I am a grandmother of 7 and love every minute of it. I found SparkPeople a while back and really, really love it. I have made quite a few of the recipes too. It is really nice having that resource and love SparkPeople. I have lived in South Carolina for 16 years and love living here and the people and life style. Life is great!
I would like to be at my ideal weight by summer because we are going on two vacations which on which I will be wearing bathing suits. Also, we live within walking distance from the ocean so will be wearing bathing suits real soon.
I love reading, scrapbooking, fishing, boating, and doing things outdoors. James Patterso, Phillip Margolin, Mary Higgins Clark, Jodi Picolt, Leslie Glass, are just a few of my favorite authors.

Thank you for commenting on my "herb" blog. I'm inspired by anyone who doesn't use salt any more. It lets me know it IS possible. I'm cutting down more and more. My sister, who of course was raised on the same food I was, has cut out salt almost entirely, mostly for the sake of her husband's health. I don't have that big incentive, so am moving slower. I'm at the point now where I cook little with it, but do salt at the table.... more taste for the amount you use.
Herbs normally DO need sun (think Mediterranean weather), but here in Texas, full sun is too scorching hot, so some herbs need a little protection, although in general, herbs grow well here. I've tried to grow tarragon, but it's too hot here. Basil, thyme and oregano, commonly used herbs, do quite well, as does Rosemary. South of here in central Texas you can find huge big shrubs of Rosemary planted right in the ground and thriving. Once you "get into" herbs, you'll be fascinated the rest of your life. Go buy some basil this spring. It's an annual, and needs to be kept from growing to seed (which it desperately wants to do!), so it must be picked frequently. Try a big leaf on a herb bread, cream cheese (I'd use Laughing Cow spreadable cheese) sandwich.... Yummy!
