I am a practical person who loves all things creative, and loves animals (aka--fur folks).  I enjoy plants, wildlife, riding bikes, walking my dogs, hanging out with my cats, being outdoors and being rather lowkey.  I am a vegetarian. I am a reader. I like stories, especially the stories of everyday living.  I have an awesome hubby and am a mom of grown kids who are the best.  I like hanging out with them too.  I have had interesting jobs so far in life, such as;  plant nursery and library clerk, now I am a housewife again, at least for now, tomorow is full of possiblities.  One of my favorite quotes  "life is a journey, not a destination".
