Responsible for: You know how people in families take on different roles, such as “the responsible one” or “the funny one” or whatever? I think I’m the one who has taken on the role of making sure everyone is OK emotionally- cheering ‘em up, calming ‘em down, whatever is needed.
Day job: Quit teaching to be SAHGM to grandson, 12 months
Other passions: Photography, road trips (back roads please, no interstates), camping (RV), baking, history, fall, holidays and birthdays, sewing, Texas music and musicians such as Robert Earl Keen, ZZ Top, Willie, Los Lonely Boys, Delbert McClinton, and sports (especially football).
Favorite author/books: Can’t really choose a favorite, but I am looking forward to reading Stephen King’s latest, “Doctor Sleep”. It’s about the little boy from The Shining (Danny Torrance) as a grownup. I think it will make a great scary October read, don’t you? And of course I love reading cookbooks of all kinds, especially older and vintage ones.
Favorite blogs: Impossible to choose a favorite, but I do love all my Texas sisters’ blogs, such as Cooking With K (cookingwithk.net), My Turn for Us (myturnforus.com), Miz Helen’s Country Cottage (mizhelenscountrycottage.blogspot.com), and Tumbleweed Contessa (tumbleweedcontessa.com)
Dream vacation: I took one dream vacation a couple of years ago- spent a couple of weeks out in the Alpine/Fort Davis/Big Bend area. I’ve been to Canada and Mexico and would like to go back. I haven’t been up into the NE United States- I’d like to do a fall foliage tour. My sister wants me to go to Europe with her, but there are so many places here in Texas and the U.S. that I still want to visit! J
