I love to read, garden, drink tea, go to the bookstore, hang out at the ocean, play with the kids, watch movies, travel, sew/quilt. I walk into a bookstore and feel relaxed. I like to have a myriad of choices at hand. I never know what I will be in the mood for.
I am mom to two boys 13 and 16 and stepmom to a now grown up *girl* who made me a Gramma at age 30. Happily married to my beloved for 17 years ... PatrickC.
I collect Turtles including Zuni Fetishes:
"The turtle is a symbol of the earth in most Native American cultures. He is also associated with self-reliance, non-violent defense and being a skillful navigator through life's obstacles. Though he is not a traditional puebloan fetish, he is carved frequently today by many different artisans. Some will carve them in a realistic style and others will employ inlay and sgraffito to decorate the turtle's shell."

And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my stacers. style="color:#077">Which movie was this quote from?" method="get">Get your own quotes:
