I am a happily retired teacher, living in South Dakota by way of Colorado, New Hampshire, Virginia, California, Illinois, and Georgia, which is my site of origination. I love spending lots of time reading, mostly nonfiction these days, and way too much time thinking about quilting, gardening, traveling, writing, rather than ‘doing’ any of it. The primary goal of my blog is to increase my happiness by adding the wonderful online community that I already follow (and constantly discover) to my current circle of friends. An important secondary goal is to provide public accountability as I change from a happy dreamer to a happier do-er!!
