I am married to my best friend for 40 years and have a wonderful son and lovely daughter-in-law. In February, 2015 our precious granddaughter was born. Sydney, our border collie, rules the roost and guards the yard from pesky squirrels. I retired from teaching after 31 years. I’ve been doing “crafty” things since college and rediscovered knitting several years ago. I received my first spindles in 2011 and my Ladybug spinning wheel was a Birthday/Christmas gift in 2013. I love spinning my own yarn. Other interests competing for my spare time include journaling, mixed-media art, reading and stitching. I like to “ponder” on a lot of things each day and share some of it here.
