I live in Cape Canaveral,Florida. I like to watch the shuttles go off! I love the beaach here also. We all got to see a white whale (only 50 or so of them left in the world) playing in the water about 30 ft out in the ocean. That was great! I am an artist. I love painting what I see. I create paintings, and I also paint on canvas totes, hats, aprons and even furniture! I don't have a favorite cookbook....I just love making up my own reciepes or ones my friends makeup or find. I have a daughter who will be 30 in July! I just can't believe how fast the time passes. She and I both love to hike and ride bikes. We love doing what we can to save the enviroment. She lives in Portland , Or. I wish we lived closer to each other !
