First Post on my blog!!

I hope to use this blog to help get my numerous recipes in order, to share my triumphs and tragedies, learn to use my digital camera, and to get my creative juices flowing. I will also share about family and friends and anything else I feel the need to comment on. I hope you will join me and maybe find some inspiration of your own.

I thought I would use this first post to share about my family. I have a wonderful DH named Randy, two sons Chris and Zac, and pets Buster and Angus (a white dog and a black cat respectively). DH works as a newspaper editor for a small weekly newspaper. Chris is here visiting for the holidays from Florida. He flys home tomorrow. He works in the restaurant business. Zac is a teenager and for the most part much smarter than any of the rest of us. Sometimes his vast knowledge is downright frightening at times.

As for me, I am a Dialysis nurse during the day and a budding home chef when not at work. I have a collection of cookbooks that I need to cook from and enjoy reading cooking magazines.

I will try to post some photos of me and my family.

    Heck, I wish we could eat during dialysis (like Gary) then we could get you to cook for us.
