I love all living things: people, animals, and plants. I am an amateur herbalist, and love to cook with and use herbs for all sorts of things.

My weight gain has happened gradually, and I'm not starving myself to take it off. Exercise is key with me. As the grandmother of seven, I find that weight no longer bounces off like it once did. I actually wonder if I really should be the soft pillow my own grandmother was that made her hugs wonderful! Then I think about the health challenges that presents, and I get "real."

I'm now a Master Gardener, and live on a wooded two acre property, with loads of places for improvement. Trying to get better at planning: my meals, my garden, and my time.

Personal Information:
Born during WWII in a "Maternal Nursing Home" (an adjunct to the local hospital) in North Platte Nebraska, lived in several big cities ever since: San Diego, Philadelphia, Washington D.C. Moved from Dallas to Missouri in summer of 2014. Love growing herbs, singing, quilting, and crazy quilting. Grandmother of seven. Trying to increase my dependence on God, and to quit thinking I have all the answers.


Other Information:
I'm an avid reader. I read every day, and am currently also reading the Bible every morning, with a schedule to finish it in one year. This is the sixth or seventh time I've read on this schedule, and learn new things every time. It helps center me for the day's activities.

    You are wise. I love your worthy comment. It is hard to say I am beautiful but it is much easier to say I am worthy I can believe that and feel that character matters more and much deeper than “beauty”. I can give more when I am worthy.

    Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always
    be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started
    now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger, more skilled, more self-
    confident and more successful. ~Mark Victor Hansen
