About me

Occupation a married mom of two
Location USDA Zone 5, Northeast, United States
Introduction I am a champion of what i think of as lost and dying arts. I often end up lost myself, so i understand how they feel. But i enjoy learning new things and things that are somewhat obscure. Some of the most interesting things in life are the processes by which we get our every-day things. Particularly food. Most of my hobbies or interests pertain to edibles. I'm not a great cook, but i enjoy cooking. I consider myself a Meatetarian and a Vegeholic. I'm a little odd, sometimes eccentric, often obsessive and easily distracted. But my hobbies, activities and interests seem to consistently reflect the idea that: Sometimes the end result isn't the goal, its the process. I do weird things like saving meat drippings to render and make soap, i have a worm farm in my kitchen. I make my own beer, wine, cheese, kefir, sourdough and yogurt for fun. I obsess about gardening and seed starting, i like to crochet and i LOVE to read about how to do all of the above even better. Life is fascinating!
Interests Gardening, reading, writing, anything to do with yarn, clay, paint or fabric. Unconventional nutrition.
Favorite Movies i don't watch them, much. although i will say i love the Anne of Green Gables movies- all but the very last one which was lame.
Favorite Music Most things from the 1940's to the mid 1980's. This new "music" these days is just terrible. -and we thought it was bad in the 80's, lol
Favorite Books Its easier to explain by listing what i don't like: romance drivel entertainment garbage liberal claptrap comic book inanity rick warren and his ilk anything that appears on oprah's reading list

For your birthday, your aunt gave you a maple syrup dispenser shaped like a rooster. Please write her a thank-you note:

i suppose they thought they were being silly by asking that question. the thing is that i actually would like a maple syrup dispenser shaped like a rooster and it is highly likely that i would receive one and it probably would come from one of my aunts.
