I work as a letter carrier for the US Postal Service in Tacoma, WA. Since I work 40+ hours a week, I don't do as much cooking as I used to. I would use quick-to-fix recipes for two people. I love to sew for my grandkids, but don't get a lot of time for that either. I have a little Noble Macaw named Sam and a Lhasa-Pug mix named Bandit. I am an avid reader (just about any fiction) and an even more avid shopper! I love going to Oregon to shop.
