About me

Location Illinois, United States
Introduction I am a wild wacky woman of a "certain age" old enough to know better, young enough to go for it. I have been married to the same great guy for 36 years, we recently lost our only child, a daughter, who has given us 5 wonderful and interesting grandkids (4 boys, 1 girl). We live in a teeny tiny house (I like to think of it as our enchanted cottage) that was built by DH's great-grandparents and on land they bought from the homesteader in 1870 - lots of great vibes here. We share our lives with a 7 year old Zuchon, a 2 year old Bloodhound and a black cat who recently adopted us.
Interests making soap and body care products, camping, herbs, reading, spending time with family and friends
Favorite Movies Under a Tuscan Sun, James Bond (love Sean Connery), Arsnic and Old Lace, Bell, Book and Candle, Practical Magic, Labyrinth, Princess Bride, The Big Blue, It's a wonderful Life, Christmas Vacation (can't put up a tree if it isn't playing), anything with Jimmy Stewart, Cary Grant or Kathrine Hepburn
Favorite Music I listen to everything! Truely it depends on what I am doing, love country, new age, old or southern rock, classical, blues off the top of my head: Toby Keith, Trace Adkins, Norah Jones, Enya, Mozart at Midnight, ZZTop, the Eagles, BEE GEES, Bette Midler, Trans Siberan Orchastra, way too many to mention
Favorite Books wow there are so many books and so little time! I always read anything by Jennifer Cruisie and Dorthea Benton Frank - love all of their books.

You're wearing a sweater that stretches down to your feet. What color belt do you put on?

hmm, no belt, just lots of chunky jewelry
