Me? You are curious about me? Sometimes I think I am defined more by dichotomies than anything else:
–I am nobody important but I am a child of God.
–The Husband once wrote to someone that I am his “sunshine and flowers,” but I know I am the lucky one in this good marriage.
–I homeschooled our three grown and nearly grown kids, but surely I am the one who learned the most.
–I was the mayor of our Tiny Town for twelve years, but I am the most non-political elected official I know.
–One of my favorite things is to cook with quality ingredients like the produce from my garden, but I still love a good corndog.
-I love to teach, but I still have so much to learn.
And I am so pleased to have you visit my blog. It is the place where I write about the things that matter in life – making a real home and inner growth and the best things I know to do with heirloom tomatoes – all the things I think about while I cook and putter and boogie in the kitchen. I hope you find here a boost, an idea, a nudge, or possibly an occasional kick in the pants to keep you going in your life, and I’ll appreciate it if you’ll do the same for me. Thank you for joining in!
