The Master and Commander
Michael Pollan says to "Eat food. Not much. Mostly fruit and vegetables."
I am changing myself by realizing that food is to be enjoyed, not devoured.
I will retrain myself to enjoy healthy habits, thus obtaining health as my reward.
I hope that these changes will be so apparent that I will be able to influence many people to have this Sparkly life style.
Everyday I am working at adding new positive attitudes about myself and others. I am trying to make myself back into what I once was, only much better!
I live in northeastern Ohio in the middle of nowhere, which is a good place to be! I live with my husband of 34+ years with our two cats, a dog, and sundry chickens.
We have one daughter who is in graduate studies at the College of William and Mary.
My greatest achievement was going to a foreign country when I was 16, alone. I spent 10.5 months in a town where I did not speak the language when I arrived and no one spoke English. There was no Internet at that time and I only spoke to my biological parents twice in that time. I learned Portuguese as a child would learn it. I became a different person.
I worked for years as an apprentice shoe repairman, a cosmetologist, a custom seamstress, an office clerk, a warehouse manager for an Internet company, a custom picture framer and a land title examiner (which I did the best and longest).
I am an assistant to the Office Manager in a local company.
My greatest pleasure is creating and designing. I work in paper arts, sewing, crochet, knitting, jewelry making, etc.
I am also a gardener, both vegetable and ornamental. I preserve a lot of our food so that we have better quality food.
Reading is also a favorite of mine. My all time favorite books include, but are not limited to A PRAYER FOR OWEN MEANY by John Irving, THE POISONWOOD BIBLE by Barbara Kingslover, CHRONICLE OF A DEATH FORETOLD by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Oh, how can one list their favorites?
