I love crafts, and am really interested in creating good solid memories of my family. I work as a volunteer for a local hospice, which has been a wonderful experience, and which I plan to keep up with as long as my body lets me and gas stays under $10.00/gallon! LOL. I am not possession-oriented, but love to be surrounded by pretty things that reflect nature. Since I have a black thumb, I have decorated my house with artificial flowers and plants, and lots of flower pictures. I retired early to care for my partially disabled husband, but do substitute teaching at our church's parochial school. I love the kids, and find I'm as proud of them as their parents and regular teachers are. I have 4 stepchildren (all grown) and three grandchildren, and I'm very proud of them all.
