances- especially when one is 6 hours away visiting grandkids, and is mainly getting conflicting reports from the 2 parties within that home. so far, the count is--the furnace transformer, both tv's, all clocks , microwave, both phones, the window unit ac,the dvd and video player, sound on the computer,and the latest -- the refrigerator. oh yes- supposedly, 3 fire trucks and a couple of fire chief vehicles showed up on the dreaded night and a half dozen firemen (full garb) were roaming the basement in the dark looking for the origin of the smell of smoke. several parts of the ceiling were taken down and it was finally determined that it was the furnace transformer that had blown and ergo the smell. needless to say, i can hardly wait to go back home - but, what the heck, i'll take a new refrigerator anyway i can get it!!!!
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.
