Scat Cat Quilt - Ashley's Christmas Present
My '37 Ford Sedan Delivery
Our bikes. His is a Harley (in back), mine a Yamaha (in front).
Married 30 yrs, I'm a 50 yr old mother of 2 - boy (29), girl (16). 3 years ago I started a new job, working as a security technician. I really like it, but I'm hoping to move up.
I started quilting about 10 years ago and I love it. I find it to be very relaxing. I also love the feeling of accomplishment when the quilt is done. Of coure, I'm a fabraholic - just can't seem to stop. But I make wonderful things out of it all. On top of this hobby I also love photography, crafts, reading, travel, working in my gardens, my dogs, cats, cooking and a variety of other things. And no, I'm not Martha Stewart, but I'm close.
One of my newest hobbies that I share with hubby is - Motorcycles. Yep, I said it. We're off and riding!! We got motorcycles around Christmas time. We've both had our licenses forever, but I haven't ridden in over 30 yrs. Hubby was patient and retaught me to shift and everything and now we're off and riding. At first I was nervous, afraid I wouldn't like it, but I love it!! Something about riding down the road on that bike makes me feel alive!! Our kids and some friends thought we were crazy - at our age - but we explained, we're not getting any younger and this life is only so long. We're living it to the fullest!!
I became a first time grandmother about 3 years ago. Hannah Isabelle came into our lives and swept us away. She is a bright, energetic, smart, bubbly ball of fire!!!!! She's talking up a storm now, and very entertaining to boot. Grams and Pops love whatever time we get to spend with her!!!!!
We live in the country, in a small town, where we both grew up. I'm surrounded by woods and all things nature. Deer in the lane, racoons in the trees, fox in the fields....and birds everywhere. I love it, and I love being where I grew up!!
Well, that's about it, I'm all tangled up in life!!
#1: Be Selfish - care about me for once!!
#2: Get my butt up and moving.
#3: Make smart choices - not easy choices.
#4: Loose the lbs. that are holding me back.
#5: Live life to its fullest!!
The Spark plan. Paying attention to the fork going into my mouth. Making smarter choices. Drinking my water. Getting my butt moving.
I live in Harford Co., MD. Out in the country. I love it here. This is where I was raised. My parents live about a 5 minute walk from my front door, through the woods. I have the beauty of nature all around me. And I'm finally able to share that with my kids.
My two favorite sayings are:
The trouble with trouble is, it usually starts out like fun.
It's all fun and games until someone looses an eye, then it just fun you can't see.
