Amazingly, half of the year 2006 is over. It is time to start something new, namely, in this case, a blog. So here's to my blog, which is dedicated to expressing myself about what is happening in my world. Those who know me regularly beg me to publish. You know who you are, and you must now shoulder the blame, or the glory, of yet another person nattering away in written form.
Expect millinery motivated musing, garden updates, research revelation, weather reports, and random observations of life as viewed through the eyes of a 52 year old woman. Who I am, for those who for some odd reason have stumble upon this URL, (probably thanks to Google blog search), is best summarized as follows:
Second Generation San Diegan, now living in beautiful Kingwood Texas, a forested community above Houston.
I have a BS in Home Economics Communications from Oregon State, and a Masters degree in Library Science from Texas Womans University.
I currently work part time as a reference Librarian for a community college.
I've been happily married to Bernie for 29 and 1/2 years.
We have two children, Laura, a cancer nurse (I am to lazy to look up the technical name), who currently lives in San Diego, and Jeff, who sells insurance products to credit unions in Salt Lake City.
My parents and Bernie's parents all live in San Diego.
Three cats shed in our home: Tiggie, the orange cat who worships Bernie, Tidbit, the multicolored wide load girl, and Hart, the grey and white "kid".
As promised, a beginning weather report: heavy rain and thunder.
As to millinery, I have two hats needing lining (Daphne style, for my hat friends), and a straw needing a silk behind the head tie scarf added. It was blocked on a bowl purchased at Marshalls!
As to research: Watching the Avian flu in Indonesia very carefully.
As to gardening: The volunteer cherry tomatoes are flourishing, almost chest high.
My fondest hope is that this blog will be a witness to a peaceful happy life, and that any and all readers will be in the midst of the same peacefulness in their world. Which is probably the only state of being that will allow anyone to have time to read this stuff anyway!
