About Me

My photo
I have been retired almost a year, and have enjoyed doing my favorite things, like needlework, rug making, quilting, watercolor painting and photography. I have been married for 47 years and am now the caregiver to my husband suffering from Alzhiemer Disease. He is losing is battle now, after 8 years. So sad to watch him drift away. I am also raising my grand daughter, now age 12. I have had her for the last 6 years, She keeps life interesting, and it is fun to share my hobbies with her. My grand mother and mother taught me, so now that I have a girl I get to help her. FUN.
