So here goes:
Seven things about me:
1. I love chocolate. I no longer try to live on it, but I still eat it. I was spending $15/week on chocolate. The good stuff. But now I don’t. It’s still yummy!
2. I love just about anything with four legs and fur. Well, almost anything. There are exceptions. But mostly dogs, cats, horses. I currently have one dog, two cats, and three horses. I also have eight chickens.
3. I’m trying to grow my own food. This is my third year with a vegetable garden. The tomatoes are doing fairly well, especially the yellow cherry tomatoes. I found out about pruning tomato plants this year. I’ll be overrun with potatoes soon and that’s good. The peas didn’t fare well again. I have chard, melon, and turnips, too. The carrots refused to grow. And I had few strawberries.
4. I love berries. All kinds of berries. And berry season is almost over here. I’ll be sad when it is.
5. I hawk someone else’s hummus at farmers’ markets. Good stuff. This job keeps me entertained.
6. I love music and dancing. I used to dance many styles – jazz, ballet, Polynesian! A girl with long, really long, blonde hair doing the hula!
7. I clicker train my animals. Or, at least, I try to. I’m better with the horses than with the “new” eleven-year-old dog!
