Thanks for visiting my blog. I appreciate your taking time to read it. I’d love this to be an interactive space where you tell me what you think about what I”m talking about. OR not talking about, as you wish.
Here’s about me: I’ve lived in Chico, California since 1980. I have no desire to ever live anywhere else. I love to travel. I have visited Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Laos and Bangkok. And most of the states of the U.S. But I’ve never been to Hawaii! I am a teacher. I taught high school for 15 years, and now teach middle school. Middle school has brought with it a steep learning curve, which continues to surprise me.
I love to take photos. I carry my camera most all the time. I am bilingual (English/Spanish). Learning Spanish has enriched my life immensely.
I love to write. I have two blogs which I post to regularly (well, sort of), as well as 35 years worth of journals. I dream of writing a novel, and have started a couple of them. So far my continuative powers are a little weak, and they sit waiting for my return. I have published several articles in professional journals, however.
I used to make quilts. I hand quilted them, rueing the day each was finally finished. I became a teacher partly because I wanted more time to quilt, but then teaching was so creatively satisfying that I never quilted again. I still have tons of fabric and I hope to quilt again. Now I knit, but am not all that good at it. Why I traded something I was good at for something I’m not? Space and time, mostly.
I have three kids I raised, one that was gifted to me as a teenager, four granddaughters and one small bossy dog.
