Welcome to my blog. I am glad you are here. Let me tell you a bit about myself. I am recently retired. I am doing the things I always wanted to do, but did not have the time. I have a wonderful husband, who likes many of the same things I do, which is pretty unusual in this day and age. I have two children, a boy and a girl, both grown with families of their own. And we have two dogs that share our everyday lives with us. About a year and a half ago, we moved to the country, which was always something we both wanted, but had never experienced. We have almost 2 acres. I am new to gardening, but am giving it a go. I had my first garden last year, and want to expand this year. Two acres is a lot of land to work with and is a bit overwhelming. I love do-it-yourself projects, especially the ones that require things I already have around the house. I have a degree in art therapy, so spent some time working with people with special needs. I love creating art with many different mediums. So enjoy your stay on my porch swing and let’s have some chatter.
