I am a 34-year-old mother of three from the Midwest. I have many interests and hobbies, some of which include politics, Libertarianism, reading, current events, crocheting, sewing, and volunteering for the Red Cross. I am an eternal optimist… after I get my morning tea.
I have always been a writer and a bit of an artist. I began reading at age 1, wrote poetry by the time I was 7, and continued to pursue literary interests until derailed by an extreme interest in computers as I went into college. This was unfortunate as I realized too late that my true passion is writing, painting, doodling, and immersing myself in books. Now that I am a stay-at-home parent, I at last have found an outlet for my creativity — occasionally blogging here, writing poetry, and trying to satisfy my inner muse once all the chores are done. Life is rough.
I am not currently reading anything (sad panda!) but I will be compiling a Libertarian Summer Reading Challenge after I visit my downtown library hub. I hope that some of you will join me on this adventure! My all-time favorite read is The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck, if you’re looking for something new and delightful while I’m making a list and checking it twice.
Future plans for this blog include running a concurrent blog with my sewing and crocheting exploits for those interested in needlecraft. I am not a master seamstress, nor am I the most amazing wielder of a crochet hook, but I do collect amazingly cute patterns and am deft at making common sense alterations (and interpreting often confusing directions). Food blogging is also tempting as I am quite the prolific baker.
