Tell me a little about your family and some specialthings about your family!
I am married and have a son and astep-daughter. My son is a MassageTherapist and will be traveling to Spain for basketball camp and internationaltryouts this coming summer. Mystep-daughter is a lawyer in the Denver area.
My family loves gardening, every year weplant a vegetable garden including tomatoes, potatoes, leafy greens, mint andsquash even my dog Shadow loves the leafy greens. One night a week is at home movie night, we watch everything from horror (not my favorite), comedy, drama andsci-fi.
What’s your favorite thing to do on theweekends? Do you have a favorite show that you can’t wait to watch?
When I am not learning to make jewelry, itwould have to be Home improvement projects. If you ask my husband we have 1001projects to complete inside and outside our home. Wetake pride in every improvement we complete. If I had to choose one, my favorite show would have to be the comedy“The Big Bang Theory.” It is funny and makes you laugh which helps relievestress.
When you take a break from working, you are always reading. What are your top 3books that you’ve read? Why do you love them?
Top three books I have enjoyed would be Downa Lost Road by J. Leigh Bralick, Double Cross by James Patterson and all JoanneFluke books. I like science fictionbecause it takes you away from current reality and makes you think “whatif”. James Patterson, what can’t you sayabout James, he knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat with hismysteries and Joanne Fluke (Blueberry Muffin Murder and Cream Puff Murder) takeplace in a small town where the main character is a would-be detective who ownsa bakery so there are recipes you can try.
