Getting healthier every day

I'm on my way to becoming the person I was meant to be: happy, healthy & fit! Little late in life; but, better late than never! Looking forward to building a tiny house & living in a tiny home community somewhere in the U.S.

Personal Information:
Currently live in Crystal Lake, IL with two remaining cats; we lost Tommy 2/8/14. Work p-t & volunteer at local library.
Until 2002 was vegetarian for 15 years; during & since Alaskan cruise I've added occasional fish. Beautiful daughter now currently in Telluride, CO & my loving son in Portland, OR.

Other Information:
Reading is my favorite pastime: novels, murder mysteries, biographies, The Spark....almost anything.
I'm working p-t, volunteering at library, hanging out with other friends (sounds like a teenager) doing fun activities: dinner/movie, concerts, Bingo, etc; would love to get back to playing ping pong.
I LOVE to cook--mostly vegetarian meals; & earned my Baker's Asst. Certificate in 2010, as I've ALWAYS loved to bake as well.

good morning! thanks for commenting on my page emoticon

To make my background, I did a google search for images of lemons and daisies (since I'm participating in 2 challenges). After picking out the ones I liked and saving them to my harddrive, I opened PowerPoint and put the images & text boxes in there.

When you have that done, in SP, go to "Edit My Page" and there you find the option to upload a background image.

Hope you're having a great week so far! Marie
