Christian wife & mother of seven (four adopted foster children grown up now & three biologicals)--my baby(!!!) is an 11th grader! ... plus five grandkids (ages 5 - 20 y.o.) and a new foster daughter (18 yo); been married 34 years now to the *same wonderful man.*
Love cooking and being the happy little home-maker. One of the greatest accomplishments of my life (so far) was home-schooling our two youngest sons through 8th grade and our daughter through high school!
Enjoy writing my own blogs and maintaining their FB pages:
as well as quilting, writing, flower-gardening, and home-organizing, ...and very active in our church, Bible study, and singing alto in choir. Plan to get back to writing and earning money at it! AND I work as a virtual assistant--check out www.elance.com for more info on VA-ing.
Live in a contemporary home with an in-ground pool (fun!) in a medium-size city in West Virginia (quite the change from our previous circumstances in rural Wisconsin).
***God is good!***

Kneading bread, fussing with stir-fries or lasagna, special sauces; presenting the meal--no matter what it is!--I love doing it out of love for my family.
Canning or preserving our own food (after it's done is when I REALLY enjoy it!), making my own home-made mixes, preparing large batches or doubling recipes for the pantry or freezer (my own version of Once-A-Month-Cooking)...I was doing it l-o-n-g before Taste of Home, Gooseberry Patch, and Martha Stewart started calling it "good things!"
Hubby and The Peanut Gallery are my willing taste-testers. As much as possible I make everything from scratch. "Love" is the secret ingredient in every meal! And I really do have a little jar of it!!
Favorite restaurant? My own dining room table. A close second would be Panera Bread, Ruby Tuesday, Outback Steakhouse, and Red Lobster. Also love Chick-fil-A sandwiches. The Waterfront in downtown La Crosse (WI) got my fav restaurant vote!
