Shaping a Genesis week from the chaos of my life
I lead a pretty simple life, really. I’m married to a man who treasures me and now I’m mature enough to realize what a blessing that is. Together, we care for our home and our cat. We like to travel, but we love to be within our own walls too. I love that we have created a sanctuary together.
I enjoy cooking, though usually I use recipes as general guidelines, and seldom follow them. Baking is another matter–I almost always use a recipe, at least the first time.
Recently I’ve discovered canning. My grandmother was a major influence in my life, and this simple activity of harvesting and preserving reminds me of her. The memories are gentle, though I miss her often.
I studied music–flute and singing–and I enjoy playing the piano for myself. As a member of Toastmasters, I developed and embraced skills in speech craft. A few years ago I started to write a novel and it’s finally finished. I just started a second one, and no one is more surprised than I am about that. I also dabble in photography, though I dislike manipulating the images afterwards. Unless otherwise noted, all of the pictures on this blog are mine. I’m happy to share them–but please, don’t steal my stuff.
