About me

Gender FEMALE
Industry Non-Profit
Occupation retired social worker
Location Menomonie, Wisconsin, United States
Introduction I retired from my career as a social worker about 4 years ago, went on a trip, and then returned to work, part-time. In March, I finally decided to totally leave the world of work, and am now enjoying long, lazy days as a retired person. I share my home with my patient husband of 40+ years and with a cat that we are fostering for our middle child. She lives in Maine with her daughter, Lily. We also have a son in Milwaukee with a wife and 3 children, and the youngest child is a social worker in the Minneapolis area. When I'm not at my sewing machine, which I try to use at least once a day, I can be found in the garden or swimming pool or bike path in the summer, or reading a good book in front of the fireplace with a stew or soup bubbling on the stove.
Interests Gardening, reading, cooking/baking, and more
Favorite Books Anne Tyler, Clyde Edgerton, John Sandford, Maeve Binchy, Rosamund Pilcher, Barbara Kingsolver and lots of other authors as well
