Blogger, Writer, Chef, Gardener, Knitter... I love doing just about anything that strikes my fancy. I can't function as a singular hobbyist. I am a self-employed freelancer, I don't function well in the "real" world, although I love people, I have very introverted tendencies. I love learning, I research any/everything. I was the kid who spent the second half of study hour in the school library reading encyclopedias. Now that the internet exists, I spend a ton of time on my city library archives. I'm also a mom, I have a son and two daughters, all fairly young.
