Grew up in the country, lived in congested places under stressful circumstances, commuted 2 hours a day for 21 years before moving close enough to cut that to 1 hour per day - and living back in a country setting.

I have a studio in the woods across the road from my home, life is really good, job is not bad, retirement not too many years away and then - more time to make ornaments!

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you - and kindness costs nothing extra, guess those are my thoughts on life.

No real favorites, those shift with my moods and the weather. Love a good read and funny movies. Also classics in black & white.

Hubby and I share our 8 cats, a few chickens and a love of peace and quiet.
