Seven things about myself are:
- I am currently reading The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak: historical fiction with a twist. DEATH, the omniscient narrator follows a young abandoned girl during Hitler’s Holocaust. Not quite finished, but I highly recommend this read.
- I am working on my first novel: 1950’s and ‘60s fiction.
- I have a cat named Midnight, whose every wish I gladly fulfill. She has her own grooming table where her masseuse (that’s me) brushes, combs and massages her several times a day, while she manicures her nails on her very own tree cookie.
- I have a wonderful husband, who is a veritable genius at just about everything. He’s turning our little old shack into a min-mansion.
- My husband called me “fire woman” since I keep the fire box filled and the home fires burning when outdoor New England temperatures demand a respite from the cold.
- I love art and find my treasures at local thrift shops and yard sales. Fifty of these great buys ($25 or less each) take turns adorning the walls here at the old homestead.
- I encourage milkweed to grow and flourish in my flower gardens just so that I can marvel at the amazing Monarchs (nature’s stained glass sun catchers) as they fulfill their dreams.
My fifteen nominees are:
