I am a hard-working home-owner, who has decided to whip my home into better shape by doing most or all of the work myself. I have spent as much of this summer as I can addressing things that need to be repaired (there are so many little things!!), reducing the items accumulated over the years in hopes of starting and completing home improvement and other projects, and actually improving the interior of my 140-year-old working-class house. So my hands are tough, and my muscles are often pushed to the limit, and I am exhausted at the end of the day - working my own hours on the house often means that day doesn't end until midnight. I am also a grandmother with 3 daughters and 3 grandchildren, 2 of whom share my home along with their mother. I have also been gardening, and trying to keep up with the lush plant growth on my little city lot. Next year might have to the be the year that I focus more on improving the curb appeal - I am only one person!

I live in the Twin Cities because of the vibrant health and optimism of the people here, along with the bikeways, which allow more safe bike commuting than most other places in the entire United States of America. I also enjoy the overwhelming cultural, dance , music, and theater options for entertainment and indulging my own personal growth and social needs. I have been participating in a couple pub sings at 2 venues: The Dubliner in St. Paul, and Merlins Rest in Minneapolis.

I have 1 dog named Boss. He has indoor and outdoor accommodations. He barks a lot when people knock on the door, but then mellows out after he meets guests.
I enjoy kayaking on waterways in the Twin Cities area, and if you do, too, perhaps I could take you out kayaking if you don't mind the rather toyish feel of my 5-year-old grandson's little orange 8' kayak.
I enjoy contra-dancing, cajun dancing, and the celtic and eastern European folk music scenes. I also have a number of Indian connections after having studied Kathak dance for a number of years, and being one of 2 primary local photographers for a Bharatanatyam company, Ragamala. I dance with a Hungarian Folkdance performance group called Videki.
I am passionate about reducing the use of herbicides and pesticides, and reducing the use of inorganic (chemical) fertilizers to maintain turf grass for lawns, espcially in children's play areas, and residential lawns. I am a strong proponent of eating the landscape, and generating and nurturing an edible landscape for everyone who wishes to nurture him/herself, friends and relatives with food that can be gathered and/or grown nearby.
