I'm a Vermonter(for real!) and I'm happiest and most comfortable when I'm outdoors in the wilderness. I love to hike and snowshoe and ski. I'm a bookkeeper and a gardener and a caretaker, and love to spend time with my family - two daughters and two fabulous grandchildren. I enjoy sharing my unique home with visitors and pleasing folks with delicious, healthy and always home-made goodies of all sorts. I grow and buy organic food as much as possible. My daughter raises pigs organically and chickens and we have a lovely teeny tiny mini horse named Ari. I have a very well behaved dog named Degas, and a character of a cat named George. I love to travel when I can, to out of the way places, and I'm a voracious reader. I'm fascinated by people and their journeys - I'm open and honest and caring.
