If you are wondering about my border on this page, I shot this picture on our way to annual hiking trip to St. Peter's Dome north of Mellon, Wisconsin. This happens to be on one of the forest service roads. People travel to distant places to see beauty but find that beauty close to home. I am retired and love it! Some of my favorite things include hiking, swimming, camping, disk golf (world's largest is in Highbridge, WI-Edgar Sawtelle country), reading (member of 2 book clubs), traveling, yoga, line dancing, etc. I also volunteer for the local thrift shop and am a pool monitor. DH and I have been married 35+ years. We walk 3-6 miles daily. While in AZ we hike once a week with a hiking club. May through October we live in northern Wisconsin overlooking a lake with a beautiful island and the other six months we live in southern Arizona overlooking the Santa Ritas mountains (where Madera Canyon is). We have 2 sons, 1 DIL, and a grandson who will be two in May and the delight of his grandparents. He is a great eater and very interested in cooking! Loves to help cook-just like our sons. Our younger DS is attending school again after being laid off in Oct. 2008. My cooking has to fit into our lifestyle -simple, healthy, and tasty.
