My husband never was without a job. That is a praise in of it's self. We made the decision early in our marriage that I would stay at home with the children, Especially since he traveled from early Monday to late Friday. We gave up a lot of frills in order to do that. “Homemaking when done correctly can kill you “ Erma Bombeck.

We love our little house where we have lived for 45 years. It is just a little house-house , it is warm in the winter and cool in the summer .We have never wanted to move up to bigger and bigger houses. We have been happy to just be.
I am so happy to see a beautiful sunset, to smell the freshness after a rain, or look at beautiful flower, I can not resist gathering leaves in the Fall. My favorite time of day is late afternoon when the shadows are long.
In our yard there are several weeds that are just beautiful and they are hardy. We let them grow at random and it is refreshing to look at. Kinda of a country garden. We have traveled some. When the children were young we went to Colorado nine years in succession.
We took the children and their grandmother to San Francisco. to visit another brother .
