About Me

 Bullets. Brief, factual bullets about moi
  • I'm a native Oregonian. Other than four years of my childhood that I spent on the big island in rural Hawaii, I've lived in Oregon all my life and I love it here. 
  • My husband and I have been married since August 23, 1980. Steve is a very easy-to-love man.  
  • I've got four grown children, one boy and three girls. I'm very blessed!  
  • After being a stay-at-home mom to raise my kids, I landed a job as an administrative assistant for a market research firm. The people are delightful and the work is fun.  
  • Although I suck at many things, [especially math], I am fairly proficient at gardening, writing and shopping, although there is a caveat with the shopping. It has to be for plants, garden junk or books.  
  • I'm a computer junkie. In addition to my blogs, I do Facebook and Pinterest and have several very cool email and blogging buddies. 
  • By nature, I'm an introvert and do best with an hour or so of alone time but I also like people and enjoy discussing different perspectives, whatever the topic.  
So there you have the gist of things. If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to reach out. Thank you for being here.
