I am a quilter, a gardener, a reading tutor for adults, and a woman who is trying to get healthy once again. I'm a voracious reader, an enthusiastic bird-watcher, and a happily-married wife and stepmother of four. I'm 50-something and deal everyday with perimenopausal fuzzy-headiness, hot flashes, and a memory full of huge holes! Through it all, I try to keep my chin(s) up because attitude really does change everything. Welcome to my blog!
