Married over 35 years to one "great" man. Raised 6 children,13 grandchildren. I am a Clinical & Medical Hypnotherapist,Naturopathic Doctor, Master Herbalist, and now am working on my Masters Degree in Psychology. I love working with people & have a private practice. It was my Father who was the greatest cook & he cooked every sunday although Mom was a great cook and baker. I learned so much about cooking from both of them. I "love" animals. From my Mother-in-law I learned all the Middle East Cooking & it is my favorite food. My pet peeve is people who won't try new foods,they don't know what they are missing. I do a lot of crafts, help friends with home decorating ideas, make all my own Christmas tree ornaments (very unconventional ones & colors)& some oil & pastel painting.
