I'm from New Orleans originally, left to go to LSU, then to graduate school in Boston. Married, moved to Lethbridge Alberta ( Canada) for 10 years, raised kids, then returned to New Orleans in 2002.
I am working on developing self sufficiency- a greenhouse in the backyard, working on a hydroponics setup and am really interested in vertical gardening and aquaculture.
My specialty is teaching reading, but I also love to make beautiful crafty things, and scrapbooks. Probably the best thing I can share is my laugh :) and my perspective on life, raising kids, homeschooling and what I know about New Orleans cooking and history.
Interests in no particular order: Music, dogs, farms, organic gardening, scrapbooks, hydroponics, aquaculture, good food, kitchen parties, dancing around the house, smell of night flowers and pine trees, festivals, walking in the woods,reading powerful novels and good comics, some TV- silent moves, ahhh- there's more...
Philosophy of life so far- all great religions core belief: kindness towards others, forgiveness, belief that the universe is good, and we have a purpose for being here. and that in the long run, ten years from now, whatever is happening now, probably wont matter.
