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!!

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, all living out of state. I have no sisters. I am a wife of 46 years to the handiest man I know! I am the mother of 2--a daughter and a son. I am the grandmother of 6--daughter has 3 boys (ages 13, 11 and 4); son has 1 boy and 2 girls (ages 14, 12 and 11).

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 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!

We are actually due snow again this weekend!  We haven't had the woodstove going in weeks and now we may have to haul in some wood again since it will be down in the 30's.

I am happy to say that I am feeling much better now. It has been a miserable few weeks trying to recover from this infection and far too many pills for my liking. I think I may make it a bit longer now. 

I hope you are all keeping well and having some decent weather. It is raining here again. In March we had rain for 25 days and the rest were pretty cloudy and cold. Even had snow at the beginning of the month. The only thing I can say is the rain is a bit warmer now. It seems to reach 50' during the day most of the time. It has been one of the most miserable winters on record. I am longing for spring. If it ever stops raining long enough I will get some photos of the garden. The Spring bulbs I planted last Fall are starting to bloom. 

Have a Grand Day. 

Hugs, Eileen
