This old photograph shows a love I have had since my first piano lesson when I was seven years old. I have played for many churches for over 50 years and I’ve taught piano for 35 years.
When I was seven years old, I sent a homemade birthday card to President Eisenhower. Several weeks later I received a thank you card from the White House.
I lived in Puerto Rico for two summers.
I learned to make bound button holes in a tailoring class in High School.
I ate stewed eggplant and onions almost every day of both my pregnancies. No pickles and ice cream for me!
I like to collect cousins…especially the ones who are also researching their ancestry!!
I used to think I had a natural tan but when I moved from Florida to Texas and then to the Northwest, the tan faded. Much to my total surprise I was covered with freckles. Hundreds of them. Who knew?!
I’ve always had a dream of cross-country skiing. Now, I think I’m too old with too much arthritis. It was a fun dream!
I have taken the Jung and Briggs Myers Typology test twice, 30 years apart. Both times I tested ISFJ (78% Introvert).
I’m a dreamer and creator, a list maker and idea collector. I have more ideas than I could ever possibly get done.
I learned to read with Dick, Jane and Spot!! They were such dear friends!! “Run, Spot, run.”
This past year I learned how to art journal. Love it! I get to tear paper, paint, sketch, stamp…and journal.
