Here 7 things about me:
I am addicted to my dog….. you can see why! He’s totally spoiled…..
My favorite book is Pride and Prejudice …. I’m also addicted to Mr. Darcy, but then again, who isn’t?
I am the music director at my church. You can click on my Butterscotch Cheesecake post and see me in action there directing one of the bell choirs. I play the piano and guitar. Here I am in a little band we had for Vacation Bible School one year. How about that bandanna, eh?
I speak Spanish, well almost- I’m pretty rusty these days! I was a Spanish major in college and taught Spanish for years. I've traveled to
Mexico many times (for vacation, school and mission work), Spain, and . Now I teach middle school Language Arts, Geography and American History. Argentina
I have the best husband who I totally love! We have been married for 25 years so I guess I can reveal that I’m 50 years old – ouch! We have three fantastic children-two in college and one in high school. My youngest son is becoming a great photographer.
I’ve been taking photos of my cooking since the early days of cooking. I remember taking a picture of a beautiful meal of scallops with red cabbage, pasta and cream sauce very early in my cooking. Wish I could find that photo! Somewhere around here we also have a picture of a loaf of bread I made which turned out so horrible that we actually used it as a door stop. The only problem- our dog kept chewing on it and dragging it around the house. It was really heavy! Here’s an old photo of my first sushi.
Since it’s Thanksgiving, I will say I’m thankful for my faith, family, friends, warm home, good health and so much more.
