Some of what there is to know about me

I live in Down East Maine, USA with my wife A, my two cats Allie Cat and Zumba, and a whole house full of books, craft supplies, inherited dishes, and unfinished projects.

The best part of my work for a local non-profit agency is helping people.  For years I worked with small businesses in the area (it always involved shopping) but now I am more of an office person, writing grants and things like that. I still love it, but it is different. Not so much shopping, and I have to sneak out to go to the farmers market, where it used to be just part of the job. But I manage it.  🙂

I love to stay home, there is so much going on here, so much to do.  But when I am not at home, I am usually out visiting friends and family, shopping in small locally owned businesses (especially love bookstores and yarn/fabric stores!), or taking a class to learn a new craft. And once in a while, I am traveling off to see something interesting I read about in a book.

  1. If I had read this one earlier I would have know you were in Maine and not Connecticut. I still would like to email if you want to. It sounds as if we have some similarities. I hope to hear from you. Melanie

    1. hey, wow, thanks so much! I really appreciate it, and will check it out and follow the rules, but probably not until Monday – it’s kinda busy around here for a few days. 🙂

  2. Thanks for your visit to my blog! I wanted to drop by and invite you to join in Project O which is a look into how opinions are formed around the world. If this interests you and if you have a social issue you might want to share with people, please consider joining! The post can be found at the top of my blog under Project O – The Original Project Idea and the template is the post next to it. Thanks again for taking the time to visit my blog! –OM

  3. Thank you so much for following my blog 🙂 I love your gravatar picture 😉 I see you knit little hats they are so cute I have just started and I am loving it

  4. Hi there, I found your blog through a “like” you posted on an article I posted. The first thing I noticed while browsing around is that you have been at this “blog thing” for several years. We’re actually still newbies but we’re having a terrific time. Receiving “likes” from blogs we’re unfamiliar with is one of my favorite parts of blogging. It opens the door to some truly awesome bloggers/friends. Thank you for finding us!
    By the way (and yes, this is a bit of self-promoting- but it’s truly a great cause)— anyway we’ve received numerous positive comments on the “LGBT Woes” article. Yes, we know that we may eventually receive some negative press but we’d like to share it with as many people as we can. Our goal is to help educate and we’re hoping to get lots of people on board to help us in this venture so if at all possible please join our quest and reblog the article!
    Thank you and now I’m off to browse around.

    1. I followed a link to your post, and enjoyed it. Following links and likes is a great way to discover new blogs. 🙂 Also, when you find a blog you like, look and see if they show a roll call of what they are following – it’s a rabbit hole, but a fun one. So many people are writing about so many things.
      I did enjoy your post, and thought you wrote it well. Good job!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
