My husband and I have been married for 25 years and are the mother of two girls. We have lived in the country on the same piece of ground the entire time. We were fortunate enough to be able to build a home in 2005, which I designed and love. I work as an occupational therapist in the county hospital and am the only OT that lives in the county. It is a job I was made for and love. Helping people is rewarding and challenging. I enjoy gardening, which can be a challenge on the windswept ground we live on but I have enjoyed finding what does work (and doesn't!) I also like to quilt, which I really have little time for these days and cooking, of course. I don't have a favorite cookbook, I have dozens of favorite recipes, which I keep in a computerized cookbook. More and more of these recipes come from 'Zaar.
