 Has it really been almost 5 years since I posted?  So much has happened to the world and my life since my last post!  Just coming off a pandemic, and a very crazy teaching year, I am really amazed how quickly this time has gone.  I am due for an update! 

Well I am still a FCS teacher, finishing my 7th year in my district, we bought a house 3 years ago on a beautiful island, and everyday seems like I am on a vacation! As I am turning 66 this summer, I am made aware of how much I appreciate my hubby Ted, and how we get to do life the way we really want to, at this stage of our lives.  He works part time at Freedom Boat Club, and I get to teach Foods and Adulting, to high schoolers. I get to participate in a busy community including now playing pickleball, member of 2 quilt groups, Visual Arts Club on the island, and membership chair for my state professional organization, SCATFCS; and still get to go boating on the weekends.  I still have an Etsy shop, that I hope to get going again this summer.  Still sewing and crafting, though mask making was a big part of my rencent year past year.

Last spring we took a day trip for a doctor visit in Charleston, where we made a

reservation to a newly opened restaurant, named Lenoir! ( One of my fav public tv shows is Chef and the Farmer, and more recently Somewhere South where you can see where her interests are now going!  The teacher in me, and guiding my classes in cooking, is thrilled with her latest projects.

Vivian) Well I got to totally geek out when Vivian Howard came to our table to say hello!  Truly a highlight that made my week and month!  

As another pandemic school year is counting down, I am very grateful for staying safe and for so much that is positive in my life.  Daughter Kate is engaged to her long time sweetheart, and we are deep in planning for a June wedding. Son is maintaining our home in Ohio, for the day we may eventually sell.  Here are a few fun pics from recent activities in my foods classroom,
