I plant beds that run the perimeter of my front yard with native flowers for the pollinators.  However, good intentions have morphed into my actual new hobby of pulling the “bad” weeds, so my “good”weeds can thrive.

I love to walk with my husband and three dogs - almost every day unless it's below 30 or raining.  We also love to go kayaking, zip-lining, and hiking whenever we can get away from every day busy-ness.  I am an avid cross-stitcher and quilter, craft sewer.  And I love to read - mostly mysteries, stories about dogs, and my Bible.  I also volunteer for the service organization (ESA) that I am a member of, and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital,and my church; I also make medical dolls and donate them to my local Children's Hospital.

I belong to a group called "Express Yourself" which is a writing group.  Usually, I write poetry (I have 2 scrapbooks of my poems!) plus recently I have been trying short stories. I do this more for my own enjoyment and read to my friends, who seem to enjoy them (or are exceedingly polite).  I also love to bake and make treats for my friends that we eat over our weekly kaffeeklatsch!  I love reading but have slowed down to poor eyesight. I have to get my cataracts taken care of this year!

   I have enjoyed writing as a hobby since I was 8 years old. For years I wrote poetry and stories just for fun, in school, in college and in my profession of Nursing. Eventually when I was in my 60s I wrote a devotional book called “I Thought There Was a Road There…..” and then some years later when in my mid-70s I wrote another true story book called “Separated Lives”. Even though I could not do many physical activities at that point, I could still write. I would urge interested senior citizens to explore this opportunity. This was a Godsend to me as I explored and truly enjoyed this path!

In the warm months I plant vegetables and flower plants. I also take care of my Koi pond. In the winter, I dedicate myself to crochet, indoor plants and my bettas. All year round I love to read and play brain stimulating games.
