I am reading ...
It's been a hectic, busy six months so I have assorted books
that I can read calmly
for a few minutes at a time, in different spots in our house.
Growing Pains, an autobiography of Emily Carr is upstairs,
one of the Outlander books is in the downstair bathroom
and I'm reading Mr Hazens's
Get Yerself a Shin O”heat: the Irish Collection to Gerry at night
as he shaves. AND Kathy just dropped off Tracy Chevalier's
Someone who makes me laugh is...my husband,

At home I cook ...basic stuff...depends on who is home,
chili with cornbread on top is on the menu now that David and his

with Mrs Forward in the Sussex Laundry.
A person I admire is...anyone who speaks easily in public

The best part of what I do for a living is...making my art ideas become a reality
I wish I had...our bathroom reno finished
My favourite vacation spot is...currently,wherever my grandchildren are;
once, New York would have topped the list.
If I could invite three people to dinner, alive or dead, they would be .. my grandmother...
because it would be nice to see her and as we get older it's always nice to have
family questions answered......
maybe who ever thought placing sand under pavement was a great idea, that could lead
to a lively discussion.. oh, and whoever takes responsibility for strawberry worms....
If I could have a super power, it would be... to fly gracefully
My favourite thing about the Kennebecasis Valley is...it has everything I need....almost
