My very favorite music would have to be from the 1960's--especially ballads. I also like Celtic Woman & Celine Dion.


My favorite authors are Danielle Steel and John Jakes. Danielle Steel takes me away from my every day life and transports me into pure fiction. John Jakes makes history come alive through the use of fiction and non-fiction combined. I also love children's books...and love to read them to my grandchildren!


BLUE has always been my favorite color. I do like all colors...as each has its own unique way of making me feel.


I like simple foods prepared well. Among my favorite main courses are barbecue, shrimp, pizza & hamburgers. Among my favorite vegetables are green beans, salads & spinach. My favorite fruits include peaches (of course!), apples, strawberries & bananas. My favorite desserts are many--but cheesecake ranks #1 with me! Yum!!


I am rarely on NOTH any more. I am not adding any new friends, and I am in the slow process of deleting current friends who have not been on NOTH for a long time.

My beloved parents have both died now--Dad in May 2013 (living to 92) and Mom in September 2016 (living to 93). I have 3 brothers and no sisters. I am a wife of 49 years to the handiest man I know! I am the mother of 2--a daughter and a son (but sadly, my 42 year old son died in February 2020). I am the grandmother of 6--daughter has 3 boys (ages 16, 14 and 7); son has 1 boy and 2 girls (ages 17, 15 and 14).

I am a college graduate with lifetime teaching certificate in Elementary Education and Middle School Math, English and Social Studies. I returned to college to earn my degree when my baby went to KG--and finished in 5 years by going part time. I have never taught, but I have no regrets about earning it! My parents proudly tell everyone they know that all 4 of their children graduated from college--which is something neither of them had to chance to do as after high school graduation, WWII quickly approached.


My favorite thing is my family! I was truly blessed to have had both of my parents living for so long--they were married 71 years on their last 4th of July together! Both of my children live(d) within 30 minutes of me--although both had moved out of the state at one time. That just makes me appreciate what I have even more! My six grandchildren bring such joy to my life!


I like thoughtful people, HGTV and my computer. This computer opens up the world to me--literally it does now that I am on the Hill!

I don't like lazy people who won't help themselves. I don't like people who constantly lie either.


I read a LOT!! I used to do sewing, plastic canvas and counted cross stitching, but have lost interest in them now. I guess besides reading, my hobby now is being with my family and playing on my computer--and I have rediscovered the love of reading once again!

It has been so hot this weekend, 96'F yesterday. That's about 35Cfor some folks. Today is a bit cooler I am glad to say. I am busy catching up with laundry so I don't go outside too much. The old ticker can't handle it anymore. 
I hope you have a great week. I just started another big puzzle so I won't get bored.
Stay safe and God Bless.

Well I am back. This what I have been doing lately in my spare time. It seemed to take forever especially towards the end. I thought I had lost some pieces as nothing seemed to fit but they were all there. It was a 1000 pieces and each piece was a different shape. One of the hardest puzzles I think I have ever done.

It is a really beautiful summer day here today. It took a while for summer to arrive but everything is growing like crazy now. I hope you are all staying safe and hanging in there. 
Hugs. Eileen
