I'm not working at the time, have retired hopefully, this is the second time. Have always loved to cook and collect cookbooks. And theres no favorite each one was special. Gave many of them to a Senior Center when I moved to Windsor, no longer had room for them. Still have many to enjoy. Am givig many more away as I still have to many, taking all my favorites and scanning them and giving the books away. Had a very special one that was from 1903, it also told you how to make cleaning products and how to clean house. Gave that to a young man that had helped me move in Nice at Clearlake, a few years ago. He collects cookbooks. I am still at the lake only now in Upper Lake. My passions would be cooking, gardening, and sewing and many other crafts, such as woodworking, ceramics, jewelry. Christmas is my favorite time of year to make the crafts for. Much of my gardening is put up for winter and drying of herbs. Have many of my crafts in a shop. Pet peeve would have to be not taking the time to do something right the first time. If I had a month would love to take a vacation, I have alway wanted to go to Italy. Would love to cook with them.
